WWE announced today that a live NXT special will be coming to the Network in December from the United Kingdom but before all that, the main roster will run another live special that formerly would have been a house show, much like Beast in the East in Japan. This one will be broadcast on Sat., Oct. 3, 2015, at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York.
The latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter (subscription required but recommended) reports that WWE now feels like Brock Lesnar is a big attraction based on the success of the aforementioned show in Japan. For that reason, he'll be a major focus of the promotion for this special, namely that it will be his first match back in the Garden since 2004.
There have been rumors that he will face Bo Dallas, which would explain the angle on Raw this week, but the Observer notes those rumors are incorrect and a decision hasn't been made yet.
Elsewhere, the Dudley Boyz were recently added to the card. Here's how it's shaping up right now:
- Brock Lesnar vs. TBA
- Seth Rollins vs. John Cena
- Randy Orton vs. Sheamus
- Dolph Ziggler vs. Rusev
- Cesaro vs. Kevin Owens
- Dudley Boyz vs. TBA
- Chris Jericho vs. TBA
The card, of course, is subject to change but that's how it looks so far.
