Samoa Joe defeated Finn Balor at a NXT show in Lowell, Massachusetts this evening and became the new NXT Champion!
I’m not surprised this happened since the wrestling community knew his jump to the main roster was going to happen soon but I am surprised it wasn’t televised. Usually, WWE captures Championship matches on camera for the whole world to see. We’ve seen Balor and Joe go at it for the NXT Championship several times before and I would have liked to experience this title change as it happened. Like their previous matches, I bet it was a phenomenal match.
Congratulations, Samoa Joe!
