WWE brought a renewed focus to NXT, because they want to beef up that show’s viewership for upcoming television rights talks. Now, it seems that they have a winning formula, and the Judgment Day has a lot to do with that. Of course, booking something like that between three brands takes a bit of coordination.

Dominik Mysterio made WWE history as he became the first person ever to compete in the main event of RAW, SmackDown, and NXT in the same week. That NXT match saw him win the North American Title as well, a championship he went on to defend against Sami Zayn this week on RAW.

Ringside News reached out to inquire about how this booking situation is handled within the company. We asked if the main roster’s creative team has anything to do with Judgment Day’s booking in NXT.

A tenured member of the WWE creative team then confirmed to us that “it’s all discussed.” Therefore, Judgment Day isn’t showing up to NXT and just handed a script that only had NXT writers’ hands on it.

We will have to see what is next for Judgement Day in NXT. Rhea Ripley will compete on this week’s episode, and Dominik Mysterio will also be on the show as North American Champion. Dirty Dominik Mysterio and Rhea Ripley are also slated to kick off this week’s television broadcast, so fans will have a reason to watch from the beginning.

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.
