The NXT title match between Adam Cole and Finn Balor set for tomorrow night’s NXT on USA Network will be presented commercial free and it will kick off the broadcast.
The news was announced by WWE yesterday as NXT and AEW go head-to-head with two big shows ahead of the Christmas holidays. The next time both shows will be live will be on January 8, 2020 as NXT will not have a live broadcast on Christmas and New Year’s Day.
AEW is countering the move by putting The Lucha Bros versus Kenny Omega and Hangman Page to open Dynamite tomorrow and it will also be commercial free.
This is the second time that the commercial-free concept will be used on NXT. NXT was also commercial free for the first hour when it started against AEW Dynamite back on October 2 but that did not affect the ratings as AEW went on to have a very comfortable victory.
