WWE News: NXT Tag Team Titles Are Vacant Due to Injury to Danny Burch, More Info on NXT This Wednesday

An injury has caused a title change in NXT. Here’s the story from WWE.com and NXT General Manager William Regal.

NXT General Manager William Regal has vacated the NXT Tag Team Titles from Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch due to injury.

X-rays confirmed a separated shoulder for Burch, an injury suffered in last week’s title defense against Finn B├ílor and Karrion Kross.

Regal said he will address the matter further Wednesday night on NXT at 8/7 C on USA Network.

Lorcan & Burch had held the titles for 152 days since defeating Breezango last October.

Here is Regal’s tweet about it.

The injury happened when Karrion Kross did a double suplex on Lorcan and Burch at the same time.

TJR Thoughts: Injuries suck, but it’s part of the wrestling business. This will probably mean a team like Grizzled Young Veterans or MSK winning the titles soon. It depends on if MSK’s Wes Lee is ready to wrestle by the time they get to Takeover in a few weeks.
