WWE NXT Live Results: Finn Balor to Explain His Actions Against Johnny Gargano

After an eventful episode of NXT last week, the WWE Universe will want to catch what the black and gold brand has tonight.

Following his shocking heel turn, Finn Balor returns to Full Sail University to explain his actions. After taking out Mr. NXT himself, Johnny Gargano, what will the former NXT and Universal Champion have to say? And will his actions come with no ramifications?

Cameron Grimes disrespected Tyler Bate who was in attendance last week, which resulted in a punch from the NXT UK standout. This week, both men meet in the ring as they position to move up the ladder of NXT.

Io Shirai and Candice LeRae renew their rivalry this week. Shirai tried to insert herself in the Rhea Ripley and Bianca Belair match, but LeRae came out to even the odds. With their pasts shaping their future, who will come out on top as every woman in NXT looks to prove they deserve a shot at Shayna Baszler.

And finally, Keith Lee teams with Matt Riddle to take on Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly. After Lee lost to Roderick Strong last week, the Undisputed Era took it upon themselves to beat down the "Limitless" one. Now, Lee looks for revenge and he brings Riddle who has been a thorn in the UE's side in the past.
