The first man to be confirmed is none other than Kushida, who got back to winning ways with a victory over Austin Theory last night.
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, and Kushida has been named the first competitor to take part.
There will be five entrants in total and 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
