Check it out.

NXT Tag Team Championships: Imperium (Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner) (C) vs Breezango (Tyler Breeze & Fandango)

NXT’s tag team division is in an interesting spot as they deal with the recent departures of top teams as well as absences caused by the coronavirus pandemic.  Two weeks ago Breezango made their surprise return to NXT as part of a triple threat number one contenders tag team match.  They came away with the win and now look to capture some elusive tag team gold.  Imperium, on the other hand, will look to bring their factions dominance to another brand and keep the titles for as long as possible.
