It’s Wednesday, so that means it’s time for out WWE NXT preview. We are getting closer and closer to the next NXT TakeOver, and that means that things are heating up. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at what NXT has on tap for us tonight.

5. The Next Chapter

Well, if you like a good hoss fight, this week’s title bout between champions The Authors of Pain and Heavy Machinery should do the trick.  Paul Ellering and his monsters were none too pleased at having to defend their titles this week (which is fair really, given the lack of on-screen credentials for the newcomers), though with the lack of quality tag teams in NXT currently, who else was NXT going to run out there; do Blake and Murphy still exist? This should be a fun match displaying the contrasting uber-serious Authors going up against the “steaks and weights” lightheartedness of Machinery. If this match impresses, perhaps we’ll see a rematch at next month’s Takeover.

4. Johnny (Back to) Wrestling

When last we saw Johnny Gargano he was lying in a pile of broken table in Chicago, victim of an Air Raid Crash at the hands of former friend and tag partner, Tommaso Ciampa. After nearly 2 months of waiting, the NXT faithful will finally get to hear what’s on the mind of Johnny Wrestling. With no Ciampa around to retaliate against, where does Gargano turn his attention? Does he look for a new partner, or more likely start the slow climb up the ladder to the NXT title?
