LeRae and Johnny Gargano appeared on WWE's The Bump earlier today and announced the match. This will be Kai's warm-up as she prepares to face Tegan Nox in a Street Fight at Sunday's NXT "Takeover: Portland" event.
The only other match announced for tonight's go-home NXT episode is Angel Garza vs. Lio Rush with the winner becoming the new #1 contender to NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin for a future title shot.
Stay tuned for updates on tonight's NXT episode and remember to join us for live coverage at 8pm ET.
