Breakout Tournament finals, two more matches set for WWE NXT

It will be Odyssey Jones vs. Carmelo Hayes in the finals of the NXT Breakout Tournament.

Hayes advanced to the finals by defeating Duke Hudson on tonight's episode of NXT. Jones booked his spot in the finals by defeating Trey Baxter last week.

The Breakout Tournament finals will take place on next Tuesday's episode of NXT. The winner will receive a title shot at the NXT championship of their choice.

Hayes was interviewed on the stage after his win tonight. Hayes said he called his shot when he said he would make it to the finals -- and he kept his word. Hayes said he went through guys who are two or three times his size to get to this point. Hayes said you have to face the final boss in the end, but the final boss is him. Jones then came out to the stage and went face-to-face with Hayes.

Jones defeated Andre Chase in the first round of the Breakout Tournament, while Hayes defeated Josh Briggs.

Jones (real name Omari Palmer) signed with WWE in 2019. He formerly played college football for Syracuse University. Hayes (formerly known as Christian Casanova) signed with WWE earlier this year. He made his NXT debut by unsuccessfully challenging for Kushida's Cruiserweight title this June.

Next Tuesday's NXT will also feature Hit Row (NXT North American Champion Isaiah "Swerve" Scott, Top Dolla & Ashante "Thee" Adonis) vs. Legado del Fantasma (Santos Escobar, Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde) in a six-man tag match and Timothy Thatcher vs. Ridge Holland.
