Tye Dillinger def. Eric Young by Disqualification (No. 1 Contender’s Fatal 4-Way Qualifying Match)
ORLANDO, Fla. – The new No. 1 contender to NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura will be decided in a Fatal 4-Way Match next week, but first, a quartet of competitors had to win their way into this contest. The first of the four bouts to determine the Superstars in next week’s showdown saw Tye Dillinger battle SAnitY’s Eric Young.
Despite questions about Dillinger’s mental state following a series of hard-fought losses, The Perfect 10 looked impressive as he took the fight to Young. The bout was interrupted, however, as the crazed Nikki Cross jumped on the back of the Canadian Superstar, causing a disqualification. Dillinger managed to avoid an all-out attack from SAnitY, but ultimately was blindsided by the monstrous Big Damo. The rugged giant destroyed Dillinger as SAnitY watched from the ramp, again bringing questions about Damo’s motivation.
Although Dillinger was left laid out in the middle of the ring, the embattled Superstar advanced to next week’s Fatal 4-Way No. 1 Contender’s Match.
