A popular WWE star has talked about the NXT team MSK, praising the group for their charisma and in-ring ability.
At NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day, recent signees Wes Lee and Nash Carter of MSK won the 2021 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Defeating Grizzled Young Veterans, MSK have became #1 contenders to the NXT Tag Team Championship.
One wrestler who celebrated MSK’s victory was Matt Riddle. Speaking with ViBe & Wrestling, Riddle couldn’t say enough nice things about NXT’s latest top prospects.
Noting that he felt sorry for Zack Gibson and James Drake during the Dusty Cup Final, Riddle praised the duo for being as entertaining as they are wrestling savvy.
Here is the full quote:
“MSK, they are awesome. I know those guys, I wrestle them in the past and they are hard workers, they get it, they are entertaining,” Riddle said. “I mean did you see those guys eating pop corn the other day? They are very charismatic. They don’t care what you think about them and they delivered. Honestly I felt bad for Grizzle Young Vets because they got to the finals again and they didn’t win.
“But what a great start for MSK, winning the Dusty Cup on their first time in the tournament. I am happy for them. They are a couple of good bros.”
Undefeated in NXT, MSK quickly climbed the NXT tag team totem pole. Defeating the likes of Drake Maverick & Killian Dain, and Joaquin Wilde & Raul Mendoza, the new team immediately proved that they’re a force to be reckoned with.
At Elimination Chamber, Matt Riddle won a three-way match against Bobby Lashley and John Morrison to become US Champion. Riddle and Morrison had a singles match on Raw, where Morrison may have injured his knee.
