Gonzalez vs. Stark added to WWE NXT, The Way set for action

Before challenging for Io Shirai's NXT Women's Championship at TakeOver Stand & Deliver, Raquel Gonzalez will be in action on NXT tonight.

WWE has announced that Gonzalez vs. Zoey Stark will take place on tonight's NXT. The episode is the go-home show for TakeOver: Stand & Deliver.

Gonzalez & Dakota Kai defeated Shirai & Stark in a tag team match on NXT last week. After pinning Stark to get the win, Gonzalez attacked Shirai and slammed her onto the announce table.

Shirai vs. Gonzalez for the NXT Women's Championship will be the main event of TakeOver: Stand & Deliver night one. The two-night event is taking place on Wednesday, April 7 and Thursday, April 8. Night one will air live on the USA Network, while night two will be live on Peacock in the United States and live on the WWE Network everywhere else.

It's also been announced that The Way's Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell will be in tag team action on tonight's NXT. The team they'll be facing hasn't been revealed.

Last week, there was a backstage segment where NXT Women's Tag Team Champions Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon were confronted by LeRae & Hartwell.

Tonight's NXT will also include a Prime Target special feature building up Adam Cole and Kyle O'Reilly's unsanctioned match for TakeOver: Stand & Deliver night two. Here's the updated lineup for tonight's show:

  • 12-man battle royal to decide the six participants for Gauntlet Eliminator match at TakeOver: Stand & Deliver night one (Dexter Lumis, Bronson Reed, Roderick Strong, Kushida, Leon Ruff, Jake Atlas, Pete Dunne, LA Knight, Cameron Grimes, Isaiah "Swerve" Scott, Austin Theory, and Tyler Rust will be the battle royal participants)
  • Raquel Gonzalez vs. Zoey Stark
  • Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell in tag team action
  • Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter vs. Tian Sha
  • Roderick Strong vs. Cameron Grimes
  • Prime Target special feature: Adam Cole vs. Kyle O'Reilly

Once tonight's battle royal gets down to the final six, the order of elimination will determine the entry order for the Gauntlet Eliminator match. The winner of the Gauntlet Eliminator match will challenge for Johnny Gargano's NXT North American Championship at TakeOver: Stand & Deliver night two.
