As members of The Riott Squad and Absolution, respectively, Ruby Riott and Sonya Deville haven’t taken long to turn the Women’s divisions of SmackDown LIVE and Raw upside-down. Tonight, however, the new members of Teams Blue and Red return to NXT for a final showdown inside the yellow ropes, this time with no holds barred!
Riott scored a victory the last time she put her hair up and squared up with Deville two weeks ago, though The Jersey Devil came dangerously close to reinjuring the punk-rock pugilist’s leg with her dreaded Ankle Lock. What’s in store for both Superstars tonight when they throw down in a match where no hold, no matter how dangerous, is off-limits?
Additionally, Life is good for Andrade “Cien” Almas. Not only is El Idolo the keeper of the NXT Championship, but the Superstar he defeated to win the title, Drew McIntyre, is out of the picture for now due to an arm injury he suffered against Almas at TakeOver: WarGames.
As NXT General Manager William Regal’s plan for determining Almas’ challenger at TakeOver: Philadelphia begins to take shape tonight in the form of two Qualifying Matches, Almas is sitting pretty, reaping the benefits of being the titleholder.
One such perk will be the Championship Celebration that Almas’ business manager, Zelina Vega, plans to throw for him tonight on WWE NXT. What will Almas have to say about the current state of affairs in NXT, as well as the battle to determine his next opponent? Find out tonight at 8/7 C, exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network.
