WWE NXT Great American Bash Matches: Timothy Thatcher and Tommaso Ciampa vs. MSK at the Great American Bash
Timothy Thatcher and Tommaso Ciampa have formed a formidable team for a brief period now, and they have looked dominant. They have been on a juggernaut run ever since joining hands, and a shot at NXT Tag Team Titles was always in vision.
Lets get it then!
Man we’re defending our NXT Tag Team Championships on Great American Bash… HOW AMAZING IS THAT?! The Bash was always one of my absolute favorite PPVs. https://t.co/iB1ClYXdlH

For MSK, this would be their first-ever title defense against Timothy Thatcher and Tommaso Ciampa. Their last title defense came against Legad Del Fantasma at NXT Takeover: In Your House in a 6-man Tag-Team winner takes all match. It was a convincing victory for them in that event, but facing Timothy Thatcher & Tommaso Ciampa would be a different cup of tea.
The match was made official in tonight’s WWE NXT. In the last week’s episode, Timothy Thatcher and Tommaso Ciampa defeated The Grizzled Young Veterans, making a statement of their dominance. In a pre-match backstage segment, MSK and Timothy Thatcher & Tommaso Ciampa exchanging looks, and Thatcher was the one who walked off with Carter’s popcorn. The seeds were planted last week, and the official announcement was made tonight. Here’s the updated match card for WWE NXT Great American Bash Matches
- Adam Cole vs. Kyle O’Reilly
- Timothy Thatcher and Tommaso Ciampa vs. MXK for the NXT Tag-Team Championship
NXT Great American Bash will be streaming live on July 6 from the Capitol Wrestling Center at WWE Performance Center on the USA Network.
