Face-to-face, Gonzalez promo, Dragunov set for WWE NXT

The build to a third match between Adam Cole and Kyle O'Reilly will continue on next week's NXT.

WWE has announced that Cole and O'Reilly will take part in a face-to-face segment on NXT next Tuesday. The segment will be mediated by NXT general manager William Regal.

Since the Undisputed Era broke up, Cole and O'Reilly have a 1-1 record against each other. O'Reilly defeated Cole in an unsanctioned match at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver this April, while Cole defeated O'Reilly at NXT Great American Bash last month.

Cole defeated Bronson Reed in the main event of last week's NXT. After the match, O'Reilly attacked Cole with a steel chair and suplexed him onto the steel steps. It was claimed on NXT tonight that Cole wasn't currently medically cleared to compete due to the attack.

WWE has also announced that NXT Women's Champion Raquel Gonzalez will "break her silence" on next week's NXT episode. Dakota Kai turned against Gonzalez last week and laid her out with a kick. Tonight, a video aired where Kai explained her actions. Kai took credit for giving Gonzalez her start in NXT and said Gonzalez was selfish for going after the NXT Women's Championship when it should have been Kai's opportunity.

Ember Moon vs. Sarray has also been announced for next week's NXT. Plus, NXT UK's Ilja Dragunov will appear on the episode. Dragunov is challenging for WALTER's NXT United Kingdom Championship at NXT TakeOver 36 on Sunday, August 22.

After airing on Syfy for two weeks due to the Olympics, NXT will be back on USA Network next Tuesday. Here's the full list of what's been announced for the episode:

  • Face-to-face segment with Adam Cole and Kyle O'Reilly
  • NXT Women's Champion Raquel Gonzalez will break her silence
  • Ember Moon vs. Sarray
  • Ilja Dragunov appears
  • The NXT Breakout Tournament will continue
