We have some WWE NXT spoiler notes to pass along following last night’s tapings:
* Shinsuke Nakamura worked a dark match [against Patrick Clark] at last night’s taping from the campus of Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL but didn’t appear live in any segments or matches. Nakamura will challenge Samoa Joe for the WWE NXT Championship in Japan over the weekend, in a bout that will be taped for an upcoming episode of NXT. Nakamura is favored to win back the title in his home country.
* That brings us to our second point in that Bobby Roode earned a shot at the WWE NXT Championship at last night’s taping. Today that would mean the main event of WWE NXT TakeOver: San Antonio would be Roode vs. Samoa Joe in January, however, Joe is expected to drop the belt, barring a last-minute change in plans. That’s why we’re expecting Roode to challenge Nakamura at the show in January.
* The Authors of Pain are now set for a WWE NXT Tag Team title shot at WWE NXT TakeOver: San Antonio in January.
