Finn Balor vs. Timothy Thatcher Announced For NXT "Takeover: XXX"

Finn Balor vs. Timothy Thatcher is now official for Saturday’s WWE NXT “Takeover: XXX” event.

Thatcher attacked Balor during the chaos in the finish of last night’s Second Chance Qualifier to determine the final spot in the Takeover Ladder Match for the vacant NXT North American Title, which saw The Velveteen Dream earn the final spot over Balor.

When you come at The Prince, you’d best not miss, and Timothy Thatcher may learn that the hard way.

As ordered by NXT General Manager William Regal, Finn Bálor will take on Thatcher at NXT TakeOver XXX in a what figures to be a heated bout after Thatcher cost The Prince a chance to become North American Champion.

But in Thatcher’s mind, Bálor already cost him as well. The pugnacious technician had The Prince locked in an Achilles hold last month in a Triple Threat Match to qualify for the North American Title Ladder Match. However, with Thatcher preoccupied, Dexter Lumis applied Silence for a victory over Thatcher by technical submission.

Bálor had one more chance to qualify when he took on The Velveteen Dream this past Wednesday, but Thatcher intervened to ensure he wouldn’t.

The Prince had been laser-focused in recent weeks on seizing the one accolade missing from his NXT resume: the North American Title. What price might Thatcher pay for ruining Bálor’s plans?

The 30th NXT Takeover event will air live this Saturday, August 22, during WWE SummerSlam Weekend. It will take place at the NXT Arena on the campus of Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida.
