• Potential Spoiler On Result Of Next Week’s NXT Championship Match
On the first super Tuesday edition of NXT, Adam Cole, Finn Balór, Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano fought in a Fatal-4-Way 60 minute Iron Man match for the NXT Championship, but the match ended in a draw between Cole and Balór, who’ll now go head-to-head on next week’s NXT for the Title.
WrestleVotes reported just before NXT last night that the match would end in a Pat McAfee interference or a draw, with the latter happening on the show.
“The two ideas for the finish of tonight’s Iron Man match were either Pat McAfee costing Adam Cole the match -OR- the match ending after 60 minutes tied and starting the sudden death overtime next week as the show comes on the air.”

This is likely an indication that Balór was supposed to win the NXT Championship last night, but WWE went with the draw to create more hype among the fans.
Balór will most likely win the NXT Championship next week, and it’s still possible that it happens due to Pat McAfee coming for revenge against Adam Cole.
