Tommaso Ciampa, Toxic Attraction segments added to WWE NXT


A pair of segments have been announced for tonight's NXT.

Following his title win last week, new NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa will kick off tonight's episode. Toxic Attraction (Mandy Rose, Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne) will also "address the NXT Universe" on the show.

Last week's premiere of NXT 2.0 saw Ciampa defeat LA Knight, Pete Dunne, and the debuting Von Wagner (Cal Bloom) in a four-way match to win the NXT Championship. The title was vacant going into that match after being relinquished by Samoa Joe.

After the match, Ciampa had an interaction with Bron Breakker (Bronson Rechsteiner) backstage. Breakker had made his debut by defeating Knight earlier in the show. Breakker and Ciampa congratulated each other on their wins, and they had a tense staredown as Breakker looked at Ciampa's title belt.

Rose debuted a new look with brown hair on NXT last week. She interrupted a match between Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter and Dolin & Jayne, leading to a six-woman tag where Toxic Attraction defeated Sarray, Catanzaro & Carter.

Tonight's NXT will also feature Kushida defending his NXT Cruiserweight Championship against Roderick Strong. Plus, two video packages have been announced for the episode. We'll see the story of how Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen (Ben Buchanan) became a tag team, along with part one of a look inside the life of Ikemen Jiro.

Briggs & Jensen lost to Imperium's Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner on NXT last week. Jensen was making his debut in the match.
