Join the show. NXT has been shaken up in a huge way over the last several months, leaving the place almost unrecognizable. So many wrestlers and names have been let go that there are all kinds of spots available but not so many stars available to take them. Therefore, we are going to be seeing some special guest stars on the first major NXT event of the new year.
A pair of guest stars have been announced for next week’s New Year’s Evil special, with both announcements taking place during this week’s edition of NXT. First up, Grayson Waller was insulting Monday Night Raw’s AJ Styles again, causing Styles himself to appear on the Titantron, saying that he would be around next week to meet Waller in person. Later in the show, MSK called out Imperium, which brought Walter and Riddle to the Titantron. Walter issued a challenge for a six man tag, which was confirmed later in the night.
It was a busy night. Check out how things went down this week:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that the show is going to need, as sometimes the extra star power can help. Walter, Riddle and Styles are all bigger names than anyone on NXT and they could help the show. Styles vs. Waller has been set up for a little over a week now and Walter adds impact to anything. Assuming they can deliver on what they are doing, we should be in for a nice upgrade next week.
What do you think of the additions? Who will be the biggest help? Let us know in the comments below.
