On last nights episode of NXT, current NXT Champion Finn Balor successfully defended his title against former Champion Adam Cole, after a distraction from Kyle O’Reilly. Before the Championship showdown, Adam Cole took some time to speak with Fox Sports Ryan Satin, and discussed his opponent ahead of their match. Cole told Satin:
“Finn Balor is not only one of the greatest NXT Champions of all time, he is one of the best that I’ve ever been in the ring with. I first stepped into the ring with Finn Balor, actually, in one of his farewell matches to actually come to NXT. I was the guy he faced off with. We wrestled each other in England, and I knew how good he was then. Now to see the talent and the skill and the passion that he has for this job really come into its own and increase by tenfold has been impressive. So I will never, ever argue how good Finn Balor is. He absolutely is one of the best I’ve ever wrestled”.
After the match, Balor had a confrontation with Karrion Kross. Kross never actually lost the title, and relinquished the title due to injury. Will Karrion Kross and Finn Balor battle it out for the NXT Championship at NXT Takeover: Stand and Deliver?
