Finn Balor defeated Adam Cole this week to win the vacant NXT title.

Balor and Cole faced-off in the opening match of this week’s show to determine a new champion.

As you’ll recall, this match was made by William Regal last week after the two wrestlers tied in falls during the four-way Iron Man match.

After a back and forth encounter tonight that saw both wrestlers kick out of each other’s finishers, Balor hit a version of 1916 on Cole from the top rope to get the pinfall victory.

This is Balor’s second NXT title reign. He last won the belt in 2015 and held it for 292 days.

Watch his title win tonight in the video below.
