Finn Balor vs. Damian Priest set for NXT TakeOver: In Your House


After a challenge that was issued last week, a new match has been officially confirmed for NXT TakeOver: In Your House.

Finn Balor vs. Damian Priest has been made official for the Sunday, June 7 TakeOver special. The announcement was made during Priest's appearance on The Pat McAfee show this morning.

On NXT two weeks ago, there was an angle where Priest attacked Balor and cost Balor his match against Cameron Grimes. Priest gave Balor The Reckoning on a steel chair and then revealed that he was the person who attacked Balor in the NXT locker room last month. Priest said he wants his name to live forever and attacking Balor was part of that.

A promo from Priest then aired on NXT last week. He said Balor put NXT on the map, and that's why he's coming for Balor. Priest challenged Balor to a match at TakeOver.

Three matches have been confirmed for TakeOver: In Your House thus far. NXT Women's Champion Charlotte Flair will defend her title against Rhea Ripley and Io Shirai in a triple threat match at the show, and Karrion Kross (w/ Scarlett) will make his TakeOver debut against Tommaso Ciampa.
