MSK vs. Grizzled Young Veterans vs. Legado del Fantasma for the NXT Tag Team Championship

New NXT Tag Team Champions will be crowned on Night 1 of NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver.

MSK will collide with The Grizzled Young Veterans and Legado del Fantasma in a Triple Threat Tag Team Match for the vacant NXT Tag Team Titles.

The titles were vacated from former champions Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch after Burch was rendered unable to compete due to a separated shoulder suffered in a title defense against Karrion Kross & Finn Bálor.

NXT General Manager William Regal made the difficult decision, but the bad news came with good news for the NXT Universe in the form of what is sure to be a can’t-miss battle between three of the black-and-gold brand’s top teams.

MSK and GYV are already more than familiar with each other. Zack Gibson fractured Wes Lee’s hand in a savage attack in February, costing MSK their initial NXT Tag Team Title opportunity for winning The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Gibson got a receipt though, as MSK retaliated by smashing Gibson’s hand against the steps.

Meanwhile, Legado del Fantasma also have history with MSK, as Nash Carter & Lee narrowly defeated them in a thriller to advance to the Dusty Classic finals. 

Which team will leave NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver as the new NXT Tag Team Champions? Find out on Wednesday, April 7, at 8/7 C on USA Network and Peacock in the U.S. and on WWE Network everywhere else!
