There won’t be a cruiserweight title match on NXT TV tonight after all

This week’s episode of NXT TV was dubbed “Title Tuesday” in part because Kushida would be putting the cruiserweight championship on the line against The Diamond Mine’s Roderick Strong. Unfortunately, just hours before the show is set to go on the air, General Manager William Regal brings word that match isn’t going to happen after all.

Here’s his explanation, as well as his new plan for Strong:

As my colleague Sean talked about in his preview for this week’s show, there are real questions surrounding what NXT television will look like moving forward after reports came out indicating a major shift in philosophy is coming. The Diamond Mine were allegedly a big part of Triple H’s plans before those reports hit, so it should be most interesting to follow along with their progression from this point forward.

We’ll also pass along any word on just what is going on with Kushida just as soon as it becomes available.
