A big title match is set for the July 12th edition of WWE NXT 2.0.
Hot off of beating Toxic Attraction for the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship at WWE NXT Great American Bash, Roxanne Perez announced that she’s cashing in her Breakout tournament contract for another title match. Next week, the young star will challenge Mandy Rose for the NXT Women’s Championship.
The title match comes after Perez won the first women’s Breakout tournament last month by outlasting Kiana James, Lash Legend, and Tiffany Stratton. She and Cora Jade subsequently became the #1 contenders by defeating Kayden Carter and Katana Chance, and they bear Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne to win the gold at NXT Great American Bash, If Perez beats Rose, she will become the first woman to simultaneously hold both the singles and tag team championship in NXT.
Mandy Rose has reigned as NXT Women’s Champion for over 249 days since beating Raquel Gonzalez at Halloween Havoc 2021. The leader of Toxic Attraction has gone on to defend against Jade, Kay Lee Ray, Io Shirai, Dakota Kai, and Wendy Choo.
Additionally, next week’s episode will also feature the re-debut of JD McDonagh, formerly known as NXT UK’s Jordan Devlin. Apollo Crews is also slated for competition as he will go one-on-one with Giovanni Vinci after the two had a heated in-ring confrontation during Great American Bash. Vinci interrupted Crews when he came to the ring for a promo and vowed to prove that he was the supreme athlete on NXT.

Later in the show, Solo Sikoa confronted Von Wagner when he and Robert Stone stated that the fans were the reason that the big man wasn’t on the show. Sikoa called Wagner out for this unreasonable explanation, and they came to blows. The broadcast team subsequently confirmed that they will collide next week.
Below is the updated lineup for July 12:
- JD McDonagh debuts

- Roxanne Perez vs. Mandy Rose (c) for the NXT Women’s Championship
