WWE might be giving their NXT Superstars a break for the Holidays, but NXT will still air an original episode on the USA Network for the next two weeks.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that they have already taped a couple of matches that will air on television. Some are slated to be recorded this week.

Bianca Belair faced Shotzi Blackheart during a taped match on Wednesday this week. That match is set to air on Christmas Day. This will mark Shotzi Blackheart’s NXT television debut.

Austin Theory is getting a NXT North American Title opportunity in his NXT television debut. He took on Roderick Strong before the NXT taping this week and they recorded that match for Christmas.

Matches planned for the Christmas Day episode of WWE NXT are:

NXT North American Title Match

Roderick Strong vs Austin Theory (taped on 12/18)

Lio Rush & Keith Lee vs Tony Nese & Damian Priest (set to tape on 12/20)

Candice LeRae vs Taynara (taped on 12/18)

Bianca Belair vs Shotzi Blackheart (taped on 12/18)

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
