Stardust’s evil alliance with henchmen The Ascension will be put the test when The Cosmic Wasteland battles Neville & The Lucha Dragons this Sunday on the Night of Champions Kickoff.
The Man That Gravity Forgot forged a pact with masked marvels Sin Cara & Kalisto after helping them fight off an attack by Stardust, Viktor & Konnor on the Sept. 10 edition of SmackDown. Just the week prior, it was Neville who found himself the target of a 3-on-1 beating by The Superstar from the Fifth Dimension and his sinister cohorts.
If it’s true that familiarity breeds contempt, the Kickoff’s Six-Man Tag Team Match stands to be one of the most bristly contests of the night. Neville and Stardust have dueled for weeks on end, and when it looked like the former NXT Champion had finally gotten the better of Stardust — teaming with “Arrow” star Stephen Amell to defeat Stardust & King Barrett at SummerSlam — the intergalactic Superstar changed tactics, betraying Barrett and beefing up his ranks with the potent addition of Konnor & Viktor.
The Lucha Dragons and The Ascension aren’t strangers to each other, either. Last December, the high-flying pair of Sin Cara & Kalisto knocked off The Ascension to win the NXT Tag Team Titles and end Konnor & Viktor’s era of dominance. With that memory no doubt fresh in their minds and the diabolical Stardust as their guide, the WWE Universe might just see a darker and more dangerous side of Viktor & Konnor than ever before.
What will happen when The Cosmic Wasteland faces foes worthy of their steel?
