Shirai segment, Knight coronation, two matches added to WWE NXT

WWE has announced a few new additions the lineup for tonight's TakeOver: In Your House fallout edition of NXT.

Io Shirai will "address the NXT Universe" on tonight's episode. There will also be a Million Dollar Championship Coronation segment where Ted DiBiase will present LA Knight with the Million Dollar title.

Two tag matches have also been added to tonight's show. NXT Women's Champion Raquel Gonzalez & Dakota Kai will face Kayden Carter & Kacy Catanzaro, while Imperium (Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner) will take on Breezango (Tyler Breeze & Fandango).

Shirai made her return to NXT TV last week. After musician Poppy was called out by Candice LeRae, Poppy brought out Shirai to beat down LeRae.

Last week was just the second time that Shirai has appeared on NXT since losing the NXT Women's Championship to Gonzalez at TakeOver: Stand & Deliver this April. Shirai took part in a sit-down interview on the April 20 episode of the show and said that she was going to take some time to rest before getting her rematch against Gonzalez when the time is right. Shirai's interview was interrupted by Franky Monet.

Gonzalez retained her NXT Women's Championship against Ember Moon at TakeOver: In Your House.

Knight defeated Cameron Grimes in a ladder match at TakeOver: In Your House to win the Million Dollar Championship.

On NXT three weeks ago, a video aired where WALTER ordered Barthel & Aichner to right the wrong of them losing the NXT Tag Team titles to Breezango last year.

Here's the updated card for tonight's NXT:

  • NXT general manager William Regal addresses the future of NXT
  • Tornado tag match: Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher vs. The Grizzled Young Veterans
  • NXT Cruiserweight Champion Kushida issues an open challenge
  • Raquel Gonzalez & Dakota Kai vs. Kayden Carter & Kacy Catanzaro
  • Imperium vs. Breezango
  • Io Shirai addresses the NXT Universe
  • LA Knight's Million Dollar Championship Coronation
