WWE NXT Arrival 2014 is here. It’s set to air at 8 p.m. ET on the WWE Network.
A livestream is available on WWE.com or via WWE’s app.
The NXT league features the slated future superstars of WWE–basically the league’s minor league system. The league includes current champion Bo Dallas, tag team champion The Ascension, and women’s champion Paige.
The competition will be at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida.
WWE stars such as John Cena and The New Age Outlaws will offer analysis on the event in the pre-show, which starts on WWE Network at 7:30 p.m. ET.
Here are the matches:
Dallas, the current champion, takes on Adrian Neville. Dallas is predicted by many to win.
-NXT Women’s Championship
Paige defends her title against Emma. Paige is predicted to win.
-No title at stake
Sami Zayn vs Antonio Cesaro. Cesaro is predicted to win.
Nevilla spoke with WWE.com about his thoughts on the match, which will be a ladder match.
“You’re probably thinking I’m nervous, but I’m not nervous,” he said. “I spent nine years competing under pressure in Japan, Europe, Africa and here in the states so I’m used to pressure. This is the most important night of my career, and on Thursday night, I’m going to treat it as such. I’m counting down the hours and the minutes because I know in my heart I can beat Bo. If nothing else, I need to prove to myself that I can beat him and win the NXT Championship.”
Other WWE stars will play a direct role in the event.
Shawn Michaels will be on hand, as well as The New Age Outlaws.
Cesaro will be particularly watched after he beat Randy Orton and looked incredibly strong throughout the recent Elimination Chamber match.
He faced Zayn in a two-out-of-three Falls match of the year candidate last year, another compelling storyline.
