Zayn ambushed Owens this past Wednesday on NXT after Owens had secured a win over Alex Riley.

The two are set now to headline yet another NXT Takeover special which was also announced to be taking place live on Wednesday May 20th.

Owens has been unstoppable since then after defending his title against Finn Balor and defeating the returning Alex Riley twice.

The other match that is expected to happen is the highly anticipated match between Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks for the NXT Womens championship.

The two have a lot of history and Lynch defeated both Charlotte and Bayley to become the #1 contender on the last episode of NXT.
