WWE announces Toni Storm vs. Candice LeRae for NXT


WWE has announced an addition to the lineup for this week's episode of NXT.

Toni Storm vs. Candice LeRae will take place on NXT this Wednesday night. The match comes after LeRae got involved in Storm vs. Shotzi Blackheart on NXT last week.

Storm got the win against Blackheart due to Blackheart being distracted by LeRae appearing on the video screen. After costing Blackheart the match, LeRae ran over Blackheart's tank and destroyed it.

While destroying her tank, LeRae told Blackheart that this is what happens when you stick your nose into other people's business. Blackheart was the host of Halloween Havoc the previous week and stopped LeRae from being able to cheat via outside interference. Someone in a Scream costume tried to help LeRae in her Tables, Ladders & Scares match against NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai, but Blackheart laid the person in the Scream costume out and Shirai retained her title.

Storm has gotten wins against Aliyah and Blackheart since returning to WWE television last month.

Here's the updated card for this week's NXT:

  • NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano defends his title against an opponent who has yet to be revealed
  • NXT Tag Team Champions Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch defend their titles against Breezango
  • Raquel Gonzalez vs. Xia Li
  • Toni Storm vs. Candice LeRae

Last Wednesday, Gargano vowed to break his curse of never being able to successfully defend a title. Gargano said he'll be facing a "worthy opponent" on this week's NXT.
