An NXT Cruiserweight Title bout has been added to Wednesday's show.
NXT announced as Santos Escobar will defend his NXT Cruiserweight Title against Jake Atlas tonight on NXT. Escobar defeated Atlas in a non-title bout at NXT Hallowen Havoc with the help of Legado del Fantasma
Jake Atlas made it clear last week that he’s far from finished with Legado del Fantasma and will have an NXT Cruiserweight Title opportunity tonight against Santos Escobar.
After Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde aided Escobar to a non-title win against Atlas at NXT Halloween Havoc, the NXT Cruiserweight Champion was ready to move on from his latest challenger. Atlas had other plans, as the up-and-coming Superstar attacked Legado del Fantasma in the Capitol Wrestling Center parking lot last week.
Can Atlas end Escobar’s reign? Or will Legado del Fantasma strike back?
Here is the current lineup for Wednesday's NXT:
* NXT North American Championship: Johnny Gargano vs. A Mystery Opponent
* NXT Tag Team Championship: Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch vs. Tyler Breeze & Fandango
* Xia Li vs. Raquel Gonzalez
* Candice LeRae vs. Toni Storm
* NXT Cruiserweight Championship: Santos Escobar vs. Jake Atlas
Fightful will have live coverage of NXT beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
