Three matches, Ripley-Gonzalez segment added to WWE NXT

WWE has added three matches to the lineup for the final NXT episode of 2020.

After returning to NXT television last week and attacking NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai, Mercedes Martinez will return to action on NXT tonight. Her opponent for the show hasn't been announced.

Bronson Reed vs. Isaiah "Swerve" Scott will kick off NXT tonight. Breezango (Tyler Breeze & Fandango) vs. The Grizzled Young Veterans (Zack Gibson & James Drake) has also been added to the episode.

Reed returned to the ring on NXT last week and quickly defeated Ashante "Thee" Adonis. Scott was also victorious last Wednesday, defeating Jake Atlas in what was a rematch after Atlas had defeated him earlier this month. Scott used a headbutt during the match and then hit the Confidence Boost to get the win. Scott -- who had declined a handshake from Atlas after their previous match -- then offered Atlas a handshake. Atlas left the ring and didn't accept the handshake.

WWE has also announced that tonight's NXT will feature a special look at the history between Rhea Ripley and Raquel Gonzalez ahead of their Last Woman Standing match at New Year's Evil next Wednesday. Here's the updated card for tonight's show:

  • NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano defends against Leon Ruff
  • Roderick Strong vs. Pete Dunne
  • Mercedes Martinez returns to action
  • Breezango vs. The Grizzled Young Veterans
  • A special look at the history between Rhea Ripley and Raquel Gonzalez
  • The announcement of the 2020 NXT year-end award winners
  • Bronson Reed vs. Isaiah "Swerve" Scott (will kick off tonight's show)
