5 reasons why Finn Balor, Tommaso Ciampa, and Keith Lee will battle for a shot at the NXT Championship
This week’s WWE NXT had some interesting matches and segments which gave us two huge matches for the future. Firstly, Shayna Baszler announced that she would give Rhea Ripley a shot at the NXT Women’s Championship two weeks from today.
The second major announcement came from William Regal himself, as he has booked a massive triple-threat match between Finn Balor, Tommaso Ciampa, and Keith Lee to determine the #1 contender for the NXT Championship next week.
The winner of the match will receive a shot at Adam Cole’s NXT Championship on December 18.
The massive match is sure to excite the NXT Universe, who have always put their fate in the Black & Gold brand to deliver. In this article, we'll look at the 5 reasons why William Regal has announced a triple-threat match to determine Cole’s challenger.
#5 We’ve already watched Finn Balor defeat Tommaso Ciampa
Last week, Tommaso Ciampa challenged Finn Balor to a match for the main event of the night. The brand gave the fans a match they were expecting to get further down the road.
During the match, Balor and Ciampa gave it everything they had before Adam Cole appeared to attack Ciampa and hand Balor the advantage. The Prince of NXT took full use of the NXT Championship which was dropped in the ring and the attack by Cole, scoring a victory over Ciampa.
Although Balor scored an unclean victory over Ciampa last week, it will still go down as a victory for the former Universal Champion.
With that in mind, the brand may have decided against booking a rematch between the two men and opted to add another dimension to the battle instead.
Since Balor already has a victory over Ciampa under his belt, and Lee is relatively new to NXT, he will walk into the battle as the favorite to win the match. This could result in some interesting spots and booking for the three men.
