Cameron Grimes was out on NXT 2.0 and after last week’s haircut, he said that his beard and hair were reminders of his early days where he struggled for years before making it big in WWE.

“If I scratched and I clawed, it didn’t matter how many nights I slept on a concrete floor… I showed all those people that @CGrimesWWE holds it down!”

Duke Hudson took it away from him and he was not happy about it. Hudson came on the Titantron and mocked Grimes some more before turning down his challenge for a match.

Grimes fired back and challenged him to a Hair vs. Hair match at NXT WarGames. Hudson accepted the challenge and showed us that he saved Grimes’ hair in a plastic bag.

Gacy took shots at Roderick Strong and said that the Cruiserweight Title was offensive. Strong challenged Gacy to a Title match at WarGames, and Joe accepted it. Bivens asked the Creed Brothers to toss Gacy out of the ring, but Harland showed up, and Diamond Mine retreated.
