NXT will be pushed from the USA Network to Syfy for the next two weeks due to the ongoing Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Those two episodes were both taped inside the Capitol Wrestling Center on Wednesday night, and spoilers from those shows have already made their way online.
They include what appears to be the two big matches for NXT TakeOver 36 during SummerSlam weekend, as well as the return of a previously injured star. So in case you don’t want to be spoiled (Spoilers by Wrestling Observer) for the next two weeks, stop reading here.
