Several Raw and Smackdown Superstars crashed NXT last night on USA Network following Triple H’s open door invitation.
And as you expect, there was mayhem following several brawls throughout the night which involved the men and women of Raw and Smackdown going against NXT…and each other.
Becky Lynch, The Revival, Ricochet, Cesaro, Shinsuke Nakamura, Carmella, Dana Brooke, Sonya Deville, Mandy Rose, Sarah Logan, Kairi Sane, Natalya, Nikki Cross, The Viking Raiders, Zack Ryder, Street Profits, Drew McIntyre, and Seth Rollins all showed up during the show, with Lynch kicking off the broadcast and Rollins closing it with an attack on Adam Cole and then a brawl with Tommaso Ciampa.
WWE pushed last night’s NXT in hopes of overtaking AEW in the viewership numbers, at least for this week, while promoting both NXT Takeover: WarGames and the Survivor Series.
If that tactic paid off remains to be seen.
