LOWELL, Mass. — Samoa Joe defeated Finn Bálor to capture the NXT Championship at a Live Event Thursday night in Lowell, Massachusetts, WWE.com has confirmed.
Joe’s victory put an end to Bálor’s record-breaking reign as NXT Champion. The Demon won the title on July 4, 2015, and held it for 292 days, surpassing the mark set by Neville in 2014.
Now that Samoa Joe has finally snared NXT’s top prize, what will the destroyer have in store for anyone who dares to step up and challenge him? How will Finn Bálor handle this setback? Find out by tuning into NXT, Wednesdays at 8/7 C, only on WWE Network, and stick with WWE.com for complete coverage of this developing story, including photos and video.
More importantly, does this mean Finn Balor's call up is imminent? And what does it mean for his former running buddies, WWE World Heavyweight Championship number one contender, AJ Styles, and the recently debuted duo of Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson? Can we be seeing the reformation of the Bulle... er, Balor Club, coming soon?
