Finn Bálor v Kevin Owens set for NXT Takeover: Brooklyn

WWE has announced the main event for NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn on Saturday 22 August 2015.

Newly crowned NXT Champion Finn Bálor will defend his title against former champion Kevin Owens at the Barclays Center as part of a special that will be broadcast live on the WWE Network.

The rematch was announced by NXT General Manager William Regal at San Diego Comic-Con International, where both Bálor and Owens took part in a packed panel presented by Mattel, featuring the unveiling of both Superstars’ first WWE action figures.

Since the Tokyo throwdown, Owens has turned his attention to capturing John Cena’s United States Championship, but don’t think for a moment that the bruiser won’t relish the opportunity to reclaim the title that propelled him to Superstardom and embarrass Bálor in the process.
