It’s a classic. WWE is an international company and the biggest wrestling company in the world. Its roster includes some of the most well known wrestlers throughout the world with names from a variety of countries. That can make for some interesting moments as you have some very unique pairings. WWE is taking a look back at one of the more international matches it has ever presented.

WWE has released the full match video of Kevin Owens vs. Finn Balor from Beast In The East. The match took place in Tokyo, Japan on July 4, 2015 and saw Balor defeat Owens to become the new NXT Champion. The special featured WWE wrestlers with Balor vs. Owens being the only NXT match. Balor would go on to retain the title over Owens in a ladder match at Takeover: Brooklyn in August of the same year.

These two had a nice rivalry. Check out the match and some more like it:

Opinion: I can always go for WWE opening their video value and showcasing something like this, as it is a match that has not gotten very much attention in the years since it aired. WWE has so much footage to pick from and it is hard to pin down what they should go with next. It is nice to see something like this again, if nothing else for the fact that I had not thought of it for years.
