Although tonight’s episode of WWE NXT was previously recorded at Full Sail University, we at The Chairshot realize not everyone likes a spoiler. With that in mind, here’s a non-spoiler preview of what’s happening on NXT, which airs at 8PM EST on the WWE Network:
- The Undisputed Era gets their rematch for the NXT Tag Team Titles against Moustache Mountain
- NXT Champion Aleister Black will address his upcoming defense against Tommaso Ciampa
- Danny Burch goes one-on-one against NXT North American Champion Adam Cole
- The talking is over as Kairi Sane is in action against Vanessa Borne
Understand something. I’m not overlooking/underestimating atWWEAleister.
He might very well be the second best talent in all of NXT.
But never in the history of sports entertainment has the gap between Number 1 and Number 2 been so big.

WWE News: WWE Network To Air Starrcade Special Next Sunday
Next weekend’s WWE Starrcade event will air on the WWE Network…sort of.
While the WWE Universe is focused on tonight’s NXT TakeOver: War Games II and tomorrow night’s Survivor Series, next Saturday the company will present its second Starrcade event from Cincinnati, Ohio.
After reviving the old NWA/WCW pay-per-view namesake for a special Live Event last year, WWE decided to move this year’s show outside of North Carolina. Yesterday, we noted how some changes were made to the card as the previously scheduled Steel Cage Match between Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair has been removed (see the full lineup here). At this time, Charlotte is still advertised to appear, however it’s now not known exactly in what capacity she will be used.
Additionally, many fans had hoped that this year’s Starrcade would be available on the WWE Network after missing out on last year’s and it looks like they will be getting their wish in some fashion. PWInsider was the first to report that the WWE Network schedule is listing Starrcade to air as a one-hour special next Sunday, the night after the event, at 8PM EST. Currently, there are no details on which matches from the event will air.
Joey Ryan Gives Details On His Injury, Will Be Undergoing Surgery
Joey Ryan has updated everybody on his injury status!
As we noted in our spoiler coverage, Joey Ryan competed alongside Swoggle at Major League Wrestling’s Fightland television tapings last week in Chicago, however could not use his left arm and revealed after the match that he was injured (see the spoiler results here).
While Joey had yet to see a doctor and learn the full extent of his injury, the belief was he had suffered a torn pec, an injury we also just saw Triple H suffer at WWE Crown Jewel. Ryan has since had an MRI and revealed the full results today via Instagram:
“The MRI revealed that I have an acute tear of the left pectoral major, including a high-grade tear of the clavicular head at the myotendinous junction and a high-grade intratendinous tear of the sternal head with retraction and hemorrhage into the muscle belly. Disorganized fibers of the muscle-tender tear identified within the deltiopectoral groove.
The doctor is recommending surgery and I’m to call the surgeon on Monday or Tuesday to set up an appointment to see them.
A timetable on recovery will be determined by the surgeon.”
While of course nothing concrete can be said until surgery, the recovery time for a torn pec can be as little as five months on the low end, but up to nine months on the higher end of the spectrum should no complications arise.
