The Rascalz debut on WWE NXT, get new in-ring names
The team formerly known as The Rascalz made their debut on NXT tonight and advanced to the next round of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.
In their first match for NXT, Dezmond Xavier & Zachary Wentz defeated Isaiah “Swerve” Scott & Jake Atlas in the first round of the Dusty Classic tonight. Xavier & Wentz have also gotten new in-ring names. They’re using the name MSK as a team, Xavier is now going by the name Wes Lee, and Wentz is now Nash Carter.
MSK will face either Killian Dain & Drake Maverick or Curt Stallion & August Grey in the second round of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.
MSK’s old tag team name was referenced on commentary during tonight’s match. Vic Joseph said these rascals are high flying and exciting.
It was announced last month that Xavier & Wentz had signed with WWE and reported to the WWE Performance Center. Trey Miguel, who was also part of The Rascalz, hasn’t signed with WWE.
The Rascalz’s farewell to Impact Wrestling aired in November, with Rich Swann & Miguel defeating Xavier & Wentz.
With PWG not running any shows in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Xavier & Wentz never lost the PWG Tag Team titles.
