Jake Atlas vs. WWE NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar has been announced for tonight’s NXT episode on the USA Network.
The title will be on the line in the match. The bout was made after Legado del Fantasma helped Escobar defeat Atlas in a non-title match at Halloween Havoc on October 28, and then Atlas attacked the group, mainly Raul Mendoza, in the parking lot last Wednesday. As seen below, WWE just released video of Atlas attacking Joaquin Wilde in the parking lot before tonight’s show.
Stay tuned for live coverage of tonight’s NXT show at 8pm ET. Below is the updated line-up:
* NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar defends against Jake Atlas
