There is a new #1 contender to the WWE NXT Title held by Adam Cole and that’s Matt Riddle.
During Wednesday’s episode of NXT, WWE held a second Street Fight between Riddle Killian Dain. This comes after their original Street Fight last week went to a no contest.
WWE NXT William Regal added some big stakes to this match as it was announced that this contest will determine who will be next in line for a championship match.
As seen on the show, Riddle ended up winning it. As a result, Riddle has earned the right to challenge Cole for the WWE NXT Title on next week’s episode of NXT.
WWE is loading up the show as two previous title matches have been announced that includes NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler vs. Candice LeRae and The Undisputed Era defending the NXT Tag Team Titles against The Street Profits.
The obvious reason for booking a title match on this NXT episode is due to the hope of increasing ratings as they will be in for a big fight.
NXT will be going head-to-head with AEW Dynamite that will air at the same time on TNT. All Elite Wrestling has loaded up the show as well.
