The NXT Championship will continue to be vacant for another week, as the sixty-minute Iron Man match between four competitors on this week’s show ended in a draw.

Adam Cole, Finn Balor, Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano faced-off in the main event tonight to determine who would become the new NXT champion.

As you’ll recall, the match was announced after Karrion Kross had to relinquish the belt.

All four competitors were still tied at one fall a piece as the final minute of the match began. Tomasso Ciampa then hit an Air Raid Crash on Johnny Gargano from the top rope, but Finn Balor followed it up with a Coup De Grace from the top rope on Ciampa and pinned him for another fall. 

To the surprise of Finn Balor though, Adam Cole hit him from behind with a Last Shot to get another pinfall as the match came to an end. Balor and Cole then argued in the ring over who was champion, causing William Regal to come out and announce that the two competitors would wrestle next week in a singles match to finally determine the new NXT champion.

Next week’s edition of NXT will once again take place on Tuesday.
