Expect fewer barbs and more blows when The Streets Profits run into The Forgotten Sons tonight. A Tag Team Match has been set for the two tandems, following the drama that has unfolded in recent weeks. On The Jan. 16th Edition Of NXT, Wesley Blake & Steve Cutler, along with their hard-hitting heavy Jaxson Ryker, ambushed Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins during their post-match victory lap with a brutal beatdown. It goes without saying that retribution will be on the menu when they face off tonight.

The Pirate Princess & The Genius Of The Sky will aim to silence their rivals, especially after being threatened by Shafir & Duke during a backstage confrontation last week. With bitter history between them, expect a testy scrap to erupt once they step inside the yellow ropes. Can Sane & Shirai settle the score? Or will Shafir & Duke continue their haunting?
