This Wednesday, NXT joins Monday Night Raw as an institution on USA Network. Take a look at the many preeminent WWE Superstars who trace their past back to NXT.
Roman Reigns took on Elias in a Money in the Bank rematch, with it clear that Shane McMahon would be doing everything in his power to slow The Big Dog down prior to WWE Super ShowDown … including using the Wild Card Rule to his advantage. Elsewhere, Big E returned to SmackDown LIVE … but so did Dolph Ziggler, and he made it clear he is coming for WWE Champion Kofi Kingston.
Following the heated interaction earlier in the night, Kofi Kingston and Sami Zayn squared off on SmackDown LIVE.
It seemed the makeshift New Day of WWE Champion Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods and Kevin Owens was flourishing … but then the newly dubbed “Big O” shocked the WWE Universe with a jaw-dropping attack. Elsewhere, Roman Reigns faced steep repercussions for his Superman Punch to Mr. McMahon.
Looking for redemption after Andrade defeated him on night one of the Superstar Shake-up, Intercontinental Champion Finn Bálor came correct for the rematch this week on SmackDown LIVE.

The comeback kid is heading back to her home turf.
Bayley powered past Sasha Banks in a grueling bout between best friends to earn an opportunity against Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam, sending The Huggable One back to the site of one of her biggest triumphs to potentially complete a remarkable rebound run back to the Raw Women's Title.
In two weeks, either Roman Reigns or Braun Strowman is leaving the first-ever WWE Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view in the back of an ambulance. For Reigns, it may be a case of history repeating itself.
Last week, The Miz made a dent in history (albeit with some help) when he handed Finn Bálor his first pinfall defeat in WWE during an epic Triple Threat Match to determine the No. 1 Contender to the Intercontinental Championship. He did not repeat the accomplishment in their one-on-one clash.
Long before she was a Raw Superstar, Bayley was a 10-year-old superfan in San Jose, Calif., watching her favorites like Lita and Eddie Guerrero on TV. She decided then that she wanted to inspire fans the same way the Superstars of the ’90s and early ’00s did for her.
Alexa Bliss DDT’d her way into history last night when she defeated Bayley to win the Raw Women’s Championship, and on Raw, she proved it wasn’t a fluke. In fact, The Wicked Witch of WWE pinned Bayley again, though this time it was in an Eight-Woman Tag Team Match following a heated confrontation during Bliss’ “coronation” in Raw’s opening moments.
