WWE NXT Preview: WWE NXT sees a couple of titles defended on this week’s show after Backlash.
As announced earlier, the Women’s tag titles would be defended on the show and that will see Bayley and Sasha Banks grace their old stomping grounds.
However, they have a tough assignment on as they defend their WWE titles, and this is where we start off with the NXT preview.
Best friends face a challenge
Bayley and Banks retained their Women’s tag titles at Backlash but don’t have time to rest. The best friends will be in action on this week’s NXT and face off against Tegan Nox and Shotzi Blackheart.
Blackheart and Nox have formed a sort of coalition in recent weeks. However, they face one of the most experienced tag teams in WWE.
Nox and Blackheart have to be at their best to have any chance of winning the titles. Bayley and Banks cannot take the NXT pair lightly or we could get a huge shock on Wednesday.
Men’s tag titles on the line
Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner of Imperium will also defend their tag titles on NXT. The pair won it from Matt Riddle and Timothy Thatcher after the former champions imploded.
Barthel and Aichner won’t have it easy though on NXT. They face off against Breezango, with Tyler Breeze and Fandango looking great on their return.
Breezango have never won the NXT titles as a pair, and this will be a great chance for them to break the duck.
Other possible angles
Adam Cole beat Velveteen Dream at NXT TakeOver: In Your House to keep his NXT title.
Karrion Kross was teased as a rival for Cole as Scarlett Bordeaux placed an hour glass after Cole’s match recently.
Kross vs Cole could be something special, and it will be interesting to see what happens next for the champ.
Io Shirai is the new women’s NXT Champion and the Japanese star also needs a new rival ahead of her first title defence.
