Last week’s episode of NXT saw a ton of superstars compete in a Battle Royal to determine a Gauntlet Eliminator that took place tonight. With six superstars facing off in the Eliminator tonight, it was Bronson Reed who walked out as the winner, and will face off against Johnny Gargano tomorrow night.
In a huge match that saw Bronson Reed, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott, Leon Ruff, Cameron Grimes, Dexter Lumis, and LA Knight take each other on in the ring, the Gauntlet Eliminator had it all. From the start, both Scott and Ruff were going at it in a major way, and once every other superstar got in the ring, things continued to get intense.
However, towards the end of the match, things were down to just Reed and Scott in a one-on-one. After trading blows for a bit, Reed survived a House Call from Swerve before hitting the Dead Eye on Scott to incapacitate him. Afterwards, Reed landed a Tsunami on Scott for the win, and will now move to the second night of TakeOver: Stand & Deliver, to face off against Johnny Gargano for the NXT North American Championship.
