WWE NXT returns once again this week, as tonight marks the latest episode of NXT On USA under the Coronavirus Pandemic Era, which has brought with it very unique circumstances to deal with in terms of WWE's weekly television schedule.
Tonight's WWE NXT show is heavily centered around the final showdown between bitter rivals Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano, as Triple H set up "One Final Beat" between the two as a way to promise an end to their storied saga on tonight's NXT On USA broadcast.
This week's NXT On USA show also features a six-woman ladder match to determine the number one contender to the new WWE NXT Women's Champion Charlotte Flair, as "The Queen" captured the gold by defeating former title-holder Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania 36 this past weekend.
Tonight's WWE NXT broadcast will be another taped show from the empty arena set up inside the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
WWE.com released the following preview for tonight's NXT TV show:
WWE NXT preview, April 8, 2020: Blackheart and Rebel Heart clash for One Final Beat
This is it. The deeply intense and personal rivalry between Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano will conclude tonight on USA Network. To allow them to settle the score, Triple H is providing the two best friends turned bitter rivals with an empty building, a ring and a referee. Two men will walk in, but only one can walk out victorious. Who will stand tall when The Blackheart and The Rebel Heart meet for One Final Beat? Find out tonight on NXT at 8/7 C on USA Network!
Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano set for one last match
Though Triple H felt that the final showdown between Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano deserved to take place on the biggest stage possible, the two best friends-turned-bitter rivals both agreed that all they needed to settle their score was a ring. So, Triple H is giving them what they want.
Tonight on NXT on USA Network, it will be Blackheart vs. Rebel Heart: One Final Beat. Triple H will give them an empty building with a ring inside and a referee. Two men will enter, and one will stand tall, determining who is the true heart and soul of NXT. But The Game made one thing clear: This is it. If they engage again following this battle, they will both be gone from NXT.
Who will be victorious in the final chapter of NXT’s most personal rivalry?
Ladder Match to determine No. 1 Contender to NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair
After winning the NXT Women's Championship at WrestleMania, Charlotte Flair will not have to wait long to find out who her top challenger will be. The No. 1 Contender to The Queen will be determined in a six-woman Ladder Match tonight during NXT on USA Network. The bout was originally scheduled to take place at NXT TakeOver: Tampa.
Chelsea Green was the first to qualify, defeating Shotzi Blackheart on the March 4 edition of NXT on USA Network. One week later, Mia Yim qualified with a win over Dakota Kai, and Tegan Nox punched her ticket by defeating Deonna Purrazzo. Io Shirai beat Aliyah to get into the match, and Candice LeRae earned a spot with a win over Kayden Carter on the March 25 edition of NXT.
Dakota Kai claimed the final place in the match by winning a Second Chance Gauntlet Match, pinning Blackheart in the final stage of the battle.
Who will climb to new heights and earn a chance to challenge for the NXT Women's Championship? Find out tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network!
