WWE's black-and-gold brand returns to their home turf of Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida this evening for this week's episode of NXT On USA.

WWE.com released the following preview for tonight's show:

WWE NXT preview, Feb. 12, 2020: How will Velveteen Dream’s return affect NXT ahead of TakeOver: Portland?

Last Wednesday, The Velveteen Dream made a shocking return to NXT, going after The Undisputed ERA, who put Dream on the shelf back in October. With NXT TakeOver: Portland just days away, how will The Dream’s return affect the black-and-gold brand? Find out tonight, live at 8/7 C on USA Network!

Will Lio Rush or Angel Garza emerge as the No. 1 contender to the NXT Cruiserweight Title?

Who will be the first challenger to new NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin?

We’ll find out tonight on NXT when bitter rivals and former champions Lio Rush and Angel Garza go head-to-head to determine the No. 1 contender.

The Irish Ace prevailed in a Fatal 4-Way Match at WWE Worlds Collide last month to dethrone Garza, though NXT’s resident lothario wasn’t pinned in that match, and he’s had no issue voicing his displeasure with that fact in recent weeks.

He unseated Rush to become champion late last year after a heated conflict that Garza made deeply personal, going as far as performing the signature tearing away of his pants right in front of Rush’s wife.

Given their history, no love will be lost when these competitors step in the ring. And with the added incentive of an opportunity to once again taste gold, anything could happen.

Will Rush prove to be The Man of the Hour, or will Garza once again get the better of his foe? Tune in to NXT on USA Network tonight at 8/7 C!

What will be the fallout of Velveteen Dream’s return?

Last Wednesday, The Velveteen Dream shocked The Undisputed ERA with his surprise return, cutting short their attack on Tommaso Ciampa.

His Purple Highness was out for payback after The Undisputed ERA put him on the shelf last October, also making things personal with the man who dethroned him as NXT North American Champion, Roderick Strong. Though Dream stood tall while wearing tights bearing the images of Strong’s wife and son, Strong and his cohorts made it clear that their issues were far from settled.

What will be the next chapter in this bitter rivalry?

Will Tommaso Ciampa be out for retribution ahead of TakeOver: Portland?

The Undisputed ERA will not only have to worry about Dream, but also about Tommaso Ciampa.

NXT Champion Adam Cole sent a message to his TakeOver: Portland challenger, spray-painting a yellow X across The Blackheart’s back, perhaps letting Ciampa know what Cole will be targeting during their championship showdown this Sunday. While Dream saved him from further damage, there’s no doubt that Ciampa will be out for payback. Will he get any before TakeOver: Portland?

Will Ripley or Belair get the upper hand?

Though thoughts of battling Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania still loom large, NXT Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley has a title match this Sunday in Portland against Bianca Belair.

Though she and Ripley briefly united to take out The Queen, The EST of NXT is quick to remind The Nightmare not to think too far ahead. With just days remaining before TakeOver: Portland, will either Superstar look to get the upper hand on their rival?

How will Lee and Dijakovic get ready for TakeOver?

Last Wednesday, Dominik Dijakovic earned the right to challenge Keith Lee for the NXT North American Championship at TakeOver: Portland.

The two rivals-turned-allies once again find themselves on opposite sides of the ring this Sunday. How will the two titans prepare for battle? Find out on NXT, live tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network!
