Dragunov has seemingly struggled to control his emotions ever since narrowly coming up short in a harrowing NXT Championship Match against WALTER. While Dragunov has continued to win matches, he often becomes blind with rage and subsequently brutalizes his opponents.
Gradwell has picked up on this trend, as well, and the antagonistic Superstar has seized every opportunity to provoke the unhinged Dragunov, particularly during The Mad Russian’s one-on-one clash with Tyson T-Bone, which saw Gradwell repeatedly belittle his newfound rival from ringside.
What will happen now that the two brawlers are finally set to collide?
