As first reported by Dave Meltzer earlier this week, WWN’s Gabe Sapolsky and Sal Hamaoui were invited to NXT Takeover. They are backstage at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn. This likely has to do with the discussions about a possible partnership with EVOLVE.
As Triple H noted on the NXT conference call, they will tape a 90 minute episode of NXT prior to the live broadcast. The 90 minute episode, I would assume, should air within the next couple of weeks on the WWE Network.
Here is the card for tonight’s live broadcast:
NXT Championship Match – Ladder Match
Finn Balor (champion) vs. Kevin Owens
NXT Women’s Championship Match
Sasha Banks (champion) vs. Bayley
NXT Tag Team Championship Match
Blake and Murphy (champions) vs. The Vaudevillains
Jushin “Thunder” Liger vs. Tyler Breeze
Samoa Joe vs. Baron Corbin
Apollo Crews in-ring debut
