Takeover 8 Tag Title Match

Winning the NXT Tag Team Championship won’t be Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady’s only motivation when they face titleholders Dash Wilder & Scott Dawson in a title match at NXT TakeOver: London. Though a title win would mark a milestone for the longtime friends and tag partners, Amore & Cassady are every bit as interested in scoring retribution as they are in the tag team gold.

Amore & Cassady already knows what it means to defeat Dash & Dawson; they did just that on the Oct. 21 edition of WWE NXT, surprising the rugged duo with a pinfall win. In response, a disgruntled Dash & Dawson brutally blindsided the team a week later. During the blitz, Cassady suffered an MCL sprain and bone bruise in his knee that kept him on the sidelines for more than a month. While Cassady recuperated, Dash & Dawson quickly ascended in NXT’s packed tag division, dethroning The Vaudevillains for the twin titles.

On the Nov. 25 edition of NXT, Amore & Cassady finally returned with a bang, going after Dash & Dawson after the champions’ successful title defense against The Vaudevillains. Now, Dash & Dawson and Amore & Cassady are fated for a long-awaited rematch. Which team will stand tall?

Dash & Dawson rank among NXT’s toughest, most rough-and-tumble throwbacks. They shun fan approval, instead focusing on new ways to remorselessly wrench foes’ knees and, in turn, enlarge their own bank accounts. Though Amore & Cassady lack the champions’ methodical callousness, the popular team has made the most of their straight-ahead fisticuffs, and they never back down from a fight.

Which team will help usher in a new era of tag team wrestling in NXT? Will Dash & Dawson clamp down on their challengers, maybe even worsening Cassady’s knee in the process? Or will the challengers, seeing red, unseat the titleholders?
