Spoilers for the TWO major NXT announcements tonight
NXT has hyped up two major announcements for tonight’s show.
General manager and British wrestling legend William Regal will make the announcements on Wednesday and speculation has run wild as to what they could be.
The introduction of some Women’s Tag Team titles has been one hot rumour. Triple H has previously told the media that with all the women on the NXT roster at this point, he believes they could add another title to the women’s division.
It would make storyline sense too after Dakota Kai felt robbed as she and Raquel Gonzalez came up short against Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler last week.
The second announcement comes at the same time as many are speculating that NXT will make a move to Tuesday nights following WrestleMania.
The Yellow Brand saw some tangible success when they operated on different nights to AEW last year in terms of total viewership and the key 18-49 demographic.
While NXT may indeed make the move post-WrestleMania 37, Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated says that is not the news they will be breaking tonight.
Barrasso clarifies tonight’s NXT announcements will be for women’s tag team titles and a two night NXT TakeOver event. Night one will be shown on the USA Network and night two will air exclusively on Peacock.
WWE sealed a $1 billion deal with Peacock back in January that will see US customers of their WWE Network now have to sign up to Peacock.
International subscribers can still use the Network as usual and its expected they will watch the TakeOvers as usual, too.
