WWE NXT is set to hold its first Lights Out match next week.
Tiffany Stratton will go one-on-one with Wendy Choo on the August 23 edition of WWE NXT 2.0 in a Lights Out match. This comes after weeks of backstage encounters that continued after Stratton beat Choo at NXT Great American Bash last month.
Considering this is a first of its kind for the NXT brand, the rules for the Lights Out match have yet to be revealed.

Plus, as announced on “Heatwave”, Grayson Waller will host the first edition of his new talk show, The Grayson Waller Effect, with special guest Apollo Crews. The two men have been locked in a budding rivalry in recent weeks, with Waller taking issue with the way Crews came back to NXT.
Elsewhere on the show, Gallus, fresh off their arrival on NXT 2.0, confronted Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen to a match for the NXT UK Tag Team Championship. Mark Coffey and Wolfgang previously held the gold for 497 days, and they told the champions that the gold didn’t belong in America. Briggs accepted the challenge, and the broadcast team subsequently confirmed the match for next week’s episode.
