Matt Riddle and Timothy Thatcher faced off in the NXT fight pit last night.
The match was refereed by Kurt Angle and could only be won by knockout or submission. With a call-up to SmackDown looking imminent for Riddle, Thatcher got the win when Riddle passed out in a choke.
It was announced that Velveteen Dream will challenge for Adam Cole's NXT Championship at TakeOver: In Your House on Sunday, June 7. if Cole wins, Dream can't challenge for the title again as long as Cole is champion.
NXT Women's Champion Charlotte Flair teamed up with Chelsea Green against Charlotte's TakeOver challengers Rhea Ripley & Io Shirai last night. The finish was Charlotte rolling up Shirai while using the ropes for leverage.
The build also continued for title matches between NXT North American Champion Keith Lee and Johnny Gargano and NXT Tag Team Champions Imperium and Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch.
