War Raiders def. local competitors and Cezar Bononi & Adrian Jaoude in back-to-back matches
ORLANDO, Fla. – Before defending their titles against Aleister Black & Ricochet at TakeOver: New York, NXT Tag Team Champions The War Raiders pre-gamed with a set of stretch drills. Of course, the “stretch drills” in this case were at the expense of the opponents who had the unfortunate task of squaring up against them in the ring.
To send a message ahead of TakeOver, Hanson & Rowe unloaded their domineering might on not one, but two teams. They started by making short work of a pair of locals, who were trounced within a matter of seconds, before unleashing the appetite for destruction on Cezar Bononi & Adrian Jaoude. Hanson nearly decapitated Bononi with a clothesline, before handing Bononi & Jaoude to Rowe, who downed both Superstars with a simultaneous powerbomb and powerslam. To properly conclude their statement, the bearded brawlers flattened Bononi with a vicious Fallout to claim the three-count and send a warning to their TakeOver opponents.
