NXT will hold its first themed episode of the year with New Year’s Evil, a packed card with limited commercials and a main event with “non-stop” action, suggesting picture-in-picture commercials.
The highly-anticipated night is headlined by an NXT title match between Finn Balor and Kyle O’Reilly, a rematch from their hard-hitting Takeover 31 match where both men ended up injured.
In addition, Rhea Ripley will be taking on Raquel Gonazlez in a last woman standing match, Damien Priest takes on Karrion Kross in the opening match, and Gran Metalik will challenge Santos Escobar for the NXT Cruiserweight title.
Plus, after weeks of brutal punishment, Xia Li and Boa are set to make their NXT re-introduction.
Tommaso Ciampa was set to go one-on-one against Timothy Thatcher in the Fight Pit but it looks like the match is off due to an injury.
