Video: Reaction to Finn Bálor becoming the first man to pin Kevin Owens on WWE NXT

On the July 1 episode of NXT, Finn Bálor became the first man to pin champion Kevin Owens on the show - and only the second person, along with John Cena, to beat KO since he debuted in WWE.

That it was part of a tag team match where either the Irishman's partner Samoa Joe or Owens' teammate Rhyno could have taken the pin and not made it a talking point heading into their one-on-one match has lead to all kinds of speculation from fans, especially as it aired just days away from that showdown for the NXT title in Tokyo, Japan this Saturday. has released a couple of short promos from each man reacting to the match, that you can watch above. Factor these into your predictions and fantasy booking for Beast in the East - particularly Finn saying he's bringing the Bálor Club with him one night after the newest documentary video on his road to WWE showed him with Karl Anderson and other members of his New Japan Bullet Club stable.

And, of course, the champ squeezing more character development and storytelling into a glance and five words than most Superstars do in twenty minutes.

Who do you got on Saturday, Cagesiders?
