The following matches and events are advertised for tonight’s edition of the NXT television show.

Powell’s POV: NXT announced that Kushida was not medically cleared for his scheduled NXT Cruiserweight Championship defense against Roderick Strong. The match has been pulled and now Strong will have an open challenge in the opening segment. They also announced Grimes vs. Briggs with the story being that LA Knight offered $10,000 to Briggs to rough up Grimes. The winner of Hayes vs. Hudson will face Odyssey Jones in the tournament finals on a future show. Join John Moore for his live reviews of NXT as the show airs every Tuesday on USA Network at 7CT/8ET. John’s same night NXT audio reviews are available exclusively for Dot Net Members.
