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.
