Finn Balor and Adam Cole will battle on NXT this week for the NXT Title. This match happened because a four-way iron man match didn’t produce a winner. They might have something interesting in store for this week as well.
During Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez noted that he was told that we’re not getting a clean 1, 2, 3 in the middle of the ring. He said that shenanigans are expected in the NXT Title match this week.
He made it very clear that he was not told the winner. Alvarez also noted that he believes that NXT will get a new champion this week, but the finish could be controversial.
This is very interesting because both Cole and Balor are technically heels. Adam Cole did work as a babyface in his feud with Pat McAfee at TakeOver, so it’s plausible he will work as the babyface against Balor.
