Jordan Devlin to appear on WWE NXT next week

A match to determine an Undisputed NXT Cruiserweight Champion looks to be on the horizon.

On NXT tonight, a video aired with Jordan Devlin announcing that he’s coming to NXT next Wednesday. WWE lists Devlin and Santos Escobar as both being NXT Cruiserweight Champions.

Devlin mentioned in tonight’s video that April’s two-night NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver event is coming soon. Devlin said it would be a shame if the biggest TakeOver in history didn’t have the real NXT Cruiserweight Champion on the card. Devlin said his travel ban got lifted today and he’s coming to NXT next week.

Escobar spoke to NXT general manager William Regal later on tonight’s show and asked who the hell Devlin thinks he is. Escobar said everyone knows Escobar is the real NXT Cruiserweight Champion.

Devlin won the NXT Cruiserweight Championship in a fatal four-way match at Worlds Collide in January 2020. But with Devlin unable to travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a tournament was held to crown an interim champion. The interim label was later dropped from the tournament. Escobar defeated Drake Maverick in the tournament finals.

Devlin has defended his version of the NXT Cruiserweight Championship three times since NXT UK returned with new episodes last September.
