WWE fans can gear up for an action-packed episode of "WWE NXT" on June 13, as the company unveiled two exciting matches scheduled to take place. In a highly anticipated showdown, Chase U's rising star, Thea Hail, will square off against the formidable Cora Jade, a former "NXT" Women's Tag Team Champion.
The announcement comes h*t on Hail's recent victory in a gripping battle royal on Tuesday's "NXT" episode, securing her a future opportunity to contend for the prestigious "NXT" Women's Championship. The battle royal was a star-studded affair, featuring the likes of "Raw" Superstar Dana Brooke, Lyra Valkyrie, Fallon Henley, and Lash Legend.
Hail emerged triumphant amidst the chaos, earning a shot at the coveted title currently held by Tiffany Stratton. Stratton, who clinched the championship in a thrilling tournament final against Valkyrie at "NXT" Battleground on May 28, will undoubtedly keep a close eye on the upcoming clash between Hail and Jade.
Explosive Showdown: Perez vs. Paxley!
Adding to the excitement, the second match announced for the forthcoming episode of "NXT" will witness a fierce encounter between former "NXT" Women's Champion Roxanne Perez and the determined Tatum Paxley.
The intensity between Perez and Paxley escalated during last week's battle royal, where Paxley orchestrated her own elimination to assist Blair Davenport in launching a vicious assault on Perez. With both competitors harboring animosity and seeking redemption, their clash promises to be a hard-hitting showdown.
These thrilling matchups join a stacked lineup for next week's "NXT" episode. Fans can look forward to witnessing the clash between Baron Corbin and IIja Dragunov, the Heritage Cup defense by Noam Dar against the tenacious Nathan Frazer, and the explosive six-man tag team bout pitting Schism (comprised of Joe Gacy, Rip Fowler, and Jagger Reid) against "NXT" North American Champion Wes Lee, Tyler Bate, and the returning Mustafa Ali.
Ali's surprise comeback to the developmental brand on the May 30 episode provided a shocking moment as he came to the aid of Lee and Bate after they fell victim to an attack by Schism leader Joe Gacy. Corbin, who also made his long-awaited return to "NXT" that same night, is poised to deliver an unforgettable clash against Dragunov.
With a lineup bursting with talent and a fusion of rivalries and grudges, the June 13 episode of "WWE NXT" is set to be an adrenaline-fueled extravaganza that no wrestling enthusiast can afford to miss. Tune in to witness these electrifying matches and the fierce competition that continues to define "NXT" as a breeding ground for future WWE superstars.
