With Samoa Joe out injured and surrendering the title on Sunday, Tommaso Ciampa, Pete Dunne, LA Knight and Kyle O’Reilly will now face each other for higher stakes tonight. Only Ciampa is a former NXT champion while Dunne was the WWE UK champion.
The live broadcast will also feature the wedding of Dexter Lumis and Indi Hartwell in what will be the first wedding segment on NXT television. Wrestling weddings never go according to plan and this one has the possibility of a train wreck as well!
