We are set for a thrilling episode of NXT this week as two of the major titles on the Yellow and Black brand will be up for grabs!
Kairi Sane will go up against one of her main rivals and current NXT Women's Champion Shayna Baszler. But there's a catch to this bout. If the Pirate Princess fails to beat Baszler, she will never get a shot at the NXT Women's Championship.
The stakes are clearly high for this one. A victory can do wonders for Sane, who has been constantly coming short while battling the Queen Of Spades. But a loss could spell doom to the Pirate Princess' title aspirations in NXT.
Who will come out on top in this high stakes battle?
Buddy Murphy was the true juggernaut in 205 Live. But the loss to Tony Nese at WrestleMania 35 was a roadblock for the Unstoppable. He will be looking to bounce back on NXT this week in a big way. Probably, by taking the NXT North American Championship off Velveteen Dream's waist.
The title bout came about after a Twitter feud between the two when Dream taunted Murphy over his loss at Mania.
Surely Dream's comments could act as extra motivation for Murphy and he could come out swinging for the fences.
Will Dream retain his title or will Murphy make the North American Champion pay for his comments?
Having finally completed his fairytale run and winning the NXT Championship, Johnny Gargano AKA Johnny Champion returns to NXT tonight!
What will he have to say about his title win and the challenges that lie ahead for him? Guess you will have to tune-in to find out!
