With this week’s episode of NXT looming, a big six-man tag team match has been announced. Coming off of their match at NXT Takeover 31, Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott will clash with Santos Escobar once again. This time, they will both have partners.
Scott will join forces with Jake Atlas and Ashante Adonis to take on Escobar, Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza. Both Scott and Adonis have staked their claim for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship, so this match may hold big implications for what is next for the title. Here is the announcement and official preview from WWE.com:

“Legado del Fantasma’s war with Isaiah “Swerve” Scott rages on, but Scott isn’t short on allies willing to take up arms against them.
“Swerve” teams with Jake Atlas and Ashante “Thee” Adonis against Legado del Fantasma in Six-Man Tag Team action tonight on NXT.
When Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde got involved in Santos Escobar’s NXT Cruiserweight Title defense against Scott at NXT TakeOver 31, Adonis was there to neutralize them.
They sought payback following Adonis’ narrow loss to Atlas last week, but Atlas joined the fight, and Swerve later arrived with more equalizers in the form of steel chairs, much to Escobar’s chagrin.
Will the new alliance be enough to take down Legado del Fantasma, or will Escobar, Wilde & Mendoza have the last laugh?”
Escobar was able to defeat Scott at Takeover, but not without Legado del Fantasma getting involved. Adonis was able to help fight them off, but the distraction had already occurred.
