NXT begins at 8/7 pm CST on the WWE Network. Be sure to check back to WZ all night long for results and news coming out of tonight’s episode.
Adam Cole will get his first taste of in-ring action in NXT when he makes his debut inside the yellow ropes tonight, facing one-half of the NXT Tag Team Champions, SAnitY’s Eric Young.
SAnitY has been at odds with Cole, Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly since TakeOver: Brooklyn III, when the opportunistic trio first made their presence felt. On that night, Fish & O’Reilly jumped Young & Alexander Wolfe from behind after their NXT Tag Team Title win. Later in the evening, Cole was revealed as the group’s third man, joining Fish & O’Reilly to beat down newly crowned NXT Champion Drew McIntyre.
McIntyre and SAnitY scored a measure of retribution last week when they used the outsiders’ surprise tactics against them: Following Fish & O’Reilly’s victory over Tyler Bate & Trent Seven, McIntyre and SAnitY emerged on the scene and sent the triumvirate scrambling.
While on tour with NXT this past weekend, Young took a moment to address Cole directly:
What should the NXT Universe expect when the 28-year-old Cole, wildly talented, famously brash and long-rumored to be on his way to WWE, competes for the first time in a sanctioned NXT match? Don’t miss a second of the action when NXT streams at 8/7 C, exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network.
