NXT is starting to fill out its Gauntlet Eliminator match, which will determine the No. 1 contender for Finn Balor’s belt. However, they are drip feeding the entrants by releasing them one at a time. The first person confirmed is Kushida, who has recently beat up Velveteen Dream and Austin Theory.
The rules can be seen below:
- Two men will start in the ring.
- Every four minutes, another competitor will enter.
- The only way to be eliminated is via pinfall or submission.
- The last man standing will be named the No. 1 Contender and challenge Finn Bálor for the NXT Title at the next edition of NXT TakeOver on Sunday, Oct. 4.
