Australian tag team The Mighty Don’t Kneel sign NXT deal


WWE.COM reported today that Australians Michael Nicholls and Shane Veryzer – known to wrestling fans as the tag team duo The Mighty Don’t Kneel – have signed with WWE.

Nicholls and Veryzer are relocating to Orlando, Florida, and will start at the WWE Performance Center in early April as part of a new NXT class.

The two have wrestled all over the world but have gained more recognition after moving to Japan and wrestle for Pro Wrestling NOAH. In 2013 the duo were voted as the top tag team by the Japanese media, the first time that non-Japanese competitors had won the award since 1998.
