Matt Riddle gets Killian Dain face-to-face
A fight’s going to break out this week on NXT when Matt Riddle goes head-to-head with the newly returned Killian Dain. The Original Bro owes Dain a receipt for the carnage he wreaked weeks ago, when The Beast of Belfast ambushed Riddle from behind and smashed him through the entrance stage floor.
The path of destruction from Dain’s first tenure in NXT still smolders, but his decision to target Riddle is nonetheless a bold choice.
