NXT's Matt Riddle Makes Killian Dain Tap; Will Challenge Adam Cole For NXT Championship

It's time for a new episode of NXT, and one of the most anticipated matches on the card tonight is the Street Fight rematch between Matt Riddle and Killian Dain. You might recall what happened during last week's Street Fight match between these two, but if you don't it ended up spilling all over the arena and becoming much more than anyone bargained for. During the match Riddle and Dain took the fight outside of the ring and backstage, and it ended up becoming a full-on brawl that involved most of the locker room. Now it's time for the rematch, which will crown a challenger to Adam Cole's NXT Championship, and we can finally say that challenger is going to be Matt Riddle.

The two traded hard-hitting blows early and Dain managed to toss Riddle out of the ring at one point, but Riddle quickly rebounded. Both would get their shots in, but at one point Riddle was putting on a show, with sentons and an Alabama Slam that had him lifting the much larger Dain to an impressive degree.

Eventually, the chairs came out, with Dain nailing Riddle a few times before Riddle came back with a series of kicks as they made their way along the outskirts of the ring.
