Just after receiving the Title, Knight said that the time has arrived for him to drop what he no longer needed anymore and then attacked DiBiase with a microphone. Cameron Grimes entered the ring to rescue The Million Dollar Man as he threw Knight out of the ring. This act of Knight incensed Grimes as he shouted at him by saying he has crossed the line.

A battle that is far from over

This segment from the show gives the WWE Universe a sign that the battle between LA Knight and Cameron Grimes is far from being done and dusted. Their rivalry will continue imminently and the fans would be eager to know what more these two can offer to their battle.

The involvement of Ted DiBiase in the storyline of LA Knight and Cameron Grimes’ rivalry elevated the angle to another level. During the post Takeover media call, Shawn Michaels revealed the addition of Ted DiBiase into the storyline of Cameron Grimes wasn’t something that they planned and it was more of an instant decision. 

Questions will also arise about The Million Dollar Championship as to whether the title will be part of this ongoing feud between Knight and Grimes. It will be interesting to see whether NXT will stick with LA Knight as the Million Dollar Champion or choose the baby face Cameron Grimes as the next Million Dollar Champion at the end of this rivalry.
