WWE's Network Supercard show airs exclusively on the WWE Network live from Tokyo, Japan next Saturday night, and after last night's NXT episode, it seems that the current card is shaping up as follows.
Card shaping up
The headliner is still Kevin Owens defending against Finn Balor, with it looking likely that The Irish Superstar could finally take the NXT Championship out of the grasp of the juggernaut that is Owens.
The former indy superstar has been on a role since his main roster debut and it seems he has turned the heads of the people higher up because, after just two pay-per-view matches, one loss and one victory, Owens has been handed a United States Championship match against John Cena at Battleground in four weeks time.

Whether this is a clue as to where WWE are heading with the current storyline still remains to be seen, but WWE have become less and less predictable lately so it could be an interesting one to watch.
Brock Lesnar vs Kofi Kingston is still a confusing match when looking at the bigger picture. WWE did make Brock look like less of a beast this week by allowing Seth Rollins to hit him with a Pedigree and stand tall at the end of Raw, but it would be much too far of a stretch to assume Kofi Kingston could defeat Brock Lesnar without help.

Kingston's team mates Xavier Woods and Big E will be in attendance as they defend their tag team championships against The Lucha Dragons, so they could be called in, much like they were at Money in the Bank, if they feel Kofi needs the extra help.
The thought is that Brock was already in Japan so WWE wanted him to be a part of a match and Kofi was the best opponent they had that was in the same country. It is unlikely this will be a part of the on-going main roster storylines.
Rest of the card
The Divas Championship will be on the line as Nikki Bella defends in a triple threat match against Paige and Naomi in what is a carbon copy of the match at Elimination Chamber.
It's strange that, given that this is primarily an NXT show, the NXT Women's Championship should be on the line but this could add more build to whichever NXT diva does finally join Paige.
Dolph Ziggler and John Cena will team up to take on the unlikely duo of Kane and King Barrett in a match that seems like a very thrown together, whilst Cesaro will now take on Diego of Los Matadores fame.
Even though this does seem like WWE has put this together with all the superstars who weren't already busy that night, or injured, It does look like it could be a solid show from an NXT heavy roster.
