William Regal to make two 'major announcements' on WWE NXT

WWE is hyping that a pair of "major announcements" will be made on tonight's episode of NXT.

In a tweet this afternoon, WWE revealed that NXT general manager William Regal will appear on tonight's show to make the announcements: "BREAKING NEWS: @RealKingRegal will have two MAJOR announcements tonight on #WWENXT"

Regal also tweeted: "A new episode, a new champion, and an upcoming #NXTTakeOver. I cannot overstate how grateful I am to work alongside the men and women of #WWENXT and tonight is about new opportunities."

On NXT last week, Finn Balor defeated Adam Cole to become the new NXT Champion. The title had been vacated by Karrion Kross due to him suffering a separated shoulder during the match where he won the NXT Championship from Keith Lee at TakeOver XXX last month.

WWE confirmed today that NXT's next TakeOver event will take place on Sunday, October 4 at 7 p.m. Eastern time. Further details about the show haven't been revealed.

Here's the updated lineup for tonight's episode of NXT:

  • NXT North American Champion Damian Priest defends against Timothy Thatcher
  • NXT Tag Team Champions Breezango defend against Imperium (Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner)
  • Non-title match: NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai vs. Shotzi Blackheart
  • Drake Maverick & Killian Dain vs. Roderick Strong & Bobby Fish
  • William Regal will make two major announcements
