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 tonight on USA Network at 7CT/8ET.
