After weeks of teasing, Timothy Thatcher and Tommaso Ciampa finally came to blows on this week’s episode of NXT.
Ciampa was at ringside during Thatcher’s weekly ‘Thatch-As-Thatch-Can’ sessions and interrupted as Thatcher continued to bully his students.
Thatcher and one of his students double-teamed Ciampa, and later said he will teach some respect to the former NXT Champion on Sunday.
The show also saw a ladder match to determine who will gain the advantage for the Women’s Ladder Match.
The final member of Team Shotzi was revealed to be NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai. There was interference from both sides, and Shotzi ended up winning the match against Raquel Gonzalez.
Shotzi, Shirai, Rhea Ripley, and Ember Moon will now have an advantage against the heel group of Dakota Kai, Gonzalez, Toni Storm, and Candice LeRae.
