Tornado tag match announced for next week's WWE NXT


A tornado tag match is set to take place on next week's episode of NXT.

Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher will face off with The Grizzled Young Veterans (Zack Gibson & James Drake) in a tornado tag match on NXT next Tuesday. The match was announced after a challenge that was issued by The Grizzled Young Veterans on tonight's NXT.

The Grizzled Young Veterans were in action on NXT tonight, facing August Grey & Ikemen Jiro. During the match, Ciampa and Thatcher came out to ringside and watched on from steel chairs. The Grizzled Young Veterans were momentarily distracted but still got the win.

After the match, The Grizzled Young Veterans reiterated that they're done with Ciampa & Thatcher and are focused on MSK's NXT Tag Team titles. Ciampa said The Grizzled Young Veterans won't be getting a title shot unless they go through Ciampa & Thatcher first. Ciampa and Thatcher threw their chairs toward Gibson & Drake.

The Grizzled Young Veterans then challenged Ciampa & Thatcher to a tornado tag match for next week. Ciampa & Thatcher accepted the challenge and went to go after The Grizzled Young Veterans, but Gibson and Drake bailed out of the ring.

Ciampa & Thatcher defeated The Grizzled Young Veterans when they faced off on NXT last month. Two weeks later, interference by The Grizzled Young Veterans led to Ciampa & Thatcher losing a match against Legado del Fantasma's Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde.

Next Tuesday's NXT will be the post-TakeOver: In Your House edition of the show. TakeOver: In Your House is taking place this Sunday.
