As noted, the 2021 NXT Breakout Tournament will get underway in two weeks, during the NXT episode on Tuesday, July 13. This will be the first episode after the Great American Bash event.
Top WWE prospect Parker Boudreaux has teased that he could be making his in-ring debut during the tourney.
Soon after the tourney was announced on this week’s NXT, Boudreaux tweeted “Breakout” to hint at his debut. He deleted the tweet quickly but several fans grabbed a screengrab of his post.
WWE has yet to announce the participants for this year’s tournament. However, they have confirmed that there will be 8 participants again this year. You can click here for details on the Breakout qualifying matches taped on Tuesday before NXT at the WWE 205 Live tapings.
