War Machine tore it up on the independent wrestling circuit for a number of years. The team of Hanson and Raymond Rowe became one of the most hard-hitting and dominating tag teams in the business. WWE officially announced that the pair had signed with NXT back in January, but they have yet to compete in an actual match. However, the two made a surprise appearance at an NXT live event in Sebring, Florida and they cut a promo on the NXT tag team division. War Machine had all of their usual gear on when they came out and the two then put every tag team on NXT on notice. It shouldn’t be long before the tag team officially arrives on the NXT roster.

The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic rolls on in NXT with just one more first round match to go. Next week’s show was set to feature a match featuring Danny Burch & Oney Lorcan taking on Tyler Bate and Trent Seven, but unfortunately, that match now appears to be off the table. WWE recently posted a video on their YouTube channel wherein Tyler Bate confirmed that he has tweaked his knee and was thereby not cleared by WWE doctor to participate in the tournament. The Wrestling Observer did report that Bate suffered a minor knee injury earlier this week, so it seems that he and Seven truly are being taken out of this year’s tournament. No word on who will replace ‘Mustache Mountain’ as of now.
The Undertaker has been wrestling in WWE for over 25 years, making him one of the longest-tenured WWE Superstars of all time. While he does not compete full time anymore, he does still wrestle each year at WrestleMania, and it looks like “The Deadman” could be on his way back very soon to face John Cena at this year’s event in New Orleans, Louisiana. Until then, WWE has decided to release some of Undertaker’s rarest matches on the WWE Network and on YouTube. One recent match uploaded to online is a casket match between “The Phenom” and Vader from a live event in Madison Square Garden in 1997. Feel free to check out the match posted down below:
