NXT General Manager William Regal today confirmed that the NXT Tag Team Championship has been vacated following an injury to Danny Burch.
Burch seemingly injured his shoulder last week in a match pitting he and his partner Oney Lorcan against NXT Champion Finn Balor and his TakeOver: Stand & Deliver challenger Karrion Kross with the titles on the line.
With rumours swirling that the injury would lead to a lengthy layoff, this now seems to be the case.
Burch and Lorcan won their first titles in October 2020 with a win over Breezango. They had been due to defend their titles against the winners of the NXT Men’s Dusty Classic 2021, MSK with this defence seemingly set for TakeOver next month. These plans are now clearly off the table.
On his social post, Regal promised an update on the situation on this week’s episode of NXT.
