To kick off tonight’s (August 16) NXT special, Heatwave, a very familiar voice as Paul Heyman lended his pipes for the opener.
The opening video package was narrated by none other than the Wise Man himself, Paul Heyman.
With rumors of tonight’s Heatwave being notable and newsworthy, particularly as it regards to setting in motion who will be remaining on NXT versus graduating to the main roster, perhaps some of our favorite NXT 2.0 stars are set to meet Paul Heyman in person sometime soon.
The opening match for the North American Championship saw Giovanni Vinci battling it out with Carmelo Hayes was the first of three championship matches scheduled for tonight’s Heatwave.
Also being defended, the NXT Women’s Championship with champ Mandy Rose taking on Zoey Stark and Bron Breakker defending his NXT Championship against J.D. McDonagh.
