Lio Rush will defend his NXT Cruiserweight Championship against Angel Garza tonight during WWE NXT on USA Network.

The advantage in the first-ever Women's WarGames Match will be hanging in the balance tonight, when Mia Yim and Io Shirai clash in a Ladder Match on WWE NXT.
Yim, representing Rhea Ripley's team, and Shirai, representing Shayna Baszler's, will both be looking to ensure their respective squad will have the advantage of sending a team member into the battle first inside the double cages of WarGames at NXT TakeOver on Nov. 23.
Who will climb the ladder to victory and give their team the upper hand in WarGames?
Last Wednesday, Pete Dunne got a measure of payback on Damian Priest with his submission victory, but quickly discovered that Killian Dain was out to end their "unfinished business." The Archer of Infamy also found himself in Dain's line of fire, as The Beast of Belfast crushed him against the ring stairs, putting Priest on the NXT injury report.
Is Dain satisfied, or will he be out to cause more carnage?
As the battle for brand supremacy at Survivor Series draws closer, the bad blood between NXT, Raw and SmackDown is getting worse by the day.

Will anyone from Team Red or Team Blue step into the NXT Arena to send a pre-Survivor Series message? Find out live tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network!
