3 matches are announced for WWE NXT September 5, 2023 episode including NXT Women’s Championship match between Tiffany Stratton and Kiana James.
Bron Breakker hit Von Wagner with a spear last week. Von Wagner has now responded with a promo to challenge him for a No Disqualification match. Breakker defeated Wagner once before on August 8 NXT episode.
Kiana James won a fatal 4-way match in the main event of August 29 NXT episode to become the #1 contender for NXT Women’s Championship. James pinned Gigi Dolin after hitting Recoil. Roxanne Perez and Blair Davenport were the other participants in the match. James will challenge for the title next week. She also had a face-off with Tiffany Starton to close this week’s NXT.
Dominik Mysterio will be the special guest referee as Dragon Lee and Mustafa Ali will battle to become the number 1 contender for his NXT North American Championship. Lee pinned Dominik last week in a tag team match and is in line to get a title shot. However, Mustafa Ali intervened his interview this week to tell him that he failed to beat Dominik once before, so he should make way for Ali for the next title shot.
Dominik and Rhea Ripley posted a promo on Instagram saying that Ali and Lee should fight for the title shot while Dominik himself will be the special guest referee.
Additionally, Global Heritage Invitational Tournament will continue, but the matches are not announced yet. Tyler Bate has also called out Dabba Kato. Bate vs Kato match was announced for this week, but was nixed without any explanation.
