So let's move on to the next match that finally sees the athlete we all expected engaged, albeit with a small change considering that his opponent, Bryan Kendrick, has decided not to show up. SINGLES MATCH: Harland vs Andre Chase; Obviously the match has absolutely nothing to tell except Harland's overwhelming physical power that annihilates his opponent, bringing home the result in a matter of seconds.
RESULT: Harland's victory due to a technical knockout. The NXT Tag Team Champions walked out and taunted Lee and Carter right away. MSK asked the two heels to put their titles on the line on Tuesday night. WALTER appeared on the giant screen with a plan of his own.
He praised Barthel and Aichner and said MSK didn't deserve a title shot.
MSK returned to NXT
MSK returned to NXT after meeting The Original Bro, Riddle. Meanwhile, a match between Toxic Attraction and the team of Cora Jade and Raquel Gonzalez was changed to something bigger.
During the show, Carmelo Hayes and Roderick Strong came out for their contract signing segment. Von Wagner picked up another victory on NXT, but he remained unimpressive during the bout. The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic is underway, and WWE NXT has just witnessed its first big debut of the year.
Zachary Wentz and Dezmond Xavier are no more the Rascalz, but MSK. They have also been rechristened as Wes Lee and Nash Carter and made their NXT debut against Isiah Scott and Jake Atlas. 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.
On WWE NXT, the Grizzled Young Veterans beat Ever-Rise after the veteran team hit the Ticket to Mayhem for the win. MSK beat Atlas and Scott after hitting a modified Hart Attack on Scott for the win. The Undisputed Era beat former NXT Tag Team Champions Fandango and Tyler Breeze after Adam Cole super-kicked Fandango out of midair for the win.
