Samoa Joe vs. Finn Bálor, Austin Aries vs. Baron Corbin official for TakeOver: Dallas

WWE NXT on Twitter

It's "announce matches for WrestleMania week" day around the independent wrestling world, and WWE's in-house indy is no exception as a one-match episode of NXT managed to deliver two bouts for the TakeOver: Dallas card which will take place Friday, April 1 at Dallas' Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.

To kick off the Mar. 9 edition, General Manager William Regal told the Full Sail faithful that he wanted to suspend Baron Corbin for attacking Austin Aries during his debut last week, but Aries talked him out of it. That's because A-Double wants to take care of the issue himself, so he'll get the Lone Wolf one-on-one in Dallas.

The other decision came as a result of the two-out-of-three falls match which took up the remainder of the episode. Samoa Joe defeated Sami Zayn, finally settling the issue which has been at the center of the men's division's stories all year long - who will challenge Finn Bálor for the NXT title.

After a Triple Threat, a one-on-one affair and tonight forty-minute plus match, the answer is the same man who challenged him for the belt in London.

While the whole card is available thanks to spoilers from the remainder of the episodes taped on Jan. 27 (and in this post right here), the official rundown for TakeOver: Dallas as it stands now is:

Finn Bálor (c) vs. Samoa Joe for the NXT championship
Austin Aries vs. Baron Corbin
Shinsuke Nakamura debuts
