Final entrant announced for NXT’s Gauntlet Eliminator match

By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

The following wrestlers have been announced for Wednesday’s Gauntlet Eliminator match that will determine the No. 1 contender to the NXT Championship.


-Cameron Grimes

-Kyle O’Reilly

-Timothy Thatcher

-Bronson Reed

Powell’s POV: The winner of the five-man match will challenge Finn Balor for the NXT Championship at the NXT Takeover event on October 4. Reed was named the final entrant on Monday. The rules of the Gauntlet Eliminator are that two men will start, and another man will ever every four minutes. The only way to be eliminated is via pinfall or submission. The last man standing becomes the new No. 1 contender. Join John Moore for his weekly NXT live review as the show airs Wednesday on USA Network at 7CT/8ET. John’s NXT audio reviews are available for Dot Net Members on Thursday.

  1. After the 4-way iron man match, if even this match ends up without a clean finish we will know for sure that NXT is deliberately trolling its fans.
