WWE NXT Preview, September 16: Finn Balor Begins His Reign, Multiple Title Defenses

Finn Balor Begins His Second Reign

Tonight, Finn Balor will kick-off his record-tieing second reign as the NXT Champion as the WWE Universe eagerly awaits The Prince’s presence on the black-and-gold brand.

Balor’s second reign opens up a bunch of new opportunities for Superstars who have always eyed the prestigious title and it remains to be seen what plans The Prince has in store for his title going forward.

North American Championship: Damian Priest (c) vs. Timothy Thatcher

Newly crowned North American Champion Damian Priest will put his title on the line against Timothy Thatcher in what promises to be a hard-hitting contest between both Superstars.

Can The Archer Of Infamy score a successful maiden title defense? Or will The British Messiah become the eighth man to win the championship?

NXT Tag Team Championship: Breezango (c) vs. Imperium

The hot duo of Fandango and Tyler Breeze will go to war when they defend the NXT Tag Team Titles against Imperium tonight.

While Breezango dethroned Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner three weeks ago, the NXT UK Superstars haven’t quite managed to recapture the gold yet.

Io Shirai Takes on Shotzi Blackheart

After last week’s intense stare down that saw Shotzi Blackheart putting her hands on Io Shirai’s NXT Women’s Title, a non-title match is set for this Wednesday night where the American Superstar can prove her worth to the prestigious gold.

Can Blackheart cement herself as a legitimate contender? Or will The Genius Of The Sky best her opponent?

Drake Maverick & Killian Dain Battle Undisputed ERA

Tonight on NXT, Drake Maverick will join forces with Killian Dain in his battle against The Undisputed ERA’s Roderick Strong and Bobby Fish.

Can the opportunistic ERA overcome the odd pairing of Dain and Maverick?
