Shotzi Blackheart, Tegan Nox debut on SmackDown as a tag team

Natalya & Tamina didn’t have to defend their women’s tag team titles on Friday Night SmackDown this week, but they did have to wrestle a team we were told would be making their debut on the brand who we haven’t seen before.

As it turned out, that was Shotzi Blackheart and Tegan Nox, who were referred to by simply Shotzi and Nox. The two have been working down in NXT for some time now, so we can reasonably expect that this is a main roster call up.

It’s noteworthy that in Blackheart’s case, she was in a tag team in NXT with Ember Moon, who tweeted the following:

As for Nox, she just returned from a knee injury at The Great American Bash, where she helped cost The Way the NXT women’s tag team titles. It looked like she reignited her feud with Candice LeRae but perhaps those plans changed.

Oh and Shotzi & Nox defeated Nattie & Tamina, so they’re already top contenders on the main roster.

How about that?
