The Fight Pit won’t be returning to NXT tonight as originally planned.

“After conferring with NXT’s medical staff, unfortunately, Timothy Thatcher suffered an injury training for tonight’s Fight Pit and will be unable to compete,” NXT General Manager William Regal announced. “With proper rehab, Mr. Thatcher should be back in action soon. Due to the brutal nature of tonight’s match, our team couldn’t clear him in good conscience. As soon as Mr. Thatcher heals, he and Tommaso Ciampa will sort out their differences in the Fight Pit.”

It sounds like we’ll see this grudge match in just a few weeks, so stay tuned for updates.
