WWE’s moving Shawn Michaels out of the production booth and putting him in front of the cameras next Wednesday night (Sept. 30). Old HBShizzle will host a face-off between NXT champion Finn Bálor and the man who will challenge him on Oct. 4’s TakeOver, Kyle O’Reilly.

O’Reilly won the right to face Bálor in last Wednesday’s Gauntlet Eliminator, which doesn’t give them a ton of time to build this match. But Finn just beat Kyle’s Undisputed ERA teammate Adam Cole for the belt, and NXT’s been leaning into the story of this being a long overdue opportunity for KOR just shortly after turning him face – so Michaels will have plenty to work with. Plus, O’Reilly/Bálor is a cracker jack* of a bout that basically sells itself, so…
This sitdown joins Shotzi Blackheart vs. Dakota Kai on the Sept. 30 go home. A mixed tag between the people on either side of two other TakeOver title bouts – Candice LeRae & Johnny Gargano against Women’s champ Io Shirai & North American champ Damian Priest – is also on Wednesday’s card.
Excited for Michaels to talk to a couple of his guys? Will he held NXT pop a number in the Wednesday Night War?
