Dain & Maverick become number one contenders to NXT Tag Team titles


New number one contenders to the NXT Tag Team titles were decided on tonight's TakeOver: Stand & Deliver night two pre-show.

Killian Dain & Drake Maverick defeated Breezango to become number one contenders on tonight's pre-show. WWE has not announced when Dain & Maverick will be getting their shot at MSK's NXT Tag Team titles. 

Maverick pinned Tyler Breeze in tonight's match after hitting a top rope hurricanrana and being powerbombed onto Breeze by Dain. 

MSK's Wes Lee & Nash Carter claimed the vacant NXT Tag Team titles yesterday on night one of TakeOver: Stand & Deliver, defeating Grizzled Young Veterans (James Drake & Zack Gibson) and Legado Del Fantasma (Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde). The titles had been held previously by Danny Burch & Oney Lorcan, but were vacated after Burch suffered a shoulder injury on the March 17 episode of NXT. William Regal announced that the titles were officially vacated in a tweet on March 23.

Breezango are former NXT Tag Team champs themselves, having held the title from August 2020 to October 2020.
