The Opening Segment For This Week’s NXT Revealed + Big Match Confirmed

WWE posted the following on Tuesday night, announcing the opening segment and a match for this week’s NXT broadcast. Ember Moon will open the show following her return at NXT TakeOver 31.

Also, Kushida vs. Tommaso Ciampa will take place.

You can check out the official announcement below:

Ember Moon returns to kick off NXT
The NXT Universe, and NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai in particular, received a major shock at TakeOver 31 when Ember Moon revealed herself as the individual behind the mysterious vignettes that have aired in recent weeks.

Riding into TakeOver on a motorcycle, Moon made her presence felt inside the Capitol Wrestling Center and stared down The Genius of the Sky after Shirai’s successful defense against Candice LeRae.

Now that Moon is back on the black-and-gold brand, the former NXT Women’s Champion won’t waste any time making her intentions known, as she’s set to kick off this week’s episode of NXT.

What will Moon have to say about her stunning NXT homecoming and plans for the future? Find out Wednesday on NXT at 8/7 C on USA.

Kushida and Tommaso Ciampa set for competition
International Superstar Kushida has displayed a rougher, more aggressive side recently, but NXT’s resident Time Splitter might meet his match in brutality when he battles former NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa.

The match, which is scheduled as the first bout on NXT TV this week, pits two of the black-and-gold brand’s most experienced — and perhaps most ruthless — Superstars in head-to-head action.

Can Kushida capitalize on his defeat of Velveteen Dream at TakeOver 31 with a victory over The Blackheart? Or will Ciampa, who has made a painful example of Jake Atlas recently, stop Kushida just as he appears to be getting on a roll?

Tune in to NXT Wednesday at 8/7 C on USA.
