New matches for tonight’s NXT

Apr 27, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

Two new tag team matches have been announced for tonight’s WWE NXT episode on the USA Network.

After weeks of issues between the two teams, tonight’s show will feature Killian Dain and Drake Maverick vs. Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner of Imperium.

Alexander Wolfe will be at ringside for the match. He has been trying to recruit his former SAnitY tag team partner into Imperium as the group looks to expand on both NXT brands.

WWE has also announced that NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart will face The Robert Stone Brand’s Aliyah and Jessi Kamea in non-title action.

It was announced last week that The Way’s Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell have earned a future title shot from Moon and Blackheart. In the arrival video below, Robert Stone indicated that Aliyah and Hartwell will become the new #1 contenders if they can get a win tonight. Moon and Blackheart previously retained over Aliyah and Mercedes Martinez on the March 24 NXT show. Martinez was filling in for Kamea that night due to an injury. The Way will likely be watching tonight’s non-title match closely and a date should be set for the next title defense.

On a related note, Triple H took to Twitter and hyped tonight’s Bronson Reed vs. Austin Theory singles match. Reed will earn another shot at NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano if he can get the win tonight.

“A COLOSSAL opportunity at the #NXTNATitle awaits @bronsonreedwwe if he can defeat a very focused and very talented member of #TheWay in @austintheory1… A HUGE opportunity at stake tonight on #WWENXT! @USA_Network,” Triple H wrote.
