Enter Roderick Strong, the man who made his NXT debut as the surprise tag team partner of Austin Aries in the Dusty Classic two years ago, now finds himself on the other side of the coin.
Regal confirmed on Friday that Moustache Mountain would be unable to compete in the First Round of the tag team tournament due to an injury to Tyler Bate, prompting Strong to throw his name in the hat.
The Messiah of the Backbreaker posted a video on Twitter on Sunday, asking Regal to let him and a partner of his choice take Moustache Mountain’s place.
.@RoderickStrong, after much deliberation, I am going to grant you the opportunity to replace Moustache Mountain with a partner of your choosing. I trust you will seize this opportunity. See you Wednesday. https://t.co/Y28cnX9dya
