The duo formerly known as Zachary Wentz and Dezmond Xavier made their WWE debuts on tonight’s edition of NXT. They took on Isaiah “Swerve” Scott and Jake Atlas in the first round of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Wentz and Xavier are no longer donning their pre-WWE names or team name as they are now going by ‘MSK’, Nash Carter (Wentz) and Wes Lee (Xavier). Wentz and Xavier’s signings were officially announced in early December.
They picked up a win over Scott and Atlas and are moving on to the next round and they’ll take on the winners of Curt Stallion and August Grey versus Killian Dain and Drake Maverick.
