A look at what’s happening on NXT & NXT UK!
With a lot of the WWE Universe’s focus for the weekend on Sunday’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view (see the updated card here), there are also a lot of members of the WWE Universe with their sights set on NXT TakeOver: Phoenix.
Although tonight’s episode of WWE NXT was previously recorded at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida, 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 beginning at 8PM EST on the WWE Network:
- Will Ricochet take Johnny Gargano’s dare and show up at Full Sail?
- Aleister Black wants to get his hands on NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa before TakeOver
- What does The Velveteen Dream have in store for 2019?
- Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch take on Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner
- Kairi Sane & Io Shirai will join forces for tag team action
Before tonight’s episode of NXT comes the next edition of NXT UK at 3PM EST. Although today’s show was previously recorded at the Empress Ballroom in Blackpool, here’s a non-spoiler preview:
- Travis Banks finally gets his shot at redemption when he takes on ‘The Irish Ace’ Jordan Devlin
