After this week's episode of NXT 2.0, the next special event card, Heatwave, has undergone major updates. In fact, on August 16 this special long awaited by fans of the WWE Universe will be staged in which there will be titled defenses and vendettas ready to go into action.
Specifically, Carmelo Hayes' NXT North American Championship will be up for grabs against our compatriot Giovanni Vinci. Afterwards, the female title will also be up for grabs with the leader of the Toxic Attraction, Mandy Rose, called to defend against the #1 contender Zoey Stark.
Roxanne Perez seeks revenge and to succeed she will face Cora Jade in a one on one, while Santos Escobar will face Tony D'Angelo in a Street Fight with special stipulation. If Santos wins, then the Legado del Fantasma will return free and devoid of any constraints imposed by Tony and his companions; if instead the Italian-American triumphs then Santos will be forced to leave NXT.
NXT wants to give a show
Could it be the real possibility of finally seeing Escobar on the WWE main roster? Finally, the main title of NXT will also be up for grabs with Bron Breakker called to defend the belt against “The Irish Ace” JD McDonagh.
After the signing of the contracts last week and after what was seen in the promo video last night, it promises a fight to the death between the champion ready to inflict pain and a challenger ready to receive and resist without fear.
What do you think will be the winners and who the losers of this important show? Obviously we at Worldwrestling will talk about it today in a new episode of Next Big Thing, the show curated by Leonardo Lucarini and available every Wednesday at 19:00 within the Twitch Open Wrestling TV channel and, of course, in the classic podcast format across Spreaker, Spotify, Apple Podcast, Amazon Prime Music and all major channels available.
Obviously, stay tuned to our site to learn more about the status of NXT 2.0 also thanks to our interesting reports soon available on our home. Recently, Dolph Ziggler talked about how different NXT is compared to Ohio Valley Wrestling.
Ziggler recently appeared on WWE's After the Bell podcast. “This facility, ridiculous. It is an Olympic training facility for up and coming developmental talent. It’s unreal. The chance that you have Shawn Michaels walking around backstage helping you figure out how to wrestle. Are you kidding me?" commented Ziggler.
