NXT TakeOver: Dallas Preview: The Revival vs. American Alpha (NXT Tag Team Championship)

The red-hot American Alpha challenges the ruthless NXT Tag Team Champions at TakeOver: Dallas.

The Revival’s quest to prove that they’re the greatest tag team on the planet runs through NXT TakeOver: Dallas and the red-hot No. 1 contenders, as Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder defend the NXT Tag Team Championship against American Alpha.

Dash & Dawson forced their way into the title picture last fall with a brutal attack on Colin Cassady that put the 7-footer on the shelf with a sprained MCL. The Revival’s precision in dishing out punishment earned them the NXT Tag Team Titles when they defeated The Vaudevillains in brutal fashion just weeks later. Since then, The Revival has held onto the titles by any means necessary. The team fights with a simple game plan: no flips, just fists. So far, it’s worked for them in spades.

However, standing in their way is American Alpha. The team of Jason Jordan & Chad Gable has taken the division by storm since joining forces last spring. Gable, a 2012 Olympian in Greco-Roman wrestling, is a true mat wizard and can take down any opponent in the blink of an eye. Jordan, a standout wrestler at Indiana University, is the powerhouse of the team and can suplex his rivals around the ring with ease.

American Alpha have been united in their goal of capturing the NXT Tag Team Titles since pairing up, but have made their case even stronger in recent weeks. Jordan & Gable have taken on several former NXT Tag Team Champions and walked out victorious, defeating the likes of Blake & Murphy, The Vaudevillains and the longest-reigning champions in history, The Ascension. American Alpha once again thwarted The Vaudevillains on March 16 to earn the right to challenge The Revival.

Can American Alpha prove that they are NXT’s top team, or will The Revival keep on rolling? Find out at NXT TakeOver: Dallas, live Friday, April 1, at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT, only on WWE Network!

American Alpha def. The Vaudevillains (NXT Tag Team Title No. 1 Contender’s Match)
NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival were keeping a close eye on this battle to determine their next challengers. Simon Gotch struggled in the early moments of the match, quickly falling victim to the mat wizardry of Chad Gable. American Alpha seemed to be on fire, but The Vaudevillains quickly isolated Gable and sought to wear down the Olympian in their half of the ring.

Gable sent Gotch crashing neck-first into the ropes, giving him the opening to tag in Jason Jordan, who dashed into the ring and tossed both Vaudevillains around with a series of huge suplexes. Gotch prevented American Alpha from hitting English with Grand Amplitude, ensuring the bout would go on. Jordan neutralized Gotch at ringside with a suplex onto the arena floor. That left English alone against American Alpha, who kept him off-balance with blind tags, setting him up for Grand Amplitude to win the match and earn the right to challenge The Revival at NXT TakeOver: Dallas!

NXT Preview: American Alpha face The Vaudevillains in an NXT Tag Team Title No. 1 Contenders’ Match

Two of NXT’s top tag teams collide this Wednesday with an NXT Tag Team Title Match hanging in the balance, as American Alpha clashes with The Vaudevillains in a No. 1 Contenders’ Match.

Aiden English & Simon Gotch have turned over a new leaf in recent weeks, with the former NXT Tag Team Champions ditching their upbeat, spirited attitude for a scowling, vicious aggression. It has brought The Vaudevillains success of late, as the ruthless duo knocked off The Hype Bros in tag team competition.

However, The Vaudevillains’ road to a championship match must go through the red-hot American Alpha. Jason Jordan & Chad Gable have gone on a tear in the tag team division, defeating some of NXT’s most decorated tandems, including Blake & Murphy and the longest-reigning Tag Team Champions in NXT history, The Ascension. In fact, it was after a loss to American Alpha last December that English & Gotch started to rediscover their ruthless roots.

Will The Vaudevillains’ hardnosed aggression get them another championship opportunity, or will American Alpha prove that they’re worthy of challenging NXT’s top dogs? Find out this Wednesday at 8/7 C, only on WWE Network!

American Alpha def. Blake & Murphy
After falling to the red-hot American Alpha last month, former NXT Tag Team Champions Blake & Murphy were out to prove that their loss was a fluke. Chad Gable toyed with Murphy in the opening moments of the match, taking him down to the canvas easily before handing him off to Jason Jordan. The former champions tried to out-grapple Gable, but the former Olympian was always one step ahead of them and forcing Blake & Murphy to retreat.

Nothing Blake & Murphy did fazed American Alpha, as nearly everything they attempted to do ended up with the mat masters wrenching away at their limbs. The former champions finally took control of the match after a double-team maneuver in which Murphy nearly took off Gable’s head off a clothesline. Blake & Murphy tried to wear Gable down, but the crafty Olympian was able to slip out of their grasp and tag in his partner. Jordan tossed Blake & Murphy around the ring with ease before spearing Blake and connecting with Grand Amplitude to earn the victory. American Alpha is on a roll as of late in NXT. Could the NXT Tag Team Championship be in their future?

WWE.COM: Who are some of the NXT competitors you worked with?

MIKE QUACKENBUSH: One of the best things I got to do was spend some one-on-one time with specific talent that wanted to develop certain areas of their game. There was nothing I enjoyed more than having an hour in the ring with Chad Gable, who is simply one of the most outstanding performers I’ve ever been able to share a ring with. To trade holds and moves, to teach him and learn from him was such a pleasure.

American Alpha, Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady def. Blake & Murphy and Dash & Dawson
NXT kicked off in major fashion, as four of NXT’s best teams collided in a huge Eight-Man Tag Team Match. Scott Dawson tried to match mat wrestling ability with former Olympian Chad Gable, but found himself scrambling for the ropes. The NXT Tag Team Champions and Blake & Murphy then attemped to beat Gable down 4-on 1, but ended up engaging all four of their opponents in a brawl inside the ring.

Dash & Dawson distracted Gable to regain control of the bout for their team. The four ruthless competitors wore Gable down, making quick tags to keep a fresh man in the ring and keep the Olympian from reaching his partners. A nasty collision between Dash Wilder and Gable led to the American Alpha member finally getting to his corner and tagging in Jason Jordan. Jordan and Colin Cassady, the powerhouses of their respective teams, bulldozed over their opponents in a fury.

American Alpha nearly had the bout won after hitting Grand Amplitude on Dawson, only for their pin attempt to be broken up by Wilder. Fortunately, Enzo & Big Cass were ready to follow up with the Rocket Launcher to pick up the victory.
