WWE issued the following press release announcing that stars Angela Garza and Lio Rush will go one on one on tomorrow's episode of NXT on the USA network. The winner will receive an NXT cruiserweight title opportunity against current division champion Jordan Devlin. Check out the details below.
Will Lio Rush or Angel Garza emerge as the No. 1 contender to the NXT Cruiserweight Title? Who will be the first challenger to new NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin? We'll find out this Wednesday night on NXT when bitter rivals and former champions Lio Rush and Angel Garza go head-to-head to determine the No. 1 contender.
The Irish Ace prevailed in a Fatal 4-Way Match at WWE Worlds Collide last month to dethrone Garza, though NXT's resident lothario wasn't pinned in that match, and he's had no issue voicing his displeasure with that fact in recent weeks. He unseated Rush to become champion late last year after a heated conflict that Garza made deeply personal, going as far as performing the signature tearing away of his pants right in front of Rush's wife.
Given their history, no love will be lost when these competitors step in the ring. And with the added incentive of an opportunity to once again taste gold, anything could happen.
Will Rush prove to be The Man of the Hour, or will Garza once again get the better of his foe? Tune in to NXT on USA Network this Wednesday night at 8/7 C!
Devlin made his debut on last week's NXT defeating Tyler Breeze. Will the Irish Ace be in attendance for this number one contender's match? Stay tuned.
