Samoa Joe and Raquel Gonzalez segments set for WWE NXT

Segments with Samoa Joe and NXT Women's Champion Raquel Gonzalez will be airing on tonight's episode of NXT.

WWE has announced that Joe will "address the NXT Universe" on tonight's NXT. The segment comes after it was revealed that NXT Champion Karrion Kross had laid out general manager William Regal in last week's show-closing angle. The attack was Kross sending a message to Joe.

On NXT two weeks ago, Joe was the special guest referee for Kross' NXT Championship defense against Johnny Gargano. Kross retained his title and then choked out Joe after the match.

Regal told Joe last week that he had to settle his issues with Kross peacefully. Joe promised that last week would be the end of it, but Joe said he couldn't guarantee that it would be peaceful. Joe waited for Kross to arrive to the building throughout last week's show.

Gonzalez retained her NXT Women's Championship against Xia Li last Tuesday. Tonight, Gonzalez will address the NXT women's division.

WWE has also made a few more announcements for tonight's show. Hit Row's Top Dolla & Ashante "Thee" Adonis will face Imperium's Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner, Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter will take on Franky Monet & Jessi Kamea, and there will be a segment where LA Knight goes golfing with his butler Cameron Grimes. Grimes will be Knight's caddy for the segment.

Due to a scheduling conflict with the Olympics, tonight's NXT and next Tuesday's episode are both airing on Syfy. The episodes were taped at the Capitol Wrestling Center last Wednesday.

Here's the updated lineup for tonight's show:

  • Bronson Reed vs. Adam Cole
  • Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher vs. Pete Dunne & Oney Lorcan
  • NXT Breakout Tournament first-round match: Carmelo Hayes vs. Josh Briggs
  • Hit Row (Top Dolla & Ashante "Thee" Adonis) vs. Imperium (Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner)
  • Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter vs. Franky Monet & Jessi Kamea
  • Samoa Joe addresses the NXT Universe
  • NXT Women's Champion Raquel Gonzalez addresses the NXT women's division
  • LA Knight goes golfing with his caddy Cameron Grimes
