NXT TakeOver: The End Preview: NXT Tag Team Champions American Alpha vs. The Revival

Jason Jordan & Chad Gable defend their titles against a furious Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder on June 8.

American Alpha will face their first major test as NXT Tag Team Champions at NXT TakeOver: The End…, when they defend against the team they dethroned in Dallas, The Revival.

Since losing the titles in the Lone Star State, Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder have been in a surly mood. The Revival have demolished every team in their path, including The Hype Bros. Dawson & Wilder made it clear that there is no stopping them until they regain the NXT Tag Team Championship.

However, Jason Jordan & Chad Gable are not letting The Revival get into their heads. American Alpha has looked nearly unstoppable since capturing the titles. And when The Revival came out to take a closer look at their match on May 11, Jordan & Gable remained focused and went on to finish off a dominating victory. American Alpha dared Dash & Dawson to get in the ring and fight, but The Revival backed off, saying that they would wait until they got their guaranteed rematch.

The Revival won’t have to wait much longer, as NXT General Manager William Regal announced that the two teams will square off for the titles at TakeOver. Will the desperate duo of Dash & Dawson reclaim the coveted titles, or can American Alpha show why they’re the top dogs in NXT? Find out at NXT TakeOver: The End… on June 8, live and only on WWE Network!

WWE.com: American Alpha Talk Championship Gold

From reluctant partners to NXT Tag Team Champions,Chad Gable & Jason Jordan reflect on their path to glory.

“All of my hard work, the injuries and surgeries I suffered over the last five years, everything that I sacrificed and underwent to stick with it, it all finally paid off,” Jason Jordan revealed as he reflected on his and Chad Gable’s emotional NXT Tag Team Championship victory at NXT Takeover: Dallas.

Perhaps the victory for the team known as American Alpha has taught all of us a lesson in irony. Last July, the two Superstars formed what many thought would be a tentative partnership, at best. After all, it was Gable who spent weeks lobbying to be Jordan’s tag partner, much to Jordan’s chagrin.

“I take blame for the lukewarm start, because I was stubborn and wanted a tag partner that I handpicked myself,” Jordan confessed to WWE.com. “When I got over my ego, I realized that I had a potentially great tag partner, and he was begging for a chance to prove it. Once we officially teamed up, Chad and I had chemistry like no other.”

The chemistry that Jordan is referring to might be rooted in both men’s impressive amateur wrestling backgrounds. Between Jordan’s well-documented success at Indiana University and Chad Gable’s path toward competing at the Olympics, it seemed — on paper — that Gable & Jordan were destined for greatness. Gable credits their “warrior mentality” for the championship success of American Alpha.

“That warrior’s mentality comes from amateur wrestling,” he said. “We’ve experienced a lot of the exact same highs and lows, in competitive sports and in life, so it just works out that we are on the same page about most things.”

Being on the same page would pay dividends when Gable & Jordan defeated The Revival to capture the NXT Tag Team Championship in front of a raucous crowd during WrestleMania Week in Dallas. The energy of the moment was certainly not lost on Jordan.

“The crowd reactions have meant the world to us,” he said. “We understand how difficult it can sometimes be to earn the respect and win over our NXT Universe. That’s what made it so special and emotional when they chanted, ‘You deserve it!’”

Following the victory, both men sat alone in the locker room, not just soaking up the win but appreciating the perseverance that went into it. For Gable, that moment provided an opportunity to display some humility toward his partner.

“It was hard to try to settle down after being in front of that many people, but I also wanted to take the time and let Jason know how proud I was of him,” Gable said. “He’s been here grinding for so long, trying different things, different partners. I wanted to let him know what an honor it was to be standing with him when it finally culminated and paid off.”

Continually evolving their in-ring game plan, the NXT Tag Team Champions — who credit past duos like The Steiner Brothers, The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express and The Rockers, among others, as having a major influence on their style — are not resting on their laurels. Don’t let their success fool you; Jordan has made it clear that he and Gable understand how the road ahead only gets harder and the expectations will only reach new heights from here.

“Our path to the championship has taught us the importance of sticking to your guns no matter how difficult the road may be,” Jordan emphasized, “and that hard work and dedication will allow you to live your dreams!”

Chad Gable (NXT Tag Team Champion)

“All Along the Watchtower” by Jimi Hendrix. It’s hard for me to admit someone did one of Bob Dylan’s (my favorite artist of all time) songs better than he did, but even Dylan himself said that Hendrix did the definitive version of the song.

NXT Tag Team Champions American Alpha def. Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady (Non-Title Match)

Two of NXT’s most popular teams clashed in a friendly battle to kick off the show. Last week, Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady asked the NXT Tag Team Champions for this non-title showdown, wanting to see what American Alpha is all about. Amore found out firsthand after the bell, as Gable took him down to the mat with ease. Gable and Jordan quickly grabbed a hold of Enzo’s arm, tagging in and out to work over their brash opponent.

The scrappy Amore finally slipped away from the champions and tagged Big Cass into the bout. Cassady locked up with Jordan and used his size and strength advantage to take control of the match. The teams seemed to reach a stalemate after Gable and Amore knocked heads in the corner, but Enzo stumbled back into his corner and brought Big Cass back in. The experienced duo looked to have the champions on the ropes, but the wily Gable evaded a splash from the 7-footer and tagged in a fired-up Jordan. Big Cass took a bullet for Enzo, diving in the path of a spear from Jordan, but that left the New Jersey native alone in the ring with the champions. American Alpha connected with Grand Amplitude to earn a big victory over Raw and SmackDown’s newest Superstars.

Earlier inside the empty Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, Jason Jordan and Chad Gable reminisce on their win at NXT TakeOver: Dallas, where they became the NXT Tag Team Champions for the very first time. The team of Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady drop by to congratulate American Alpha on their title win, saying that it’s great to see the titles around someone else’s waists. Enzo and Big Cass then acknowledge the fact that even though they have been in NXT for the longest time, they have never had the opportunity to have a tag team match with American Alpha. Gable and Jordan, accept the challenge and the match is made official later in the night. Next week, it’ll be American Alpha vs. Enzo and Cass in a non-title match!
