There will be plenty of hand-slapping in seven days time, as NXT announced two big tag matches for next week’s episode.
First, there will be a triple tag match to determine the number one contender for the Women’s Tag Team Championship. Zoey Stark & Io Shirai will face Dakota Kai vs. Raquel Gonzalez and Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon in a star-studded clash. This bout was booked after Stark and Shirai came out victorious against the Robert Stone Brand and were confronted by the four other women.
The second tag match will be a mixed one, as Mercedes Martinez and Jake Atlas will take on Xia Li and Boa of Tian Sha. Li attacked Martinez this week to gain even more momentum ahead of this contest.
Also announced for next week will be a “face-off” between the NXT Tag Team Champions, MSK and their respective challengers, Timothy Thatcher and Tommaso Ciampa. These two duos will collide at the Great American Bash.
Plus, Cameron Grimes will compete, but his opponent was not named.
