Meanwhile it was also confirmed that Pete Dunne would challenge Kushida on night one of the show.
The pair would also come face to face in NXT’s main event. Competing for the right to enter to the enter the Gauntlet Eliminator last at NXT TakeOver Stand and Deliver, the rivals clashed in a gruelling submission sequence during the middle of the match. Which only served to whet the appetite for what will follow in one week’s time.
LA Knight would eventually win the match after overcoming Dexter Lumis in the final stages.
It was also revealed that Taya Valkyrie, now known as Franky Monet will make her debut on the April 13th edition of the black and gold brand.
