Last week’s centerpiece on NXT Super Tuesday saw a 60-minute Iron Man Fatal 4-Way match for the uninhabited NXTChampionship Former NXT Champions Adam Cole, Finn Balor, Johnny Gargano as well as Tommaso Ciampa all contested to crown a brand-new champ.
However, the match finished in conflict as after 60 mins, the match finished in a connection in between Balor as well asCole This led to NXT General Manager William Regal revealing that the pair will certainly go one-on- one to establish a brand-new NXT Champion throughout NXT Super Tuesday II today.
After seeing the Iron Man match for an hr, lots of fans were essential of of the finish to the match finishing in a connection in between Balor as well asCole During a recent meeting with ComicBook.com, The leader of The Undisputed Era confessed that he recognizes why some of the NXT Universe were disturbed with the outcome:
“For me personally, I’ve always been that really annoying person that looks at everything glass half-full always. I’m so that person that finds just the good in everything. As far as a television show goes, it would be the equivalent to a cliffhanger. We give you a cliffhanger on last week’s episode, and then this week you’re going to get the finale. So in that sense, because wrestling at the end of the day is a television show, it makes perfect sense to me. However, I do understand that some people were upset. I understand that some people want to see a definitive end to a match like that, and it makes total sense. But that’s actually kind of, as weird as it sounds, what I love so much about pro wrestling. You’ll have one match that will happen with a certain result, and like you said, half the people will go ‘that was the greatest thing I’ve ever seen. They couldn’t have ended that any better. This was perfect’. Then you’ve got another group of people who were so upset and so angry, and think it’s the dumbest thing in the world. The beautiful thing is that both people aren’t wrong, and both people are right, and you can think whatever you want to think.”
Telling the story of the NXT Championship
Despite some participants of the NXT Universe being disturbed with the Iron Man match last week finishing as a connection, Adam Cole discussed that given that NXT is a tv show, it provides more time to a inform a longer story.
In this instance they are informing the story of the NXT Championship, on top of that to the story of Cole as well as Finn Balor:
“That’s why I love television shows more than movies, because you have longer to tell the story that you want to tell. So NXT at the end of the day is a TV show, and we’re just telling the story of the NXT Championship, and the Adam Cole Finn Balor story a little bit longer. Not to keep rambling, but when I was NXT Champion, the constant comparison when I was regarded as the greatest NXT Champion of all time, some people would jump in and say, ‘No, Finn Balor is.’ Then people who said Finn Balor, other people would jump in and say I was. There has been this overarching story for quite some time about who is the greatest NXT Champion of all time. So the four cornerstones of NXT go into the 60 minute Iron Man match. Two guys tie, the people that are compared to the most, as far as who is the greatest NXT Champion, now they have a sudden death one-on-one match this Tuesday. I think it’s beautiful. I love it.”
