As noted earlier, Triple H said that there are some big names scheduled for tonight’s episode of NXT as WWE hypes this weekend’s Survivor Series pay-per-view. WWE also hopes that the extra star power on tonight’s show will help them beat AEW Dynamite.
WWE’s claim has been that the ratings war with AEW is not a marathon and not a sprint. The star power from Raw and SmackDown being brought in for tonight’s NXT clearly shows that they want a ratings win now and not later.
The Wrestling Observer’s Bryan Alvarez is reporting that Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Shorty G, Mustafa Ali, King Corbin, Motez Ford, Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville are all backstage at Full Sail University and are likely to appear tonight.
We will have all of the news from tonight’s NXT and AEW Dynamite beginning at 8 pm eastern.
