WWE NXT 1/8/2020 Preview

WWE NXT 1/8/2020

Tonight, NXT returns to form with two-hours of live wrestling action from Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL.

The annual Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Tournament begins tonight with two first round match-ups including a huge battle between tag team champions from both NXT brands:

  • NXT Tag Team Champions Undisputed Era (Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish) vs. NXT UK Tag Team Champions Gallus (Mark Coffey & Wolfgang)
  • NXT UK’s Imperium (Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner) vs. NXT’s Forgotten Sons (Wesley Blake & Steve Cutler)

Tonight we’ll also find out who will earn a shot at Roderick Strong’s NXT North American Championship as four men do battle to determine the number one contender:

  • Keith Lee vs. Dominik Dijakovic vs. Cameron Grimes vs. Damian Priest

On the last live NXT event of 2019, Rhea Ripley defeated Shayna Baszler to become the new NXT Women’s Champion. What’s next for Ripley? Will a new challenger emerge looking for a shot at the gold, or will Shayna Baslzer be out for revenge?

NXT airs tonight at 7pm CT on USA Network.

Patriot’s Position: This looks like a fantastic show. The Dusty Classic is always fun, and this year is sweet because we get the inclusion of NXT UK which is a phenomenal brand as well. I’m excited for Undisputed Era vs. Gallus, I think that’s going to be a great match-up. The four-way looks good. I believe it’s Keith Lee’s to lose, so I’ll be shocked if doesn’t win it. It’s good to have NXT back, it is my favorite brand in wrestling.
