NXT returns to the WWE Network tonight after an outstanding TakeOver: Chicago. Last week’s episode was a typical fallout show post-TakeOver; there weren’t any new developments, and it mostly focused on highlights. However, last week NXT held their tapings for their upcoming two months of shows, and there were a ton of interesting developments.
