WWE have officially announced that on tonight’s edition of NXT, Legado del Fantasma will do battle the trio of Jake Atlas, Isiah ‘Swerve’ Scott and Ashante ‘Thee’ Adonis in a 6-Man Tag Team Match.
Lead by NXT Cruiserweight Champion, Santos Escobar, Legado del Fantasma have experienced problems with Isiah Scott since NXT TakeOver 31 when the champion retained his gold against ‘Swerve’ in an exhilarating outing.
Following that bout, the faction set upon Scott until Ashante Adonis hit the ring to save the talent and being a war that continued on last week’s NXT with the addition of Jake Atlas.
After Adonis fell to Atlas seven days ago, Legado del Fantasma attacked like vultures and forced a seemingly reluctant Jake Atlas to take up arms against the trio to defend his opponent. He wasn’t alone against the threesome for long as Isiah gatecrashed the party with steel chairs.
However, the reluctance shown by Atlas caused many to question where his loyalties lay and whether or not a heel turn is incoming.
Santos Escobar has been the talk of the town lately when NXT UK Superstar Jordan Devlin called him out over the legitimacy of his NXT Cruiserweight Championship reign. As we wait for the next chapter in that story, we can all salivate at the possibilities on offer.
Also on tonight’s NXT Halloween Havoc go-home show, Kushida, Tommaso Ciampa and The Velveteen Dream will battle in a Triple Threat Match, Breezango will defend the NXT Tag Team Championships against The Undisputed Era and we are sure to hear from the Gargano’s, Damian Priest and Io Shirai ahead of their championship outings on next week’s spooky spectacular.
Inside the Ropes will have live coverage of NXT tonight.
