Aleister Black faces the debuting Lio Rush
The undefeated Aleister Black looks to continue his winning ways tonight when he steps back into action against one of NXT’s most highly touted new signees, Lio Rush, exclusively on WWE Network.
The match marks the debut appearance of the 22-year-old Rush, a world-traveled high-flyer who made waves in September when it was revealed that he’d be joining the ranks of the WWE Performance Center.
For Black, meanwhile, tonight’s bout represents his first time back at Full Sail University since breaking his silence two weeks ago to declare his intention of going after the NXT Title. That address, however, was cut short by the provocative Velveteen Dream, who seemed intent on getting under the skin of the normally unshakable Dutch destroyer. Can Black put Velveteen Dream’s distraction behind him as he gets set to lock horns with “The Man of the Hour” Lio Rush tonight on NXT?
