NXT Champion Adam Cole's TakeOver: Portland challenger to be named
WWE COO Triple H announced during his post-Worlds Collide interview on Facebook Live that NXT Champion Adam Cole's TakeOver: Portland challenger will be revealed tonight during NXT on USA Network.
The Game said that NXT General Manager William Regal is working on something "pretty epic" for the title match at the Feb. 16 WWE Network special. Just what does he have in store for the leader of Undisputed ERA?
Matt Riddle & Pete Dunne to battle Grizzled Young Veterans in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Final
The 2020 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic field has been whittled down to the final two teams, but only one will be left standing after the tournament final tonight on NXT when Matt Riddle & Pete Dunne clash with Grizzled Young Veterans.
"The BroserWeights" were not a tag team prior to joining forces for the Dusty Classic, but Riddle & Dunne quickly proved themselves, first in a thriller where they defeated Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster, and then with a huge victory over Imperium in the semifinals.
Though Zack Gibson & James Drake were the inaugural NXT UK Tag Team Champions, many saw them as underdogs throughout the tournament. First, Grizzled Young Veterans had to go through the reunited duo of Kushida & Alex Shelley. They did. Then, if they wanted to get to the finals, they had to defeat NXT Tag Team Champions Undisputed ERA. They did. Gibson & Drake are supremely confident heading into the final, and they believe they are soon to prove the NXT Universe wrong and become the world's No. 1.
Who will leave Full Sail University with the Dusty Cup and an NXT Tag Team Championship Match at TakeOver: Portland?
Former best friends Tegan Nox and Dakota Kai to battle
Best friends turned bitter rivals Tegan Nox and Dakota Kai will clash for the first time tonight on WWE NXT.
The bad blood can be traced back to the first-ever Women's WarGames Match at NXT TakeOver this past November, when Kai turned her back on Nox, viciously attacking her friend by targeting Nox's injured knee.
Kai's torment of her former friend did not stop there. When Nox returned from the injuries Kai inflicted during a No. 1 Contender's Battle Royal on Jan. 15, Kai arrived to knock Nox out of the ring, costing her a chance to challenge for the NXT Championship. Nox got a measure of payback this past Saturday at Worlds Collide, when she ambushed Kai from behind, setting off a brawl that required a horde of referees and officials to keep the two separated
But tonight, there will be nothing stopping the two former best friends from taking out their frustrations on each other. Who will stand tall?
What's next for new NXT North American Champion Keith Lee?
Keith Lee has had quite the week.
On Wednesday, he dethroned Roderick Strong to become NXT North American Champion and end The Undisputed ERA's golden prophecy. Then, The Limitless One made his Royal Rumble Match debut on Sunday, standing toe-to-toe with WWE Champion Brock Lesnar. Though Lee was not victorious, he certainly made a major impression on The Beast and the WWE Universe.
What lies ahead for the new champion? Find out tonight on NXT, live at 8/7 C on USA Network!
