WWE has announced a few additions to the lineup for next week's NXT.
Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon will face NXT Women's Champion Raquel Gonzalez & Dakota Kai in a tag team match on NXT next Tuesday. The show will also feature Bobby Fish's return to in-ring action as he faces Pete Dunne.
Plus, there will be a "Million Dollar Face-Off" segment with Cameron Grimes and "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase on NXT next Tuesday. DiBiase distracted Grimes tonight and caused him to lose a match against Jake Atlas. DiBiase had appeared in videos each of the past three weeks where he used his wealth to upstage Grimes.
Blackheart & Moon and Gonzalez & Kai are looking to get the first shot at Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell's NXT Women's Tag Team titles. Gonzalez & Kai were the inaugural NXT Women's Tag Team Champions, but they lost the titles to Blackheart & Moon on the same night that the titles were introduced. LeRae & Hartwell became NXT Women's Tag Team Champions by defeating Blackheart & Moon in a street fight two weeks ago.
Gonzalez retained her NXT Women's Championship against Mercedes Martinez on NXT last week. In a post-show video, Gonzalez went to Martinez and told Martinez that she respects her. Kai appeared to be angry that Gonzalez did that. Gonzalez and Kai accused interviewer McKenzie Mitchell of trying to start things when she asked them about it tonight. Kai said they can agree or disagree and still be friends.
Next week will be the first time Fish has wrestled since undergoing triceps surgery following the WarGames match where Undisputed Era defeated Pat McAfee, Dunne, Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch at TakeOver: WarGames last December.
Fish returned to NXT TV last week and saved Kyle O'Reilly from an attack by Dunne and Lorcan. O'Reilly thanked Fish for saving him, but he told Fish that he's doing his own thing now. Fish said he has his own scores to settle too and will see O'Reilly when he sees him. Fish was interviewed on NXT tonight and said last week had little to do with O'Reilly and everything to do with getting revenge on Dunne and Lorcan for injuring him.
When asked about his goals during an interview on tonight's NXT, Dunne said it's time for him to go after the NXT Championship.
Here's the updated lineup for next Tuesday's NXT:
- NXT Champion Karrion Kross defends against Finn Balor
- Franky Monet's in-ring debut
- Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon vs. Raquel Gonzalez & Dakota Kai
- Bobby Fish vs. Pete Dunne
- Cameron Grimes-Ted DiBiase Million Dollar Face-Off
