History has been made! There are a lot of titles under the WWE banner and that means that some of them are going to change hands from time to time. This can be a good or a bad thing, as you never know how the new champion is going to do. After a bad or boring title reign though, it might be the best possible move given how things are going to that point. That seemed to be the case with the most recent title change.
NXT has come such a long way since its inception a little over ten years ago. What was once a competition and then a dumping ground for wrestlers with nothing to do has become one of the more fascinating and entertaining wrestling shows in the world. The promotion now has its own history and championships, some of which changed hands during this week’s show.
This week on NXT, Breezango won the NXT Tag Team Titles by defeating Imperium. This is Breezango’s first title win in either WWE or NXT and ends Imperium’s reign at just over three months. Breezango earned the title shot by defeating Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch and Legado del Fantasma in a triple threat match on the NXT Takeover: XXX Kickoff Show. It is the second title change of the night as NXT Champion Karrion Kross was forced to vacate the title due to an injury.
Sounds dance partyish to me. Check out Breezango’s long road to the titles:
Opinion: The title change was fairly overdue as Imperium wasn’t doing much with the titles. That’s not meant as a knock against them but they don’t have the most depth as champions in the first place. Breezango might not be champions for very long (losing them to Legado del Fantasma wouldn’t shock me) but it was the kind of win that they needed. You can only be the fun team that loses all the time for so long without winning something and now they have done just that.
What did you think of the title change? How long will Breezango hold the titles? Let us know in the comments below.
