Ladder match to determine next NXT Tag Team Champions
July 5, 2020
The next NXT Tag Team Champions will be crowned in a ladder match at TakeOver XXV.
William Regal announced on tonight’s episode of NXT that Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch, The Undisputed Era (Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish), The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford), and The Forgotten Sons (Wesley Blake & Steve Cutler) will face off in a ladder match for the vacant titles at TakeOver XXV. The special is taking place at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Connecticut on Saturday, June 1.
The match was first announced at this month’s NXT television tapings, though the ladder stipulation wasn’t confirmed until now.
The NXT Tag Team titles were vacated after The Viking Raiders were called up to Raw in this year’s Superstar Shake-up.
On the NXT TV episode that aired last week, The Viking Raiders bowed to the fans and left the titles in the ring. That came after their title defense against The Street Profits ended in a no contest when The Forgotten Sons got involved and started a brawl, which also included Lorcan & Burch.
Velveteen Dream defending his North American Championship against Tyler Breeze was also announced for TakeOver XXV tonight, along with a singles match between Matt Riddle and Roderick Strong. NXT Champion Johnny Gargano will defend his title against Adam Cole at the special, and Io Shirai will challenge for Shayna Baszler’s Women’s Championship.
