Timothy Thatcher will get a match at the Great American Bash.
NXT General Manager William Regal announced that Thatcher will take on Oney Lorcan on the July 1 episode of NXT, which will serve as part one of the Great American Bash. This comes after Lorcan kept asking for a match against Thatcher on Twitter and Regal obliged.
Timothy Thatcher has demonstrated painful teachings in recent weeks, but Oney Lorcan isn’t deterred.
They’ll square off Wednesday night at The Great American Bash in what promises to be a hard-hitting bout.
After defeating Matt Riddle in the NXT Fight Pit, Thatcher has focused on education in recent weeks, stretching pupils in his “Thatch-as-Thatch-can” wrestling school.
Lorcan took notice, calling Thatcher out for a match.

Now NXT General Manager William Regal is giving Lorcan exactly what he wants.

Will Thatcher take Lorcan to school, or will Oney rule?
