NXT Iron Man Match Ends With Controversy

NXT Iron Man Match Ends With Controversy
This week’s Super Tuesday episode of NXT on the USA Network was headlined by a huge 60-Minute Iron Man Match between Adam Cole, Johnny Gargano, Finn Balor and Tommaso Ciampa.

The match was for the vacated NXT Title which Karrion Kross was forced to give up last week due to injury.

As we spoiled earlier, unfortunately fans will have to wait until next week to find out who will be the new champion because there was no champion crowned.

Most of the match had each competitor with 1 pin until Balor scored his second pin in the last few seconds after hitting a Coup de Grace on Ciampa. Cole immediately ran in and scored a pin on Balor by hitting the Last Shot. The bell then ran with Cole and Balor tied at 2 pins each.

Adam Cole and Balor argued until NXT General Manager William Regal ran down and jumped in between them. Regal announced that next week's NXT Super Tuesday Part 2 episode will feature a Sudden Death Battle with Balor vs. Cole, one fight to the finish, and the winner will be declared the new NXT Champion.

Balor and Cole scored 2 pinfalls in the match so, as a result of the tie, they will wrestle next week to determine the new champion.
