Johnny Gargano and Austin Theory will be in action later tonight on NXT.
In a video posted on WWE's social media platforms, Theory revealed that he had spoken with NXT General Manager William Regal and that the two of them will face off later tonight. The announcement comes shortly after it was revealed that Ember Moon will be doing an interview on NXT.

WWE also announced that Shotzi Blackheart will face Candice LeRae on Wednesday's NXT with the winner moving on to challenge Io Shirai at NXT Halloween Havoc.
Candice LeRae bested Shotzi Blackheart last month to earn a matchup with NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai. Can she again hold off Blackheart when they meet one-on-one with another opportunity to challenge Shirai at NXT Halloween Havoc on the line?
The Poison Pixie prevailed by the narrowest of margins over Blackheart after they were the final two competitors remaining in last month’s Battle Royal, but LeRae was unable to topple The Genius of the Sky at NXT TakeOver 31.
Meanwhile, Blackheart, who will host NXT Halloween Havoc, has flexed championship-quality bona fides in recent weeks. She pushed Shirai to her limit in a singles bout last month, in addition to picking up several victories.
Can she take the next step toward another match with Shirai — this time for the NXT Women’s Title?
WWE previously announced that Bobby Fish and Roderick Strong of the Undisputed ERA will team up to meet Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch in tag team competition. The winning team will earn a crack at NXT Tag Team Champions Tyler Breeze and Fandango. In addition, Damian Priest vs. Dexter Lumis for the North American Title was added to the show.
