– A three-way tag team feud kicked off during this week’s WWE NXT episode with The Grizzled Young Veterans (James Drake, Zack Gibson), Ever-Rise (Matt Martel, Chase Parker), and Imperium (Marcel Barthel, Fabian Aichner).
Last week’s NXT show saw Drake and Gibson return to the brand and attack Ever-Rise declaring that they are back to take over the tag team division. This week’s show saw Drake and Gibson come to the ring for a match with Martel and Parker, but before they could get to the ring Ever-Rise was attacked from behind by Barthel and Aichner. Imperium took out Ever-Rise and traded words with The Grizzled Young Vets, leading to a tag team match. The lengthy back & forth match ended in a No Contest after Ever-Rise came back out and attacked both teams.
Martel and Parker then left the arena in a car before the show was over, but told McKenzie Mitchell that Imperium and The Vets got a taste of their own medicine, and that Ever-Rise rules. You can see a clip from the match above.
