MAIN EVENT-FATAL 4WAY: MSK (C) vsGYVvsHayes & WilliamsvsCarter & Lee We are witnessing a very interesting match that sees Williams and Hayes being eliminated first. The second to abandon the contest are the Grizzled Young Veterans at the hands of Carter and Lee who take advantage of a change not seen by Gibson to score a devastating 4-handed powerbomb followed by the pin.
Considering that Carter is out of action for having suffered the Ticket to Mayhem, it is Wess Lee who takes control of the situation for the champions but is forced to suffer the offensive of the opponents benefiting from the numerical superiority.
Imperium challenged MSK
MSK’s Wes Lee and Nash Carter accepted the challenge to defend their WWE NXT Tag Team Championships this week. They put their title on the line in a tag team elimination match against The Grizzled Young Veterans, Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen, and Carmela Hayes and Trick Williams.
When everything seems ready to crown the new pair champions, Carter manages to get back on the ropes preventing the execution of the 4-handed powerbomb. Lee then manages to score the roll-up that gives him the final pin. Result: pinfall victory for the MSK who once again confirmed themselves as NXT Tag Team Champions.
Not even the time to rejoice that the champions are attacked from behind by the Imperium that literally knocks them out. Carter and Lee return to the rescue of the champions, forcing Fabian and Marcel to flee. Imperium then heads backstage accompanied by the “thank you Imperium!” Choir.
Well but not very well for the MSK who, despite a high-level performance in the ring, are unable to attract the graces of the NXT Universe. Wes Lee and Nash Carter are a valuable addition to the NXT tag team division. Teams like the Undisputed Era and Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch have held the division on their backs, and it’s time for them to move on.
In the Dusty Classic, teams like Grizzled Young Veterans and Imperium are also taking part. These teams are likely to put on insane matches against MSK, given how talented Wes and Nash are. They were a regular attraction in Impact and PWG, making them one of the most sought after teams in North America.
Wes Lee and Nash Carter faced off against Isiah Scott and Jake Atlas in the first round of the Dusty Classic. This match served a much greater purpose than just the debut for MSK. It also served as a way of taking the Isiah Scott-Jake Atlas storyline forward. Swerve has been teasing a heel turn for some time, and Atlas is the perfect foil for him.
