WWE is broadcasting a new episode of its NXT program tonight. The show will be broadcast on WWE’s official digital platform, WWE Network.
– Otis Dozovic will challenge the NXT champion, Tommaso Ciampa. Dozovic during his interrogation about the attack on Aleister Black named The Blackheart as a possible suspect which caused them to have a face-off in the backstage area.
True to his opinion, Dozovic made it clear that Ciampa is vile enough to be guilty but before the words passed to the proceedings, Regal stopped them and ordered both superstars to solve their affairs in the ring . Now, Ciampa bets to teach his adversary a lesson of respect while Dozovic prepares for his most important match to date. In his first post-TakeOver match, will The Blackheart get the Heavy Machinery member to eat his words or will Dozovic give the surprise?
– Lars Sullivan is at war with NXT. Since he made his return to the yellow mark last month, Sullivan has left a path of destruction in his wake, leaving as victims EC3 and Raul Mendoza. The Freak is ready for action this week, what kind of punishment has Sullivan planned for the competitor who will have the unfortunate task of facing him?
-During the last months, Street Profits and The Mighty have had their particular “cold war”. Both teams have been interfering in each other’s matches and they have stolen several moves between them, they are the thorn in the side of the other.
Three weeks ago, Nick Miller and Shane Thorne donned masks and distracted Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins as they competed against The Forgotten Sons, causing them to lose the match. Interestingly, Street Profits performed a similar trick to The Mighty when they faced Heavy Machinery last month. This week they will face off in a team match that promises to be electrifying.
– Kairi Sane in action. It’s always great to see the NXT women’s champion, Kairi Sane in action and one can only imagine what challenge awaits her in the ring every Wednesday. The competition has been heating up in the women’s division of NXT but in addition to the group of superstars who hope to face her, The Pirate Princess also has to think about Shayna Baszler.
After her first match in NXT after winning the title in Takeover: Brooklyn, Sane was confronted by The Queen of Spades who plans to use her rematch clause . While it is not clear when Baszler formally plans to rematch, she already has the attention of the champion.
-It is hard to imagine that a month has passed since a mysterious attack on Aleister Black left the former NXT champion out of the action. After the attack, the general manager of NXT, William Regal, has been investigating to locate a suspect, but that has only fostered the ambiguity and does not stop repeating “who did it?”.
