Triple H noted that he was still in India for WWE PR reasons so he could not be at the NXT TV tapings on Thursday night. However, two legends stepped in. Road Dogg, who is in charge of creative on Smackdown Live, and WWE Hall Of Famer Shawn Michaels filled in for him this week. Michaels already works at the Performance Center as a trainer so it’s not surprising to see him there.
There was a lot of news coming out of the tapings. We won’t spoil it here but we now know who will challenge for the NXT Championship at NXT Takeover: Houston. Also, now we know all four competitors that will compete for the NXT Women’s Championship at Takeover: Houston. Oh, and did I mention that the 2-ring War Games match made famous by Dusty Rhodes in NWA/WCW is coming back?
