Well, well, well. NXT had a shock on the cards at a house show in Lowell, MA.
Finn Balor’s 292 day reign with the NXT title came to an end after a devastating defeat to Samoa Joe. The Samoan Submission Machine has been relentless in his efforts to win the gold, and did so in emphatic style.
However, this does free Finn up to make an appearance at Payback in just under two weeks time. The most likely outcome seems to be that Balor will once again lead the Bullet Club (maybe renamed Balor Club) and start a feud with AJ Styles as a heel.
As for the new champ, maybe his match with Shinsuke Nakamura will come sooner than we first thought.
Things just got a lot more interesting.
