Pre-show match set for NXT TakeOver XXX

A pre-show match has been added to the card for NXT TakeOver XXX.

Legado del Fantasma (Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde), Breezango, and Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch will face off in a triple threat match on the TakeOver XXX pre-show this Saturday. The winning team will become the number one contenders to Imperium's NXT Tag Team titles.

Legado del Fantasma (NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar, Mendoza & Wilde) defeated Isaiah "Swerve" Scott & Breezango in a six-man tag match on NXT tonight. Scott had Escobar beat at one point but wasn't the legal man after accidentally tagging in Tyler Breeze.
