Matt Riddle and Timothy Thatcher are stepping into the cage, and Kurt Angle will be joining them. The WWE Hall of Famer and Olympic Gold Medalist will serve as special guest referee for The Original Bro’s Cage Fight against Thatcher this Wednesday night on NXT.

Thatcher debuted as Riddle’s partner in place of Pete Dunne, who was unable to appear to defend the NXT Tag Team Championship. Riddle & Thatcher seemed to catch lightning in a bottle, fending off The Undisputed ERA’s Bobby Fish & Roderick Strong to retain the titles.

But The Newly-Bros imploded in less than a month and lost the titles to Imperium, with Riddle’s easy-going demeanor apparently driving Thatcher mad. The Original Bro craftily rolled up Thatcher two weeks ago to win their first bout against each other, though the tension was far from settled.

Thatcher called for a match that could only be won by knockout or tap-out. Riddle one-upped him, proposing that they meet inside a cage. But what kind of a cage exactly does Riddle — who is familiar with fighting inside chain link as a former UFC welterweight — have in mind? And what sort of impact might Angle have?

Interesting. They are definitely going for a big fight feel. It just seems rushed.

Wow, that's pretty cool. Why not do it at TakeOver then? Seems like a waste having it on a throwaway episode. Also, I thought Kurt Angle was released?

I wonder if they're rushing this feud to get Riddle on Raw or Smackdown.

Yeah I’m shocked reading this that it’s not on a Takeover. Be interesting to see how it does.
