USA Network pre-empting NXT for two weeks due to NHL


Just like what TNT did with Dynamite due to the NBA playoffs, USA Network will be doing the same with NXT over the next two weeks as it pre-empts the yellow brand for NHL.

NXT will be airing on Tuesday on September 1 and September 8 at 8PM ET, giving AEW a free ride for their pre and post-All Out pay-per-view shows on Wednesdays. SyFy will air an encore presentation on NXT on Wednesdays in its usual time slot during those two weeks.

This is the first time that USA Network has pre-empted a WWE show in several years. The September 1 episode will be headlined by a 60-minute Iron Man fatal-four way match to crown the new NXT champion.nxt
