NXT Stars Shotzi Blackheart and Tegan Nox debut on WWE SmackDown this week.
Some reports came out before SmackDown last night that Shotzi and Tegan would debut on the show. Those reports turned out to be correct as Natalya and Tamina announced that they will face new competitors.
Shotzi and Tegan made their entrance on Shotzi’s mini tank and threw the projectiles at Tamina to infuriate their competitors. In a back and forth match that last around 5 minutes, Shotzi got the pin over Natalya after hitting a senton from the top.
The surprising thing about these call-ups is that Tegan made her return earlier this week at Great American Bash 2021. The return was hyped for weeks with a battery charging teaser. Also, Shotzi has been teaming up with Ember Moon on NXT. This sudden change in her tag team is not sitting with the fans who follow NXT regularly.
Another Superstar who is about to make her transition to SmackDown is the former NXT UK Women’s Champion Toni Storm. WWE aired a “coming soon” teaser for Storm’s addition to the SmackDown roster.
Keep tuned in for more updates from WWE and NXT call-ups.
