New and new champions. Titles are one of the most important things in wrestling and that has been the case in NXT since its inception. NXT has managed to make its titles feel as important as anything else and that is something that has done a lot of good for the promotion. A title change is a big deal and that is the case again, as some new champions have been crowned.
This week’s NXT featured a gauntlet match to crown new NXT Tag Team Champions. Pretty Deadly, in their NXT debut match, won the five team match, last eliminating the Creed Brothers. The other teams involved were Legado del Fantasma, Josh Briggs/Brooks Jensen and Grayson Waller/Sanga. The titles were vacated after MSK were stripped of the titles due to Nash Carter being released.
Opinion: NXT had to put the titles on someone and this is one of the best calls that they could have made. Pretty Deadly did well during their NXT UK Tag Team Title reign and it makes sense to put the NXT titles on them as well. I like what we are getting to see here and now we could be in for a good reign from the new champions. The Creed Brothers are going to win the titles sooner or later, but this is an interesting way to go on the way there.
What do you think of the title change? How will Pretty Deadly do with the titles? Let us know in the comments below.
