NXT Tag Team Champions The Authors of Pain vs. #DIY vs. The Revival (Triple Threat Elimination Match)
NXT Tag Team Champions The Authors of Pain will have to demolish two teams to hang onto their titles at TakeOver: Orlando, as they will defend against both #DIY and The Revival in a Triple Threat Elimination Match.
Akam & Rezar shocked the NXT Universe at TakeOver: San Antonio when they defeated Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa to capture the titles. However, the resilient #DIY was not about to let Paul Ellering’s monsters get away without a fight. The duo fought valiantly in their guaranteed rematch, only for their championship dreams to be dashed by The Revival, who interfered in the match.
Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder have made it clear that they believe themselves to be the best tag team walking the planet today, and they’ll do anything to prove it, even if it draws the ire of the menacing champions. The Revival have targeted Akam & Rezar in recent weeks, attacking The Authors of Pain from behind and even hitting Akam with their devastating Shatter Machine. Dash & Dawson have always managed to escape the wrath of the monsters, leaving The Authors hungry for vengeance.
When all three teams squared off in a war of words on the March 15 edition of NXT, NXT General Manager William Regal was left with no other option but to put them in a Triple Threat Elimination Match at TakeOver, where the match will continue until only one tandem is left standing.
Can #DIY topple their two biggest rivals? Will The Revival pick up a record third NXT Tag Team Championship? Or will The Authors of Pain’s trademark brand of carnage reign supreme? Find out at NXT TakeOver: Orlando, live tonight at 8 ET/5 PT, on the award-winning WWE Network!
