Shane Thorne battles Breakout Tournament alum Joaquin Wilde

Joaquin Wilde vs. Shane Thorne

For weeks, Shane Thorne has let everyone within earshot know exactly how he feels about the NXT Breakout Tournament. Arguing that he’s better and more deserving of an opportunity than any of the NXT rookies invited to take part in the event, the self-described “Black Swan” has repeatedly lashed out at tournament competitors. Thorne even stormed the announce desk on the July 24 edition of NXT to unleash a tirade about the tournament.

This week on NXT, the audacious Aussie will have a chance to back up his words when he battles tournament alum Joaquin Wilde, the world-traveled daredevil that Angel Garza eliminated in the first round. Thorne is out to prove a point, but so is Wilde as he looks to rebound after his impressive, if unsuccessful, NXT TV debut.
