Chad Lail pulled out the victory in Dallas and he reportedly wasn't supposed to.
In Dallas at an NXT Live Event, Kassius Ohno wrestled Chad Lail. According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer, Ohno has wrestled Lail many times on the tour and usually wins but the Dallas Crowd had a unique response. The report says the fans chanted for Lail and in the middle of the match the roles and momentum shifted to Lail who ended up winning.
Lail took notice of the fan reaction and commented on Twitter.
Apparently Dallas loves me! #CrazyUncleChad— Chad Lail (@ChadLailWWE) May 19, 2018

For almost a year, Lail has been wrestling on the NXT Live tours but has yet to have a match on the weekly show. His last television match was in Impact Wrestling under the name Gunner.
Lail will appear on an upcoming episode of NXT and Fightful Wrestling has the spoilers for that episode.
Fightful Wrestling will have live coverage for NXT every Wednesday and the brand is discussed on the Fightful Weekender Podcast at FightfulSelect.com
