Two matches added to this week's WWE NXT


WWE has announced two additions to the lineup for this Wednesday's episode of NXT.

Shotzi Blackheart vs. Toni Storm and Kushida vs. Cameron Grimes will both take place on NXT this Wednesday. Tommaso Ciampa vs. Velveteen Dream and Ember Moon vs. Dakota Kai are also set for this week's show.

In storyline, Blackheart got to pick her opponent for this week's NXT after William Regal liked the job she did hosting Halloween Havoc last Wednesday. Blackheart said she wants a fresh opponent and noted that she's always been a big fan of Storm.

Blackheart got involved in the Tables, Ladders & Scares match between NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai and Candice LeRae at Halloween Havoc after someone wearing a Scream costume tried to help LeRae win the title. Blackheart laid out the person in the costume and Shirai retained her title. The person in the costume also helped Johnny Gargano win the NXT North American Championship from Damian Priest earlier in the show. Indi Hartwell recently became aligned with LeRae and Gargano.

Storm returned to WWE television at TakeOver 31 last month and confronted Shirai. Storm defeated Aliyah on NXT three weeks ago.

Dexter Lumis defeated Grimes in a Haunted House of Terror match at Halloween Havoc last week. WWE is hyping that Kushida is looking to extend his recent winning streak.
