NXT Tag Team Champion
Wesley Blake: Bio
When you combine amped-up enthusiasm with a side of Southern style, you have Wesley Blake.
The Texas roughneck, who counts WWE Hall of Famer and fellow Texan Dory Funk Jr. as a mentor, joined NXT in 2013, and it didn’t long for him to find success, first in tag team competition. Together with Buddy Murphy, Blake shocked the world by defeating The Lucha Dragons to win the NXT Tag Team Championship in early 2015, embarking on a reign that lasted nearly seven months. During that time, they turned back the challenge of the Dragons and other top teams, including the ever-popular Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady.
After parting ways with Murphy, Blake ventured out to show the NXT Universe that he can handle the mat game on his own. With a bad attitude, a fiery temper and heavy fists, Blake can always be counted on to put up one hell of a fight.
