Matt Riddle to challenge NXT Champion Adam Cole tonight on USA Network
After defeating Killian Dain in a brutal Street Fight, Matt Riddle earned the right to challenge NXT Champion Adam Cole tonight 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?
