WWE is hyping that announcements will be made on this week's episodes of 205 Live and NXT.

Drake Maverick, the on-screen general manager of 205 Live, tweeted that there will be an announcement concerning the brand and WrestleMania tonight: "HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT concerning @WWE205Live & #Wrestlemania TONIGHT - straight after #SDLive on The Most Exciting Hour Of Action On The @WWENetwork"

Buddy Murphy retained the Cruiserweight title against Akira Tozawa on Sunday's Elimination Chamber pre-show. Murphy has been cutting promos claiming he's going to cement his legacy as the greatest cruiserweight of all time at WrestleMania.

The WWE.com preview for tomorrow's episode of NXT television also notes that a "special announcement" will be made on the show: "Get ready, because this week’s NXT will feature a special announcement. With no additional details currently available, speculation about what’s in store for the black-and-gold brand is running wild. Be among the first to find out when NXT streams Wednesday at 8/7 C on WWE Network."

NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa, NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano, Ricochet, and Aleister Black all debuted on last night's Raw.

Gargano vs. Velveteen Dream in a North American title match, Black vs. Roderick Strong, and Mia Yim vs. Xia Li will air on this week's NXT. The next set of NXT TV tapings are also taking place tomorrow.
