Two Tag Team title matches set for next week's WWE NXT


After having to vacate the titles earlier this year, Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch are getting a shot to once again become NXT Tag Team Champions.

WWE has announced that MSK will defend their NXT Tag Team titles against Lorcan & Burch on NXT next Tuesday. There was a backstage segment on tonight's NXT where MSK went to general manager William Regal and said they'd like to give Lorcan & Burch a shot at the titles.

Lorcan & Burch had to vacate the NXT Tag Team titles this March after Burch suffered a separated shoulder. MSK won the vacant titles by defeating The Grizzled Young Veterans and Legado del Fantasma's Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde in a triple threat match at TakeOver: Stand & Deliver in April.

Burch returned from injury on last week's NXT episode. During a promo later in the show, Lorcan & Burch called themselves the rightful NXT Tag Team Champions.

Lorcan & Burch are part of a group with Pete Dunne and Ridge Holland in NXT. MSK saved Tommaso Ciampa from Dunne, Holland, Lorcan, and Burch after Ciampa defeated Holland in tonight's main event.

The NXT Women's Tag Team titles will also be on the line as Io Shirai & Zoey Stark defend against Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter next Tuesday. It will be Shirai & Stark's first title defense since becoming champions.

Catanzaro & Carter defeated Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne on last week's NXT.

Here's the full list of what's been announced for next Tuesday's NXT:

  • NXT Tag Team Champions MSK defend against Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch
  • NXT Women's Tag Team Champions Io Shirai & Zoey Stark defend against Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter
  • Ember Moon vs. Kay Lee Ray
