Matt Riddle and Pete Dunne are the Bruiserweights, but then the COVID-19 pandemic broke up the team. Dunne was unable to make it to the United States so Timothy Thatcher was put in his place. That union imploded tonight.
Riddle and Thatcher had a miscommunication during WWE NXT this week. This came at a terrible time as they were defending the WWE NXT Tag Team Titles against Imperium.
It didn’t take long for Imperium to finish off Matt Riddle after he was left all by himself. Now Imperium are the WWE NXT Tag Team Champions to start off the night for NXT.
