According to Reddit user MetsFan4Ever, a verified WWE insider, the reason why the Lucha Dragons dropped the NXT Tag Team Titles is because WWE wants to try pushing Kalisto as a singles wrestler.
With Rey Mysterio on his way out of WWE, the company is trying very hard to find the next Latin star, and Kalisto is reportedly being tested out for the role.
While Mysterio wrestled with a mask, WWE reportedly decided not to go that route with Kalisto, and instead have tried him out with a gay hairstylist gimmick. Kalisto reportedly did very well in the role, and it’s possible we could see him continue the gimmick on TV as opposed to his current Kalisto character.
