There are no rings and turnbuckles in a Fight Pit. Instead, the ring is surrounded by a steel cell; sort of a variation of a cage match. The match ends when a wrestler either fails to stand up to a count-out or submits to his opponent.
The only other match of this kind took place back in May this year when Thatcher took on Riddle. Thatcher won that match by applying a rear-naked choke to Riddle causing him to pass out.
Will New Year’s Evil see Ciampa suffer the same fate as Riddle or will the former NXT Champion pick up a win on his first try too?
