SmackDown Star To Headline Great American Bash Night One

WWE have announced the main event of this week’s NXT Great American Bash event. It sees a former NXT star come over from the main roster for a special appearance.

This coming Wednesday on NXT we will see the first part of the two night Great American Bash special event.

The recently announced theming, which is in no way designed to counter AEW Fyter Fest of course, will take place on July 1st and 8th.

As we learned this week, the second show will be headlined by a huge Winner Takes All NXT Champion vs. North American champion bout between Adam Cole and Keith Lee.

WWE today announced that the main event of night one will see former NXT Women’s Champion Sasha Banks return to the black and yellow brand to face current champion Io Sharai.

This promises to be a wonderful match and is also a clear endorsement that they see Sharai as a strong presence in the women’s division going forward.

Three other matches have also been announced for this coming week’s show.

Firstly, Roderick Strong will face Dexter Lumis in a strap match. Rhea Ripley will face both Aliyah and Robert Stone in an Intergender handicap match.

Finally, we will see a fatal four-way match to crown a number one contender for Sharai’s title. The match will be Candice LeRae vs. Tegan Nox vs. Mia Yim vs. Dakota Kai.
