Just weeks before TakeOver, NXT’s tag team division is in disarray.
GM William Regal stripped Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch of the NXT tag titles on Tuesday...after official word came down that Burch suffered a separated shoulder during the main event of last Wednesday’s NXT.
Regal is promising to address the tag title situation on tonight’s NXT.
Meanwhile, Lorcan is blaming Karrion Kross for Burch’s injury...and those two will meet tonight.
Regal is also promising to address the feud between Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly...NXT’s social media shared surveillance video Tuesday...showing Cole attacking O’Reilly at Kyle’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu studio.
Also tonight, Shotzi Blackheart and Ember Moon defend the NXT Women’s Tag Titles against Aliyah and Jessi Kamea.
The NXT UK Champion WALTER in a non-title match against Drake Maverick.
One of WWE’s Cruiserweight Champions Jordan Devlin has a non-title match against Kushida.
Plus, Io Shirai and Zoey Stark team up against Raquel Gonzalez and Dakota Kai.
Batista confirmed Tuesday he will NOT be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame during WrestleMania week. Batista was announced as part of last year’s class. But he tweeted Tuesday that “previous obligations” will prevent him from attending the ceremony. He said he still plans to accept his induction at a future date.
An injury to Dragon Lee is forcing Ring Of Honor to shake up the card for its 19th Anniversary pay per view coming up on Friday.
ROH announced Tuesday that Lee needed surgery for a ruptured eardrum. That prevents him from traveling by plane.
As a result, Kenny King will now step in to defend Lee’s ROH TV Title against HOT SAUCE Tracy Williams.
Bestia Del Ring will take Lee’s place alongside King to defend the ROH Tag Titles against Williams and Rhett Titus.
An ankle injury will keep PAC from wrestling on tonight’s AEW Dynamite. Taking his place will be Laredo Kid, teaming with the Lucha Bros. against the Young Bucks and Brandon Cutler.

Plus, Nyla Rose vs. Tay Conti.
On last night’s Dark…a rare defense of the FTW Championship. Brian Cage beat Brandon Cutler.

JD Drake pinned Fuego Del Sol...and Ashley Vox submitted Alex Gracia.
Hardcore Justice will NOT run head to head against WrestleMania on Saturday, April 10th. The Impact Plus exclusive show will begin earlier in the day - at 3PM Eastern.
