Matt Riddle Added To Tonight’s NXT Episode For ‘First-Ever Encounter’

Matt Riddle has a marquee match setup for tonight’s episode of NXT. He’ll face off against another hot star in Cameron Grimes, who has been knocking out opponents in mere seconds. The former Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter will look to stop Grimes’ momentum in order to work his way back to another title shot.

Check out the official announcement below courtesy of

Riddle will challenge Grimes tonight in their first-ever encounter on NXT TV.

The Original Bro claimed victory last week in a tough tussle with Bronson Reed, bouncing back in impressive fashion after nearly dethroning Adam Cole as NXT Champion earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Grimes has wasted little time making his presence felt since arriving on the black-and-gold brand. With his lone defeat a loss in the finals of the NXT Breakout Tournament, The Technical Savage has racked up wins left and right — and some in the blink of an eye thanks to his patented leaping double stomp.

Let us know who you think will win in the comments below!
