WWE has revealed the hosts for tonight's modified format edition of NXT.

Prior to tonight's NXT, WWE announced that the episode will be hosted by Triple H and Tom Phillips. WWE issued a statement yesterday noting that the show "will air as regularly scheduled in a modified format with elements ranging from in-depth character profiles and story breakdowns as well as never-before-seen interviews and content."

Triple H and Michael Cole did commentary for last Friday's SmackDown, while Phillips, Byron Saxton, and Jerry Lawler called Raw.

Adam Cole celebrating becoming the longest-reigning NXT Champion in history was originally announced for tonight's show. Candice LeRae was also supposed to face Mercedes Martinez, with the winner qualifying for the number one contender's ladder match that was scheduled for NXT TakeOver: Tampa.

Chelsea Green, Mia Yim, and Tegan Nox had already qualified for the ladder match, though the status of the match is unclear with TakeOver: Tampa being canceled.
