Dexter Lumis faces Roderick Strong in NXT’s first-ever Strap Match
Their psychological warfare will escalate to in-ring brutality in the black-and-gold brand’s first-ever Strap Match at The Great American Bash.
After stalking The Undisputed ERA for weeks, the enigmatic Lumis escalated his pursuits during Adam Cole’s NXT Title defense against The Velveteen Dream in a Backlot Brawl at NXT TakeOver: In Your House, stuffing Strong and Bobby Fish in his trunk and driving off.
Strong was especially traumatized by the incident, and Lumis’ interest in him has only increased since. After weeks of therapy facilitated by The Undisputed ERA, Strong seemed ready to face his fears — until he actually stepped in the ring with NXT’s “Tortured Artist,” then fled immediately.
With nowhere to go for Strong as the two foes are bound together by a strap, what horrors will Lumis have in store?
