Former NXT Champions Sami Zayn & Neville will battle the most decorated team in sports-entertainment history, The Dudley Boyz, on this Sunday’s SummerSlam Kickoff.
Associates dating back to their days on the independent circuit, The Underdog from the Underground and The Man That Gravity Forgot have forged a thrilling alliance from time to time, both in WWE and NXT, despite proving themselves primarily in singles competition. With kindred daredevil styles inside the ring, Zayn & Neville not only pose a dangerous threat to the best of teams, they also embody the energizing spirit of WWE’s New Era.
Yet, can their makeshift alliance, exciting though it is, make a dent against the unparalleled experience of 10-time Tag Team Champions Bubba Ray & D-Von Dudley? The legendary brawlers form Dudleyville boast a distinct size and strength advantage over their opponents, and are likely eager to reassert themselves as a dominant force in the Tag Team division at the expense of Zayn & Neville.
Will the speed, agility and desire of Zayn & Neville win out, or will The Dudleys’ bruising power pave the way to victory in Brooklyn, N.Y.?
