Santos Escobar advances to Stand & Deliver ladder match on WWE NXT

Two of the five North American title match participants at Stand & Deliver are set.

Two of the five competitors in the NXT Stand & Deliver ladder match for the North American Championship are now set. 

Santos Escobar defeated Cameron Grimes in a qualifying match on tonight's NXT 2.0 episode to advance to the ladder match on April 2. Escobar and three competitors to be determined will challenge Carmelo Hayes for the North American title. 

Following his victory, Escobar had a backstage confrontation with Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio. Escobar and Mysterio ultimately shook hands, and a future match was teased between the two, as Escobar asserted that he was the greatest luchador of all time, not Rey. 

Stand & Deliver is set for Saturday, April 2 at 12 p.m. Eastern time on Peacock and WWE Network. The NXT North American title match is the only match official for the show at this point.
