This week, NXT was presented on the SyFy channel, the original home of the NXT reality show series from 2010. Not only was this week's episode of NXT pre-taped, but it was up against the 2020/2021 Olympics which drew 14.263 million viewers, per SpoilerTV.
The major angles from this week's episode saw Dakota Kai turn on Raquel Gonzalez, presumably setting up a future match for the NXT Women's Championship. Also, Samoa Joe officially was reinstated as a professional wrestler and will face Karrion Kross at NXT TakeOver 36 during SummerSlam weekend.
