Kushida answered Escobar's open challenge on April 13 and defeated him to capture the NXT Cruiserweight Title. After being laid out by Escobar and Legado Del Fantasma last Tuesday, Kushida showed up on May 4 to challenge Escobar to a title bout. Escobar had no issue accepting the challenge.

The bout will be contested under two out of three falls.

Plus, NXT General Manager William Regal announced that Karrion Kross will battle Austin Theory in singles competition.
