Kyle O'Reilly Added To NXT Gauntlet Eliminator

Two spots remain...

WWE announced on Saturday that Kyle O'Reilly is the third participant in the gauntlet eliminator match taking place on this Wednesday's edition of NXT. The winner receives a shot at NXT champion Finn Balor.

Kushida and Cameron Grimes were previously announced for the match, with two entrants still to go.

O'Reilly posted a video on social media, discussing how he's unproven as a singles performer, and this rates among the biggest challenges of his career. NXT champion Finn Balor responded, "In my book you ARE proven. It’s not an ‘if’ ,it’s very much a ‘when’ you face Finn Bálor. And when we do face , the only TING you will miss - Is having a partner to tag when your getting chewed up. Huge oppertunity Kyle. Don’t Craic under the pressure. Prinxe = Dimond"

The rules for the gauntlet eliminator 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 the NXT championship at the next TakeOver
