Last week, WWE NXT GM William Regal made a huge announcement regarding the NXT Championship. This announcement came after Karrion Kross had to surrender his title due to injury.

Regal announced a first time-ever four-way ironman match which included four former NXT champions – Adam Cole, Johnny Gargano, Finn Balor, and Tomasso Ciampa.

The match was one of the best in NXT history. Ciampa looked game and was firing on all cylinders as the match started.

Adam Cole tried to play it smart and make a deal with Finn Balor to have an ally. Unfortunatley, Balor didn’t fall for it and attacked him. The ‘Prince’ attacked Cole and delivered the Coup de grâce and pinned him to win the first fall.

Cole struck soon after Gargano got his fall. The former NXT champion pinned Gargano for his first fall of the match. Ciampa would soon tie the match as he too win a fall for himself with all tied at 1.

Towards the end, there was just one minute left and Ciampa was in full control. However, Balor would put down Ciampa and hit a Coup de grâce. Balor pinned Ciampa and was leading the match after winning his second fall.

Cole then appeared out of nowhere, knocked out Finn Balor, and pinned him to win his second fall as time got over. William Regal had to come out to clear the air regarding the winner. He announced that Finn Balor and Adam Cole will face each other for the title next week.

The greatest WWE NXT Champion of all time vs The second best NXT Champion of all time

This match is indeed number one vs number two of NXT. Adam Cole and Finn Balor are the greatest NXT Champions of all time.

Cole was NXT champion for a historic 403 days until his loss to Keith Lee at NXT: The Great American Bash. Finn Balor is the best NXT champion among the rest. The ‘Prince’ was NXT Champion for 292 days.

This is a difficult one to predict as Adam Cole and Finn Balor are both top-class performers. However, my vote would go for Finn Balor.

Finn Balor needs this Championship a little more. Since his return to NXT, Balor hasn’t been in any intense rivalry or good storyline. This win could revive his career again.

As for Adam Cole, the only reason he isn’t seen as the choice to win this contest is Pat McAfee. Triple H has confessed in many interviews that Pat McAfee’s NXT run was not a one-off thing. Hence, Pat McAfee’s interference is a huge possibility.
