Originally published at WWE NXT notes: Mei Ying in action, two tag title matches on 9/7

The 9/7 installment of NXT will feature the in-ring debut of the Mei Ying character. NXT talent Karen Q is the individual portraying the character.

There are going to be two tag title matches next week. MSK (Nash Carter & Wes Lee) are putting their NXT Tag Titles on the line against Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch. Lorcan and Burch never lost the titles and had to relinquish them due to Burch’s separated shoulder injury. The NXT Women’s Tag Titles will be defended as well as the champions Io Shirai and Zoey Stark meet Kayden Carter and Kacy Catanzaro.

Two additions were made to Diamond Mine. The Creed Brothers, Julius and Brutus are now a part of the group. ‘Julius’ is collegiate wrestler Jacob Kasper and ‘Brutus’ is Drew Kasper.
