Two tag team matches added to WWE NXT


Two tag team matches have been added to tonight's episode of NXT.

NXT Women's Tag Team Champions Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon will be in action tonight as they face The Robert Stone Brand's Aliyah & Jessi Kamea in a non-title match. Drake Maverick & Killian Dain will also take on Imperium's Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner on tonight's show.

WWE uploaded an interview with Robert Stone, Aliyah, and Kamea ahead of tonight's NXT. Stone vowed that Aliyah & Kamea would defeat Blackheart & Moon and become the official number one contenders to the NXT Women's Tag Team titles. Aliyah said she and Kamea can't wait to show the world that they can defeat Blackheart & Moon twice.

Indi Hartwell said on last week's NXT that William Regal had agreed to give her and Candice LeRae a shot at Blackheart & Moon's NXT Women's Tag Team titles, but when Hartwell & LeRae will be getting their title shot wasn't announced.

Barthel & Aichner defeated Ever-Rise on NXT last week. After being attacked by Imperium earlier this month, Dain came out to ringside and confronted Imperium's Alexander Wolfe during Barthel & Aichner's match against Ever-Rise. But when Maverick then ran out and went to fight with Wolfe, Dain carried Maverick away. Dain and Maverick argued in a post-show video and Maverick asked Dain if he was going to join Imperium. Dain told Maverick no and walked away.

Dain and Wolfe were formerly stablemates in SAnitY.

Here's the updated lineup for tonight's NXT:

  • Sit-down interview with Adam Cole
  • Bronson Reed vs. Austin Theory (if Reed wins, he gets a future shot at Johnny Gargano's NXT North American Championship)
  • Mercedes Martinez vs. Dakota Kai
  • Kushida & MSK (Wes Lee & Nash Carter) vs. Legado Del Fantasma (Santos Escobar, Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde)
  • Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon vs. Aliyah & Jessi Kamea
  • Drake Maverick & Killian Dain vs. Imperium (Marcel Barthel & Fabian AIchner)
