Finn Balor is the new number one contender to the NXT Championship.
Balor defeated Keith Lee and Tommaso Ciampa in last night’s main event to become the next challenger for Adam Cole’s title. Balor got the win by hitting the Coup de Grace and pinning Lee immediately after Lee had given Ciampa a Spirit Bomb.
Cole will defend his title against Balor on next Wednesday’s NXT. They had a staredown to close last night’s show.
Next week’s NXT will also feature a Women’s Championship match. Profile pieces on Shayna Baszler and Rhea Ripley aired last night ahead of the upcoming title bout.
Last night was a big moment in the life of Angel Garza. In addition to defeating Lio Rush for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship, he got engaged by proposing to his girlfriend in the ring after his win.
