We open up the show talking about AEW's ITV deal as well as their deal with Fite TV. We then review the second ever NXT on USA show. We go over all the matches over both hours. Dave talks about Triple H's comments about AEW talent, Smackdown's ad rates compared to other Fox shows, NXT UK, ratings, and Matt Taven's contract status as ROH champion leading into this weekend's PPV. We also have updates on two UFC fights.
