Timothy Thatcher Added To NXT Gauntlet Eliminator
Only one spot remains....
Timothy Thatcher becomes the fourth name to be added to the gauntlet eliminator on this Wednesday's episode of NXT.
He joins Kushida, Kyle O'Reilly, and Cameron Grimes as announced participants in the match, with one spot to be filled between now and Wednesday night.
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.
