Gunter thinks LA Knight is an insult to his profession and the former WALTER will get a chance to shut him up at NXT Stand & Deliver. Gunther took it to Duke Hudson on tonight’s NXT 2.0 and after he stood victorious post-chest chop fest, he prompted Knight to come out.
The two confronted one another until LA Knight was sick of Gunther’s insult and challenged him to a fight one week from Saturday at Stand & Deliver.
Tonight’s NXT 2.0 episode also saw Grayson Waller defeat A-Kid to qualify, while Solo Sikoa defeated Roderick Strong to qualify. Santos Escobar defeated Cameron Grimes on last week’s show to earn his spot in the match.
After tonight’s qualifiers, NXT North American Champion Carmelo Hayes came out to announce a Triple Threat for next week’s go-home episode, which will determine the final spot for the Ladder Match. The Triple Threat will feature the three losers from the previous qualifiers – Grimes, Strong and A-Kid.
NXT Stand & Deliver will take place on Saturday, April 2 from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. The event will air live on Peacock and the WWE Network, with a special start time of 1pm ET due to WrestleMania 38 Night One kicking off just a few hours later. The NXT event is reportedly scheduled to run for 2.5 – 3 hours.
