Friday night’s WWE NXT Live Event witnessed a shocking change of plans for one of the matches on the show. Chad Lail (formerly Gunner in TNA), a heel on the yellow-and-black brand, wrestled Kassius Ohno in a singles bout, but for some reason, the live audience began “Chad, Chad, Chad” chants during the matchup. Instead of going against the crowd and sticking with the originally planned finish to the match, the management decided to align with the fans and the match ended in Lail picking up the victory. On Sunday’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed the issue.

“In the middle of the match, all of a sudden, it just flips and Ohno starts playing the heel and loses. They actually listened to the crowd and changed everything on the fly. Ohno would have won [because] Ohno always beats Lail [at the house shows] and he lost. They changed the finish just so the crowd would be real happy.”

The upcoming house shows will reveal whether Lail’s victory was a one-time occurrence or if it’s a recurring issue provided fans don’t react the way the management expects to. It is worth noting that WWE always conducts experiments at house shows, with the fans expecting the company to try a Roman Reigns heel turn at upcoming live events.
