Ember Moon Battles Dakota Kai, Cameron Grimes Begins Butler Duties, More Set For 7/13 NXT

NXT has added a women's contest to Tuesday's show.

NXT announced that Ember Moon will face Dakota Kai in singles competition on the July 13 episode of the program. Kai and Moon have been on opposite sides of the ring for months now with Kai aligned with NXT Women's Champion Raquel Gonzalez and Moon teaming with Shotzi Blackheart.

Gonzalez is expected to be in Kai's corner, but there is no mention of Shotzi in the preview. Shotzi was moved to WWE SmackDown this past Friday where she is now teaming with Tegan Nox.

Plus, Cameron Grimes starts his stint as LA Knight's butler and Dexter Lumis faces Santos Escobar.

On top of all that, Bobby Fish has accepted the open challenge from the Diamond Mine and he will face Tyer Rust.

From WWE:

In the wake of the ultra-turbulent NXT Women’s Tag Team Title No. 1 Contender’s Match two weeks ago, Ember Moon will now go one-on-one with Dakota Kai.

With the always-dangerous NXT Women's Champion Raquel Gonzalez expected to be in Kai’s corner, will The Shenom be able to overcome the odds? Don’t miss NXT, tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network.


Following his loss in the Million Dollar Championship Match at The Great American Bash, Cameron Grimes must now suffer the unenviable fate of being LA Knight’s butler!

What mortifying tasks will Grimes be subjected to under the thumb of the Million Dollar Champion? Find out tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network.


After reemerging last week at The Great American Bash for an impromptu reunion with Indi Hartwell, Dexter Lumis is back in action.

Lumis is set to go one-on-one with a vengeful former NXT Cruiserweight Champion and Legado Del Fantasma’s leader, Santos Escobar.
