NXT New Year’s Evil Preview (1/6): Balor vs. O’Reilly, Kross vs. Priest


NXT kicks off 2021 with a dose of evil

WWE presents NXT New Year’s Evil tonight on the USA Network live from the Capitol Wrestling Center in Orlando, Florida.

NXT‘s special events are typically great and New Year’s Evil should be no exception. NXT facies stiff competition from AEW New Year’s Smash on TNT, so fans are in for another great night of wrestling from both companies.

WWE has announced the opening match (Karrion Kross vs. Damian Priest) and the main event (Finn Balor vs. Kyle O’Reilly) will air without any commercial breaks.
