Matt Riddle to challenge NXT Champion Adam Cole
After defeating Killian Dain in a brutal Street Fight, Matt Riddle earned the right to challenge NXT Champion Adam Cole this Wednesday on WWE NXT.
The Original Bro barely had any time to recover from his grueling victory over The Beast of Belfast on the Sept. 25 episode of NXT when Cole emerged to get in his new challenger’s face, letting Riddle know that he was not on the NXT Champion’s level. Unfortunately for Cole, that may not be the case, as he found out firsthand when Riddle locked on a Fujiwara Armbar, forcing Cole to tap out repeatedly until the rest of The Undisputed ERA arrived.
Cole was listed on NXT’s injury report as questionable coming out of last Wednesday’s incident with The Original Bro, with a suspected fracture in his right arm. However, the NXT Champion was confident as ever in a video posted to his Twitter account on Sunday, though it should be noted that Cole was sporting a brace on his injured arm.
Cole and his running buddies have been bragging about dripping with gold as of late. Will Matt Riddle put an end to their prophecy?
Can Candice LeRae dethrone Shayna Baszler?
Candice LeRae defeated four other Superstars in a thrilling Fatal 5-Way Match two weeks ago to earn the right to challenge NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler on this week’s edition of NXT.
The champion, who has been dominant since winning the title last October, is extremely confident heading into her latest defense. LeRae, however, is not afraid of The Submission Magician, and is out to bring Baszler’s reign to an end. Can Tenacious C claim the NXT Women’s Title, or will Baszler continue to reign supreme?
