• New Champion To Be Crowned Tonight On NXT 2.0
WWE has announced the following for tonight’s debut episode of NXT 2.0 (a new era of NXT):
“The stakes have been raised, as the Fatal 4-Way Match between Kyle O’Reilly, Pete Dunne, Tommaso Ciampa and LA Knight will now determine the new NXT Champion.
The title was vacated Sunday night after Samoa Joe revealed he had suffered an injury that would force him to relinquish his title. After the shocking development, Mr. Regal made the decision to have the Fatal 4-Way clash crown the next NXT Champion.
Who will rise above the rest and raise the gold?”
