WWE holds this show on September 18th in Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University. WWE has already announced two big matches for the premiere episode.

NXT North American Title bout between champion Velveteen Dream and challenger Roderick Strong of The Undisputed ERA, as well as a Triple Threat Match featuring Bianca Belair, Io Shirai, and Mia Yim are set for this show. 

The winner of the three-way match will become the next challenger to NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler.

The October 2nd episode will air as a complete two hour live broadcast on the USA Network, which will remain from that point on.

The reason for that is due to them going head-to-head each week with All Elite Wrestling’s new series on TNT starting on October 2nd.
