Last week on WWE NXT, they made a splash with their first episode on Tuesday Nights. We saw a new champion crowned in KUSHIDA, and even the new RAW & Smackdown Women’s Champions making their returns to celebrate with new NXT Women’s Champion, Raquel Gonzalez. Tonight we have another big episode, as Kyle O’Reilly makes his return following that brutal unsanctioned match with Adam Cole, KUSHIDA with an open challenge, the debut of Sarray and more! Let’s waste no time, and break this card down.
Kyle O’Reilly Returns
The main event of NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver was a brutal affair between Kyle O’Reilly & Adam Cole. O’Reilly came out on top, but neither man left on their own power. Footage shown last week showed Cole & O’Reilly being wheeled into a local medical facility, where Cole was still talking trash to O’Reilly.
Tonight, O’Reilly is back on NXT and hopefully this gives us answers to a few questions. Is he done with Adam Cole? Will he be trying to win the NXT Championship? Is he even the same man who walked into that ring? All these questions and more will hopefully be addressed tonight on NXT.
Sarray Makes Her Long Awaited Debut
Following in the footsteps of names like Io Shirai, Kairi Sane, and Asuka, Sarray is the latest joshi star to make her way to NXT. She signed with WWE back in February of 2020, but due to the outbreak of COVID-19, her debut was delayed. Tonight, the waiting ends as she will finally be able to wrestle in NXT.
Her first opponent is promising rookie Zoey Stark, meaning that it’s not going to be a cake walk for Sarray. Add in Mercedes Martinez who has a current issue with Stark, and this is a very interesting situation that Sarray is walking into.
KUSHIDA Open Challenge
Last week, KUSHIDA shocked the world when he was able to beat the Undisputed NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar to take the title. This is KUSHIDA’s first taste of gold in WWE, but the former NJPW Junior Heavyweight ace is not waiting to make his first defense. Tonight, he has laid down a similar open challenge.
There are a few big options here, with Legado Del Fantasma obviously angry over the loss, meaning Joaquin Wilde, Raul Mendoza & Santos Escobar are all potential challengers. Ricochet has also been eyeing this news, so maybe the former NXT North American Champion could be making his return. Lot’s of great options here, and KUSHIDA will now remember what it’s actually like to be a champion.
Dexter Lumis Takes On LA Knight, Cameron Grime Celebrates Doge Day
Finally, we have two more announced segments. First up is Dexter Lumis picking up where he left off with LA Knight. One man doesn’t speak and won the heart of Indi Hartwell, while the other won’t shut up about how he’s the last of a dying breed. Should be a solid match.
We will also see Cameron Grimes celebrating Doge Day, after DogeCoin recently skyrocketed in price, giving him even more money. Lord only knows what he will be doing tonight, but whatever it is: it’ll probably be insane. What are you most excited for tonight on WWE NXT?
