WWE NXT Preview: Full Details
Tommaso Ciampa returns to action against Angel Garza
Former NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa makes his long-awaited return to the ring tonight on NXT, when The Blackheart goes one-on-one with Angel Garza.
Garza interrupted a backstage interview with Ciampa, leading the former NXT Champion to deck the brash upstart. Will Ciampa show that he’s ready to reclaim the NXT Championship, or will Garza ruin his first match since undergoing neck surgery?
Pete Dunne looks for payback against Damian Priest
Pete Dunne stood tall against Danny Burch during NXT’s live two-hour premiere on NXT, but soon found out that he was in the crosshairs of The Archer of Infamy. Damian Priest leveled The Bruiserweight, but tonight, Dunne will be out for payback when the two clash inside the ring.
Priest said he attacked Dunne for the attention, and he will certainly get that next week. Will Dune get retribution, or will The Archer of Infamy hit the bullseye?
Keith Lee and Dominik Dijakovic square off in a rubber match
The epic rivalry between Keith Lee and Dominik Dijakovic will be settled when they square off in a rubber match tonight on WWE NXT.
Each Superstar has one win in this struggle that has redefined what big men can do inside the ring. They wowed the NXT Universe with stunning displays of aerial attacks in their last battle, on the Sept. 25 edition of NXT, which saw Lee emerge victorious to even the series at one apiece.
Who will walk away with giant bragging rights in this king-sized battle? Find out tonight!
Tegan Nox returns to NXT
