New Tag Team Champions will be crowned on Tuesday's episode of NXT.

Following the release of Nash Carter, WWE announced today that the NXT Tag Team titles have officially been relinquished. New champions will be crowned on NXT this coming Tuesday, but WWE hasn't revealed how the new champions will be determined.

"The current NXT Tag Team Champions have relinquished the titles," WWE wrote. "New champions will be crowned this Tuesday night at 8/7 C on USA Network. Stay tuned to WWE.com and WWE social accounts for updates."

Carter (real name Zachary Green) was released by WWE after being accused of domestic abuse by his wife Kimber Lee (Kimberly Green). Lee also posted a photo of Carter impersonating Adolf Hitler with his mustache shaved and giving a Nazi salute.

Lee alleged that Carter hit her so hard last year that he split her lip open.

Prior to Carter's release, MSK (Carter & Wes Lee) won the NXT Tag Team titles by defeating Imperium (Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner) and The Creed Brothers (Julius & Brutus Creed) in a triple threat match at NXT Stand & Deliver last Saturday.

MSK had been scheduled to defend their titles against Grayson Waller & Sanga on NXT next week.

The Creed Brothers defeated Imperium in a tag match on this week's NXT. During the match, Aichner walked out on Barthel. There was then a post-match angle where The Creed Brothers were attacked by the debuting Pretty Deadly.
