Roderick Strong challenges Velveteen Dream for the NXT North American Championship. The Undisputed Era will defend their titles against the Street Profits.

It appears WWE will be pulling no punches heading into this show. Rumors have been circulating about appearances from main roster stars. Due to Kevin Owens being fired on Smackdown and then tweeting weird numbers of his own, many believe he will show up next week.
Of the women in the 4-way, LeRae is the only one who has not had an opportunity at Baszler’s Title. Could this be her chance? She most likely will be the biggest fan favorite of the match and would get a huge pop if she pulls out the win. Stay tuned to WrestleTalk for more updates on the NXT USA debut.
