Welcome to Bleacher Report's preview for the April 24 episode of NXT on the WWE Network. Spoilers are already out there, but if you want to know what will happen without having the matches spoiled for you, you're in the right place.

This is the final week in the series of tapings WWE did last month to cover four weeks of NXT, which means after tonight, we will see recent events in WWE start to affect NXT.

The upcoming debuts of Adam Rose and Bo Dallas, the recent debut of Alexander Rusev and the Divas title win by Paige will all have an impact on WWE's minor league brand.

Depending on which report you read, there are either going to be four or five matches featured on NXT this week.

Sasha Banks and Charlotte will take on Paige and Emma in tag team action, but don't expect to see Paige donning the Divas title since this match was filmed several weeks ago.

These four women could very well represent the future of the Divas division. Each one of them possesses her own unique character traits, and each one has demonstrated good skills between the ropes.

The Bulgarian Brute, Alexander Rusev, will be in action against Travis Tyler. Tyler is not high up in the NXT rankings, which means this is likely going to be a squash match.

Then again, it seems like almost any match Rusev is in these days is a squash. WWE wants to build him as the next big foreign heel, and having him quickly dominate opponents could very well accomplish that goal.

Or it'll make him boring. Time will tell.

Another Tyler will also be in action on Thursday when Tyler Breeze takes on Angelo Dawkins. Breeze is an interesting character, but Dawkins is the one to keep your eye on.

Dawkins has not had a lot of time on NXT yet, but he is the kind of athlete WWE looks for. He has been successful in numerous college sports, including wrestling. He and Breeze are very different, but they could mesh well as opponents.

Two Superstars who WWE audiences will be familiar with will clash when Tyson Kidd takes on Mason Ryan.

Both Kidd and Ryan have had brief periods of success on WWE television, but neither one has managed to make a big impact with their singles careers.

NXT could be how one or both of these men proves to WWE that they have something to offer. Ryan has a lot of qualities of a young Batista, and we all know how talented Kidd is.

This could be the match of the night if Ryan is able to keep up with the fast pace Kidd is probably going to be running at.

Then we have the mystery match. The Usos and Sami Zayn will take on Corey Graves and The Ascension. There is no word on if this is a dark match or the main event, but let's hope it's the latter.

All six of these men are very talented, and a match involving all of them will be exciting to watch if we do end up getting to see it.

Overall, this looks like a pretty average week of NXT. The NXT champion won't be featured in any matches this week, but that's to be expected when WWE films four weeks of shows in one night.

What are you looking forward to on NXT this week?
