Finn Bálor seeks retribution for last month’s loss to Cameron Grimes
Finn Bálor achieved retribution against Damian Priest. Can he do the same against Cameron Grimes?
The Prince will look to respond to his only loss this year when he faces Grimes on NXT this week.
Fresh off his 11th NXT TakeOver victory this past Sunday over Priest, Bálor turns his attention to the man who beat him last month with The Archer of Infamy’s help. Priest’s brutal nightstick strike to Bálor left him a sitting duck for Grimes’ Cave-In and the ensuing pinfall.
Despite the less-than-honorable way in which it came, it’s a still a victory for Grimes in the record books. And the Technical Savage hasn’t stopped gloating about it since.
