WWE NXT Preview, Jun 3: Drake Maverick’s Final Match?, Mia Yim vs Candice LeRae

The NXT TakeOver: In Your House “go-home” edition of WWE NXT takes place tonight on the USA Network.

Drake Maverick vs El Hijo Del Fantasma

The Interim Cruiserweight Title Tournament kicked off in April as linear Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin became unable to defend the gold due to travel restrictions imposed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now, the tournament has two clear victors from each group, namely, Drake Maverick and El Hijo Del Fantasma, who will now compete in the finals to become the new interim titleholder tonight.

The Wolf was released from WWE on April 15th but it was confirmed later on that he would still be competing in the tournament, to mark his final matches in the company.

Can Maverick write a fairytale ending (and save his job) by winning the Cruiserweight Title tonight? Or will Fantasma reign supreme in the high-flying, decisive face-off?

Mia Yim vs Candice LeRae

Candice LeRae has vowed to redefine the women’s division on the black and gold brand while keeping her eyes on the NXT Women’s Title that’s currently being held by Charlotte Flair

LeRae has been on an undefeated streak (singles action) since March and no woman has dared to step up to The Canadian Goddess. On the other hand, Mia Yim has had a mixed singles run so far and is yet to establish herself as a strong contender to the top prize in the women’s division.

Can Yim end LeRae’s undefeated run tonight? Or will the First Lady Of PWG claim yet another victory in her quest for domination?

“Prime Target” Special

WWE will air a “Prime Target” special featuring the main events of the NXT TakeOver: In Your House special scheduled for this Sunday, June 7th. There are currently five confirmed matches on the PPV card and a couple more could be made official on tonight’s show.
