The March 24 episode of NXT has added several new matches with marquee wrestlers.
Increasing what was already proving to be a newsworthy evening with William Regal promising a solution for the Kyle O'Reilly and Adam Cole vendetta and the first-ever NXT Women's Tag Team Championship defense by Shotzi Blackheart and Ember Moon, the next episode of NXT will now feature Karrion Kross in action vs. Oney Lorcan, Jordan Devlin, the NXT UK Cruiserweight Champion in action against Kushida, and NXT UK Champion WALTER in a match against Drake Maverick.
In addition to that, LA Knight, the former Eli Drake, will go one-on-one with Bronson Reed after weeks of their issue building up.
LA Knight gets Colossal challenge from Bronson Reed
LA Knight has been referred to as a Main Event caliber mega-star on the black-and-gold brand, but a Colossal challenge awaits in a showdown with Bronson Reed this Wednesday night.
LA Knight has electrified NXT with his infectious personality since his NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day debut, and he backed up the talk with a win in his first clash with August Grey last week. The newcomer put himself on the towering Superstar’s radar by costing him in a matchup against Cameron Grimes, but Reed nearly returned the favor with a rip of LA Knight’s jacket that cut to the self-centered core of the headliner.
Despite the wardrobe malfunction, LA Knight continued to jaw at Reed with a social media back-and-forth setting this week’s match in motion.
Can Reed crush his challenger’s star-studded NXT dreams before they truly get started? Or will LA Knight make a monster statement with a win?

Drake Maverick talks himself into clash with WALTER
After barging into Imperium’s locker room in search of Killian Dain, Drake Maverick found himself face-to-face with the imposing WALTER, and will now battle the reigning NXT United Kingdom Champion tomorrow night on NXT.March 24, 2021
How will Maverick fare when he squares off against The Ring General in WALTER’s first match back on the stateside black-and-gold brand?
NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin to clash with Kushida in non-title bout
Jordan Devlin is on a mission to prove he’s the best competitor under 205 pounds that WWE has ever seen. This Wednesday night, he’ll get to test himself against one of the most skilled Superstars in the world.
The self-proclaimed “real” NXT Cruiserweight Champion will take on Kushida this Wednesday night on NXT at 8/7 C on USA Network.
Devlin made good on his promise to come to NXT last week, confronting NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar before delivering an emphatic headbutt and the Devlin Side.
Oney Lorcan set to face Karrion Kross w/Scarlett
Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch are no longer NXT Tag Team Champions, thanks in part to Karrion Kross’ brutality.
Lorcan won’t have to wait long for payback against Kross, as they’ll go one on one on NXT this Wednesday night.
Lorcan & Burch retained the NXT Tag Team Titles last week against the unlikely but potent pairing of Kross & Finn Bálor, who imploded. However, the successful title defense proved costly, as Burch suffered a separated shoulder courtesy of Kross.
With Lorcan & Burch unable to defend their titles, NXT General Manager William Regal had little choice but to strip them of the gold, but Lorcan isn't happy with the decision.
Terrible decision Regal. Danny is injured and we all know it's Kross' fault. Give me Karrion Kross tomorrow night on NXT or else https://t.co/KXJ05vcteK— ONEY LORCAN (@ONEYLORCAN) March 23, 2021
He’ll get his chance to channel that frustration against the undefeated Kross, who will have to be careful not to overlook Lorcan with his NXT Title clash against Bálor only two weeks away at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver.
Will Lorcan achieve retribution, or will Kross put him on the shelf alongside his tag team partner? Find out Wednesday night at 8/7 C on USA Network!
