WWE said that they will have big announcements this week on WWE NXT. William Regal appeared during the final quarter of the program to let fans know what they have in store.
Regal announced that NXT will hold an elimination gauntlet match. The rules are as follows:
- Two men will start in the ring
- Every 4 minutes, another competitor will enter
- The only way to be eliminated is via pinfall or submission
The last man standing will be named the #1 contender for the NXT Title and will face Finn Balor at NXT TakeOver on October 4th. This big gauntlet match will go down next Wednesday.
The competitors in this match were not revealed. This will do a lot to shake up the roster and give plenty of Superstars a chance to get some spotlight.
Tommaso Ciampa vs Jake Atlas will also happen next week. Atlas wants to seek revenge from that beat down he took last week from Ciampa. They will also hold a woman’s battle royal to determine the #1 contender for Io Shirai’s NXT Women’s Title at NXT TakeOver.
