Possible Title Match For Future Episode Of NXT Revealed

A hint towards a possible championship we could see on a future episode of NXT on the USA Network has come to light.

Over the last few weeks, NXT Cruiserweight Champion Kushida has held an “open challenge”, so far retaining the title over Oney Lorcan, Santos Escobar and Carmelo Hayes.

On this past Friday’s episode of 205 Live, the main event saw August Grey defeat Ariya Daivari, and it seems like that could play into a future challenger for Kushida.

The match between Grey and Daivari was billed as the final match of their “eight-month rivalry”, and commentary hinted when Grey won that the win could propel him into a title match on NXT TV.

Grey has only had one match on NXT so far this year, which was a loss to LA Knight in March. His overall record for 2021 including 205 Live matches is 11-6.
