William Regal has just announced a bombshell main event for the upcoming NXT Takeover event set to invade Toronto, Ontario next month during SummerSlam weekend.
After this week’s episode of WWE NXT television ended in yet another wild brawl between champion Adam Cole and former champion Johnny Gargano, Regal has come up with a stipulation to put an end to this chaotic and dangerous rivalry once and for.
Much like their incredible performance at NXT Takeover: Chicago the two will once again compete in a Two Out of Three Falls match with the NXT Championship hanging in the balance – but there’s one major twist this time around, and it’s something that back in the day we used to call the Three Stages of Hell!
For those unfamiliar with the concept, Johnny Gargano will pick the stipulation for the first fall of the main event championship matchup. Cole will then pick the stipulation for the second fall, theoretically giving both Superstars a distinct, yet fair advantage. If necessary, William Regal himself will decide the third and final stipulation in order to ensure that we have a clear and decisive winner and champion.
NXT Takeover: Toronto takes place at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on Saturday, August 10th and will also see Shayna Baszler defend her NXT Women’s Championship against Mia Yim.
