Best: Anybody Beating The Lucha Dragons Right Now Gets A Best

This week’s opening match is a tag team match to decide a new #1 contender to the NXT Tag Team Championships, because even though NXT is fun and cool, it’s still bogged down with a lot of WWE trappings. Teams that previously could never win are suddenly unbeatable because they’re being positioned as “#1 contenders,” and #1 contender matches seemingly happen at random with no prerequisites. See also: Los Matadores and The New Day getting slotted into a WrestleMania match.

Regardless, the opener had two of my favorite things:

1. Colin Cassady tag teaming with what is more or less a really flamboyantly obnoxious foreign object, and
2. The Lucha Dragons losing.
