NXT ON USA: August 12 preview

Posted on 8/12/120 by Bob Magee

Tyler Breeze found himself on the receiving end of Legado
del Fantasmas latest painful warning. But hell get a
chance for payback this Wednesday night on NXT, as he faces
NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar in a non-title

Escobar, Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza have dished out
ruthless beatdowns left and right in recent weeks, though
the champion has carefully classified their actions as
simply defending the honor of lucha libre culture.

Last week, they brutalized Fandango after snatching him in
the parking lot, later using him to lure Breeze out before
overwhelming him with the numbers advantage.

Will Breeze be in any shape to obtain retribution and
potentially position himself favorably in the NXT
Cruiserweight Title picture? Or will he run into the same
fate as everyone else to oppose Legado del Fantasma thus

Want to be famous, Pat McAfee? Heres your chance.

After Triple H laid down the challenge on ESPNs Get Up,
Pat McAfee agreed via social media to meet Adam Cole in the
ring for a major showdown at NXT TakeOver XXX.

Cole and McAfee have long traded barbs, though only verbally
until recently as their hostility reached an entirely new
level. The two were initially cordial when the former NXT
Champion appeared on McAfees eponymous show last month. But
McAfees repeated needling eventually drove Cole to fly off
the handle and get in the former All-Pro punters face
before storming out.

Via Twitter, former NXT Champion Johnny Gargano revealed
that he and his wife Candice LeRae will once again invite us
into their home tomorrow night. If prior evenings in the
Gargano home are any indication, the black-and-gold brands
self-proclaimed Power Couple will have plenty to say,
especially after seeing NXT North American Championship and
NXT Womens Championship opportunities slip through their
fingers in recent weeks.

As Johnny & Candice prepare to open their door for the NXT
Universe less than two weeks before NXT TakeOver XXX, Johnny
Wrestling also teased the NXT TV debut of their puppy,
Pawdm Amandalorian Amidala Wrestling Gargano.

Dont miss what promises to be an eventful evening with the
Garganos tomorrow night on WWE NXT at 8/7 C on USA Network.
