On Zelina Vega’s celebration for Andrade “Cien” Almas:

Life is good for Andrade “Cien” Almas. Not only is El Idolo the keeper of the NXT Championship, but the Superstar he defeated to win the title, Drew McIntyre, is out of the picture for now due to an arm injury he suffered against Almas at TakeOver: WarGames.

As NXT General Manager William Regal’s plan for determining Almas’ challenger at TakeOver: Philadelphia begins to take shape tonight in the form of two Qualifying Matches, Almas is sitting pretty, reaping the benefits of being the titleholder.

One such perk will be the Championship Celebration that Almas’ business manager, Zelina Vega, plans to throw for him tonight on WWE NXT. What will Almas have to say about the current state of affairs in NXT, as well as the battle to determine his next opponent? Find out tonight at 8/7 C, exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network.

On Killian Dain and Trent Seven facing off:

Kassius Ohno and Velveteen Dream aren’t the only Superstars preparing for a high-stakes battle tonight, as SAnitY’s Killian Dain and Moustache Mountain’s Trent Seven are also set to duke it out in a qualifying bout.

The NXT Universe won’t soon forget the path of destruction that The Beast of Belfast carved in last month’s Triple Threat WarGames Match. The Undisputed ERA claimed victory in that encounter, but there’s no denying that Dain made a lasting impression on all who witnessed the chaos. Can the mesomorphic Dain continue to unleash carnage all the way to the NXT Title?

To do so, he’ll first have to get past Seven, who earned entry into the Qualifying Match by triumphing in a Battle Royal at a recent NXT Live Event. Seven might be giving up strength and size to SAnitY’s brawny brawler, but the Moustache Mountaineer is nothing if not shrewd and calculating. Will Seven’s ring savvy win out against Dain?
