Tommaso Ciampa, Keith Lee and Finn Bálor square off to determine No. 1 contender to the NXT Championship
The next challenger to NXT Champion Adam Cole will be determined tomorrow on NXT, when Tommaso Ciampa, Keith Lee and Finn Bálor square off in a Triple Threat Match. The winner will challenge Cole for the title on the Dec. 18 edition of NXT.
All three men have a claim to the next crack at Cole. Ciampa pinned Cole in the brutal WarGames Match at NXT TakeOver, while Lee pinned the champion in a six-man tag team match this past Wednesday. Bálor has had his sights set on the title since his return to NXT, but made his intentions clear when he clocked Cole with a Pele Kick last week.
Who will emerge victorious and earn an NXT Championship opportunity?
Lio Rush defends his NXT Cruiserweight Championship against Angel Garza
The heated rivalry between NXT Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush and Angel Garza will reach its boiling point when the two battle for the title tomorrow on USA Network.
It all started during their first championship encounter several weeks ago, when Garza taunted Rush’s wife and family in the crowd. The champion warned Garza to keep his distance, then sent a message directly to his rival when he decked Garza backstage following his match at the TakeOver: WarGames Pre-Show. Garza had to be restrained from attacking Rush the following Wednesday during a WWE.com exclusive interview.
There will be no keeping these two rivals apart when they square off for the NXT Cruiserweight Title tomorrow night.
