Ever-Rise are Kevin Owens favorite tag team, and the hosts of Ever-Rise live. But that will do little to help them, as tonight they face Fabian Aichner & Marcel Bartel. With Alexander Wolfe in their corner, and orders from WALTER to purify NXT like they did NXT UK? This is going to be a hard fight for anyone, even tag team veterans like Matt Martel & Chase Parker.
Imperium Crushes Their Opponents
Aichner came right into this match by running Martel down with a lariat, before dropping him with a backdrop. Martel hit a jawbreaker and tagged Parker, who went for a crossbody before being caught and thrown with a Fallaway Slam. Parker got caught in the corner of Imperium, before being hit with a double dropkick.
Killian Dain came down to the ring to cause a ruckus, and Parker got a near fall with a roll up. Drake Maverick wanted to attack Alexander Wolfe, but Killian Dain carried him away, keen to have this fight another day. Back in the ring, Bartel & Aichner nailed The European Bomb for the win. It wasn’t a flashy win, but Imperium will take every win that they can get right now in NXT.
Getting Back To Form & Potentially Recruiting Two Top Names
After a horrible Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic and lackluster reign as NXT Tag Team Champions, it’s nice to see Aichner & Bartel getting back on track as a tag team. It’s unclear if Killian Dain is considering joining his old Sanity friend in Wolfe in this faction, but at the very least he wasn’t impressed that Maverick picked a fight here tonight.
Add in that Timothy Thatcher is an ex-member of Ringkampf, which brought Imperium to life? And this faction is potentially ready to take over. Do you see Thatcher or Dain joining Imperium? Let us know what you think in the comment section down below.
