Bronson Reed Named Final Entrant In NXT Gauntlet Eliminator
Who's getting the title shot?
WWE has named Bronson Reed the fifth and final entrant into this Wednesday night's gauntlet eliminator match on NXT.
He joins Kushida, Kyle O'Reilly, Cameron Grimes, and Timothy Thatcher in the match, which will determine the next challenger to Finn Balor's NXT title.
The rules for the match are as follows:
* Two participants begin the match
* A new competitor enters the fray every four minutes
* Eliminations occur via pinfall or submission
* The last wrestler remaining after all five men enter will challenge for Finn Balor's NXT championship at the next TakeOver
Another match on this Wednesday's episode of NXT will have TakeOver implications, as the winner of a women's battle royal will go on to face Women's champion Io Shirai at the event.
Announced participants include Rhea Ripley, Candice LeRae, Tegan Nox, Dakota Kai, Raquel Gonzalez, Shotzi Blackheart, Aliyah, Kayden Carter, Indi Hartwell, Xia Li, and Kacy Catanzaro.
Also scheduled for this Wednesday's NXT is a singles bout pitting Tommaso Ciampa against Jake Atlas. Ciampa attacked Atlas in an angle several weeks ago, which resulted in Atlas doing a stretcher job.
