Two more matches, Adam Cole segment set for this week's NXT
WWE has confirmed two more matches and a segment that will be airing on this Wednesday’s episode of NXT.
Matt Riddle vs. Roderick Strong and Tyler Breeze vs. Austin Theory are both airing on NXT this week. NXT Champion Adam Cole will also share a “special message” on the episode.
“Just days ago, Adam Cole became the longest reigning NXT Champion in history, surpassing Finn Bálor’s 292-day turn as titleholder,” WWE.com wrote.
“The Undisputed ERA’s leader has a special message for the NXT Universe, and plans on sharing it tomorrow night. Just what does Cole have in store? Find out tomorrow on NXT at 8/7 C on USA Network!”
Cole celebrating becoming the longest-reigning NXT Champion in history had originally been announced for last week’s show. WWE was also building up Cole defending the title against Velveteen Dream at TakeOver: Tampa. Starting on April 1, several of the matches that were planned for TakeOver will air on NXT television over the next several weeks.
Riddle & Pete Dunne are the current NXT Tag Team Champions. They won the titles from Cole and Strong’s Undisputed Era stablemates Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish at NXT TakeOver: Portland last month.
There was a backstage segment on NXT two weeks ago where Theory insulted Breeze for not panning out as a superstar. Breeze responded by calling Theory a flash in the pan.

WWE has also announced that Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano will have to answer to Triple H after their brawl at the Performance Center two weeks ago.
