Velveteen Dream to face Finn Balor on NXT next week


Velveteen Dream and Finn Balor are facing off on NXT next Wednesday.

That match was announced for next week's show after Balor confronted Dream on NXT tonight. When Dream called Adam Cole arguably the greatest NXT Champion of all time, Balor took exception to that and threatened Dream. Dream responded by setting next week as the date for a match between them.

WWE has been building to Dream challenging Cole for the NXT Championship. A face-to-face chat between Cole and Dream had been hyped for tonight, but the storyline ended up being that Cole sent in a video instead. Cole said no one in NXT deserves a shot at his title.

Tegan Nox & Shotzi Blackheart vs. Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez has been confirmed for next week's NXT as well. That was set up by Blackheart helping Nox when Kai interfered in Nox's match against Gonzalez tonight. Blackheart attacked Kai after she interfered, and Nox then got the win by rolling up Gonzalez while Gonzalez was trying to chokeslam Blackheart.

NXT's interim Cruiserweight Championship tournament will also continue with three matches next Wednesday. Those are Kushida vs. Tony Nese, Drake Maverick vs. Jake Atlas, and El Hijo del Fantasma vs. Jack Gallagher.
