The NXT live special that airs on Wednesday of next week was actually scheduled for March but they had to speed things up because they have booked the NXT talents for the Arnold Sports Expo in March. The TV was rewritten and angles were sped up by people at the top. The live special (on 2/11) will be headlined by Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens for the NXT title. Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch vs. Bayley for the women’s title will also be on that show. Also, Finn Balor vs. Adrian Neville is set for that show. They will be doing tapings on the following day (2/12) and then doing another taping on 2/18. That will cover their storylines through WrestleMania.
