Two more competitors for the first ever ‘Gauntlet Eliminator’ match coming up on this week’s episode of WWE NXT have now been revealed.
Cameron Grimes and Kyle O’Reilly join the previously announced Kushida to make up three fifths of the lineup. The match will determine who challenges Finn Balor for the NXT Title at TakeOver on October 4.
Who will get the first chance to challenge The Prince? The answer to that question will be decided in the first-ever Gauntlet Eliminator Match next Wednesday in the Takeoff to TakeOver on NXT.
Kushida has been joined by Cameron Grimes as the first two competitors announced.
The addition of O’Reilly was then later confirmed on Twitter but WWE’s website has yet to update its page with that.
The rules for the match are as follows:
- Two men will start in the ring
- Every four minutes, another competitor will enter
- The only way to be eliminated is via pinfall or submission
- The last man standing will be named the #1 contender
