International Warfare

Drake Maverick has been to hell and back since the NXT Cruiserweight Tournament turned the former 205 Live GM from unemployed to NXT superstar. But his employment has come at a cost. He’s been a victim of war with Santos Escobar and his Legado Del Fantasma faction. But after an attempted third assault of Maverick from Escobar and his brotherhood with Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde, the elder statesmen of NXT in Fandango and Tyler Breeze had enough and disrupted the attempted bashing.

Now with the lights on bright, GM William Regal announced Breezango and Drake Maverick will battle with the Legado Del Fantasma collective in an epic 6-man tag team match. It is sure to set off Night 2 in a big way.

Can the NXT Cruiserweight champion and his cohorts defeat their trio counterparts? Can they establish a new dominance in NXT? Or can Breezango and Maverick shut down the warpath of the Fantasma group before it even gets started?

Between their run-ins on NXT TV backstage, on stage, in promos or involved in their significant others matches, Yim and LeRae have been destined to fight forever. But this may be the last chapter in their never-ending tale.

Will Candice LeRae show why the Garago family is one of the most feared competitors in a Street Fight setting? Or can Mia Yim silence the ‘head of the Women’s division’ by taking her out for good?
