At NXT TakeOver on Sunday, the NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar will put his belt on the line against Isaiah "Swerve" Scott. The two Superstars work double duty on both NXT and WWE 205 Live, and the Purple brand has decided to air a special episode tonight highlighting the champion and challenger.
Swerve and Santos Escobar have been in a heated feud throughout the summer of 2020. However, their history in the company dates back to the NXT Cruiserweight Championship Tournament where Swerve picked up the only victory anyone has over Santos Escobar, then known as El Hijo Del Fantasma.
With the NXT Cruiserweight Championship being defended on a TakeOver for the first time in the title's history, the Land of the Cruiserweights wanted to set full focus on the top two stars of 205 Live.
