WWE NXT listed on USA Network schedule for December 13

While neither WWE nor the USA Network have announced this, the USA Network's program grid for December 13th lists WWE NXT at 7 p.m. Eastern time.

It is not clear if this will be the episode that would normally go up on the WWE Network that day, or a compilation type of show. The show is listed for 55 minutes instead of a usual 60-minute slot. If it is the first hour of the show taped this past Wednesday, it would be built
around the tournament to crown a number one contender for the NXT title for TakeOver: Philadelphia and have Killian Dain vs. Trent Seven, Johnny Gargano vs. Kassius Ohno, and Lars Sullivan vs. Roderick Strong, plus a no DQ match between current main roster wrestlers Ruby Riott and Sonya Deville.

The Gargano vs. Ohno match in particular got rave reviews, with our NXT reporter JJ Williams calling it one of the best matches in Full Sail history.

It makes sense because that week is the annual WWE Week on the USA Network, and Tribute to the Troops, which would air on Wednesday, is being moved to Thursday, as the USA Network is airing the movie "Thor" in prime time on Wednesday night.

We'll have an update when more information becomes available.
