Joe Coffey And Butch Meet In NXT Global Heritage Invitational Final
The NXT Global Heritage Invitational Tournament comes to an end on this week’s edition of NXT. The final match-up will see Joe Coffey and Butch meet for a chance to challenge Noam Dar for his NXT Heritage Cup. It can be expected that, as per usual, Dar and the rest of Meta-Four will be focused on this match-up in close proximity. This Scottish-English battle will be an exciting one for wrestling fans.
Joe Coffey is yet to claim his first piece of WWE gold, and this tournament provides the opportunity for him to finally call himself a champion. Butch has been champion before, even being the second-ever WWE UK Champion and holding that title for 685 days. Now, the two cross paths as they fight for an opportunity to claim the NXT Heritage Cup.
Eddy Thorpe And Dijak Clash In Strap Match
Eddy Thorpe and Dijak have a storied history that has been punctuated with match-ups throughout their time on NXT. The two have had a consistent rivalry, seemingly struggling to move past each other. They look to end their feud with a sense of finality in a strap match. The two will be attached to each other with nowhere to run. This match’s outcome could be crucial as a great showing could push one into the title scene – perhaps the North American championship title picture. Regardless, Thorpe and Dijak will look to make a statement with this match.
