Gauntlet match to determine new WWE NXT Tag Team Champions

There will be five teams in the gauntlet match for the vacant NXT Tag Team titles.

WWE has revealed how the next NXT Tag Team Champions will be determined.

A five-team gauntlet match for the vacant NXT Tag Team titles will take place on NXT this Tuesday. Grayson Waller & Sanga, Legado del Fantasma, The Creed Brothers, Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen, and Pretty Deadly will be the five teams in the match.

The NXT Tag Team titles were declared vacant after Nash Carter (real name Zachary Green) was released by WWE last week. Carter was released after being accused of domestic abuse by his wife Kimber Lee (Kimberly Green), and Lee also posted a picture of Carter impersonating Adolf Hitler and giving a Nazi salute.

Lee alleged that, last year, Carter got wasted and hit her so hard that she split her lip open.

Just four days before Carter's release, MSK (Carter & Wes Lee) won the NXT Tag Team titles by defeating Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner and The Creed Brothers in a triple threat match at NXT Stand & Deliver.

MSK had been set to defend their titles against Waller & Sanga on NXT this week.

Pretty Deadly, who were formerly members of the NXT UK roster, made their NXT 2.0 debut last Tuesday. They've been given new individual names, with Lewis Howley now known as Elton Prince and Sam Stoker now known as Kit Wilson.

Here's the updated lineup for this week's NXT:

  • NXT North American Champion Cameron Grimes defends against Solo Sikoa
  • NXT Women's Champion Mandy Rose defends against Dakota Kai
  • Five-team gauntlet match for the vacant NXT Tag Team titles
