Tag Team title match official for NXT TakeOver: Toronto


After it was confirmed at June's television tapings, the Tag Team title match for NXT TakeOver: Toronto has now been officially announced.

The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford) will defend their titles against The Undisputed Era (Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish) at the SummerSlam weekend special. The Scotiabank Arena is hosting TakeOver: Toronto on Saturday, August 10.

Dawkins & Ford have been NXT Tag Team Champions since defeating O'Reilly & Fish, Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch, and The Forgotten Sons (Wesley Blake & Steve Cutler) in a ladder match for the then-vacant titles at TakeOver XXV last month. O'Reilly dealt with a staph infection after hurting his back in that match.

The Street Profits made their main roster debut on the July 1 episode of Raw. They've continued to appear in segments since then but have yet to wrestle.

Adam Cole will defend the NXT Championship against Johnny Gargano in a two-out-of-three falls match in the main event of TakeOver: Toronto. In storyline, Gargano will pick a stipulation for one fall and Cole will pick the stipulation for the other. If it goes to a third fall, William Regal will choose the last stipulation.
