WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle has commented on his upcoming appearance on this Wednesday’s episode of NXT on the USA Network.
As announced yesterday, Angle will be the special guest referee for a ‘cage fight’ between Matt Riddle and Timothy Thatcher, who lost the NXT Tag Team Championship to Imperium two weeks ago after Thatcher walked out on Riddle.
In a video on Twitter, Angle said:
“Two days ago I was contacted by my old friend, GM of NXT, William Regal. He came up with an innovative way to settle a score between Matt Riddle and Timothy Thatcher. It’s a cage fight. Not a cage match, a cage fight. And there are only two ways to win – knockout, or tapout. So this Wednesday night yours truly, Kurt Angle, will be the referee for this fight. Thatcher vs Riddle. Cage fight. Oh it’s true, it’s damn true.”
Also announced for NXT this coming week is a tag match that will pit Charlotte Flair and a mystery tag partner up against both of Flair’s TakeOver challengers in the three-way, Rhea Ripley and Io Shirai.
As always, we’ll have live coverage of both NXT and AEW Dynamite on the site Wednesday night.
