Following their battle in the main event...
In the main event of NXT TakeOver: 31, Finn Balor and Kyle O'Reilly battled back and forth in a hard-hitting affair. Both men gave every ounce of strength they had left for the NXT Championship but after 28 minutes, The Prince caught the challenger with the Coup De Grace to pick up the win.
