WWE has announced the date of the next NXT special, but the big news isn’t when; it’s who is going to be there.
The special is slated for Thursday, December 11 on the WWE Network, and it looks like ex-Ring of Honor Champion Kevin Steen will be on the card.
Steen, who has yet to debut on NXT television, appears in the promotional image issued by WWE along with Sami Zayn, Finn Balor (who oddly is listed by his former ring name, Fergal Devitt), Triple H, Hideo Itami (a.k.a. Kenta), Charlotte and Adrian Neville.
In the release, WWE also noted that Triple H will host a conference call prior to the fourth NXT special.
“As you can see from the attached photo, our future looks bright,” Triple H says in the release.
The NXT specials have featured some of the best WWE in-ring work of the year thanks to Zayn, Neville, Cesaro, Tyson Kidd and Tyler Breeze.
The expected main event for the NXT IV is Zayn vs. Neville for the NXT Championship in what should be the culmination of the former El Generico’s title chase.
