NXT TakeOver London Main Event Set As Finn Balor Vs Samoa Joe
Finn Balor will defend his NXT title against Samoa Joe in the main event of TakeOver: London.
The match was confirmed on last night’s WWE Network NXT show, with Joe vowing to take the belt he considers to be his.
He said: "After all the paperwork is finished and it is set in stone, it’ll be you and me at NXT TakeOver: London and I rightfully take over what’s mine, the NXT championship.”
Following his rear naked choke assault on Finn last week, Joe spelled out his reasons for his change in attitude.
He reasoned: “You came to me and you asked me to be your partner.
"And I made a choice. And not only did I make a choice, I put action behind it.
"I took you by the hand, Finn. I threw you on my back. I carried you through the very best NXT had to offer and we won it all.
"I asked you to give me an NXT championship title shot and much to your credit Finn, you made the right choice. You gave me my shot.
"But Finn, you put no action behind it."
Joe raged: "The very second I set foot in NXT, I was owed. But more importantly, I am entitled to an NXT championship match."
