It won’t be quite as loaded up as this week’s TakeOver-like edition, but WWE did announce a title match and intriguing bout that should advance a big angle for the May 13 show.
After Imperium’s Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel crashed Matt Riddle & Timothy Thatcher’s Newly-Bros Game last Wednesday, both teams got some mic time on the 6th. WALTER’s boys issued a challenge for Riddle & Thatcher’s NXT Tag Team championship. Stallion Matt & Stallion Timothy were happy to accept. General Manager William Regal made it official.
Straight from the office of GM @RealKingRegal, @SuperKingofBros & #TimothyThatcher will defend the #WWENXT #TagTeamTitles against @FabianAichner & @Marcel_B_WWE NEXT WEEK on @WWENXT! pic.twitter.com/dxOogEB2qx— WWE NXT (@WWENXT) May 7, 2020
Elsewhere, a pissed off Finn Bálor issued a warning to whoever attacked him two weeks back.
Which for some reason made Cameron Grimes think it would be a good idea to taunt the Prince. He must have been feeling himself after making short work ofDenzel Dejournette. Grimes probably doesn’t feel as good after getting stomped in the chest and sling-bladed by Finn. He’ll probably feel even less good after this match next Wednesday.
Unless that snake Bálor’s threatening makes another move.
We’ll probably also get more Cruiserweight Title Tournament action, and whatever other plot threads Triple H & company choose to pick up. Between North American champ Keith Lee, Dexter Lumis stalking Undisputed ERA, the recently arrived Doomsday duo of Karrion Kross & Scarlett, Io Shirai & Rhea Ripley gunning for Charlotte Flair, and power couple Johnny Gargano & Candice LeRae rising up the ranks - they’ve got plenty to choose from.
