Matt Riddle and Timothy Thatcher’s makeshift tag team imploded Wednesday night on NXT and it led to Imperium winning the tag team titles.
It all went down during the opening match tonight when Riddle and Thatcher faced-off against Fabian Aichner and Marcel Barthel.
During the closing moments of the match, Matt accidentally monkey-flipped Barthel into Timothy causing Thatcher to storm off angrily. “The Original Bro” did his best to fend off his opponents alone afterward, but his efforts failed and he ultimately lost the match.
The two wrestlers got into a backstage brawl after this when Riddle overheard Thatcher saying he was tired of his antics. This led to a match between the two being booked for later in the night.
Thatcher and Riddle then faced-off in a brutal main event that saw Matt pickup the win.
