Dragon Lee vs Mustafa Ali with Dominik as Special Guest Referee
Dragon Lee will fight Mustafa Ali in order to become the #1 contender for the NXT North American Title. The champion Dominik Mysterio will serve as the special guest referee for this match. Dom stated on social media that Ali should be the one to face him for the title at NXT No Mercy. Will Dom do him any favor as the enforcer?
Von Wagner vs Bron Breakker
Von Wagner and Bron Breakker have been involved in a feud for a while. Breaker already defeated Wagner once at the August 8 episode of NXT. However, he wasn’t finished with Wagner as he hit him with a brutal spear two weeks back. As a result, Wagner responded in a promo and challenged Breakker to a match. Will Wagner be able to defeat Breakker in the rematch?
Ilja Dragunov vs Oro Mensah
Oro Mensah and Meta-Four interrupted Ilja Dragunov during his promo on the August 29 episode of NXT. Now, the Mad Dragon is looking forward to beating some respect into Mensah. As a result, a singles match between them is scheduled for this week.
