-Candice LeRae vs. Lacey Evans
-WWE NXT Tag Team Champions Moustache Mountain vs. Dave Dixon and Carl Axelrod
-Kona Reeves vs. Max Humberto
-Aleister Black appears to address his win at NXT Takeover Chicago. Also on the show is Tommaso Ciampa, Ricochet and former Tag Team Champions The Undisputed Era.
WWE.com has hyped LeRae vs Evans with the following:
With her mind presumably still racing after the beating her husband Johnny Gargano sustained against Tommaso Ciampa at NXT TakeOver: Chicago II, Candice LeRae will attempt to refocus as she squares off against Lacey Evans on WWE NXT. Evans, perhaps the most coldblooded woman in all of NXT, is unlikely to have sympathy for LeRae’s plight. Will Candice Wrestling put the events of Chicago behind her, or will the next issue she deals with be the effects of a Woman’s Right?
