Find out which NXT call up already has a match set for WWE SmackDown next week (May 12) and who he will face!
After a video package detailing the recent SmackDown draftees from NXT, Cameron Grimes appeared in a backstage segment with Adam Pearce.
Without any significant character details noted in his costuming, Grimes wasn’t particularly portrayed as a millionaire like in NXT, but he did come face to face with another formerly blessed star.
Cameron Grimes was interrupted by Baron Corbin who immediately picked a fight with the new star from NXT with a match announced for next week.
Also next week, Bayley and Dakota Kai will challenge the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez for the titles.
