4/17 WWE NXT Preview: Kairi Sane’s Final Voyage, Johnny Champion Arrives, Velveteen Dream Defends His Title & More


Tonight’s episode of WWE NXT is absolutely stacked with big matches and highly anticipated segments, featuring the first round of content from the most recent set of television tapings at Full Sail University.

The show will be headlined by Shayna Baszler defending the NXT Women’s Championship against arguably her greatest rival for the very last time, as the “Pirate Princess” Kairi Sane will never again have the opportunity to challenge for the title if she loses tonight’s match, under any circumstances.

That won’t be the only title on the line this evening, as The Velveteen Dream will defend the NXT North American Championship in an interesting match-up against former 205 Live Superstar and former Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy, who recently moved to the Monday Night Raw brand in the 2019 WWE Superstar Shake-Up.
