WWE has officially announced that the NXT Tag Team titles will be on the line this Wednesday.
Current NXT Tag Team Champions and members of the Kings of NXT, Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch will be defending their titles against Drake Maverick and Killian Dain.
While the tag team titles will be on the line in the match, it is not going to be a standard title defense as the match has been announced to be a street fight.
Lorcan and Burch won the NXT Tag Team Championship on the October 21 episode of NXT. They defeated the team of Breezango (Tyler Breeze and Fandango) that night. This is the first time that Lorcan and Burch have held the tag team championships.
As we mentioned, Lorcan and Burch are part of the Kings of NXT, along with Pete Dunne and Pat McAfee. They had previously clashed with Maverick and Dain, notably attacking them before a few of their matches.
They and their allies also injured Dain by slamming his head in between a car door. This match, therefore, is not just a championship match, but also a grudge match between two teams with some bad blood between them.
