During the broadcasts of NXT TakeOver Vengeance Day through WWE Network, the wrestler Finn Balor managed to retain the maximum Championship of the yellow mark after defeating Pete Dunne in combat.
This was the main event featured during the show. The two competitors engaged in a very even and violent confrontation. Dunne concentrated on the champion’s fingers and managed to apply his Bitter End but Balor was able to deal with it quickly after removing his dental protection. After a Dropkick to the face, Finn connected his Coup de Grace followed by 1916 for the count of three. After the match, Finn Balor and Kyle O’Reilly suffered a surprise attack at the hands of Adam Cole.
In this way, Finn Balor retains the NXT Championship. The prince is today 159 days since its coronation on the second night of NXT Super Tuesday. On Tuesday, September 8, 2020, Bálor managed to defeat Adam Cole to win for the second time the title that Carrion Kross left vacant two weeks before.
EDGE WATCHED THIS HAND-IN-HAND CLOSELY
After several weeks of suffering attacks by Oney Lorcan, Danny Burch, and Pete Dunne, Finn Bálor chose to challenge the latter to a heads-up for the NXT Championship. That same night, Edge decided to interrupt the verbal crossing between the two competitors, warning that he will have in mind the result of their fight. Remember that Edge won the men’s Royal Rumble on January 31, and can choose any male champion to challenge in the great event.
