Watch Finn Bálor & Samoa Joe's show-closing brawl from Portland, and learn what it means for June's NXT TakeOver

You can see a longer version of it in our house show report here, but WWE has released a shortened YouTube version of the big brawl that ended NXT's Portland house show - and their tour of the Pacific Northwest - that you can see above.

The incident occurred when Samoa Joe retained his NXT title by rolling up Finn Bálor with the help of a fistful of tights. Finn understandably thought that was bullcrap, so he attacked the champ after the bell. General Manager William Regal brought out the entire locker room (well, the guys, anyway) to settle things down, and was visibly upset with both Joe and Bálor as the show ended.

Now, we've learned that Regal will address the situation on Tuesday. And it sounds like he's adding a stipulation to Finn & Joe's already announced title match at the June 8 TakeOver live show in Florida:

Nifty way to add layers to a rematch many fans expressed disinterest in when it was officially announced last Wednesday, once again emphasize that house shows matter in NXT continuity and drive attention to that Facebook thing advertisers seem to love these days.

We'll have the General Manager's announcement on Tuesday.

In the meantime, what do you think it will be? Cage match? Loser leaves town?
