Adam Cole and Finn Balor fought tooth and nail against one another for the NXT Championship yesterday evening and while no teeth were extracted throughout the course of the bout, a new champion was crowned. Cole suffered the hard-fought defeat at the hands of his former Bullet Club brother in Balor and post-match, the two shared in a moment of respect for one another. Post-match backstage, Cole was approached to give his thoughts on the loss.
“Well obviously I’m disappointed,” Cole made clear. “That’s not the outcome I wanted, but truth be told the better man won tonight.”
He was then asked to describe the moment of respect shared between the two.
“I do have respect for Finn Balor. I mean considering the fact we both went through the exact same 60 minute Iron Man match last week, went through a grueling match tonight. Finn Balor’s good and he proved tonight he was better than Adam Cole, but Finn Balor better hope that I don’t get another opportunity at the NXT Championship because if I do, the outcome’s going to be a lot different and that is undisputed.”
