This week’s WWE NXT was not aired live. Instead, the matches were recorded last week and they were aired on Wednesday (Thursday in India). WWE took this decision so that wrestlers could spend some time with their family on Christmas. The show was headlined by a Tag-Team match between the duo of Keith Lee & Lio Rush and Damian Priest & Tony Nese. Plus, fans also saw the debut of Austin Theory as he faced Roderick Strong for the NXT North American Championship.
