NXT On USA Network (And WWE Network) Open Discussion Thread 9/18/19


History will be written this tonight when NXT expands to two hours and makes its live USA Network debut. The action kicks off at 8/7 C on USA Network and then continues on the award-winning WWE Network at 9/8 C. (via WWE.com)

Our five-point preview:

1. If you’re new to NXT, we do a regular Best and Worst of NXT column that you should check out. As it turns out, the show everyone’s been saying is really great for the past half a decade is great!

2. Velveteen Dream will defend his North American Championship against Roderick Strong, and we’ll see if the “prophecy” of The Undisputed Era is true. Is Adam Cole Azor Ahai? We’ll find out!

3. Killian Dain and Matt Riddle will have a street fight, and hopefully Riddle will be able to make it through this one without being turned into a beautiful stain on the floor.

4. Io Shirai, Bianca Belair, Candice LeRae, and Mia Yim square off in a number one contender match for the NXT Women’s Championship. If Io wins, Shayna should make some calls about open spots on the Raw and Smackdown roster.

5. Yes, in case you’re wondering, in a couple of weeks this’ll turn into an NXT/AEW combination open discussion thread. You’re getting in on the ground floor!

As always, +1 your favorite comments from tonight’s open thread and if we get enough comments, we’ll include 10 of the best in tomorrow’s Best and Worst of NXT report. Make sure you flip the comments by selecting “newest” in the drop down menu under discussion, and enjoy the show!
