Finn Balor to find out new number one contender for NXT title next week

The next number one contender for the NXT title will be decided next week as General Manager William Regal announced during a WWE.COM video that a battle royal will take place to see who will face Finn Balor.

The NXT title took a backseat over the past few weeks as the focus was on the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament and Balor – tag teaming with Samoa Joe – were in the tournament and eventually winning it as well.

Balor defended the title last at the NXT Takeover: Brooklyn event in a ladder match against Kevin Owens.

Also on next week’s show Nia Jax, who is the real-life cousin of former WWE champion The Rock, will be making her NXT television debut.

Four weeks worth of NXT shows are being taped tonight at Full Sail University.
