WWE Announces Date For NXT Deadline

With "WWE NXT" No Mercy on the horizon, WWE's Tuesday night brand is already looking ahead to its next supercard, "NXT" Deadline.

WWE announced today that "NXT" Deadline will take place on December 9 at Bridgeport, Connecticut's Total Mortgage Arena, with tickets going on sale on October 6 at 10 a.m. ET. Advertised for the event are Bron Breakker, Roxanne Perez, Tiffany Stratton, and Ilja Dragunov, as well as "NXT" Champion Carmelo Hayes, and "NXT" Tag Team Champions Tony D'Angelo and Channing "Stacks" Lorenzo. As it stands, the champions will have to defend their titles at No Mercy, meaning it's possible that Dragunov will be "NXT" champion by the time Deadline arrives.


Notably absent from the list of advertised stars is "NXT" Women's Champion Becky Lynch and "NXT" North American Champion Dominik Mysterio. Lynch and Mysterio have been serious ratings draws for the Tuesday show since winning their respective titles. Lynch is set to defend her championship against Tiffany Stratton on Saturday, while Mysterio will defend his against Trick Williams.
