The card keeps growing. If there is one thing that NXT knows how to do, it is set up a Takeover card in a hurry. They are very good at setting feuds up in advance, which allows them to announce matches in rapid succession. That is the kind of thing that can help out a lot and given how little time they had from the announcement of their next Takeover to the show itself, and now we know another match.
One of the bigger stories in NXT as of late has been Damian Priest attacking Finn Balor. The attacks started just over a month ago with Balor being taken out in the back before a scheduled match. Balor swore revenge on whomever did it but then Priest attacked him again, revealing himself as the attacker all along. I think you can figure out where this is going.
WWE.com has officially announced that Balor and Priest will meet in a match on at NXT Takeover: In Your House on June 7. This will be Priest and Balor’s first match against each other, though they have teamed together at some NXT live events earlier this year. This is the fourth match confirmed for the card, with Takeovers traditionally containing five matches.
This seems a bit personal. Check out how we got here:
Opinion: This is hardly a surprise but there is something fun about watching NXT put together these cards, even though you already know where things are going. There is nothing wrong with setting things up so far in advance that you know it is coming. That is a good things that can help them out when things are in a crunch and shows just how far in advance NXT plans things out. Given the way WWE tends to run things at such a fast pace, this is rather nice for a change.
What do you expect from the match? What is next for both of them? Let us know in the comments below.
