Adam Cole to have live negotiation with William Regal regarding The Velveteen Dream

Convincing Adam Cole to postpone his own celebration is no easy task, but The Velveteen Dream seems to have accomplished it.

Cole, who was planning on commemorating one full year as NXT Champion this Wednesday, altered course and posted a short video to Twitter, wherein he demanded a live negotiation with NXT General Manager William Regal and laid out his plans to “make sure The Velveteen Dream disappears forever!”

Regal has since accepted Cole’s proposal, but what exactly does the NXT Champion have in mind? Will His Purple Highness be far behind? Find out on the black-and-gold brand Wednesday at 8/7 on USA Network.

Kurt Angle to referee Cage Fight between Matt Riddle and Timothy Thatcher this Wednesday

Matt Riddle and Timothy Thatcher are stepping into the cage, and Kurt Angle will be joining them. The WWE Hall of Famer and Olympic Gold Medalist will serve as special guest referee for The Original Bro’s Cage Fight against Thatcher this Wednesday night on NXT.

Thatcher debuted as Riddle’s partner in place of Pete Dunne, who was unable to appear to defend the NXT Tag Team Championship. Riddle & Thatcher seemed to catch lightning in a bottle, fending off The Undisputed ERA’s Bobby Fish & Roderick Strong to retain the titles.

But The Newly-Bros imploded in less than a month and lost the titles to Imperium, with Riddle’s easy-going demeanor apparently driving Thatcher mad. The Original Bro craftily rolled up Thatcher two weeks ago to win their first bout against each other, though the tension was far from settled.

Thatcher called for a match that could only be won by knockout or tap-out. Riddle one-upped him, proposing that they meet inside a cage. But what kind of a cage exactly does Riddle — who is familiar with fighting inside chain link as a former UFC welterweight — have in mind? And what sort of impact might Angle have?

Rhea Ripley will team with Io Shirai to face Charlotte Flair and a partner of her choice

Rhea Ripley and Io Shirai are both getting their chance at Charlotte Flair and the NXT Women’s Championship come NXT TakeOver: In Your House — but they want a piece of The Queen sooner.

NXT General Manager William Regal took notice, and the two top challengers to The Queen’s throne will get exactly what they’re looking for this Wednesday as they team up to face Flair and a partner of her choice.

Can The Nightmare and The Joshi Judas coexist to send a message to the champion ahead of TakeOver? Meanwhile, The Queen hasn’t exactly endeared herself to her peers since returning to the black-and-gold brand. Whom will she call upon as her partner?

---------------

Figured I would get this up early since there's plenty to warrant a discussion already. Looks kind of an interesting show given the preview. Hinting towards a Velveteen has to leave NXT if he loses stipulation, a potentially different cage setup with escaping not being a way of winning and the intrigue of who Charlotte's mystery partner could be.

That cage looks pretty cool, it looks like a new version of the lion's den. And I really hope they keep Kurt around, I still think he would rule as a manager.

Added Impact Wrestling Slammiversary to the Prediction Schedule - as with Fyter Fest, if the show is recorded before hand then the title will not be defended at it.
Gonna be watching that new season tonight when I get off work.

Right now, the chat doesn't seem to be connected. :cudi so when the show starts, post in the thread until we know or not. But it's good to stay in it until we know.
Fuck yeah! :mark: Chase Elliott wins!
