NXT Championship is set
Last Wednesday, WWE NXT started the show with Karrion Kross. On Takeover, Kross defeated Keith Lee to become the new NXT Champion. However, Kross suffered a separated shoulder injury that will take him out of action for an extended period. Kross relinquished the title that set up an NXT Championship, a fatal-four way, 60 minute Iron Man Match that will occur on NXT Super Tuesday. Johnny Gargano, Finn Balor, Tommaso Ciampa, and Adam Cole will compete and become a two-time NXT Champion. Who is the favorite? Here are the possible answers as to who will win the NXT Championship:
Johnny Gargano - The Johnny Wrestling or The Wednesday Knight is a former NXT Champion. He is the first triple crown winner in NXT history. Gargano found ways to win as a singles competitor with his new gimmick. However, three or more is too crowded for him, resulting in no success. Gargano had the North American title slip away from his hands as he fell off the ladder in a Fatal-Five-Way Ladder Match at NXT Takeover: XXX. On July 14, Gargano lost in a triple threat qualifying match. On June 17, he lost another triple threat match for the NXT North American Championship.
Finn Balor - The Prince, has dominated the competition since his return to NXT. He has an impressive record 19-3 (Wins-Losses). Balor lost a triple threat match on July 29 but never pinned. On August 12th episode, Balor lost to Velveteen Dream. Timothy Thatcher interfered with the match that cost a chance for the North American Championship. However, at takeover, Balor defeated Thatcher with revenge. The other two losses came with additional costs by Johnny Gargano and Damian Priest. Their actions prevented Balor from accomplishing his goals. Now, Balor has a chance to complete his goal.
Tommaso Ciampa - Ciampa returned to action and defeated Jake Atlas. He took his frustration on him after the match by continuously punishing Atlas. Nobody knows which state of mind Ciampa is in, similar to Randy Orton. He seeks to destroy anyone that gets in his way. Ciampa is a former NXT Champion that never lost the title. He had to relinquish the championship due to injury. Ciampa's previous match was on June 7, NXT Takeover: In Your House, when Kross demoralized him and left him out of action for over two months.
Adam Cole - On July 1, Cole lost to Keith Lee. Lee made history by earning the title "Two-belt champion." Cole's next match was on takeover when he defeated Pat McAfee, a match that stole the show. Cole has a chance to win back the NXT Championship.
