A matchup between wrestlers vying for the attention of Ted DiBiase is set for NXT TakeOver: In Your House.

Cameron Grimes vs. LA Knight will take place at TakeOver: In Your House on Sunday, June 13. The match was announced after Grimes caused LA Knight to lose to Jake Atlas on NXT tonight.

Grimes and DiBiase had been feuding leading into them meeting for a "Million Dollar Face-Off" on NXT last week. DiBiase told Grimes that he sees a little bit of himself when he looks at Grimes. DiBiase said he was there because he's looking for the one individual who can continue his Million Dollar legacy. DiBiase said Grimes has what it takes in the ring, but he's lost his focus since becoming rich.

Knight then interrupted the Million Dollar Face-Off and said he can take the Million Dollar legacy to new levels. Grimes threatened Knight, but the segment ended with Knight laying Grimes out.

DiBiase watched on as Knight faced Atlas on tonight's NXT. Grimes made his way out during the match and spoke with DiBiase. Grimes said the Million Dollar legacy should belong with him. When Knight was on the top rope, he turned his attention to Grimes and got distracted. The distraction led to Knight getting crotched on the top rope and Atlas hitting his cartwheel DDT to get the win.

DiBiase shook his head in disapproval at Knight before walking off. When he was interviewed backstage, DiBiase was asked who is truly deserving of carrying on the Million Dollar legacy. DiBiase said Knight dropped the ball tonight but Grimes showed that it takes both brains and brawn.

Atlas also picked up a win on NXT two weeks ago, defeating Grimes after Grimes was distracted by DiBiase.

Here's the updated card for TakeOver: In Your House:

  • NXT Champion Karrion Kross defends against Kyle O'Reilly, Pete Dunne, Johnny Gargano, and Adam Cole in a fatal five-way match'
