The Prince Starts His March
After appearing on NXT UK a few weeks back and defeating Imperium’s Alexander Wolfe, Finn Balor sets his sights on the lightweight boulder of a man in Fabian Aichner! Will Aichner stop The Prince in his tracks as he sets his eyes on the NXT UK Champion or will Balor take another step closer to his epic clash with WALTER?
Another Title Shocker
After visiting The Bump last week and announcing the aforementioned tournament, William Regal returned again to this time to announce the fate of the NXT Tag Team Championships.
In the wake of Pete Dunne stuck in the UK due to the pandemic, Matt Riddle must find a tag team partner for tonight’s sure-fire main event! Per the orders of NXT GM, we get a Takeover-level NXT Tag Team Championship match between The Stallion and his partner of his choosing against the former, and only, 3-time tag team champions in NXT history: The Undisputed Era!
Speculation will run rampant all day into tonight’s show as who will Riddle choose to be his partner. Will it be his fellow EVOLVE alum and a thorn in the UE’s side, the North American Champion Keith Lee? Will it be his former Catch Point running mate and current Daniel Bryan mentor, Drew Gulak? Could it be someone yet to debut in NXT? Either way, tonight is sure to be full of surprises inside the WWE Performance Center!
Adding to this, we can hope to hear more from former NXT Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley, current #1 contender Io Shirai, and more on the eventual match up between the undisputed longest reigning NXT Champion in history Adam Cole, and the man whose become a thorn in Undisputed Era’s side, Velveteen Dream.
