Between NXT TakeOver 31 and AEW's one-year anniversary show, the rival Wednesday night promotions have a busy October ahead of them. But before all of that happens, both have tried to stack their lineups for this week's episodes of NXT and AEW Dynamite. For starters, NXT will see two of its champions — Damien Priest and Io Shirai — team up to face their upcoming TakeOver opponents in Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae. Finn Balor and Kyle O'Reilly will also appear on the show in a face-to-face segment (hosted by Shawn Michaels) ahead of their NXT Championship match this Sunday.
Over on Dynamite fans will see the long-awaited grudge match between Darby Allin and Ricky Starks, the first "Brush With Greatness" AEW World Tag Team Championship match between FTR and SCU and Cody Rhodes' response to Brodie Lee's Dog Collar Match challenge.
