Travel restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic already forced NXT General Manager William Regal to come up with a creative solution for the brand’s Cruiserweight championship.
They also caused a dilemma when it came to the NXT Tag Team titles. Like Cruiserweight king Jordan Devlin, The BroserWeights’ Pete Dunne is on the other side of the Atlantic. Regal doesn’t want the belts sitting idle, and since Dunne’s partner Matt Riddle is in Florida, it wouldn’t be fair to crown interim champs like he’s doing with Devlin’s title.
BREAKING— WWE’s The Bump (@WWETheBump) April 15, 2020
1️⃣ The #BROserweights will find a temporary replacement for @PeteDunneYxB.
2️⃣ @SuperKingofBros will defend the NXT Tag Team Championship with that partner against #UndisputedERA TONIGHT on #WWENXT!! pic.twitter.com/ZCnae8lI4u
Riddle & Dunne took the titles from Undisputed ERA’s Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish at TakeOver: Portland, and won a rematch on the Mar. 11 episode of NXT. But the group who Triple H & team were setting up as BroserWeight’s next challengers (Grizzled Young Veterans) are also in the United Kingdom, and there aren’t really any other heel teams built up for a shot at the straps. So an Undisputed remix team of Fish & Roderick Strong get the call.
Now, let the speculation about Riddle’s MYSTERY PARTNER begin.
I hope it’s North American champ Keith Lee, but maybe it’s the ERA’s current foil Velveteen Dream?
