Two NXT title matches set for August 16 Heatwave special


Two title matches have been set for NXT's next television special.

It was announced on Tuesday’s NXT that Bron Breakker will defend the NXT Championship against JD McDonagh at Heatwave, which will air on the August 16 edition of NXT. Mandy Rose, meanwhile, will defend the NXT Women's Championship against Zoey Stark.

Breakker confronted McDonagh on tonight's show and revealed he would be defending the title against McDonagh in three weeks, and there would be a summit on next week's NXT to make things official. McDonagh headbutted Breakker, but Breakker struck him back to end the segment.

On Tuesday’s show, Stark came out to open the show and mentioned the title match at Heatwave. Toxic Attraction came out, which led to a match being made for later in the show between Stark and Gigi Dolin. Stark defeated Dolin. After the match, Cora Jade came out from the crowd and attacked Stark. However, Roxanne Perez, who Jade turned on two weeks ago, came out to make the save.
