A mega-six man tag match has been announced.
During the Royal Rumble kickoff show, WWE Hall Of Famer and NXT producer Shawn Michaels broke the news that next Sunday, WWE will be presenting something similar to 'Halftime Heat' on-which a six-man tag team match will take place. The NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano, NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa and Adam Cole will team up to face Aleister Black, Ricochet and Velveteen Dream.

Within the Fightful Select service, it was noted that our own Sean Ross Sapp was told by a source that WWE was hoping to run something similar to the 'Halftime Heat' format during the Super Bowl with the aforementioned NXT stars.
Last night at the close of TakeOver: Phoenix, Gargano, Ricochet, Aleister Black, Adam Cole and Dream brawled on the entrance ramp and in the backstage area until Triple H came by and calmed the situation down.
