1 of 5


Follow along with our review of Wednesday night’s episode of WWE NXT.

On Wednesday night, the latest episode of WWE NXT would take place. It’s the second one of the Apr. 5 taping, which saw the post-NXT TakeOver: Chicago fallout go down.

This is the first show without Shinsuke Nakamura, who had his goodbye from the brand last Wednesday. It was emotional, but helped usher in the latest part of this new era for developmental.

Bobby Roode opened the show, gloating about his NXT Championship win. However, someone new stepped up to him. With TakeOver: Chicago about one month away, would this person become the next challenger to the title?

Billie Kay and Peyton Royce took on Liv Morgan and Aliyah in a women’s tag match. This stemmed from a Performance Center altercation that took place last week. Which team got the upper hand?

This show also saw the end of Tye Dillinger in NXT. It wrapped up a multi-year era for him, which started as an enhancement talent, only to work his way up into the middle of the card. This won over the fans with the “Perfect 10” gimmick, which drew reactions at every show he appeared at.

So, on Wednesday, Dillinger faced long-time rival Eric Young in a Steel Cage. Who walked out with a victory?

All of this, and more, from Wednesday’s NXT show can be seen in our review. Let’s dive into the action.
