Karrion Kross opened this week's NXT by announcing that he had suffered a separated shoulder while winning the NXT Championship at NXT TakeOver XXX, and as a result he needed to relinquish the title after holding it for just four days. Later in the show William Regal appeared in the ring and announced how a new champion would be crowned — Finn Balor, Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa and Adam Cole would all compete in a four-way on next week's episode of NXT (which has been moved from its usual spot to Tuesday night due to the NHL Playoffs).
But Regal wasn't finished, adding in a special stipulation — a 60-minute Iron Man Match. This marks the second Iron Man match to ever take place in NXT behind Bayley vs. Sasha Banks at NXT TakeOver: Respect back in October 2015. It will also be the first time a Fatal Four-Way has had that stipulation and will be the first hour-long Iron Man Match since John Cena defeated Randy Orton at Bragging Rights in October 2009.
What a HUGE announcement from @RealKingRegal!
NEXT TUESDAY NIGHT AT 8/7c on @USA_Network: @FinnBalor, @NXTCiampa, @AdamColePro and @JohnnyGargano will compete for the vacant #NXTTitle in a 4-Way 60-minute Iron Man Match! pic.twitter.com/h5U2Khjymp— WWE (@WWE) August 27, 2020
