Carmelo Hayes vs. Ilja Dragunov set for WWE NXT Great American Bash

Ilja Dragunov is headed to the Great American Bash.

Dragunov defeated Bron Breakker on Tuesday’s show to become the new number one contender to Carmelo Hayes’ NXT Championship. Dragunov won after connecting with a sliding headbutt to the back of Breakkers’ head. Dragunov and Hayes will meet at the Great American Bash on July 30 in Cedar Park, Texas.

Later in the show, Dragunov prevented Damian Priest from using the Money in the Bank briefcase to attack Hayes. However it backfired, as Finn Balor was able to pin Hayes in a tag match that also had Trick Williams.

Another match set for the Great American Bash is Mustafa Ali vs. Wes Lee for the North American title. Wes Lee will defend the title next week against Dominik Mysterio, who challenged him on Tuesday’s show.
