NXT is part of WWE and with the Wild Card Rule in play it seems like Superstars from WWE’s developmental brand are game for jumping to the main roster for a match too.

WWE has announced that WWE Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak will be facing NXT’s Isaiah “Swerve” Scott in a one time non-title match. This is a great representation of the battle of the brands and could be one of the top matches to see next week.

Swerve signed a WWE contract in April, but he lost the first match of the breakout tournament that NXT held recently. It goes without saying that this will be a big opportunity for the former Shane Strickland to work on a much bigger stage.

205 Live airs after SmackDown Live on the WWE Network. There is a need to draw a bigger audience for this show and putting on matches like this just might do the trick.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
