NXT is one of the biggest shows the WWE has right now, and it appears that they are getting more love than ever next week.

Dubbed ‘NXT Week,’ WWE plans on having content available from October 5-October 7 on NXT.

The week begins with another WWE 24 special, and concludes with NXT “TakeOver: Respect” which will for the first time be 2 hours and 30 minutes long.

The list below explains everything:

Monday, October 5th
WWE 24: NXT, one-hour special after RAW goes off the air at 11:06pm EST

“WWE 24 cameras follow the men and women of NXT in this revealing behind the curtain look at the NXT: TakeOver event from Brooklyn, NY.”

Tuesday, October 6th
NXT “Takeover: Respect” preview show at 6am EST, one-hour show hosted by Corey Graves

“Join Corey Graves for this in-depth preview of NXT TakeOver: Respect!”

Wednesday, October 7th
Table For 3 with Cesaro, Kevin Owens and Dean Ambrose at 4pm EST

“Join Dean Ambrose, Cesaro and Kevin Owens as they share ‘indy’ experiences, life on the road and their career goals and aspirations in WWE.”

Wednesday, October 7th
NXT “Takeover: Respect” thirty minute Pre-show at 7:30pm EST

Wednesday, October 7th
NXT “Takeover: Respect” live at 8pm EST, running 2 hours and 30 minutes for the first time ever

It was announced last week by Cody Rhodes that at the NXT “TakeOver: Respect” show, he and Goldust would be presenting a trophy to the winners of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.

Cody had a significant amount of input on how the trophy looks, and it is unknown if he will appear under the Stardust gimmick or as himself.

WWE would confirm this to be true today:

t will be an emotional night at NXT TakeOver: Respect, as two teams battle it out to pay tribute to their mentor in the final of the inaugural Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. The American Dream’s family will be well represented on Oct. 7, as his sons, Cody and Dustin Rhodes, will be on hand to present a trophy to the tournament winners.

The tournament was announced by NXT General Manager William Regal during the historic NXT Takeover: Brooklyn broadcast on WWE Network as a way for NXT to pay tribute to the late WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes. In addition to the impact Rhodes made inside the ring, he also left a tremendous mark on NXT, where he served a mentor to the entire roster, helping them find their way in the sports-entertainment world.

In the month since, 16 teams have battled it out in tribute to the late Hall of Famer, leaving it all on the line in hopes of making it to TakeOver: Respect. Now, only four teams remain. They will square off in the semifinals early in the night, with the winners of each match returning to the ring for the final bout. The semifinal matches are:

– NXT Champion Finn Bálor & Samoa Joe vs. Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder
– Jason Jordan & Chad Gable vs. Baron Corbin & Rhyno

Who will win two grueling matches in one night, pay tribute to their mentor and walk out of Orlando, Fla., as the winners of the first Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic? Find out at NXT TakeOver: Respect, live and only on WWE Network, Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

Editor’s Note:

I can’t wait for Respect. I expect Bayley VS Sasha Banks to steal the show. The Dusty Rhodes tournament is up there in matches I want to see. I hope they stick to an actual team for the winners. As tempting as it would be to have Finn and Joe emerge victorious as I would expect, I hope Jason Jordan and Chad Gable or Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder come out on top.
