-- Below is the official NXT preview released by wwe.com:
Io Shirai to defend NXT Women’s Championship against Rhea Ripley
Rhea Ripley has been on the road to redemption since her WrestleMania stumble. Can she complete her journey and defeat Io Shirai to regain the NXT Women’s Championship?
While The Nightmare suffered one of her biggest setbacks in losing the title to Charlotte Flair earlier this year, Shirai has launched herself to superstardom since overcoming Flair and Ripley in a Triple Threat Match at NXT TakeOver: In Your House.
As champion, The Genius of the Sky has also conquered a formidable list of challengers, including Candice LeRae, Tegan Nox and Dakota Kai, in addition to a non-title victory over Sasha Banks.
Meanwhile, Ripley has been grinding her way back up the mountain to earn this opportunity, most notably vanquishing fellow powerhouses Mercedes Martinez and Raquel González.
Will Ripley become a two-time NXT Women’s Champion, or simply become Shirai’s latest conquest?
NXT Champion Finn Bálor set to return
What’s next for The Prince and the NXT Championship? Find out this week on NXT!
Finn Bálor will address the future of the NXT Title in his first appearance at the Capitol Wrestling Center since defeating Kyle O’Reilly at NXT TakeOver 31. Bálor had not been cleared for action after suffering a broken jaw and oral lacerations in the brutal, yet successful title defense against O’Reilly.
What will Bálor have to say? Tune in to NXT Wednesday night at 8/7 C on USA Network!
Johnny Gargano looks to regain NXT North American Title from Leon Ruff
Leon Ruff shocked the world and Johnny Gargano last week. Can he catch lightning in a bottle again and hold on to the NXT North American Championship?
Ruff will defend his newly won title against Gargano tomorrow night on NXT.
Despite admittedly rigging his own “Wheel of Challengers” to determine his opponent, Johnny Wrestling was unable to end his championship curse as Ruff pulled off one of the biggest upsets in the history of the black-and-gold brand.
After pleading his case, Gargano gets his chance to regain the championship gold. Will he become a three-time champion, or does Ruff simply have Gargano’s number?
Ember Moon & Toni Storm team up to face Dakota Kai & Raquel González
Two recent NXT returnees in Toni Storm & Ember Moon will put their skills to the test against the vicious tandem of Dakota Kai & Raquel González tonight.
Storm took on Candice LeRae on the black-and-gold brand last week, but lost in controversial fashion thanks to LeRae’s trickery. In her return to the ring, Moon teamed with Rhea Ripley to take down Kai & González, but Kai got the better of Moon in their one-on-one matchup two weeks ago.
Will Storm & Moon combine for instant in-ring chemistry? Or will it be Kai & González’s time to deliver punishment?
Don’t miss the showdown tonight at 8/7 C on the USA Network.
Cameron Grimes and Dexter Lumis set for Blindfold Match showdown
Cameron Grimes has been outrunning the horrors of Dexter Lumis for some time, but he delivered a new nightmare for NXT’s Tortured Artist last week.
Grimes will battle Lumis tonight on NXT in a Blindfold Match after The Technical Savage orchestrated a surprise attack on his rival last week. With Lumis’ head covered in a burlap sack, Grimes took aim at his recent tormenter with repeated strikes. Lumis broke down Grimes with a terrifying victory in their Haunted House of Terror Match at NXT Halloween Havoc.
What will happen when both Grimes and Lumis are stripped of their sense of sight?
Tune in to NXT tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network to see the Blindfold Match.
