5 Reasons why Finn Balor vs. Johnny Gargano is best for business
NXT has been throwing surprises at fans for some time now, but this month has topped all others in this regard. October saw the return of Tommaso Ciampa to NXT after a lengthy battle with injury, while former Universal Champion Finn Balor also stepped back into the NXT ring after a successful main roster stint.
This week on NXT, the brand took a huge step forward and addressed Balor’s future by turning him heel, which will allow him to set his sights on former NXT Champion Johnny Gargano heading forward.
In one of NXT's most shocking moments ever, Balor took the wind out of Gargano and delivered some vicious moves that led to 'The Rebel Heart' being stretchered out of the arena.
While NXT has made a bold move in turning Balor heel and against Johnny Gargano, we will take a look at five reasons why the move is best for business.
#5 Creates more hype around NXT
NXT recently had its big break, as the brand moved to a live format broadcast on the USA Network. The transition proudly displayed the brand's development to a massive new television audience, and showed why NXT is so beloved by wrestling fans all over the world.
To create more hype around WWE's third brand and also increase viewership, NXT surprised everyone by bringing former Universal Champion Finn Balor back into the fold.
Finn Balor was NXT’s longest-reigning Champion, while Johnny Gargano certainly looks like the future face of the company, so it makes sense that the two would do battle for NXT supremacy. Together, Gargano and Balor are capable of putting on performances that will certainly leave the WWE Universe in awe. Gargano vs. Balor has always felt like a dream match, and a proper feud between the two can get the fans, social media, and news outlets talking, which will only serve to increase hype around NXT and get more eyes on the Black and Gold brand.
