WWE have confirmed that the NXT Great American Bash will be returning next month.
The show will take the place of the regular NXT weekly broadcast for a one off event on Tuesday July 6th.
Last year’s Great American Bash got a huge thumbs up for fans and critics. In 2020 the event was held as a two week affair. The first week was headlined by Io Shirai successfully defending the NXT Women’s Championship against Sasha Banks. The second week was headlined by a winner takes all match that pitted NXT Champion Adam Cole against North American Champion Keith Lee. The match was won by Lee who celebrated being a dual title holder with a red, white and blue ticker tape shower in the ring.
There is no indication of a main event for the 2021 edition. But if recent rumours are anything to go by, could we be seeing the return of one of NXT’s major names from the past?
