An interview segment has been added to the lineup for this week's episode of NXT.

Sports writer and radio host Arash Markazi posted a tweet today announcing that he'll be conducting a one-on-one interview with Pete Dunne on this Tuesday's NXT. Markazi also appeared on the pre-show panel for TakeOver: Stand & Deliver last month and later conducted a sit-down interview with Adam Cole on the April 27 episode of NXT.

"JUST CONFIRMED: Tomorrow night I will sit down with one of the biggest Superstars in @WWENXT. My exclusive one-on-one interview with the Bruiserweight, @PeteDunneYxB, will be on #WWENXT," Markazi wrote.

On NXT two weeks ago, Dunne was one of three wrestlers who interrupted NXT Champion Karrion Kross. Kyle O'Reilly, Dunne, and Finn Balor all interrupted Kross, which led to a brawl breaking out.

It was announced on NXT last week that Kross will defend his NXT Championship against Balor on the Tuesday, May 25 episode of NXT. Dunne later cut a promo where he accused Kross of ducking him. Dunne called himself the baddest man in NXT and said the NXT Championship will soon be his. Dunne then defeated Leon Ruff after Ruff answered his open challenge.

O'Reilly defeated Oney Lorcan on last week's NXT but was attacked by Dunne and Lorcan after the match. The returning Bobby Fish then made the save for O'Reilly. O'Reilly thanked Fish for helping him, but he told Fish that he's doing his own thing now. Fish said he has his own scores to settle too and will see O'Reilly when he sees him.

Here's the updated lineup for this Tuesday's NXT:

  • Steel cage match: NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano defends against Bronson Reed
  • Zoey Stark vs. Toni Storm
  • "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase appears live at the Capitol Wrestling Center
  • Arash Markazi interviews Pete Dunne
