After taking the unprecedented step of changing the NXT title on a house show a few weeks ago the hottest brand in wrestling is about to have another first – It’s first Steel Cage Match. The rivalry between Finn Balor and new NXT Champion Samoa Joe has been boiling over for months now and after a heated contract signing on Facebook Live yesterday General Manager William Regal told the two they would be fighting inside a steel cage. With speculation rife that Finn Balor will be leaving NXT soon to join his Bullet Club brothers on the main roster the June 8th TakeOver show could well be The Demon’s final appearance in NXT. Regardless, this rivalry has become one of NXT’s most intense and well-received contests ever and it is only fitting that the violent and sometimes bloody feud come to a head inside a steel cage.
