Grizzled Young Veterans set to clash with Killian Dain & Drake Maverick
The Grizzled Young Veterans are likely unhappy after coming up short in the Dusty Classic Finals. They’ll look to channel their aggression against Killian Dain & Drake Maverick this week on NXT.
Zack Gibson & James Drake returned to the tournament finals for a second straight year, though they could not overcome MSK at NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day after a scintillating, back-and-forth encounter.
Dain & Drake ran into the same buzzsaw last month, falling to MSK in the quarterfinals.
Which team is poised to get back on track with a victory?
