Following the bout, Grey attacked Thatcher and sought further retribution the next week by attacking him backstage.
August Grey was officially announced as one of WWE’s latest signings in October and unveiled alongside EVOLVE partner and valet, Brandi Lauren, as well the company’s newest set recruits.
