As we already told you a few days ago, NXT had to record two episodes of its show because this year the Olympics are back and they cross with the show. PW Insider had in fact reported, which was later confirmed by NXT itself in the last episode, that NXT would stop by going to Syfy for two weeks.
In fact, it will do so with the two episodes of July 27 and August 3 that will not be on USA Network as usual. And on 21 July 2021, the yellow brand recorded the episodes at the Capitol Wrestling Center with the presence of the usual fans that we see from week to week at ringside and they have disclosed important SPOILERS on the episodes.
If you don't want to read the matches with their results, the special segments and you don't want to know anything about what happened, close the article here without continuing below. As they say: enter at your own risk.
