Finn Balor returning to WWE NXT next week, two matches announced


Next week's episode of NXT will feature Finn Balor's first appearance since losing the NXT Championship.

WWE has announced that Balor will make his return to NXT next Tuesday. Balor will speak on the show for the first time since Karrion Kross defeated him to win the NXT Championship at TakeOver: Stand & Deliver night two earlier this month.

"Viva Mexico! Recharged, refreshed & refocused. Next Tuesday, Finn is back," Balor wrote on social media.

Prior to losing the title to Kross, Balor had been NXT Champion since September of last year. Balor defeated Adam Cole to win the then-vacant title after Kross had to relinquish the championship due to injury. Kross won the NXT Championship from Keith Lee at TakeOver XXX last August but suffered a separated shoulder during the match.

Two stipulation matches have also been announced for next Tuesday's NXT. The NXT Women's Tag Team titles will be on the line as champions Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon face Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell in a street fight. Rivals Leon Ruff and Isaiah "Swerve" Scott will also face off in a falls count anywhere match.
