At Wednesday’s NXT TV tapings, they did a bunch of matches to determine who would qualify to compete in a 4-way match at the end of the show. The winner of the 4-way match would become the number 1 contender for Samoa Joe’s NXT Championship.
So, it came down to Bobby Roode vs. Andrade “Cien” Almas vs. Roderick Strong vs. Tye Dillinger and it was an elimination match. Strong eliminated Almas, Dillinger eliminated Strong so Roode and Dillinger were the final two.
Roode pinned Dillinger to earn a shot at the NXT Championship. Presumably, he will be getting the shot at NXT Takeover: San Antonio on the night before the Royal Rumble. We will find out who will be Roode’s opponent after Saturday when Samoa Joe defends the NXT Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura.
