A match graphic for WWE NXT.

This week’s episode of WWE NXT switches gears to full Battleground preparations. A title match, qualification matches, as well as other chances for other Superstars to prove themselves are all on tap for this week’s show. Here is all you need to know ahead of the May 14 edition of NXT.

WWE NXT Full Match Card:

  • NXT Heritage Cup Championship Match: Charlie Dempsey (c) vs. Tony D’Angelo
  • NXT Women’s North American Championship Qualifying Match: Sol Ruca vs. Izzi Dame
  • NXT Women’s North American Championship Qualifying Match: Ivy Nile vs. Lash Legend

Charlie Dempsey Defends NXT Heritage Cup Championship Against Tony D’Angelo

Charlie Dempsey is set to defend the NXT Heritage Cup Championship against Tony D’Angelo. Although the No Quarter Catch Crew has the ‘Catch Clause’ to use, Dempsey will be the one to defend the gold against D’Angelo. This is fitting as Dempsey was the one to bring the gold to the team, and he gets to defend it against the most fierce challenger in their reign.

D’Angelo has been relentless in his pursuit of the title over the last few weeks, and he finally gets the chance to claim the title. This will be quite an intense match-up and, with the British Rounds Rules in place, only the best will prevail to leave the NXT Heritage Cup Champion.

NXT Women’s North American Championship Qualifying Matches Begin

On this week’s NXT, the NXT Women’s North American Championship qualifying matches begin. Two matches are set to take place this week. In the first, Sol Ruca continues to gain momentum with each passing match-up and she will go up against Izzi Dame. The second will see Diamond Mine‘s Ivy Nile come to NXT from Raw to claim her own shot at the title, and she goes up against the dominant Lash Legend.
With these four kicking off the qualifiers, they have the potential to set the pace and immediately prove their worth as they look to guarantee a spot for themselves in the Backlash ladder match.
