WWE adds Bronson Reed vs. Austin Theory to Tuesday's NXT


WWE has added a new match to the lineup for Tuesday's episode of NXT.

It was announced today that Bronson Reed vs. Austin Theory will take place on Tuesday's NXT. They've been feuding with each other for the past couple of weeks after Theory returned to WWE television on NXT.

On the post-TakeOver XXX edition of NXT, Theory interrupted a backstage interview with Reed and insulted Reed for not winning the North American Championship ladder match at TakeOver. The segment ended with Reed slapping Theory.

Timothy Thatcher confronted North American Champion Damian Priest on the post-TakeOver episode and said he wanted the first shot at Priest's title. Reed pointed out that he's actually beaten Priest before and said he should get the first title shot instead of Thatcher.

Reed and Thatcher then faced off on NXT this past Tuesday. Reed lost after interference by Theory. In an interview after the show, Reed demanded a match against Theory.

With NXT again airing on Tuesday due to the NHL playoffs, Tuesday's NXT is being called Super Tuesday II. Finn Balor vs. Adam Cole for the vacant NXT Championship will open the episode. A steel cage match between Rhea Ripley and Mercedes Martinez will main event the show.
