NXT title win

During last night’s 4/25 WWE RAW on the USA Network, a commercial aired to preview this week’s episode of WWE NXT on the WWE Network. In the commercial, it focused on the fact that footage of Samoa Joe defeating Finn Balor to win the NXT Championship at last week’s NXT live event in Lowell, Massachusetts will air on the show this week.

NXT airs on WWE Network tomorrow night at 8:00 p.m. Eastern. Wrestleview.com will have a full recap of NXT later this week on the site.


  1. Kinda of a dick move that WWE did this but I am glad they will make it up by showing that match on NXT Wednesday night.

  2. I don’t think it’s a dick move at all, it would have been had they not aired it (or, worse, had Balor win the belt back then try to moreorless pretend it never happened, as has occurred before), but it was a great way of advertising to fans that their untelevised shows were worth attending for potentially massive moments. And at least it took place in an actual match, unlike when Diesel destroyed Backlund in second just three days after Backlund had won the title.

  3. True, but some fans would have preferred seeing this on PPV or on TV.

    Perhaps “dick move” was the wrong choice of words, but still you are correct and that WWE just proved that you really need to pay attention to all of their shows, even their live house shows, to stay up to date on what’s going on in the WWE.
