As we reported last week here on eWn, WWE has confirmed that Matt Riddle will face Killian Dain in a Street Fight for the NXT live TV debut on September 18th. According to WWE.com, the match will not take place during the first hour of the show on the USA Network. The match will instead be featured on the second hour on the WWE Network.

Matt Riddle and Killian Dain to face off in a Street Fight on the second hour of NXT’s live premiere
After a summer of ruthless sneak attacks and chaotic brawls, Matt Riddle and Killian Dain are now set to clash in a lawless Street Fight this Wednesday on the first live, two-hour edition of NXT.
Since their rivalry began, the NXT Universe has witnessed The Original Bro and The Northern Ireland Nightmare crash through the entrance stage, render tables to toothpicks and brutalize each other with steel stairs. Dain won their only official one-on-one match last month by viciously targeting Riddle’s already-injured ribs, but despite the devastating beating, Riddle wanted more of The Beast of Belfast after the bell. Their melee continued outside the arena after NXT went off the air, only ending when Dain crushed Riddle beneath a steel ladder.
With it now abundantly clear that a standard match cannot contain the mayhem, the sports-entertainment world is in for an epic free-for-all when Riddle and Dain collide in a Street Fight in which disqualifications and count-outs will not apply. Which Superstar will back up his claim of being the toughest man in NXT when the rules are thrown out the window?
Don’t miss this seismic brawl when NXT goes live this Wednesday! The first hour of NXT will air on USA Network at 8/7 C, and then the second hour — featuring Riddle vs. Dain — will stream live on the award-winning WWE Network starting at 9/8 CT.
