In a breaking news update, William Regal announced that Samoa Joe will defend his NXT Championship against Finn Balor in NXT’s first ever Steel Cage match at the next Takeover event.
Below is what WWE posted:
“NXT General Manager William Regal made the announcement today during a contract signing at the WWE Performance Center that was broadcast on Facebook Live just three days after a wild brawl erupted between champion and challenger at a Live Event in Portland, Oregon. There, the entire NXT roster had to clear out of the locker room in order to separate the fierce rivals. According to Regal, the decision to turn the bout into a Steel Cage Match was done to ensure the safety of NXT fans and guarantee a definitive conclusion to the rivalry.”
After signing the contract, Joe said Balor is making the biggest mistake of his life, while Balor said he’s going to become the first ever 2 time NXT Champion.
