Baron Corbin vs. Ilja Dragunov, Heritage Cup Match, More Set For 6/13 WWE NXT

WWE is loading up the card for the June 13 episode of WWE NXT.

As announced on the June 6 episode, Baron Corbin will face former NXT UK Champion Ilja Dragunov the following week. Dragunov confronted Corbin on Tuesday, and they agreed to face each other, but a backstage attack by Brpn Breakker took Dragunov out. Corbin then defeated Trick Williams in a singles match.

Plus, Noam Dar will defend the Heritage Cup against Nathan Frazer, who has had his sights set on the trophy in recent weeks. Dar beat Dragon Lee to retain the Heritage Cup at NXT Battleground. The June 13 episode of NXT will mark the first time the trophy is defended on NXT TV.

Elsewhere on the show, NXT North American Champion Wes Lee will team up with Mustafa Ali and Tyler Bate to face Schism (Joe Gacy, Jagger Reid, and Rip Fowler). Ali appeared on the May 30 episode of NXT and aligned with Lee and Bate. On the June 6 episode, Lee defeated Gacy, and Lee and Bate came out to even the odds when The Dyad attacked him.

The announced card is as follows:

  • Baron Corbin vs. Ilja Dragunov
  • Heritage Cup Match: Noam Dar (c) vs. Nathan Frazer
  • Wes Lee, Mustafa Ali & Tyler Bate vs. Schism (Joe Gacy, Jagger Reid & Rip Fowler)
