Updates on the NXT Breakout tournament

Jul 21, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

The first round of the 2021 WWE NXT Breakout Tournament continued during last night’s NXT show as Odyssey Jones (fka Omari Palmer) defeated Andre Chase (fka Harlem Bravado) to advance.

Last week’s tournament opener saw Duke Hudson defeat Ikemen Jiro to advance.

The first round will continue next week with Carmelo Hayes vs. Josh Briggs. After that there will be just one more first round match – Joe Gacy vs. Trey Baxter, which should take place on the August 3 episode.

The winner of the Breakout Tournament will receive a title shot of their choosing.

Triple H took to Twitter after last night’s tournament match and praised Jones.

“@oshow94 with a definitive #NXTBreakout performance. This year’s tournament continues to highlight #WWENXT’s newest talent!!! #WeAreNXT,” he wrote.

Stay tuned for more on the 2021 NXT Breakout Tournament. Below are a few photos and videos from last night’s match, along with Triple H’s tweet:
