WWE announces Shotzi Blackheart vs. Aliyah for NXT


WWE has confirmed a third match for tonight's episode of NXT.

During Robert Stone's appearance on WWE's The Bump this morning, it was announced that Shotzi Blackheart will face Robert Stone Brand member Aliyah on NXT tonight. Karrion Kross vs. Dominik Dijakovic and Dexter Lumis vs. Killian Dain are the other matches that have been announced for tonight. WWE is also hyping that the show will feature a "huge announcement" by NXT general manager William Regal.

There was an angle on NXT two weeks ago where Blackheart rejected an offer to join the Robert Stone Brand. When that happened, Stone threw a cup of coffee over his shoulder and accidentally hit Dain. Dain then threw Stone against a cart and Blackheart ran over his ankle with the tank she uses to make her entrance.

Last week, Stone apologized to Dain and said it was all Blackheart's fault. Aliyah then showed Stone a drawing Lumis made that had Stone's ankle being run over by Blackheart's tank and Dain being hit with the coffee cup on it. Dain told Stone that if he wants to make it up to him, he'll get Dain a match against Lumis.

Stone and Aliyah also caused Blackheart to lose a match against Indi Hartwell on NXT last week.
