WWE announces opening match for NXT tonight

Balor, Dexter Lumis, and Timothy Thatcher, three men with quite a bit of momentum behind them, will look to qualify tonight.


We've also got Mercedes Martinez against Shotzi Blackheart, Roderick Strong taking on Johnny Gargano, and the return of the NXT Tag Team Champions Imperium. Earlier today, WWE announced what would open the show.

NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai in action

Dakota Kai and Candice LeRae have been a constant thorn in the sides of Tegan Nox and NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai. Though Nox was the first contender to Io Shirai's throne a few weeks back, they'll be teaming up tonight.


Candice LeRae and Dakota Kai have both tossed their hats in the ring as far as looking to claim the NXT Women's Championship as of late. For either one of them to prove themselves, they'll have to pick up a pinfall over the Joshi Judas tonight.

So far, the updated card for NXT is:


  • Candice LeRae & Dakota Kai vs. Tegan Nox & NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai
  • Jake Atlas vs. Isaiah "Swerve" Scott
  • NXT TakeOver: XXX Qualifier: Finn Balor vs. Dexter Lumis vs. Timothy Thatcher
  • Mercedes Martinez vs. Shotzi Blackheart
  • Roderick Strong vs. Johnny Gargano
  • Imperium returns

Be sure to tune into our NXT live card tonight!
