NXT on USA Live Results: Will Matt Riddle or Killian Dain Win A World Championship Opportunity?

NXT's second live show is tonight and it continues the threads from last week's premiere like the Matt Riddle and Killian Dain Street Fight.

For the September 25 episode of NXT on USA, we're getting another Street Fight between the two wrestlers, but with higher stakes involved. The winner of tonight's match will receive a future shot at Adam Cole's NXT Championship. Both Riddle and Dain will have more motivation to win this match, not like they needed it anyway. How will Cole and the rest of The Undisputed Era react to a new challenger just one week after winning all the gold?

Speaking of a match between two high-caliber wrestlers, Keith Lee and Dominik Dijakovic will square off for a third time. The first encounter resulted in a double count out while Dijakovic picked up the victory in round two, but what will happen when Keith and Dominik collide? If their last two bouts are anything to go by, it'll be something to behold.

The NXT women's division is getting a welcome return to its ranks. Dakota Kai will be in action for the first time all year after suffering a torn ACL. How will she fare in her return match, and can she make a mark in a division that's already stacked with talent?

And finally, the NXT faithful were surprised to see the NXT UK Champion Walter and his Imperium stablemates appear on the premiere episode on USA. While they came to Full Sail to preach their "proper" wrestling, Kushida emerged to stare down the "Ring General." After a brief brawl, Walter will send his Imperium stable against Kushida and two partners of his choosing. Who will Kushida find to fight alongside him? The Japanese wrestler made his debut on 205 Live last week, so perhaps he can bring some of the Cruiserweights to fight by his side. With 205 Live being incorporated more in NXT, it's not out of the realm of possibility. Regardless of who Kushida chooses, this match could steal the show.

A quick reminder that this episode of NXT will have its first hour on the USA Network before the second hour goes live on the WWE Network.

Here's everything that happened on the September 25 episode of NXT.
