WWE has not revealed who will be wrestling for the vacant titles on Tuesday or how those teams will be defined. MSK joined the WWE and debuted in 2021 after signing contracts in December of 2020. They won the 2021 men’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic and had an ongoing story throughout the early part of NXT 2.0, in which they were in search of their Shaman. The Shaman turned out to be Riddle. MSK were formerly known as The Rascalz in Impact Wrestling.
Nash Carter was released from WWE after allegations that he was physically and emotionally abusing his wife. WWE has not commented publicly on those allegations or specifically addressed the release.
