Although Stallion Pete isn't able to appear on NXT television, Matt Riddle hopes that the partnership between himself and Timothy Thatcher continues with Pete Dunne as the third member.
For the past couple of weeks, Thatcher has been teaming up with Riddle, replacing Dunne as one-half of the NXT Tag Team Champions due to Dunne being unable to fly into the United States. In an interview with Gary Cassidy of Sportskeeda, Riddle said he wants a stable consisting of himself, Dunne and Thatcher.
"Well, I would hope it would be a trio, you know. The connection between me and Pete, you know, was marvelous and, you know, I thought our chemistry was good and we work in the ring extremely well. You know, originally, we weren't picked to win the tournament and we definitely weren't supposed to win the titles, but by the time situations came to be, we were the ones with the belts, we were the ones with the cup," Riddle said.
Talking about Thatcher, Riddle said he's known him for quite some time, even before their time began in NXT. Like Dunne, Riddle said there is a natural chemistry between him and Thatcher and he hopes it continues.
"And then with Tim, I think you saw on the Newly-Bros Show, we are pretty compatible! And we've known each other... You know, on the Indies we met and we wrestled, we worked together, so me and Tim have a lot of chemistry too, and I know Tim's character, he knows my character, and just like me and Pete, we can play off each other extremely well. Hopefully we get to keep it going, you know what I'm saying? But you never know, you know. It's in the universe now, it's in destiny's hands," Riddle said.
