If you were paying attention during this week’s episode of NXT, you might have thought it odd that the commentary team was heavily promoting a NXT Title match between Samoa Joe and Finn Balor that was set to take place at a live event in Lowell, Mass. Well, it turns out, they had a good reason to do so, as Samoa Joe defeated Finn Balor to win the NXT Title in what was certainly a special treat for the live audience.
With Balor suddenly no longer NXT Champion, and not appearing on any episodes of NXT for the rest of the month, this will surely fuel speculation that he will be making his way to the main roster very soon. By some coincidence, a bunch of guys that he used to hang out with in some sort of Club when he wrestled in New Japan are involved in the main event of the next WWE Pay Per View, just over a week from now. That’s probably something to pay attention to, right?
