WWE reveals NXT lineup: Three matches, KO Show, Ripley segment


WWE has revealed most of the lineup for tonight's episode of NXT.

In an email promoting tonight's show, WWE advertised that the following will take place on NXT tonight:

- A member of Undisputed Era vs. Pete Dunne (w/ Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch) in a ladder match for the WarGames advantage

Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly, Roderick Strong & Bobby Fish) are facing Team McAfee (Pat McAfee, Dunne, Lorcan & Burch) in the men's WarGames match at NXT TakeOver: WarGames on Sunday, December 6. WWE hasn't revealed which Undisputed Era member will be taking part in tonight's ladder match.

- The KO Show with NXT North American Champion Leon Ruff

Along with hosting the KO Show segment, Kevin Owens is doing guest commentary for tonight's NXT. He's filling in for Wade Barrett on the show.

In a shocking title change, Ruff won the NXT North American Championship from Johnny Gargano on NXT two weeks ago. Ruff got the win after Gargano was distracted by Damian Priest. A rematch between Ruff and Gargano took place on NXT last week, but it ended in a disqualification when Priest punched Ruff so Gargano wouldn't win the title.

Ruff slapped Priest in the face after being upset about Priest treating him like a joke. Later in the show, Gargano attacked Priest. Ruff then got involved and got the better of a three-way brawl with Gargano and Priest.

- Ember Moon vs. Candice LeRae (w/ Indi Hartwell)

LeRae and three partners will face Shotzi Blackheart and three partners in this year's women's WarGames match at TakeOver. Moon & Toni Storm defeated Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez last Wednesday, but LeRae and Indi Hartwell helped Kai and Gonzalez attack Moon and Storm after.

- Kushida vs. Timothy Thatcher

Kushida defeated Arturo Ruas and Thatcher defeated August Grey on NXT last week. Thatcher was confronted by Tommaso Ciampa after his win.

- Rhea Ripley will address the NXT Universe

On last week's NXT, Io Shirai retained her NXT Women's Championship against Ripley in the main event. Shirai and Ripley shook hands and hugged after the match.
