- As noted, tonight's WWE NXT episode will see the debut of Lio Rush against the undefeated Aleister Black. In the video above, Rush talks to Christy St. Cloud and says fans can expect to see him do something he's been doing his entire life - making the impossible, possible. Rush says he's accomplished a lot of things that others have taken an entire lifetime to accomplish and he's here to show that he's not just the new guy, he's The Man of The Hour and it's his time.
Regarding Black and if he has a plan for the match, Rush says a lot of people have tried to make their mark against Black but very few have succeeded. Black will find out that Rush is unlike anyone he's ever seen in the ring and the outcome of their match will be pretty interesting.
- WWE stock was up 0.04% today, closing at $23.64 per share. Today's high was $23.88 and the low was $23.53.
