– Former WWE Superstar and current NXT broadcaster Wade Barrett (aka Stu Bennett) took to Twitter last night to comment on last night’s Gauntlet Eliminator match, which was won by Kyle O’Reilly. O’Reilly will now challenge Finn Balor for the NXT World title at next month’s NXT TakeOver.
Based on Barrett’s tweet, he indicated that he will be back to call the action at next month’s event. Barrett did not call the action on last night’s show. Instead, it was Tom Phillips and Beth Phoenix. Wade Barrett wrote, “What a match for my first #NXTTakeOver! Congrats to @KORcombat. Thats how to seize the moment #WWENXT @WWENXT”
NXT TakeOver is scheduled for October 4. It will stream live on the WWE Network.
