Timothy Thatcher is the undisputed master of the FIGHT PIT. He proved it once again by defeating Tommaso Ciampa in the main event of last night’s (Jan. 20) episode of NXT.
Afterwards, there was a very interesting online exclusive video where Ciampa confronted Thatcher on his way out of the building and asked why he didn’t break his leg. It led to an acknowledgment of respect, and then Ciampa saying he heard there’s a vacancy in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.
That vacancy presumably exists after what Karrion Kross did to Ashante Adonis and Desmond Troy last night. That pair was originally scheduled for a first round Dusty Classic match against Tony Nese and Ariya Daivari.
Well, it looks like William Regal has decided to officially replace Adonis & Troy with the vaunted FIGHT PIT duo:
I definitely feel bad for the poor saps who stand in the way of Ciampa and Thatcher.
Do we now have new favorites to go all the way in the Dusty Classic?
