We need someone new. Champions are some of the most important people in all of wrestling. Holding a title means something in the industry as it shows fans who the most important wrestlers are, as those shiny belts are easy to spot. Someone losing a title means a lot, and now that has taken place again, though this time it wasn’t inside of a wrestling ring.
Last weekend, MSK (Nash Carter and Wes Lee) won the NXT Tag Team Titles for the second time, defeating the Creed Brothers and reigning champions Imperium. Earlier this week, Carter was released from the company following domestic violence allegations and the release of a photo of him impersonating Hitler. WWE has announced that the titles have officially been vacated, with new champions being crowned next week on NXT. No teams have been announced for the title match and MSK is not listed in the article. There is no word on Lee’s future in NXT.
Opinion: You had to know this was coming and WWE didn’t have much of a choice. Either the allegations or the photo were more than enough to get Carter released and he had both coming at once. I would assume the Creed Brothers are next in line for the titles but you never can tell. Also, I’d like to believe that Lee’s future isn’t hurt by this. He’s a talented wrestler who is only guilty by association and that isn’t a fair reason to hurt his career.
What do you think of WWE’s decision? Who will be the next champions? Let us know in the comments below.
