Killian Dain And Drake Maverick Earn NXT Tag Title Opportunity

Killian Dain & Drake Maverick

Killian Dain and Drake Maverick have defeated Breezango to earn an opportunity at the NXT Tag Team Championships.

Following an action-packed bout on the kick-off show for night two of NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver, Maverick eventually picked up the pin for his team.

Killian Dain and Drake Maverick initially joined forces towards the end of 2020, before entering the 2021 Dusty Classic. The duo progressed through the first round but were defeated by MSK in round two.

Dain and Maverick will now have an opportunity to take revenge for that defeat, when they take on the new NXT Tag Team Champions MSK.

The winners of the the Men’s 2021 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic won the vacant championships at night one of NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver. Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan had been forced to give up the belts following Burch sustaining a serious shoulder injury.

This meant that the titles were up for grabs at TakeOver with MSK denying both the Grizzled Young Veterans and Legado Del Fantasma.

In an action packed contest, Grizzled Young Veterans took control early on, before the two high-flying teams were able to up the pace. The bout featured numerous high-risk dives and stunning tandem offence. MSK picked up the win with a Float over Neckbreaker, Fireman’s Carry combo with neither rival team able to respond.
