Adam Cole vs. Matt Riddle for the NXT Championship has been added to next week’s NXT. Johnny Gargano will also face Shane Thorne.
Next week’s episode of NXT on USA Network will have “limited commercial interruption.”
The announcement was made during the USA Network hour of this week’s NXT. Next Wednesday will be the first time that NXT has aired live on USA for the full two hours.
Last week’s NXT and tonight’s show were split across USA Network and WWE Network due to the final two episodes of “Suits” airing at 9 p.m. Eastern time on USA.
Next week will also be the first time that NXT and AEW go head-to-head. AEW Dynamite debuts on TNT next Wednesday, with both shows airing from 8-10 p.m. Eastern.
Two title matches have been announced for next week’s NXT thus far. Candice LeRae will challenge for Shayna Baszler’s NXT Women’s Championship, and The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford) will get their rematch for Kyle O’Reilly & Roderick Strong’s NXT Tag Team titles.
LeRae was set up as Baszler’s next challenger by defeating Mia Yim, Bianca Belair, and Io Shirai in a fatal four-way number one contender’s match last week. O’Reilly & Fish defeated The Street Profits last month to win the NXT Tag Team titles.
