WWE NXT: July 20, 2016
A New Era begins this Wednesday as three huge matchups take place on NXT’s “Fight Night.” NXT Champion Samoa Joe vs. Rhyno, American Alpha vs. The Authors of Pain and the highly anticipated rematch between Bayley and Nia Jax all go down on the first post-WWE Draft edition of NXT.
Bayley’s journey for redemption runs into Nia Jax Bayley and Nia Jax are no strangers to one another, having battled multiple times before. Unfortunately for Bayley, their last encounter left the former NXT Women’s Champion out of action for multiple weeks.
However, Bayley has proven time and time again to have an unbreakable will.
This was on display last week when she refused to back down to the intimidating Nia, standing face-to-face with her towering rival and challenging her to another clash. Can Bayley overcome her severe size and strength disadvantage to claim victory over her powerful foe?
Or, will Bayley’s huge heart send her straight into another painful encounter with the dominating Jax?
Rhyno looks to Gore his way through NXT Champion Samoa Joe Last week, Samoa Joe made it clear that he is the “new face of NXT,” daring anyone to go through him in order to make it to the top of NXT’s food chain.
Rhyno defiantly challenged the titleholder to a fight right then and there, only to have Joe walk away. The Man Beast will get his fight this Wednesday, though, as he battles Joe in a huge one-on-one matchup.
Will Rhyno Gore his way through Joe to the top of NXT?
Or, will Joe make an emphatic statement at the expense of the ECW alum? Find out this Wednesday at 8/7 C as NXT hosts its very own “Fight Night.”
The Authors of Pain prepare to write their next chapter Since making their emphatic arrival at NXT TakeOver: The End … of the Beginning, The Authors of Pain have left a path of destruction in their wake.
American Alpha know this all too well after being made an example of by the towering brutes at the memorable NXT event.
Despite being handed an epic beatdown, Jason Jordon & Chad Gable are one of the most talented tag teams to ever step foot inside an NXT ring. The incredibly athletic and determined duo is no stranger to overcoming obstacles, and they will have to do just that when they clash with WWE Hall of Famer Paul Ellering’s massive monsters.
Can American Alpha conquer their fearsome foes? Or will they face a painful ending at the hands of The Authors of Pain?
