NXT Tag Team Champions The War Raiders vs. Aleister Black & Ricochet
On the March 27 installment of NXT, Black & Ricochet were knighted as winners of the 2019 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic after defeating The Forgotten Sons. In notching the milestone victory, the fast-and-furious duo earned themselves an NXT Tag Team Championship Match against Hanson & Rowe at TakeOver. After surviving formidable tandems like Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner, #DIY and Forgotten Sons, the Dusty Classic winners now will meet their toughest challenge yet when they face off against the battle-tested War Raiders.
It was at TakeOver: Phoenix that Hanson & Rowe pillaged The Undisputed ERA’s championship reign and cast a menacing cloud over the Tag Team division. Since then, the rough and grizzled pair’s intimidating rule welcomed the targets of eight teams vying for the throne – all before it became just one.
Can Black & Ricochet topple the champions and snatch the NXT Tag Team crown, or will the mighty Hanson & Rowe continue to tighten their rule with an iron fist? Find out who will hold court in the end when NXT TakeOver: New York streams live tonight on WWE Network at 7 ET/4 PT.
