According to latest reports, Finn Bálor is in line to defeat Kevin Owens for the NXT Title at “Beast in the East” WWE Network Supercard from Tokyo, Japan on July 4th.
One of the main reasons for Kevin Owens dropping the NXT Title is his full-time main roster shift and WWE US Title match against John Cena. He’s slated to become the new WWE United States Champion at either Battleground or SummerSlam. Below is the match-card for “Beast in the East” WWE Live Event:
– Brock Lesnar vs. Kofi Kingston
– Chris Jericho vs. Neville
– The Lucha Dragons vs. Big E and Xavier Woods
– John Cena and Dolph Ziggler vs. Kane and King Barrett
– WWE Divas Title Match: Naomi vs. Paige vs. Nikki Bella (c)
– Cesaro vs. Diego
– WWE NXT Title Match: Kevin Owens (c) vs. Finn Balor
WWE Hall of Famer & former WWWF Champion Bruno Sammartino underwent back surgery this past week & now he’s said to be doing great. He’s still in the hospital.
