The match came together after Kushida interrupted a promo by Malcolm Bivens on Tuesday's NXT, saying Bivens talks too much and that he was ready to fight.

The bout was originally scheduled for the August 17 episode of NXT, but Kushida was not medically cleared the day of the show. Kushida later revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19.

Here is the current lineup for the September 21 episode of NXT.
