NXT TV taping results: War Machine get their WWE team name


War Machine arrived on NXT television and got their WWE team name at tonight's pre-TakeOver tapings in New Orleans.

Ray Rowe and Hanson interrupted a match between Heavy Machinery and Tino Sabbatelli & Riddick Moss, destroying both teams in the process. It was revealed that they'll be using "War Raiders" as their name.

The other match taped tonight was Kairi Sane vs. Lacey Evans. Sane won after hitting her Insane Elbow.

Sane vs. Evans was advertised in advance for Wednesday's episode of NXT TV, and the War Raiders' debut should air as well. The show will also feature video packages and interviews from the fallout of TakeOver: New Orleans.

After Monday and Tuesday's post-WrestleMania editions of Raw and SmackDown, there will be NXT TV tapings at Full Sail University this coming Wednesday. The next TakeOver special is scheduled for Chicago on June 16th as part of Money in the Bank weekend.
