Zoey Stark vs. Sol Ruca added to WWE NXT

Stark will be in action for the first time since turning heel.

Zoey Stark is set for action on tonight's episode of NXT.

WWE announced this afternoon that Stark vs. Sol Ruca has been added to the lineup for tonight's NXT. It will be Stark's first match since turning heel.

After betraying Nikkita Lyons following their loss to NXT Women's Tag Team Champions Katana Chance & Kayden Carter two weeks ago, Stark addressed her actions in a promo on NXT last Tuesday. Stark said she carried Lyons when they were partners, but Stark couldn't contribute to their team. Stark said NXT is no longer about the future -- it's about Zoey Stark.

Stark declared herself to be "The Hunter" and said every other female in NXT is the prey.

The matchup between Stark and Ruca was set up by a TikTok video that Ruca posted. Ruca took exception to Stark talking trash about the new athletes in the women's locker room. Ruca said the locker room doesn't need Stark's negative energy -- and she has no problem telling that to Stark in the middle of the ring.

The updated lineup for tonight's NXT is listed below:

  • NXT North American Champion Wes Lee defends against Carmelo Hayes
  • Wendy Choo vs. Cora Jade
  • Zoey Stark vs. Sol Ruca
  • Ivy Nile vs. Kiana James
  • Scrypts will be revealed
  • Toxic Attraction will kick off the show
