NXT 8/31/2021 Preview: Dragunov Comes to NXT; Gargano vs. Knight; Ciampa vs. Holland; More!



Here's what's on tap for tonight's NXT:

  • Roderick Strong vs. Ikemen Jiro

  • Tommaso Ciampa vs. Ridge Holland

  • Kyle O'Reilly vs. Duke Hudson

  • Johnny Gargano vs. LA Knight

  • NXT UK Champion Ilja Dragunov comes back to NXT

Malcolm Bivens said last week that since Roderick Strong wasn't able to face Kushida for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship, he would be issuing an open challenge this week. Ikemen Jiro accepted the challenge over the weekend. Who will walk out victorious.


The rivalry between Tommaso Ciampa and Ridge Holland has really heated up since Holland made his return to NXT. Last week, Holland injured Timothy Thatcher and put him on the shelf indefinitely. Since no one will be there to watch Ciampa's back, will he suffer the same fate as his tag partner?


Kyle O'Reilly and Duke Hudson got into a brawl backstage last week. Thus, the two will settle their differences this week when they meet one-one-one.


Johnny Gargano and LA Knight both found themselves inside William Regal's office last week. Although they were there for different reasons, it didn't stop the two from insulting each other. Now, they'll meet one-on-one this week. Who will come out on top?


Long live the Czar! Ilja Dragunov did the unthinkable when he beat the mighty WALTER at Takeover 36. Dragunov will return to NXT with NXT UK gold in hand. Who could come calling for his championship?


Tune in tonight to see what goes down!
