Wes Lee will look to remain NXT North American Champion as he makes his first title defense tonight.

Lee goes one-on-one with Carmelo Hayes in the main event of tonight's NXT. If Hayes wins, he'll become a three-time North American Champion.

At Halloween Havoc last month, Lee and Hayes were both part of a five-way ladder match for the vacant North American title. Lee defeated Hayes, Oro Mensah, Von Wagner, and Nathan Frazer.

Mandy Rose still holds NXT Women's Championship gold after defeating Alba Fyre in a Last Woman Standing match last Tuesday. Former NXT UK wrestler Isla Dawn made her surprise debut during that match, pushing Fyre off a ladder and sending her crashing through the announce table.

An appearance by Toxic Attraction (Rose, Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne) is set to kick off tonight's episode.

Plus, Wendy Choo vs. Cora Jade and Ivy Nile vs. Kiana James have been announced for tonight. WWE has also teased that tonight is where the mysterious Scrypts will be revealed.

Our live coverage begins at 8 p.m. Eastern time.

**********

Opening the show is Toxic Attraction with an in-ring promo. NXT Women's Champion Mandy Rose is flanked by Jacy Jayne and Gigi Dolan. Rose is celebrating her successful title defense last week.

Rose defeated Alba Fyre last Tuesday, thanks in large part to interference by Isla Dawn. Nevertheless, Rose claims she won "all by myself." Rose then brings up the Iron Survivor Challenge, as that will determine her next challenger. 

Jayne then chimes to say her and Dolan can now focus on regaining the tag team titles. They are all interrupted by the NXT Women's Tag Team Champions, Katana Chance and Kayden Carter.

They banter back and forth insulting each other, until Carter and Chance rush into the ring. A brawl erupts, but Chance and Carter are outnumbered. They are beat down and left laid out.

A skit from earlier today shows Tony D'Angelo bantering with NXT North American Champion Wes Lee.

Before heading to the ring, Cora Jade cuts a promo where she insults Wendy Choo and the audience.

McKenzie Mitchell interviews Kaina James, and James cuts a promo on Ivy Nile and Fallon Henley. When James leaves, Javiar Bernal comes in with a list of names on dot matrix paper. I had no idea dot matrix paper still existed, but I guess it does. The joke is the list of names is ridiculous opponents, like Elon Musk or Drake.

After some mic work, Ava Raine picks someone out of the crowd to take the empty seat. 

Gacy says tonight they are creating a new holiday, The Day of Schism Invictus. Personally, I thought this all is pretty lame.

Gacy ends the segment with a "sacrifice," which is him giving the plant from the crowd a Rock Bottom through the table.

Trick Williams is doing a backstage interview when he is confronted by Wes Lee. Williams is wearing a cap the reads "Trick Willy," which becomes ironic. Lee basically tricks Williams into barring himself from ringside for the title match later tonight.
