WWE NXT: April 11, 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana
The War Raiders vs. The Street Profits never began
The highly anticipated arrival of Hanson and Rowe had finally happened, and The War Raiders crashed onto the tag team scene in chaotic fashion. A scheduled bout with The Street Profits was set to take place in New Orleans, only for it to never even make it past the opening bell when the two new arrivals annihilated their adversaries before their debut match could begin. The beastly duo brutally disposed of Montez Ford before isolating Angelo Dawkins and delivering their signature Fallout, laying out their competition.
The NXT tag team division has been put on notice, and The War Raiders are most definitely here to make an impact.

In an emotional interview with Cathy Kelly, the beloved superstar revealed his plan to be the man who finally dethrones El Ídolo.
Roderick Strong officially aligns himself with The Undisputed ERA
The Messiah of the Backbreaker quickly became The Saviour of The Undisputed ERA at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans - a swerve that nobody saw coming. After assisting Kyle O'Reilly and Bobby Fish to retain their NXT Tag Team Championships, Roderick Strong appeared to side with the dominant trio, and it was all officially confirmed this week on NXT as he stood beside his new-found allies to declare to the NXT Universe that the old phrase is very much true - "If you can't beat them, join them". Strong's attitude had taken a sharp turn, and with his new colours donned in the form of black and yellow, will Roderick Strong be yet another dominant factor in The Undisputed ERA's arsenal?
NXT Women's Champion Shayna Baszler def. Kairi Sane
An epic conclusion to a heated rivalry between two of the top female superstars in NXT. Having secured the NXT Women's Championship at WrestleMania Axxess after defeating Peyton Royce, Shayna Baszler looked to be on a tear, and it didn't stop with her title victory as she finally closed the book on her feud with the winner of the 2017 Mae Young Classic, forcing her into submission with the Kirifuda Clutch.
This dominant female may very well be unstoppable, and with the Championship around her waist, she's the woman to beat.
