The winner of this match will earn the chance to challenge NXT Champion Finn Balor at the TakeOver event on October 4th.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE has talked about running the next NXT TakeOver special outside of Full Sail University.
This would be a change to what WWE has been doing as all NXT events during the COVID-19 pandemic have taken place in Winter Park, Florida.
