WWE NXT: The Great American Bash will be a two week event to counter AEW Fyter Fest



As noted earlier, WWE is countering next week's AEW Fyter Fest by branding next week's episode of NXT as The Great American Bash, the pay-per-view created by the legendary Dusty Rhodes.

This appeared to be a late decision because there was no talk of The Great American Bash on social media earlier today and the announcement about the name coming back came late in the NXT broadcast.

WWE is now taking it a step further as they announced on that The Great American Bash will be a two-week event. The second week will counter night 2 of Fyter Fest.

Next week's Great American Bash episode of NXT will feature a Strap Match between Dexter Lumis and Roderick Strong.
