Ridge Holland def. Trey Baxter (Pre-Show Match)
Trey Baxter called out Ridge Holland on Twitter ahead of NXT TakeOver 36, but may have come to regret that decision, as the Yorkshire bruiser manhandled him to start the night’s action.
Baxter tried to catch Holland off-guard with a dropkick at the bell, but that barely dazed the menacing Brit. Holland caught the speedy Baxter and battered and bruised him, before planting the high-flyer into the canvas with Northern Grit to get the three-count.
After the bell, Holland grabbed the microphone to warn Timothy Thatcher that this demolition was a preview of what will happen when they collide this Tuesday on NXT.
