World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) NXT is changing with each passing day as at the end of every week’s episode, well-established stars of the black-and-gold brand are heading to Friday night’s SmackDown and Monday night’s Raw. On Tuesday night, July 20, the WWE NXT continued to create a new foundation. The reigning women’s NXT champion Raquel Gonzalez was challenged for her title and was forced to defend her crown against Xia Li. Diamond Mine used NXT cruiserweight champion Kushida to make a statement and the Japanese star looked more than ready to answer him via a tag team match, where he teamed up with Bobby Fish.
Meanwhile, William Regal’s enforcer Samoa Joe promised a response to NXT men’s champion Karrion Kross, who choked out the 42-year-old American wrestler in last week’s episode. On the other hand, the NXT Breakout Tournament is on the roll as Odyssey Jones and Andre Chase made their NXT debuts.
Franky Monet is the most skilful and influenced wrestler in the NXT universe. However, despite her stardom, she has never faced any top competitor inside this ring and on Tuesday night she once again entered the ring with an unknown opponent.
