NXT Great American Bash returning this July


For the second straight year, the Great American Bash is making its return as a special edition of NXT.

During NXT TakeOver: In Your House tonight, it was announced that NXT Great American Bash 2021 will take place on Tuesday, July 6. The show will air live on the USA Network starting at 8 p.m. Eastern time.

Last year's NXT Great American Bash was the first time WWE had used the Great American Bash name for a show since an episode of SmackDown that took place in 2012. NXT Great American Bash 2020 was held over two weeks. Night one was headlined by Io Shirai defeating Sasha Banks. In the main event of night two, Keith Lee defeated Adam Cole in a title vs. title match where the NXT Championship and NXT North American Championship were both on the line.

Great American Bash was originally an NWA/WCW event. WWE later used the show's name for an annual pay-per-view between 2004-2008. A WWE PPV named "The Bash" also took place in 2009.
