The Grizzled Young Veterans Promo:
Zack Gibson is Liverpool’s Number One. This man right here is James Drake. Together they are Grizzled Young Veterans and your NXT UK Tag Team Champions. They are locker room leaders, but their general manager Johnny Saint thinks it’s funny to drag them to a muddy field. To compete in front a field of dirty, sweaty doffs. Do not clap that wasn’t a compliment. A field full of punches happy to spend hundreds of pounds on a ticket to come here, but not happy to party two quid for a bottle of deodorant. And don’t blame the mud or the rain. Because Gibson has been moving away from you on the bus since before he could say the word sweat.
This Download is supposed to be a music festival. Gibson has yet to here any music. He’s heard a lot of nonsense. He hasn’t been able to depict one single instrument. They don’t want to be here. Unfortunately they have to put their tag team titles on the line against Mustache Mountain. Until then, they’ll be heading back to their five star hotel. Take their shoes off. Put a towel on and listen to Ben Howard. They are Grizzled Young Veterans. Soon to be recognized as the best tag team champions in all of WWE. Let’s get out of this absolute cesspool.
