Bron Breakker Vs. Santos Escobar Announced For NXT Vengeance Day

For the NXT championship

Bron Breakker will make his first defense of the NXT championship in ten days time, as he puts the title on the line against Santos Escobar at Vengeance Day.

WWE's write up for the match reads, "NXT Champion Bron Breakker will look to take down the leader of La Familia in his first title defense against Santos Escobar at NXT Vengeance Day.

“The Emperor” has made his feelings towards Breakker’s quick rise to the top of NXT 2.0 clear over the last few weeks, stating that the young champion is too inexperienced to carry the championship banner and voicing his displeasure that Breakker won the NXT Title before him.

"A little over a month into his first title reign, Breakker has earned the championship by running roughshod over the likes of LA Knight and Roderick Strong while leading his team to a victory at NXT WarGames in just a short span after making his debut, eventually getting the best of Tommaso Ciampa in his championship rematch at New Year’s Evil.

"With over 20 years of experience under his belt, Escobar – along with the rest of La Familia -- offers a dangerous new threat to the NXT Champion, but is the former NXT Cruiserweight Champion underestimating the power of Breakker?"

The card for NXT Vengeance Day, taking place Tuesday, February 15 at the Performance Center in Orlando, is as follows:

* NXT Championship: Bron Breakker (c) vs. Santos Escobar

* Steel Cage: Pete Dunne vs. Tony D'Angelo

* NXT Women's Tag: Toxic Attraction (c) vs. Indi Hartwell and Persia Pirotta

* NXT North American: Carmelo Hayes (c) vs. Cameron Grimes
