Cameron Grimes confirmed for WWE NXT gauntlet eliminator match

Two of the five wrestlers who will be taking part in NXT's gauntlet eliminator match have now been confirmed.

WWE announced today that Cameron Grimes will take part the first-ever gauntlet eliminator match on NXT next Wednesday. Kushida has also been confirmed as one of the participants for the match.

The winner of the gauntlet eliminator will challenge for Finn Balor's NXT Championship at NXT TakeOver on Sunday, October 4. The full rules for the gauntlet eliminator match are:

  • Two wrestlers will start in the ring.
  • Every four minutes, another wrestler will enter.
  • The only way to be eliminated is via pinfall or submission.
  • The last man standing will become the number one contender to the NXT Championship and challenge Balor for the title at TakeOver.

This will be the first time Grimes has wrestled since the ladder match for the NXT North American Championship at TakeOver XXX last month. Damian Priest won that match to become the new North American Champion.

There will also be a number one contender's battle royal on NXT next Wednesday to decide NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai's challenger for TakeOver. Rhea Ripley, Candice LeRae, Tegan Nox, Dakota Kai, Raquel Gonzalez, Shotzi Blackheart, Aliyah, Kayden Carter, Indi Hartwell, Xia Li, and Kacy Catanzaro are set for the battle royal.
