Tonight marks the closing of a chapter in WWE NXT history, with the final episode before the show expands to two hours, live on the USA Network starting Wednesday, September 18.
There’s an absolutely stacked lineup waiting for us this evening, headlined by the “Queen of Spades” Shayna Baszler taking on potentially her most challenging opponent to date – former NXT UK Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley.
WWE is also advertising that Johnny Gargano will return for the first time since losing to Adam Cole in the main event of NXT Takeover: Toronto. He will address the fans about his future with the promotion, as rumors have been flying about his potential return to the main roster.
Tonight we’ll also see two of the featured stars of the 2019 Breakout Tournament returning to action. In the first bout, the incredibly charismatic Angel Garza faces the “Bruiserweight” Pete Dunne, and in the second, tournament runner-up Cameron Grimes takes on Raul Mendoza.
