It looks like next week’s episode of WWE NXT will be a two-hour long show.
The WWE Network has the first episode of NXT listed as a two-hour episode on the listing for the show. The show is scheduled to start off at it’s normal 8PM ET time slot but will conclude at 10PM instead of 9PM.
The synopsis for the show hypes the Matt Riddle and Kassius Ohno. However, WWE has also announced that NXT’s Year-End Award Nominees will be announced:
“At the end of each year, the NXT Universe rises to the call and casts their votes to decide the top movers, shakers, and influencers in sports-entertainment’s hottest brand as part of NXT’s annual Year-End Awards. The 2018 Year-End Awards come into focus this Wednesday on WWE NXT as nominees will be revealed! Don’t miss out when a special two-hour edition of NXT streams at 8/7 C on Wednesday, Jan. 2, only on the award-winning WWE Network.”
It remains to be seen if WWE extends the shows to two-hours moving forward. If we hear anything, we will keep you updated.
