The NXT Tag Team titles will be on the line in a street fight this coming Wednesday night.

WWE has announced that NXT Tag Team Champions Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch will defend their titles against Killian Dain & Drake Maverick in a street fight on Wednesday's NXT. Both teams were part of a four-way brawl on the most recent episode of NXT.

Lorcan & Burch accompanied Pete Dunne to the ring for his match against Kyle O'Reilly on NXT this week. O'Reilly was accompanied by Adam Cole & Roderick Strong. But before the bell rang, Dain & Maverick attacked Lorcan & Burch and a brawl broke out. Cole & Strong and Breezango also got involved and the four teams brawled to the back.

Pat McAfee, Dunne, Lorcan & Burch interrupted a match between Dain & Maverick and Ever-Rise on NXT last month. Dain ended up having a car door slammed into his head by Dunne. Dain lost to Dunne on NXT last week after being distracted by Lorcan & Burch attacking Maverick at ringside.

Lorcan & Burch have been NXT Tag Team Champions since aligning with McAfee and winning the titles from Breezango on the October 21 episode of NXT.

For this coming Wednesday's show, WWE has also announced that NXT Champion Finn Balor and O'Reilly will "both take a special look back" at their title match from TakeOver 31. Balor retained against O'Reilly in that match but broke his jaw in two places. O'Reilly defeated Dunne on NXT this week to become the number one contender to the NXT Championship. O'Reilly will challenge Balor for the title at NXT New Year's Evil on Wednesday, January 6.

Here's the updated lineup for Wednesday's NXT:

  • A Very Gargano Christmas
  • NXT Tag Team Champions Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch defend against Killian Dain & Drake Maverick in a street fight
  • NXT Champion Finn Balor and Kyle O'Reilly look back at their title match from TakeOver 31
