The NXT Cruiserweight Champion will be in non-title action when the black-and-gold brand returns tonight.
During WWE Monday Night Raw this week, it was announced that Escobar will be competing in a one-on-one bout with Tyler Breeze.
WWE.com released the following announcement for the Escobar-Breeze match:
Tyler Breeze takes on NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar in non-title action
Tyler Breeze found himself on the receiving end of Legado del Fantasma’s latest painful warning. But he’ll get a chance for payback this Wednesday night on NXT, as he faces NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar in a non-title bout.
Escobar, Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza have dished out ruthless beatdowns left and right in recent weeks, though the champion has carefully classified their actions as simply defending the honor of lucha libre culture.
Last week, they brutalized Fandango after snatching him in the parking lot, later using him to lure Breeze out before overwhelming him with the numbers advantage.
Will Breeze be in any shape to obtain retribution and potentially position himself favorably in the NXT Cruiserweight Title picture? Or will he run into the same fate as everyone else to oppose Legado del Fantasma thus far?
