WWE Match In Jeopardy As Star Not Backstage At Show

WWE Match In Jeopardy As Star Not Backstage At Show WWE

A match for tonight’s WWE NXT Heatwave premium live event could be in jeopardy as one star apparently has yet to arrive at the show.

With just over 30 minutes to go until Heatwave begins, the NXT Tag Team Championship match could be at risk of changing.

The match has been advertised as Axiom and Nathan Frazer defending their NXT Tag Team Title against Chase U’s Andre Chase and Duke Hudson.

However, WWE made a “breaking news” announcement during the Heatwave pre-show that could change things.

As stated by backstage correspondent Sarah Schreiber, Frazer hasn’t yet arrived at the show.

Schreiber stated that if he didn’t show up, Axiom may have to defend the championship on his own.

This is a continuation of the storyline that has seen some recent issues between Frazer and Axiom, as Axiom has accused Frazer of focusing too much on his own singles career instead of their team.

In recent weeks, Frazer has challenged for both the NXT Heritage Cup and WWE Speed Championships, and also entered the NXT Championship #1 contender battle royal without telling Axiom he was doing so.

We will of course keep you updated throughout the night if this does indeed lead to the match changing.

UPDATE – Later in the pre-show, Frazer arrived in the locker room, but Axiom was not happy and once again cautioned him about his lack of focus on their partnership.
