NXT ON USA: July 29 preview

Posted on 7/29/120 by Bob Magee



Blor, Lumis and Thatcher battle for North American Title
opportunity

Bronson Reed has already punched his ticket to the North
American Championship Ladder Match at TakeOver XXX. Which
Superstar will be the next to join him?

The Triple Threat Match Series continues Wednesday night
with another spot in that bout on the line, and this one
will be decided between Finn Blor, Dexter Lumis and Timothy
Thatcher.

One of the few things missing from Blors long list of
accolades is an NXT North American Title reign, which hes
laser-focused on rectifying. The Prince has been a one-man
wrecking crew since returning to the black-and-gold brand,
likely making him a strong favorite should he advance to
TakeOver where he knows a thing or two about winning a
Ladder Match.

Thatcher has quickly established himself as one of the most
dangerous men in NXT. From taking down Matt Riddle in the
first-ever NXT Fight Pit to a pair of wins over Oney Lorcan,
Thatcher has proven that his mat acumen is as strong as
anyone elses in WWE.

Meanwhile, the wildcard in the equation may be the enigmatic
Lumis. The NXT Universe still has no idea what makes The
Tortured Artist tick, but that may not matter given his
unassailable abilities inside the squared circle and his
wins over Roderick Strong and Killian Dain in recent weeks.

Be sure to tune in at 8/7 C this Wednesday night on USA
Network to find out whos going to TakeOver XXX!

Keith Lee responds to Karrion Kross heinous actions this
Wednesday on NXT

Last Wednesday, Karrion Kross unleashed a brutal attack on
Dominik Dijakovic as Keith Lee watched, smashing the steel
ring steps into the NXT Champions close friend, then
putting Dijakovic to sleep as Lee watched.

This Wednesday on NXT, Lee will respond to the ruthless
message Kross sent him. What will the NXT Champion have to
say as doomsday continues to envelop the black-and-gold
brand? Find out on NXT, this Wednesday at 8/7 C on USA!

Johnny Gargano and Roderick Strong take their issue to the
ring

Johnny Gargano and Roderick Strong may not have gotten the
opportunity they were seeking, but they will have a chance
to take out their frustrations on each other when they face
off this Wednesday night on NXT at 8/7 C on USA Network.

Their spat began last week during a backstage confrontation
with Bronson Reed prior to their Triple Threat Match for a
spot in the North American Title Ladder Match at NXT
TakeOver XXX. Neither Gargano nor Strong advanced, as Reed
won after flattening Strong (and Garganos hand) with a top-
rope splash after Johnny Wrestling spiked Strong with a One
Final Beat DDT.

The two former NXT North American Champions werent finished
with each other, though, and they escalated tensions on
social media.

The NXT Universe figures to be in for a treat with a battle
between two of the black-and-gold brands best technicians,
but who will come out on top?

Shotzi Blackheart battles The Robert Stone Brands Mercedes
Martinez

Is Shotzi Blackheart ready for Mercedes Martinez to enter
the ball pit?

After defeating Robert Stones client Aliyah last week on
NXT and subsequently smashing Stones good leg with her
tank, Blackheart was met with a vicious boot to the face
courtesy of Mercedes Martinez.

The reason for the attack? Martinez wanted to join The
Robert Stone Brand right on sight, to which the
involuntarily seated Stone enthusiastically agreed.

It now seems Martinezs first item of business as a member
of the brand is to take out Blackheart for good.

Dont miss this explosive match on NXT this Wednesday at 8/7
C on USA Network!
