Cruiserweight title number one contender's match set for NXT

A number one contender's match on this week's NXT will decide the first challenger for Jordan Devlin's Cruiserweight title.

Lio Rush and Angel Garza will face off on NXT tomorrow night, with the winner becoming the number one contender to NXT Cruiserweight Champion Devlin. WWE hasn't announced when the winner will be getting their title shot.

Devlin was in action in non-title matches on both NXT and 205 Live last week. He defeated Tyler Breeze on NXT and Tony Nese and Rush in a triple threat match on 205 Live. Nese was pinned in that triple threat.

Garza defeated Isaiah "Swerve" Scott on NXT last Wednesday, then cut a promo saying he wants the Cruiserweight Championship back. Garza also defeated Cedric Alexander on Raw last night.

Devlin became the Cruiserweight Champion by defeating Garza, Scott, and Travis Banks in a fatal four-way match at Worlds Collide over Royal Rumble weekend. Garza appeared to have the match won near the finish, but Devlin gave him a headbutt and then pinned Scott after hitting Devlin Side.

Tomorrow's NXT is the go-home show for TakeOver: Portland. The TakeOver special is being held at the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon on Sunday.
