NXT will be moving to Tuesday nights soon but they are looking for at least one big ratings bump before they switch nights.
It was announced during this week’s broadcast that the NXT Championship will be defended next week. Finn Balor will defend against Adam Cole. On this week’s show, Balor defeated Roderick Strong and then he stood in the ring as Cole stared him down from the stage area.
Next week’s show will also feature Kayden Carter facing Xia Li and Carter is looking for revenge after Li injured Kacy Catanzaro on last week’s show.
Also, Io Shiri will defend the NXT Women’s Championship against Toni Storm.
Next week’s NXT will go up against the post-Revolution edition of AEW Dynamite. No matches have been announced yet for next week’s Dynamite but a big number is expected for that show because of the pay-per-view fallout and fans will want to know more about AEW’s next big signing that will be announced this Sunday.
