Cameron Grimes is getting another shot at the Million Dollar Championship.
It was announced tonight that LA Knight will defend his Million Dollar Championship against Grimes at NXT TakeOver 36. If Grimes loses, “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase will have to become Knight’s butler.
Grimes has been Knight’s butler in storyline since unsuccessfully challenging for the Million Dollar Championship at NXT Great American Bash last month. Knight won the title by defeating Grimes in a ladder match at NXT TakeOver: In Your House this June.
Knight turned against DiBiase and attacked him after TakeOver: In Your House. Grimes then made the save for DiBiase.
On last week’s NXT, Knight walked out on Grimes during a tag team match against The Grizzled Young Veterans. After Grimes lost, DiBiase came out to the ring and told Grimes that he has to find some way to get out of being Knight’s butler.
Knight defeated Andre Chase on tonight’s NXT. DiBiase then appeared after the match and challenged Knight to give Grimes another shot at the Million Dollar title. The only way Knight would agree is if DiBiase would become Knight’s butler if Grimes loses. Grimes didn’t want DiBiase to accept, but DiBiase agreed to the stipulation and the match was made official.
TakeOver 36 is taking place on Sunday, August 22. Here’s the updated card for the show:
