WWE NXT preview, July 11, 2018: Can Bate & Seven stay atop the mountain as NXT Tag Team Champions?
NXT Tag Team Champions Moustache Mountain defend their titles against Undisputed ERA, NXT Champion Aleister Black addresses his upcoming title defense against Tommaso Ciampa and more tonight on WWE NXT.
Moustache Mountain and Undisputed ERA collide in NXT Tag Team Title rematch
Following their NXT Tag Team Championship victory that had the world talking, Moustache Mountain will defend their newly won titles for the first time against the team they bested to obtain them: Undisputed ERA. Wasting no time invoking their rematch clause, Roderick Strong & Kyle O’Reilly will take on Tyler Bate & Trent Seven next Wednesday on WWE NXT. Commenting on the upcoming title defense, Bate & Seven were clearly not too pleased after Undisputed ERA accused them of being flukes and jokes after their victory at the NXT U.K. Championship special. The duo also seemed delighted by the idea of defeating Strong & O’Reilly in the States after beating them in their home country of England.
Will Bate & Seven silence Undisputed ERA by defeating them in this high-stakes rematch? Or will Undisputed ERA become only the second team in NXT history to capture the NXT Tag Team Titles twice? Find out tonight on WWE NXT.
NXT Champion Aleister Black appears live on black-and-yellow brand
Now that Aleister Black will defend his NXT Championship against Tommaso Ciampa on July 25, The Dutch Destroyer will appear live on WWE NXT to address his hotly anticipated showdown against The Blackheart.
With tempers flaring between the Superstars on social media and during their June 27 confrontation on WWE NXT, what will Black have to say as he approaches perhaps the most unpredictable title defense of his reign? And could The Blackheart make his presence felt, forcing Black to once again come face-to-face with the self-proclaimed “devil”?
Adam Cole and Danny Burch battle it out for their respective squadrons
Though Danny Burch’s tag team partner Oney Lorcan is on the shelf due to an injury suffered at TakeOver: Chicago II (Burch told Cathy Kelley that Lorcan is looking at three months on the sideline), the British Superstar did not back down when Undisputed ERA attempted to shame him in the wake of Burch & Lorcan’s loss to Roderick Strong & Kyle O’Reilly in Chi-Town. NXT North American Champion Adam Cole took offense to Burch reminding Undisputed ERA of their own recent struggles (including Strong & O’Reilly’s NXT Tag Team Title loss in London and Burch pinning O’Reilly in six-man tag team action weeks back), and he accused Burch & Lorcan of having inflated egos. That prompted Burch to challenge The Panama City Playboy to a match, and though Cole scoffed at the suggestion, NXT General Manager William Regal did not, scheduling the match for next week. Will Cole’s cockiness come back to bite him against the hard-hitting Burch? Tune in tonight to the award-winning WWE Network to find out.
Sane and Borne take their war of words to the ring
After Vanessa Borne called out Kairi Sane two weeks ago, Sane came right back at Borne, telling reporters that Vanessa should focus less on talking and more on fighting. She’ll get her chance next week, as the two NXT standouts will square off. With both Superstars looking to build a claim to an NXT Women’s Title opportunity, a win in this bout will be crucial. Who will prevail? Find out tonight.
