Three Matches Added To WWE NXT Heatwave

Including one match with major implications

Three matches have been added to WWE NXT's upcoming Heatwave special that will take place next week on August 16. 

In a match with major implications, Santos Escobar will go one-on-one with Tony D'Angelo in a Street Fight. If Escobar wins, Legado Del Fantasma will no longer be a part of Tony D'Angelo's family. If D'Angelo wins, though, Escobar will be banned from NXT while the remainder of Legado Del Fantasma will stay with Big Tony.  

Former friends Cora Jade and Roxanne Perez will also clash. They were previously NXT Women's Tag Team Champions but Cora Jade turned on her friend, costing her the NXT Women's Title, and Jade later threw her title belt in the bin. 

The North American Championship will also be on the line next week and Carmelo Hayes will defend the title against Giovanni Vinci. Sanga will show Valentina Feroz and Yulisa Leon how to find balance too. 

Check out the updated Heatwave lineup below:

  • Bron Breakker (c) vs. JD McDonagh - NXT Championship
  • Mandy Rose (c) vs. Zoey Stark - NXT Women's Championship 
  • Carmelo Hayes (c) vs. Giovanni Vinci - NXT North American Championship
  • Santos Escobar vs. Tony D'Angelo - Street Fight
  • Roxanne Perez vs. Cora Jade
  • Segment with Sanga, Valentina Feroz and Yulisa Leon
