Carmelo Hayes And Ilja Dragunov Face-To-Face, Heritage Cup Championship Bout, More Set For 2/27 NXT

The card for the February 27 episode of WWE NXT takes shape.

As was originally announced for the February 20 episode, Ilja Dragunov and Carmelo Hayes will go face-to-face. On February 20, Hayes entered his favorite barbershop to explain that he turned on Trick Williams just to simply be the one to get him first. Now, Hayes is hoping to challenge Dragunov for the WWE NXT Championship at NXT Roadblock.

Ilja, on the other hand, is coming for the former NXT Champion's soul.

Also set for February 27, Ridge Holland will address the WWE Universe. Holland was ashamed of his actions on the February 13 episode where he assaulted Gallus' Wolfgang, Mark Coffey, and Joe Coffey with a steel chair. He hopes to show wrestling fans that the violence they see is not a true reflection of him.

Rounding out the card, Noam Dar will defend the NXT Heritage Cup Championship against a member of the No Quarter Catch Crew. The Crew decided that they would pick their representative by way of Catch Rules. Essentially a take on the Freebird Rule, Noam Dar will not know who he is defending his trophy against until the bell rings.
