The new match will see Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar and Tyler Breeze in compete in singles action off the back of last week’s attack by Legado del Fantasma on Breezango.
Tyler Breeze found himself on the receiving end of Legado del Fantasma’s latest painful warning. But he’ll get a chance for payback this Wednesday night on NXT, as he faces NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar in a non-title bout.
Escobar, Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza have dished out ruthless beatdowns left and right in recent weeks, though the champion has carefully classified their actions as simply defending the honor of lucha libre culture.
Last week, they brutalized Fandango after snatching him in the parking lot, later using him to lure Breeze out before overwhelming him with the numbers advantage.
Will Breeze be in any shape to obtain retribution and potentially position himself favorably in the NXT Cruiserweight Title picture? Or will he run into the same fate as everyone else to oppose Legado del Fantasma thus far?
Other matches set for tomorrow’s show include Damian Priest vs Bronson Reed, and the next TakeOver ladder match qualifier three-way which will include Kushida, Cameron Grimes and a mystery opponent.
As always we will have live coverage of NXT tomorrow along with AEW Dynamite.
