The WWE NXT crew is set to take a brief hiatus from their regular live television schedule for the weekly Tuesday night program on the USA Network, temporarily stepping away from the Performance Center.
Fresh off the heels of last Sunday’s electrifying Vengeance Day Premium Live Event, which culminated in Carmelo Hayes shocking the audience by turning heel and viciously assaulting Trick Williams, the NXT roster is gearing up for a well-deserved break. However, fans can still anticipate an action-packed lineup for the upcoming week’s show.
Scheduled matches for the next week’s episode include a highly anticipated clash between NXT Tag Team Champions The Family (Tony D’Angelo & Stacks) and the formidable Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic winners The Wolf Dogs (Bron Breakker & Baron Corbin). Additionally, the card features Von Wagner & Mr. Stone facing off against Noam Dar & Oro Mensah, as well as exciting singles matchups between Kiana James and Brinley Reece, and Adriana Rizzo and Jaida Parker.
Notably, next Tuesday’s WWE NXT will be double taping, generating content for two episodes. The February 13th episode will air live, followed by the taping of the subsequent week’s show.
According to Dave Meltzer’s insights in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the decision to pre-tape the episodes stems from tryouts taking place in Perth, Australia. With key NXT personnel attending these tryouts, including talent and production crew, it necessitates the temporary departure from live programming.
As WWE gears up for the Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event in Perth, NXT will resume its live shows on February 27th, promising to deliver even more thrilling action and captivating storylines upon their return.
