Triple H makes NXT announcements - contains a small spoiler for Unstoppable.

Matt Bloom (Jason Alberts) has been promoted to permanent head coach of NXT and Sara Del Rey has been promoted to his assistant. Triple H said she will continue her role as agent/trainer on the main roster aswell, so she becomes a much stronger link between NXT and the main roster.

Sami Zayn WILL challenge Kevin Owens tomorrow night, despite the injury he sustained two weeks ago.

Hideo Itami is OUT of the Triple Threat match, but he will be represented on the show from a storyline perspective.

Hunter said his big-picture idea is two seperate NXT tours with a national/international advanced level NXT tour and a local, grass roots tour in Florida trying to work their way up to the A-level tour.

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

First off, good news for Alberts, he's clearly been working hard and its paid off for him, I only hope this doesnt keep him off the announce desk permanently as he has been notable in his absence, I thought he was excellent in that role, and worked well with Graves. Interesting that they are strengthening ties between the two rosters, probably to help make transitions up easier on the guys.

Good news for Zayn, seems the injury wasnt as serious as first worried, not so good news for Itami. If im correct, this is the first time WWE have directly addressed his injury, so maybe they were playing to waiting game to see how he would do, its obviously not good. Dont know what they mean by 'story-line perspective'. Maybe someone will attack him at some point to take him out the match? I feel bad for him because this could set him back big time, wish him all the best in his recovery.

I like the idea of separate tours, although it makes it sound like NXT gets it own NXT. The guys cant perform infront of Full Sail all the time because you need to learn how to work different crowds, so more tours is only a good thing. Its no secret that some of the talent isnt as good as others - Jason Jordan and Tye Dillenger are no Balor or Owens, so it makes sense to give them their own kind of tour to work.

I think the reason for 2 tours is clear. They have an A tour that is designed to make money. The likes of Balor, Owens, Itami have all worked these size arenas all over the world, they don't need to tour to develop. But NXT needs them to draw if it is going to make money as its own brand. I still am not sure why WWE feels a need to develop this additional wrestling brand, but I guess we shall see in the future.

The B tour, well NXT does have a lot of developmental talent who simply need to be in that training centre every day training, and that means they need to be close to home for that.

There is talk that Itami may be replaced in the match
Guess:
Uhaa Nation or Samoa Joe?

For tonight
* NXT Championship Match: Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn
* NXT Women’s Championship Match: Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch
* NXT Tag Team Championship Match: Blake and Murphy vs. Enzo Amore and Big Cass
* Triple Threat #1 Contenders Match: Finn Balor vs. Tyler Breeze vs. ????
* Baron Corbin vs. Rhyno
* Emma and Dana Brooke vs. Bayley and Charlotte

I think Owens retains. IF he does move up to WWE (and I think NXT has to be careful how many wrestlers they take off their books with these tours coming up) then he just drops the belt. Zayn has to go up, there's nothing left for him in NXT.

Banks retains.

Tag could go either way. I expect Enzo and Big Cass as they are way over.

Balor becomes the #1 challenger again.

I really couldn't care about Corbin and Rhyno, but obviously Corbin wins.

Emma and Brooke win the tag, but I'm really not into that match either.

Owens retains. I agree Zayn needs to go up.

Banks retains before dropping it to Bayley soon.

I want to see E&C win, but Im afraid that NXT are in a bit of a habit of just putting the tag titles on the most over team right away. I would have B&M retain, after Carmella turns on Enzo and Cass. This feud has another big match in it before Enzo and Cass get the tag title pay off.

Balor vs Breeze could go either way, but if Balor brings the demon I expect him to go over

Corbin wins. Theres potential going forward. He called out an ECW original on the tour and had a match with Tommy Dreamer. They could keep going down this route with him. Or with Samoa Joe, which would be awesome for him.

Im not into the womans tag either tbh, think Emma vs Bayley could be its on stand alone match. I dont think either Brooke or Charlotte will take the pin, so I'll go opposite to you and say Bayley pins Emma, just because.

I don't think Zayn will go up yet. I reckon he's gonna get a little rest anyway, but they may be a little wary of losing people at the moment with Itami out. Although, the best way to fill that gap is to send some bottom the card workers down to get involved in feuds. Personally, I think Zack Ryder deserves the chance to go and work down there in front of a vocal crowd. Think Ryder vs Breeze would be interesting. I'd also love to see Slater go down and work the crowd.
