It was revealed earlier today that the July 27 episode of WWE NXT would not be airing on the USA Network. Instead, the episode will air on Syfy due to coverage of the Olympics on the USA Network as both Syfy and the USA Network are under the banner of NBC Universal.
Jacob Cohen, who attends many WWE shows, mentioned on Twitter that the July 27th episode of NXT will indeed be taped. The plan right now is for the Tuesday, July 20th episode to air live then the crew will come back the following night on Wednesday, July 21st to tape the July 27th episode.

For fans who attend the weekly TV event, they’ve been invited to participate in the audience for both upcoming shows.
WWE held its Great American Bash-themed episode of NXT last week and last night, Karrion Kross successfully defended the NXT Title against Johnny Gargano in the main event before choking out Samoa Joe to end the show.
The big match next week is NXT Women’s Champion Raquel Gonzalez defending her title against Xia Li.
