Adam Cole told the NXT Universe that he was the Undisputed ERA and that he took out the trash, while Leon Ruff sent a warning to Isaiah “Swerve” Scott to make the rivalry more interesting.
Let’s take a look at five of many great moments in WWE NXT this week.
#5 William Regal made two monumental announcements on WWE NXT
Last week, William Regal promised a monumental announcement. During the week, the single announcement was turned into two.
Regal came out early in the night to make them and kick off NXT. He first showed a videot that declared to the WWE Universe that NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver would a two-night event, on Wednesday and Thursday just before WrestleMania 37. The NXT General Manager then welcomed Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez to the ring, unveiled the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships, and awarded the titles to the two women who’d won the inaugural Women’s Dusty Rhodes Classic Cup. Soon after, Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart challenged the Champions for the new titles.
This was a good way to kick off NXT this week.
Kai and Gonzalez deserved to win the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships last week but were robbed of the opportunity. Awarding them the new titles was the right move
