Tag Team Finally Headed to WWE NXT?, Speculation on JBL and the WWE HOF, March to WrestleMania

JBL's name was on a list of 2016 WWE Hall of Famers several weeks back, along with Sting, The Godfather, The Fabulous Freebirds, Jacqueline, and Regis Philbin, and that list of names
was also confirmed to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter. However, JBL and Ron Simmons inducting The Godfather may indicate that JBL won't be inducted this year. That has not been confirmed.

- As noted, Sami Zayn, Enzo Amore, Colin Cassady and WWE NXT Tag Team Champions "The Revival" Dash and Dawson are scheduled for the March 12th "March to WrestleMania: Live from Toronto" WWE Network special. We still don't know if they're working dark matches or the actual broadcast but it's also possible they tape two matches for NXT TV, a NXT Tag Team Title match and perhaps Sami vs. someone on the main roster.

- It looks like "TMDK" Mikey Nicholls and Shane Haste may be headed to WWE NXT finally. It was reported in late 2015 that their Pro Wrestling NOAH deals were set to expire on December 31st but the two are scheduled to return to NOAH from March 2nd through March 10th. "The Mighty Don't Kneel" had a farewell a few months back as they were expected to report to WWE after Haste recovered from knee surgery but The Observer notes that this next set of events in March looks to be the real farewell.

It was first reported in the summer of 2015 that the former GHC Tag Team Champions impressed WWE officials at a tryout and were offered contracts. At the time they were reportedly waiting for visa paperwork to process and medical testing to be done.
