Kushida is set to team with MSK (Wes Lee & Nash Carter) this Tuesday on NXT and he is excited to fulfill his promise to his longtime friend.
Taking to Twitter, Kushida revealed that his longtime friend and former tag team partner Alex Shelley told him of MSK as they signed with WWE and were coming to NXT. Shelley wanted to make sure MSK was taken care of and asked Kushida to do so.
Kushida was immediately impressed with MSK and is excited to work with them.
About a half year ago, my long time friend Alex Shelley sent me a text message. He told me that a great new tag team was coming to the NXT. He said they have a lot of potential. And he asked me to take good care of them.
When MSK arrived to the NXT, they made an immediate impression on me. And I understood why Alex Shelley spoke so highly of them. In my opinion, they have the potential to change tag team history. They remind me of some of the other great teams that I have worked with over the years. This Tuesday, I will have the opportunity to fulfill my promise.
Shelley worked with MSK (formerly The Rascalz) in IMPACT Wrestling before they left for NXT.
Kushida and MSK are set to team to face Legado del Fantasma on Tuesday's NXT. You can view the current lineup for the April 27 episode of NXT by clicking here.
Fightful will have live coverage of NXT beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
