WWE NXT: The Grizzled Young Veterans Return, Beat Down Ever-Rise

Former NXT UK Tag Team Champions Grizzled Young Vets returned on this week’s episode of NXT and announced their intentions for the Tag Team Championships.

Zack Gibson and Jack Drake debuted on the brand earlier this year, and had a similar segment, attacking Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendonza.

They participated in the Dusty Rhodes Classic, defeating Alex Shelly and Kushida, and The Undisputed Era, before losing to Pete Dunne and Matt Riddle in the finals.

The plans for their stay in the division were cut short after the pandemic hit, forcing the two Englishmen to stay away from NXT programming.

Gibson and Drake spent 2019 on the NXT UK brand, holding the tag team titles as the inaugural champions for more than 200 days. They lost the titles to Flash Morgan Webster and Mark Andrews at NXT UK: Cardiff last year.
