Nathan Frazer will be back behind the news desk this week as he hosts the second edition of his Hard-Hitting Home Truths show.
Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen will reunite as tag team partners for the first time since their recent split, which didn’t last long. Their opponents will be Hank Walker and Tank Ledger.
Tyler Bate and Charlie Dempsey will also lock up this week, continuing a recent program that includes NXT North American Champion Wes Lee and Drew Gulak. WWE noted that Lee will be in Bate’s corner, while Gulak will be at ringside for Dempsey.
