From WWE:

Since returning to NXT, Ridge Holland has been on a mission to smash everything that stands in his way and Trey Baxter has now found himself in the crosshairs for the NXT TakeOver 36 Pre-Show.

Baxter showed off his grit and determination in the NXT Breakout Tournament and took to social media to call out Holland to put those skills to the test once again. The bludgeoning Superstar from Yorkshire was quick to accept the challenge and put in motion the TakeOver showdown.

Don’t miss the clash this Sunday, Aug. 22, on the NXT TakeOver 36 Pre-Show at 7:30 PT/4:30 ET on Peacock in the United States, WWE Network everywhere else and across all WWE social platforms.
