Big Change Made To NXT Title Match

Big Change Made To NXT Title Match

Fans of Jessi Kamea look away, because she’s been pulled from tonight’s episode of NXT, where she was scheduled to team with Aliyah in an NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship match against champions Shotzi Blackheart and Ember Moon.

Instead of Kamea, Aliyah will now be teaming with former main roster star and Retribution member, Mercedes Martinez.

From WWE:

Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon didn’t have to wait long for challengers to emerge courtesy of The Robert Stone Brand.

But with Jessi Kamea sidelined, they’ll face a curveball in their first title defense against Aliyah and Mercedes Martinez tonight on NXT.

One week after stunning Raquel González & Dakota Kai to capture the titles, Blackheart & Moon ran into Stone and company, who laid down the challenge. The champions didn’t hesitate to accept.

However, Kamea has suffered an injury, leaving Aliyah without a partner — until Robert Stone convinced Martinez to step in thanks to a special incentive.

Can Blackheart & Moon “TCB” against Aliyah & Martinez? Tune in to NXT tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network to find out!

Here’s what else you can expect to see on NXT tonight.
