Where do The Viking Raiders, and the NXT Tag Team Titles, go from here?

NXT Tag Team Champion The Viking Raiders’ status in the black-and-gold brand has been the subject of much speculation since Erik & Ivar debuted on Raw. This week on WWE Network, the champions will make their booming voices heard when they appear live at Full Sail.

Although the bearded brawlers have already made their presence felt in a big way on Monday nights, they still hold the top prize in NXT’s Tag Team division — a fact that none of NXT’s other duos has forgotten. If you need evidence, look no further than The Forgotten Sons’ ruthless guerrilla attack on The Viking Raiders last week, which showed that Erik & Ivar are squarely in the crosshairs of The Savages of NXT.

Can Jessie fog The Vision?

Vanessa Borne and Aliyah might consider everyone else in the NXT a “lower,” but don’t expect Borne’s opponent this week on NXT TV — 2018 Mae Young Classic competitor Jessie — to co-sign that statement.

Armed with world-class athleticism and a contagious sense of joy, the up-and-coming Jessie has been a favorite of the NXT Universe any time she’s competed, including during the recent Women’s Battle Royal on WWE Worlds Collide. However, she is also in pursuit of something other than NXT fan approval, namely, a big win on WWE Network. Will Jessie hit the jackpot this week, or can The Vision, whose ruthlessness and in-ring repertoire seems to grow by the day, rain on her parade?

“Limitless” Keith Lee returns to action

It’s been a while since the NXT Universe has basked in the glory of Keith Lee, but that all changes this week on WWE Network when The Limitless Superstar returns to action. After an injury pushed Lee to the sideline for weeks, the 320-pound hybrid athlete — whose absurd combination of size, speed and agility has blown minds — is back at full strength and looking to make up for lost time.
