WWE are not messing around in trying to load up this week’s opening week of the NXT Great American Bash.
Yesterday it was announced that the show will be headlined by Io Sharai vs. Sasha Banks and today another match has been announced that will have a number of fans salivating.
The match will see Timothy Thatcher in action for the first time since defeating Matt Riddle in the NXT Fight Pit. His opponent will be fellow hard-hitter Oney Lorcan.
You are nothing, if not excitable, Mr. @ONEYLORCAN. I’m pleased to say you will NOT need to take any further action as I’m granting you a match against Timothy Thatcher THIS WEDNESDAY on #WWENXT. #NXTGAB https://t.co/V5xyh4sA1J— William Regal (@RealKingRegal) June 28, 2020
The match promises to be a beast of a contest and will sit on the undercard alongside a fatal four-way number one contenders match between Tegan Nox, Dakota Kai, Candice LeRae and Mia Yim.
Other matches to take place will see Roderick Strong face Dexter Lumis in a strap match and a handicap match that pits Rhea Ripley against Aliyah & Robert Stone.
The second part of the ‘Bash’ on Wednesday July 8th will be headlined by a huge ‘Winner Takes All’ match between NXT Champion Adam Cole and North American Champion Keith Lee.
