Finn Balor is riding high at the top of the mountain once again after capturing the NXT Championship, and while there are plenty of contenders waiting to knock him off his perch, it’s going to take an almighty effort to dethrone him.
The Gauntlet Eliminator next week will give us the chance to see a new number one contender be crowned with NXT recently revealing that the first entrant into that match will be Kushida.
While Kushida did make it clear that he’s ready to try and cause the upset if he does get the chance to go up against Finn, the Irishman was a bit more dismissive.
I like you Kushida, good luck in the gauntlet, i hope you win. So I can beat you again.. like I did 10 years ago,9 years ago, 8 years ago, 7 years ago, 6 years ago etc etc FXXX
– The Line Starts Here
These two men are obviously capable of having a great match together, but the real story here is that Kushida finally seems to be rising up as a legitimate force to be reckoned with in NXT.
