Kay Lee Ray is on the WWE NXT roster full-time going forward and will be residing in the United States, has confirmed.  This is not meant to be a short run and then she's back to NXT UK.  She has been at the WWE PC working out since the first week of August, as we reported at the time.

With Adam Cole and Karrion Kross gone, we are told the current plan is for Johnny Gargano to be positioned as the top heel for the brand.  We are told Pete Dunne and Roderick Strong will also be main players on the heel side of things.

Numerous WWE sources have reached out to over the last 24 hours to relay that reports that the company's relationship with Full Sail University has ended are incorrect.  There are no plans to tape at Full Sail as long as the pandemic continues, but the door is open to return down the line when restrictions ease up.  There are still FSU students who are regularly working all aspects of WWE NXT tapings.

There was a LOT of talk coming out of his insane match at Takeover 36 that WALTER needs to be on WWE NXT proper on a consistent basis.  Whether that happens or not, time will tell.

This week's tapings will all be building to a big segment for Indi Hartwell and Dexter Lumis on the next live episode of WWE NXT on 9/14.   

There will be a return from injury on tonight's episode as well.

KUSHIDA did not work last night's taping.
