We’re less that two weeks from the next NXT TakeOver. We know that Io Shirai and Finn Bálor will defend their titles against opponents who will be determined on tonight’s edition of NXT, but there’s been nothing else booked for the Oct. 4 WWE Network special.
Until General Manager William Regal announced this earlier today...

There’s not a long rivalry between Damian Priest and Johnny Gargano, but the NXT Triple Crown winner was the other man on the ladder - and holding the belt - when Priest won the belt at last month’s TakeOver: XXX. They’ll have a couple episodes to rekindle hostilities before going one-on-one a week from this Sunday.
