Two big matches set for upcoming weeks of NXT.
Last week, NXT General Manager William Regal announced that Io Shirai would face Bianca Belair in an NXT Women's Number One Contender's Bout in two weeks. The winner of the match will go on to challenge Shayna Baszler at NXT TakeOver: New York.
If Bianca Belair and Io Shirai both think they deserve an NXT Women’s Title opportunity, in two weeks they can fight it out, and the winner will go on to face Shayna Baszler at Takeover: New York!— William Regal (@RealKingRegal) February 28, 2019
And in two weeks, Keith Lee meets Dominik Dijakovic in a rematch from the Feb. 27 episode. That match ended in a double count out with both men wanting to continue the battle, but not being allowed to do so.
On Wednesday's episode of the program, DIY, Aleister Black & Ricochet, Moustache Mountain, and The Forgotten Sons all advanced to the semifinals.
DIY reunited to defeat Undisputed ERA, Black & Ricochet kept their momentum going by knocking off Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel, The Forgotten Sons defeated Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch, and Moustache Mountain scored a win over The Street Profits.
DIY will face Ricochet & Black while Moustache Mountain battle The Forgotten Sons in the semifinals.
