WWE have announced on their official website that Isaiah “Swerve” Scott will face off against Jake Atlas as part of tonight’s WWE NXT broadcast on the USA Network.

The announcement reads, “Isaiah “Swerve” Scott made a very good point on the most recent edition of WWE 205 Live: He is the only Superstar to defeat Santos Escobar since the leader of Legado del Fantasma debuted in WWE. Granted it was when Escobar was competing as El Hijo del Fantasma and before he recruited Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza to watch his back, but “Swerve” nevertheless made quite the impression in the seesaw battle and is targeting a title bout with the NXT Cruiserweight Champion. He’ll have a chance to strengthen his case tonight on NXT when he clashes with Jake Atlas, who came just one win away from competing for the NXT Cruiserweight Title during a recent eight-man tournament to determine a new champion, though he was defeated by Drake Maverick in a Triple Threat Match that also included Kushida. Now, Atlas is looking to reenter the title picture.”

Previously announced for the show:

– Timothy Thatcher vs. Finn Balor vs. Dexter Lumis in a WWE NXT North American Championship Qualifying Match

– Roderick Strong vs. Johnny Gargano.

– Mercedes Martinez (w/Robert Stone) vs. Shotzi Blackheart.
