It has been rumored for some time, but it appears that now WWE NXT tag-team the Ascension will be making their main roster debut soon. There was an idea being thrown out for them to team with Bray Wyatt. This idea seemed good, as it gave Wyatt yet another team to work with. However, the team would be far superior from the last as the Ascension can add so much more to the group.
The two have an ability to wrestle well. Both are power oriented, where they simply beat up their opponents. They were previously the NXT Tag-Team champions until being beaten by Kalisto and Sin Cara. They had the longest championship reign of any kind in NXT history. It was quite impressive, but it was assumed the two would be coming to the main roster, so they had to end up dropping the titles.
They have entered a bit of a rivalry with Hideo Itami and Finn Balor. They are set to take the two on at NXT Takeover: R Evolution.
It is assumed they will leave after this to be part of the main roster.
The two are currently working on a video package with WWE production staffers to use as a teaser that will air on WWE programming. It was supposed to air on Raw this past week, but it was said that it could be delayed until after the NXT Special next week.
It is claimed that the two will keep their gimmick, but will resemble some of the WWE tag-teams back in the 90’s. This could be good, as it will allow the two the best chance to succeed as a tag team. We could see them debut as soon as the end of the month or first of January.
The Ascension has dominated on NXT for quite some time, and really have remained as the only set tag-team from the program. WWE put a few teams together such as Corey Graves and Adrian Neville, but they all ended up splitting. The Ascension gimmick has been around since 2011, but the group has had a few alterations over the years.
Originally, Kenneth Cameron was part of the group along with Konner. Cameron ended up being released by WWE in 2012 after he was arrested. He is now working for TNA under the name Bram.
Viktor ended up joining with Konner in 2013 and they have been together since.
The cool part is that they have a gimmick that can work in today’s market and many feel that WWE could have the next big tag-team on their hands. We could see a lot from them very quickly into their WWE run. So, let’s hope they arrive soon.
