Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen to challenge for NXT UK Tag Team titles

Sarray is also set for action on NXT UK next week.

An NXT 2.0 team is getting a shot at the NXT UK Tag Team titles.

On the NXT UK episode that airs next Thursday, Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen will challenge Oliver Carter & Ashton Smith for the NXT UK Tag Team Championship. It will be Smith & Carter's first defense since winning the titles.

Carter & Smith became NXT UK Tag Team Champions by defeating Moustache Mountain (Tyler Bate & Trent Seven) and Die Familie (Teoman & Rohan Raja) in a triple threat match on NXT UK two weeks ago.

Fallon Henley, who is aligned with Briggs & Jensen in NXT 2.0, will also be appearing with them on NXT UK.

A promo from Briggs, Jensen, and Henley aired on NXT UK this week. Briggs said it will be an honor to face Carter & Smith.

Briggs & Jensen's team debuted following last September's NXT 2.0 rebrand. The story of their partnership is that they bonded after getting into a bar fight with each other.

Briggs & Jensen are currently feuding with Von Wagner on NXT 2.0.

It's also been announced that NXT 2.0's Sarray will be in action against Nina Samuels on NXT UK next Thursday.

NXT 2.0's Wagner, Lash Legend, Ivy Nile, and Damon Kemp have also recently appeared on NXT UK. They took part in April's NXT UK television tapings.
