Tonight’s episode of NXT is a can’t miss episode for fans of the brand. This week’s episode is an extended two hour edition airing the NXT Melbourne, Australia live event that took place on December 8th.
NXT tonight is headlined by the Samoa Joe vs. Shinsuke Nakamura (c) Steel Cage match for the NXT Championship. Highlights from this match have been shown on NXT since, but tonight marks the first time the huge match will be shown in its entirety.
Also tonight, it’s #DIY (c) vs. TM61 for the NXT Tag Team Championship. TM61 return to their homeland and look to capture tag team gold, but the reigning champs #DIY will be looking to spoil the homecoming. It’s sure to be a great match between these two popular teams.
The women also took the spotlight as Liv Morgan vs. Billie Kay vs. Ember Moon will air.
Here’s the full card from the Melbourne live event:
Liv Morgan vs. Billie Kay vs. Ember Moon
Blake vs. Andrade Almas
The Revival vs. Riddick Moss & Tino Sabbatelli
Patrick Clark vs. Oney Lorcan
DIY vs. TM61 (NXT Team Team Championship)
Elias Samson & Bobby Roode vs. Murphy & Tye Dillinger
Asuka vs. Peyton Royce (NXT Women’s Championship)
Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Samoa Joe (NXT Championship Steel Cage Match)
NXT airs tonight exclusively on WWE Network at 7pm CT.
I like em, though they need more of a build. Feel like they were jobbed mostly when they debuted and then all of a sudden just started winning and made it to the finals of the Dusty Classic. Was like a switch literally got flipped and it seemed a bit odd.
Tonight, NXT returns to the NXT Arena at Full Sail University.
Just weeks before TakeOver: San Antonio, the tag titles will be on the line tonight. It’s the champions #DIY vs. The Revival for the NXT Tag Team Championship. These two teams have put on amazing matches each time they’ve faced each other. Can The Revival reclaim their tag team titles tonight on NXT?
Here’s the non-spoiler card for tonight’s show:
- Billie Kay & Peyton Royce vs. Sarah Bridges & Macey Estrella - Elias Samson vs. Johnathan Cruz - Andrade “Cien” Almas vs. Oney Lorcan - #DIY vs. The Revival for the NXT Tag Team Championship
Also, what’s next for NXT Women’s Champion Asuka? Find out tonight when NXT airs at 7pm CT on WWE Network.
Pretty excited for tonight's card as the Takeover events always deliver. I'm expecting a non finish in the main event though as I feel that the blowoff will absolutely happen during Wrestlemania weekend. In fact I'm going with all the champions to retain tonight. Only title match I second guess is the tag title match but hopefully DIY get to carry the division for a bit.

1.) Great event. Loved it. Billie/Peyton looked dumb throwing Asuka back in the ring when they didn't care who won the match. Should've just laid down and let one pin the other while Asuka was outside the ring.

Good episode of NXT tonight.
Sanity is one of the best things going, like everything about them. Really hope they stay together for a good while and eventually get called up to the main roster together, and hopefully Smackdown at that. Think they'd be great on Smackdown. Nikki Cross is fantastic and given the opportunity would be big on the main roster. Always liked her a lot when I saw her in SHIMMER and SHINE.
Takeover: Orlando is looking like it'll be better than WrestleMania.
