Triple H announced during tonight's WWE NXT TV tapings that a battle royal will take place on next week's NXT TV show to crown a new #1 Contender to Adrian Neville's NXT Title. The participants are Xavier Woods, Brodus Clay, Baron Corbin, Curt Hawkins, Aiden English, Jason Jordan, Danny Burch, Oliver Grey, Marcus Louise, Sylvester Lefort, Big Cass, Camacho, Mason Ryan, Kalisto, El Local, Mojo Rawley, Sami Zayn, Yoshi Tatsu, Tyler Breeze, Bo Dallas and Tyson Kidd.
The battle royal came down to Kidd, Zayn and Breeze getting eliminated at the same time. Triple H then ordered a triple threat match which will take place on the 5/15 edition of NXT, and that match was won by Tyson Kidd. Kidd will receive his title shot at the May 29th Takeover event.
Bo Dallas lost a match to IC Champion Big E during tonight's WWE NXT TV taping, and the stipulation was that if Dallas lost, he had to leave NXT. This is likely the way creative is writing Dallas off NXT TV and he will likely debut on the main roster after the match airs, which will be towards the end of May.
