Trying to keep momentum from last week’s ratings win, NXT will have the first night of The Great American Bash on USA Network presented with limited commercials featuring a stacked, five-match card.
Three of the five matches are all women and they will be also headlining the show with NXT Women’s champion Io Shirai vs Sasha Banks in a non-title match. The number one contender for that NXT Women’s title will also be decided in a fatal 4-way elimination match with Mia Yim, Tegan Nox, Dakota Kai, and Candice LaRae. The third women’s match is Rhea Ripley vs Aliyah and Robert Stone in a handicap match with the stipulation being that if Ripley loses, she joins the Robert Stone Brand. The two other matches are Oney Lorcan vs Timothy Thatcher and NXT’s first-ever strap match between Dexter Lumis and Roderick Strong.
Night two of The Great American Bash next week will be headlined by Adam Cole vs Keith Lee in a title for title match.
