Last night on Monday Night Raw, there was a huge influx of NXT talents being called up to the main roster. Baron Corbin made his first Raw appearance, but debuted the night before at WrestleMania 32. Apollo Crews did debut on Raw along with the tag team of Enzo Amore and Big Cass. Now, there is yet another huge debut happening on tonight’s SmackDown taping, and the show will also feature an Intercontinental Title rematch between The Miz and Zack Ryder.
While some really big names were called up on Raw, one of the most popular tag teams in all of NXT is now getting their moment. WWE took to their Twitter account to reveal that The Vaudevillains would be making their way to SmackDown on Tuesday night.

It’s not known what they will be doing or who they will face in their first WWE match, but it’s going to be fun no matter what. Aiden English and Simon Gotch are former NXT Tag Team Champions and made their debut with the company back in June of 2014.
WrestleZone is reporting that there are a number of other big talents also being advertised for tonight’s SmackDown taping as well. Some of the names are Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, AJ Styles, Kevin Owens, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Chris Jericho, and Bray Wyatt.
The taping takes place in The Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, as WWE prepares to finish up their tour of the Lonestar State. The dark match being locally advertised is Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, and AJ Styles taking on Kevin Owens, Bray Wyatt, and Chris Jericho in a six-man tag team match.
One match that is confirmed to take place tonight is a rematch for the Intercontinental Title. On Raw, The Miz talked newly crowned champion Zack Ryder into a match and it resulted in a title change. The outcome of the match was influenced by the interference of The Miz’s real-life wife Maryse, who may be back with WWE.
Tonight at the SmackDown taping, the rematch will take place and Maryse is expected to be in the corner of The Miz. It’s not known if Zack Ryder will have his dad cheering him on at ringside again, or maybe he’ll have him in his corner.
On Monday Night Raw, one of the unexpected debuts and call-ups was that of Apollo Crews. The incredibly impressive and talented star took on Tyler Breeze, and it wasn’t an overly competitive match at all.

Baron Corbin also made his first appearance on Raw and he ended up going to a no contest with Dolph Ziggler, but making a point by beating up “The Showoff.” The night before, Corbin had made his WWE main roster debut at WrestleMania 32 by winning the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.
The Inquisitr earlier reported that Corbin could end up going on to have a match against either Ziggler or Kane at Payback.
It’s interesting to see WWE calling up so many NXT talents in such a short period of time as usually, it’s only one or two names every couple of months.
Tonight’s SmackDown taping is looking like it will be a really good one as WWE is trying to give a lot of attention to new names. It’s not exactly known why they are calling up so many NXT names at once, but The Vaudevillains are certainly deserving of it. Add that to the Intercontinental Title rematch, and it should make for a great show.
