The new WWE NXT Tag Team Champions will be crowned at the next two-night “Takeover: Stand and Deliver” event.
As noted, NXT General Manager William Regal vacated the titles this week after Danny Burch suffered a separate shoulder during last week’s NXT Main Event, in which he and Oney Lorcan retained the titles over Karrion Kross and NXT Champion Finn Balor.
In an update, it was announced on tonight’s NXT show that a Triple Threat will be taking place at Takeover to determine new champions. The match will feature The Grizzled Young Veterans (James Drake, Zack Gibson), MSK (Wes Lee, Nash Carter) and Legado del Fantasma (Raul Mendoza, Joaquin Wilde).
The party will take place during night one.
The NXT event “Takeover: Stand and Deliver” will take place on Wednesday, April 7 and Thursday, April 8. Night One will air on USA Network, while Night Two will air on Peacock and WWE Network.
