WWE announces Finn Balor vs. Fabian Aichner for NXT


Finn Balor is set to face off with another one of WALTER's Imperium stablemates.

WWE has announced that Balor vs. Fabian Aichner will take place on NXT this Wednesday. Balor's feud with WALTER and Imperium kicked off with an angle where he was attacked by Marcel Barthel and Aichner in February, with them telling Balor that WALTER sends his regards.

Balor defeated Imperium's Alexander Wolfe on an NXT UK episode last month.

On NXT last week, a video aired where Balor said that -- while he and WALTER aren't able to make their next moves right now -- this time will pass. Balor declared that WALTER's NXT United Kingdom Championship reign is on borrowed time.

WWE following up on Charlotte Flair's NXT Women's Championship win from WrestleMania 36 is also set for NXT this Wednesday. NXT's interim Cruiserweight Championship tournament will begin on the episode as well.

Charlotte defeated Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania to win the NXT Women's title. Io Shirai is the number one contender to the championship after winning a six-way ladder match on NXT last week.

Group A for the interim NXT Cruiserweight title tournament has Kushida, Drake Maverick, Tony Nese, and Jake Atlas, while Group B has Isaiah "Swerve" Scott, El Hijo del Fantasma, Akira Tozawa, and Jack Gallagher. Each participant will face the other wrestlers in their group once, and the wrestler with the best record from each group will advance to the finals.
