The Dyad revealed as Drake & Gibson on WWE NXT



The Dyad revealed themselves tonight on NXT.

It was revealed during a vignette that the two druids that have been competing in tag matches in recent weeks are the former Grizzled Young Veterans, Zack Gibson and James Drake. During the segment, the two were transformed, no longer sporting facial hair and Gibson now wearing contact lenses. They are now going under the names Jagger Reid (Drake) and Rip Fowler (Gibson).

Gacy told them in the segment that their past is now behind him. Reid said they had found redemption, while Fowler said they now can be truly recognized. The segment ended with Gacy welcoming them home.

Gibson and Drake hadn’t been on television since the April 19 edition of NXT, when they lost to Legado del Fantasma. After the loss, a vignette on social media aired with the two saying the NXT Universe would no longer see Gibson and Drake.

In recent weeks, Gacy has introduced two hooded figures known as The Dyad. Last week, Gacy revealed their stable name was The Schism, and The Dyad would reveal their identities next week.
