Two of the hardest-hitting teams in NXT are set to collide.
Lorcan & Burch were originally set to defend their titles against Dusty Cup winners MSK. The Grizzled Young Veterans viciously ambushed MSK last week however, putting Wes Lee out of action with a broken hand and derailing MSK’s title opportunity.
Confronting Nash Carter & Lee at the Capitol Wrestling Center, Lorcan & Burch called the injury a “blessing in disguise.” The Blackheart overheard the champions’ trash talk and his interest was piqued.

Though Ciampa & Thatcher couldn’t go all the way, they forged a memorable Dusty Classic run in their own right. Banding together after earning each other’s respect in an unforgettable battle in the Fight Pit, Ciampa & Thatcher complemented their no-nonsense styles with surprisingly strong chemistry.
Now, can they show they belong among NXT’s Tag Team elite?
