Ricochet defends title in triple threat:

The rivalry between NXT North American Champion Ricochet, WWE U.K. Champion Pete Dunne and Undisputed ERA’s Adam Cole has seen plenty of twists and turns and produced countless breathtaking matches in recent months. Yet, the biggest battle in this three-way war is still to come on when all three Superstars will collide in a Triple Threat Match with Ricochet’s North American crown at stake this week on WWE NXT.

NXT General Manager William Regal ordered the gigantic match after Undisputed ERA disrupted Dunne and Ricochet’s instant-classic Champion vs. Champion Match on Sept. 19, cheating both Superstars of the chance to become a dual titleholder. Conceding that Cole, the inaugural North American Champion, was owed his contractually required title rematch, Regal added the wrinkle of The BruiserWeight in the interest of fairness, concluding that The Panama City Playboy had only held off on invoking his rematch so that Dunne could soften up The One and Only first.

Whether Regal’s theory is accurate matters not. His say is final, and in this case, it’s a cause of celebration for the NXT Universe. Don’t miss a second of the action when Ricochet defends the NXT North American Title against Dunne and Cole on WWE NXT, streaming this Wednesday, exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network.

What does Nikki Cross know? 

No one knows what goes on in the mind of Nikki Cross, but she has been slowly providing a glimpse – specifically in the case of who attacked Aleister Black. In the last two weeks, Cross has been hinting at knowing the possible suspect(s). First, she barged in on Sarah Schreiber’s interview with Undisputed ERA to exclaim that she knows the culprit(s). Last week, while reiterating her desire to “play” with Bianca Belair (whom Cross is scheduled to face on Oct. 17), she eerily suggested “I know, I know, I know, I know…”

The question on everyone’s mind now is what, exactly, does Cross know? Will we find out this Wednesday when NXT streams on WWE Network at 8/7 C?
