- Above is the latest episode of WWE Playback, featuring The Usos watching their WWE Tag Team Title defense against The Wyatt Family at WWE Money In the Bank 2014.
- As noted, last night's WWE NXT episode saw NXT Tag Team Champions The Viking Raiders try to relinquish the titles because they are now on the RAW brand. This led to The Street Profits challenging them to a match that ended in a No Contest due to interference from The Forgotten Sons, and then the team of Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch. WWE has confirmed today that the titles are now vacant.
NXT General Manager William Regal will be making an announcement on the titles during next Wednesday's NXT episode on the WWE Network. It's believed that the "Takeover: XXV" event on June 1 from Bridgeport, CT will feature a Fatal 4 Way for the vacant titles with The Undisputed Era, The Forgotten Sons, The Street Profits and Lorcan & Burch. Below is WWE's announcement confirming that the titles are now vacant:
NXT Tag Team Titles vacated following controversial title clash
The NXT Tag Team Championship has been vacated following the controversial ending of last night's title match between The Viking Raiders and The Street Profits, WWE.com has learned.
Additionally, NXT General Manager William Regal is prepared to make an announcement regarding the future of the titles on next week's episode of NXT on WWE Network.
The Viking Raiders entered last night as the reigning champions, but after declaring that no team would be able to defeat them, Ivar & Erik told Regal they would relinquish the titles. Taking exception to The Viking Raiders' brash words, Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins then issued a challenge, leading to an impromptu championship main event. At the height of the battle, The Forgotten Sons barged in and attacked The Viking Raiders, causing the match to be thrown out. The carnage continued after the bell, with Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch joining the three teams in a wild brawl.
Don't miss Regal's all-important announcement about the NXT Tag Team Titles when NXT streams Wednesday at 8/7 C, exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network.
