Tonight’s WWE NXT episode on the USA Network will open up with Kyle O’Reilly in the ring.
WWE just announced that tonight’s opening segment will feature O’Reilly trying to get an explanation for Adam Cole’s attack at the end of “Takeover: Vengeance Day” on Sunday.
WWE has also announced that Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic winners Raquel Gonzalez and Dakota Kai will be on the show to celebrate their tournament, while MSK will also appear to celebrate their Men’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic win. There is still no word on when Kai and Gonzalez will challenge WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler, or when MSK will challenge NXT Tag Team Champions Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch.
The only new match announced for tonight’s show is tag team action with Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell vs. Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart.
The updated NXT preview for tonight also says NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano will be trying to locate Austin Theory. Theory has not been seen since Dexter Lumis hit him with an apparent chloroform attack backstage before Gargano’s win over Kushida at Takeover on Sunday.
While not officially announced for tonight’s show, NXT Champion Finn Balor teased on Twitter that he will be appearing. LA Knight, the former Eli Drake, also teased that he will be making his Wednesday night NXT debut tonight.
