During NXT tonight, they sprung a “Mystery team” tease on us for a match later in the show. This mystery team would be in a triple threat match alongside Bobby Fish & Roderick Strong and Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch. The winner of the match would earn a tag title shot against Imperium.
That mystery team was Breezango, dressing up like astronauts, perhaps in honor of the manned Space X flight from this weekend.
This is a bit of a surprise because it was just six months ago that we learned Fandango tore his Ulnar Collateral Ligament (UCL) and would need Tommy John surgery, a surgery no baseball fan wants to hear their favorite pitcher needs. Those surgeries could keep people out of action from anywhere from 6 - 18 months.
However Beth Phoenix informed us that Dango forewent surgery and opted for rehab instead, which makes sense given the man is 38 years old and likely wants to maximize the athletic years he has left.
His quick return was rewarded as Breezango picked up the win in a fun triple threat match. They had a little help from Dexter Lumis, who spent time earlier in the night drawing a picture, who was watching from the crowd and distracted Fish & Strong, allowing Fandango to put the match away with the top rope leg drop.
They’ll face Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel for the tag titles in the future.
