Last week on NXT, William Regal announced that the first challenger for new NXT Champion Finn Balor would be decided in a brand new match type.
The man to face Balor at NXT Takeover on October 4th would be decided in a ‘Gauntlet Eliminator’ match. The match would feature five men in a similar format to an Elimination Chamber but without the cage structure.
Over the last few days, the various potential challengers have been announced one by one and now the field of five is complete.
The competitors in the match will be Bronson Reed, KUSHIDA, Timothy Thatcher, Kyle O’Reilly and Cameron Grimes.
Following this week’s NXT (Subtitled ‘Take Off To Takeover’), one of these men will be confirmed to receive their first NXT Championship opportunity.
We will have the full results of Wednesday’s show reported on the site. The show will also feature a battle royal to determine the challenger for Io Sharai’s women’s title at Takeover.
