Shawn Michaels returns on NXT

WWE announced that Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels will be on this Wednesday’s WWE NXT to host a face-to-face with NXT Champion Finn Bálor and Kyle O’Reilly.

Bálor and O’Reilly will meet on October 4 at NXT TakeOver 31 with the NXT Championship on the line. This will be O’Reilly’s first opportunity for the title. O’Reilly won the NXT Gauntlet Eliminator this past Wednesday on NXT to become the #1 Contender.

Finn Bálor and Kyle O’Reilly set for face-to-face hosted by Shawn Michaels

Finn Bálor and Kyle O’Reilly will go face to face just four days before their NXT Title showdown, and they’ll be joined by a WWE Hall of Famer.

Shawn Michaels will host a face-to-face meeting between the NXT Champion and his next challenger Wednesday night ahead of their match on Sunday, Oct. 4, at NXT TakeOver 31.

O’Reilly earned the right to take on Bálor after a gutsy performance in the first-ever Gauntlet Eliminator Match, going wire-to-wire and eliminating three competitors en route to the biggest victory of his career.
