The Revival def. Heavy Machinery
Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder have their sights set on becoming three-time NXT Tag Team Champions, but standing in their way on the road back to championship glory was 650 pounds of Heavy Machinery. Tucker Knight & Otis Dozovic muscled The Revival around, but Dawson & Wilder used their smarts (and a few dirty tricks) to put the big men on the defensive. Knight soon found himself on the receiving end of a devastating DDT from Dawson that gave The Revival the victory.
Afterward, the 2016 NXT Tag Team of the Year grabbed the microphone and called out Paul Ellering’s Authors of Pain, challenging the reigning NXT Tag Team Champions to a match at TakeOver: Orlando on the eve of WrestleMania 33. The champions quickly emerged, with Ellering stating that anyone who stepped up would be ground to dust by Akam & Rezar. The Revival left the NXT Universe questioning that claim, as they attacked The Authors from behind, leaving the champions reeling as they hurried away before The Authors could retaliate.
