Previously, we reported how WWE had decided to make the NXT couple titles vacant, after learning of the serious injury that occurred to one of the two champions of the company's yellow roster, Danny Burch. After experiencing the separation of a shoulder, in the match against Karrion Kross, just a week ago, in the penultimate episode of the WWE third roster show, Danny Burch confirmed with some medical examinations and with some X-rays, that he will have to undergo a surgery to fix the damaged limb, with the show's General Manager therefore having to make the titles in their possession vacant.
New NXT Tag Team Champions to be crowned at TakeOver
Right in the announcement made two days ago by William Regal, we learned that we would know what would become of NXT's male tag team titles, only in the episode of the yellow show tonight and we did.
In the episode aired tonight, WWE wanted to make concrete the match that will establish the new tag team champions, in the new special appointment with the yellow roster of NXT, with the TakeOver that will be broadcast in two evenings, in Wrestlemania Week, which will sanction a new pair of champions for the roster.
To compete with the titles vacated by Regal, there will be three couples, or the winners of the tournament dedicated to the memory of Dusty Rhodes, the MSK, the Grizzled Young Veterans and the Legado De Fantasma, who will battle in a triple threat match, where obviously there are no disqualifications, but the first one to back any opponent, takes home the belts.
Now let's see the other disputes already confirmed for the first or second evening dedicated to TakeOver: - NXT Title match: Finn Balor vs Karrion Kross - Night 2 - NXT Women's Title match: Io Shirai vs Raquel Gonzalez - Night 1 - NXT Tag Team Titles match: MSK vs Grizzled Young Veterans vs Legado De Fantasma - Night 1 - NXT Cruiserweight title match: Jordan Devlin vs Santos Escobar (title unification match).
Now that the match has been announced, the future of the NXT Tag Team titles is clear. The first night of TakeOver: Stand & Deliver already looks to be promising and the NXT Tag Team Championships match could very well be the main event.
The NXT Universe will have to wait until April 7 to find out which team will walk out of the Capitol Wrestling Center as the new tag team champions.
