Dolph Ziggler Match & More Set For WWE NXT

The former world champ in action

Dolph Ziggler will compete in his first NXT match in nine years next week.

It was announced during Tuesday's 'Vengeance Day' edition of NXT that Ziggler will go one-on-one with Tommaso Ciampa next week on February 22. 

Ziggler returned on NXT on February 8, inserting himself into the NXT Title picture before Ciampa interrupted and they brawled to the back. 

Their brawling then continued on Tuesday as the former World Heavyweight Champion looked to interfere in Bron Breakker's NXT Title defence against Santos Escobar, only to be cut off by Ciampa which resulted in The Blackheart and Ziggler once again fighting up the stage and out of the Performance Center. 

Also set for next week's show is LA Knight vs. Grayson Waller. The two talents have been feuding for several weeks and Knight left Waller lying on Tuesday's episode after he pointed out The Arrogant Aussie nullified the restraining order against Knight by attacking the former IMPACT World Champion first. 

Next week's NXT will also feature the debut of Nikkita Lyons and the start of the Women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.
