Based on the look of the logo in the teaser image, speculation is running high that the team will be Zachary Wentz and Desmond Xavier, known during their run in Impact Wrestling with Trey Miguel as The Rascalz. WWE signed the pair in late 2020 after all three men's contracts ended, though Miguel has not yet signed elsewhere.

Two matches were previously advertised for tonight on NXT as part of the Dusty Rhodes Classic: Adam Cole and Roderick Strong vs. Breezango and Ever-Rise vs. Grizzled Young Veterans. However, the teaser image WWE released on the NXT Twitter promises we'll get some answers on the identities of MSK tonight. The Chadster, for one, can't wait. The Chadster will probably turn on the USA Netowrk now and just watch whatever is on until NXT comes on later tonight.
