WWE NXT Preview (3/14): Johnny Gargano To Appear, Two Championship Matches, More

Johnny Gargano will appear on “WWE NXT” tonight following his surprise return to the brand seven nights ago Danny Wolstanholme reports for Wrestling INC.


The former “NXT” Champion made his presence felt during “The Grayson Waller Effect” with guest Shawn Michaels and got into a brawl with the host.


As a result, the two rivals will collide at Stand & Deliver during WrestleMania 39 weekend in Los Angeles, California.


Gargano pays a visit to the show this evening after he and Dexter Lumis suffered a loss to The Judgment Day’s Damian Priest and Dominik Mysterio in tag team action last night on “WWE Raw.”


Meanwhile, Wes Lee will put the “NXT” North American Championship on the line after issuing another open challenge.


Interestingly, Cedric Alexander indicated that he would like to answer the call in a post on social media after Axiom put his name forward in a backstage segment last week.


Additionally, Gallus’ Wolfgang and Mark Coffey will defend the “NXT” Tag Team Championship against Elton Prince and Kit Wilson of Pretty Deadly.


The former champions believe the titles were stolen from them last December and that Gallus has prevented them from winning the gold back since.


Elsewhere, Apollo Crews and Dabba-Kato will settle their differences in the ring. Kato turned on Crews following his two-out-of-three falls match with Carmelo Hayes at Vengeance Day last month, and now the former WWE Intercontinental Champion is out for revenge.


Finally, an update will likely be provided on the condition of reigning “NXT” Women’s Champion Roxanne Perez after she was taken to a local medical facility following her successful title defense against Meiko Satomura last Tuesday night.

It appears that a new “WWE NXT” Women’s Champion will be crowned at the brand’s Stand & Deliver event, Kellie Haulotte writes for Wrestling INC.


WWE Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative Shawn Michaels took to Twitter and announced that there will be a series of qualifying matches starting on tonight’s episode to determine who will be competing at Stand & Deliver in a ladder match for the “NXT” Women’s Championship.


“As of Friday Morning Roxanne Perez was discharged from the hospital,” Michaels wrote.


“However, after numerous tests, Roxanne’s health is still in question. With Stand and Deliver in less than three weeks, I have the obligation to announce we possibly have to crown a New NXT Women’s Champion.


“Starting tonight there will be a series of qualifying matches with the winners advancing to Stand and Deliver to compete to become the NXT Women’s Champion in a Ladder Match.”


The end of the March 7 episode of “NXT” saw Perez suddenly “collapse” after she retained her title against Meiko Satomura. Perez was stretchered out of the arena to an ambulance backstage.



This happened after several vignettes showed her “exhaustive workouts” ahead of the big match with the former “NXT UK” Women’s Champion.


Perez has been the “NXT” Women’s Champion since defeating former WWE Superstar Mandy Rose on the December 13 edition of “NXT.”


Stand & Deliver is set for Saturday, April 1 at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California. It will be on the same day as night one of WrestleMania 39 and will be starting at 1 PM ET.


Other matches announced include Bron Breakker defending his “NXT” Championship against Carmelo Hayes and Grayson Waller will be facing Johnny Gargano.
