Escobar challenged Devlin to a unified NXT Cruiserweight Title match at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver. Devlin responded by busting the mouth of Escobar with a headbutt.

The bout was made official for NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver on Friday's 205 Live.

Devlin won the NXT Cruiserweight Championship at Worlds Collide 2020, but was stuck overseas during the COVID-19 pandemic and unable to defend the title in the US. He had made multiple defenses of the belt on NXT UK.

A tournament was held to crown a new NXT Cruiserweight Champion in May 2020. Escobar won the tournament and has held the belt ever since.
