NXT finished building to New Year's Evil on the show's final episode of 2021.
A couple of new announcements for next week's special New Year's Evil edition of NXT were made last night. It was revealed that Riddle and WALTER will both be in action at New Year's Evil. Riddle will team up with MSK (Wes Lee & Nash Carter) to face Imperium (WALTER & NXT Tag Team Champions Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner) in a six-man tag match.
Riddle and WALTER each appeared via video on last night's show. A video from AJ Styles also aired, with Styles announcing that he'll be at New Year's Evil next Tuesday to confront Grayson Waller.
The NXT Women's Championship match at New Year's Evil will still be Mandy Rose vs. Raquel Gonzalez vs. Cora Jade after Gonzalez and Jade retained their spots in the title match. They defeated Io Shirai & Kay Lee Ray in last night's main event. If Shirai & KLR had won, they would have replaced Gonzalez & Jade at New Year's Evil.
Gonzalez & Jade had been set to face Rose's Toxic Attraction stablemates Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne last night, but Dolin & Jayne weren't on the show.
A contract signing for NXT North American Champion Carmelo Hayes and NXT Cruiserweight Champion Roderick Strong's title unification match at New Year's Evil also took place. It was announced that the winner of the match will be the North American Champion going forward.
