WWE NXT Live Results: NXT Updates & Highlights (1st June 2021)
This week’s episode of WWE NXT will do a lot to build up to their next TakeOver event. A title opportunity is on the line for three top superstars, while the tag team titles will also be defended this week. There’s a lot that’s going on with NXT yet again. Let’s dive right into it!
Cameron Grimes and LA Knight
Last week, Cameron Grimes finally faced off with Ted DiBiase Sr. However, before things could get sorted out between the two, Grimes was interrupted by LA Knight.
Knight took out Grimes and it seems that’s the next feud for the former IMPACT Wrestling star.
NXT Tag Team Championship Match: MSK (c) vs. Legado del Fantasma
MSK first won the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic and then bagged the Tag Team Championships to become the top team of NXT soon after debuting in WWE. But not everyone has taken to their success very kindly.
Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza of Legado del Fantasma have been vocal about wanting to face MSK for some time. They got the chance after defeating Timothy Thatcher and Tommaso Ciampa after The Grizzled Young Veterans ran interference.
Now, Legado del Fantasma will stop at nothing until they win the tag team titles. Will MSK be able to retain their titles?
Kyle O’Reilly vs. Johnny Gargano vs. Pete Dunne for the NXT Championship opportunity
Karrion Kross defeated Finn Balor at NXT last week. Now, he needs a new challenger for his title defense at NXT TakeOver: In Your House. Three superstars from the top echelon of NXT – Johnny Gargano, Pete Dunne, and Kyle O’Reilly will face each other in a Triple Threat Match, where the winner will face Kross for the NXT Championship at TakeOver.
Gargano’s North American title reign recently ended and he needs something new. Meanwhile, O’Reilly has proven that he’s more than ready to be a main event star. Finally, Pete Dunne too has been after the NXT Championship for a while now.
Who will challenge Karrion Kross at NXT TakeOver: In Your House?
