The WWE will hold their third live NXT super show titled “WWE NXT Takeover II” this month and will have a WWE Hall of Fame legend in attendance. The show will also showcase the debut of one of the WWE’s new superstar signees. According to PWS on Thursday, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair will show up at NXT and he will introduce Kenta to the WWE universe.

Kenta is also scheduled to make his WWE in-ring debut at “WWE NXT Takever II.” There is no word yet on who Kenta will face, but this will give the WWE Universe a chance to see what Kenta brings to the ring. He is a close mix of Daniel Bryan, with his kicks, and CM Punk with his in-ring style. As a matter of fact, Kenta’s finishing move in Japan was the Go-to-Sleep that CM Punk made famous in America.

There is no word yet on whether or not Kevin Steen and Prince Devitt will make an appearance on “WWE NXT Takeover II.” Kenta signed before both of them and has been working at the WWE Developmental Center for longer, learning the WWE style. While all three wrestlers have a lot of experience internationally, the WWE has a different approach to their in-ring style and it takes a while to adjust. With Flair being there to introduce Kenta, there is thought that Kenta won’t be down in NXT for long.

“WWE NXT Takeover II” airs on the WWE Network on Sept. 11 and will kick off at 8 p.m. EST. The NXT title will be on the line in a four-way match between Sami Zayn, Adrian Neville, Tyler Breeze and Tyson Kidd. The Women’s and tag team titles will also be on the line on the show.
