William Regal announces series of matches to determine NXT Champion Andrade “Cien” Almas’ TakeOver: Philadelphia challenger

NXT General Manager William Regal dropped a bombshell on the NXT Universe, announcing that because of Drew McIntyre’s injury, there will be a new challenger to NXT Champion Andrade “Cien” Almas.

Almas’ opponent will be decided based on a series of four singles matches, with the winners of those matches then competing in a Fatal 4-Way Match. The winner of that match will challenge Almas for the NXT Title at TakeOver: Philadelphia on Saturday, Jan. 27, at the Wells Fargo Center.

The four singles matches will be: Kassius Ohno vs. Velveteen Dream, Aleister Black vs. Adam Cole, Killian Dain vs. Trent Seven and Roderick Strong vs. Lars Sullivan. Seven earned his way into the series of matches after winning a Battle Royal during an NXT Live event in Lakeland, FL.

Who will go on to challenge Almas for the NXT Title at TakeOver: Philadelphia? Be sure to tune in to NXT every Wednesday night at 8/7 C on the award-winning WWE Network to see how all four singles matches and the Fatal 4-Way Match unfold!
