Finn Balor vs Gargano Announced for NXT TakeOver: Portland
NXT has confirmed the match between Finn Balor and Johnny Gargano is now confirmed for NXT TakeOver: Portland 2020 PPV on 16 February 2020.
The feud between Balor and Gargano started when Balor turned heel on Gargano by attacking him on an NXT episode back in October. Gargano was written off from NXT with Balor hitting him with a 1916 DDT on the steel ramp.
Balor faced Matt Riddle at NXT TakeOver: WarGames 2019 before becoming the #1 contender for NXT Championship. During his title match against Adam Cole, Gargano returned and cost him the match. The rivalry continued ever since.
This week at NXT, Johnny Gargano came out and cut a promo on Balor, demanding the match against him. Balor responded by offering a match at NXT TakeOver: Portland 2020. Only two matches are announced for the show, with Rhea Ripley facing Bianca Beliar being the other one.
