WWE’s next TakeOver event is taking place on October 4th, and they added another title match to the show.

The company announced that Isaiah “Swerve” Scott will get an NXT Cruiserweight Title opportunity at NXT TakeOver: 31.

This might be the final title match added to the event depending on Tyler Breeze’s status. Prince Pretty was absent from last week’s episode of NXT.

There were a lot of issues booking the card for NXT TakeOver: 31. The COVID-19 pandemic NXT caused some starts to be unavailable.

They have also advertised that a former NXT Champion will return to NXT during NXT TakeOver: 31. At this point it is widely believed to be Bo Dallas returning. You can check out the updated card (so far) below.

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.
