WWE has taken to its website and social media to announce a new match for tomorrow’s Halloween Havoc special edition of NXT.
The bout will see Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar face Jake Atlas in a non-title match.
After sending Santos Escobar a painful message, Jake Atlas will get a chance to tangle with the NXT Cruiserweight Champion one-on-one.
Atlas will face Escobar in a non-title match at NXT Halloween Havoc.
Atlas recently aligned himself with Isaiah “Swerve” Scott and Ashante “Thee” Adonis” in the fight against Escobar and Legado del Fantasma. Though Joaquin Wilde pinned Adonis in last week’s Six-Man Tag Team bout, Atlas planted Escobar with a massive cartwheel DDT off the announce table.
Will Atlas again get the better of the champion, or will Escobar make Atlas regret taking up arms against the powerful faction?
