WWE will present NXT New Year’s Evil this week, and they have a special trick up their sleeves to encourage viewers to stick around. Commercial breaks are often an opportunity for fans to channel surf or get distracted, but New Year’s Evil will reduce the chance of that.

According to a report from Andrew Zarian, NXT New Year’s Evil will air with limited commercial breaks. It was not noted exactly how far between breaks we will get, but WWE is pulling out all the stops this week.

NXT New Years Evil will have limited commercial breaks. Similar to what they did last year for a big NXT show.

Limited commercial breaks is a trick proven to pull in fans and snatch a higher viewership. We will have to see if that trick works this week.


AJ Styles and Grayson Waller’s confrontation might not result in a formal match. It will be interesting to see how they book things for that. The NXT Title will also be on the line as Bron Breakker goes for Goldy, but Tommaso Ciampa is going to put up a great fight.

You can check out the lineup (so far) below.

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.
