Card subject to change. We’re less than a week away from NXT debuting on the WWE Network, though there are a lot of changes still to go. The first two weeks are going to be split between USA and the WWE Network, but that doesn’t mean the card won’t be strong from the get go. Some matches have already been announced, but one has changed and some have been added.
This week on NXT, some changes were announced for the first week of NXT on USA. General Manager William Regal added Candice LeRae to the women’s triple threat match for the #1 contendership to the Women’s Title. He also left open the door for the match becoming a five way with Rhea Ripley being added. Also added to the card are Matt Riddle vs. Killian Dain in a street fight and the Street Profits getting their rematch for the NXT Tag Team Titles against the Undisputed Era.
This is how you get ready. Check out Ripley vs. NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler:
Opinion: These are the kind of matches that you need to add. We have a match for a future title shot, a street fight over a grudge and a title rematch due to a story already established. The card is getting stacked in a hurry and you never know what else NXT might pull out of their bag of tricks. The show is looking good and if they continue with what works, everything could be fine.
