Joe Gacy has been leading a cult on NXT 2.0. The twisted individual is on a mission to introduce his followers to self righteousness on the yellow. Gacy leads The Schism and his followers are The Dyad.

Tonight’s episode of NXT 2.0 featured Gacy and The Dyad in a vignette. Gacy cut a promo about his mission to cleanse NXT 2.0 and introduce more followers to his twisted ways.

Gacy then asked The Dyad if they were ready to show their faces to the world, but warned them that there’s no going back after they do so. The camera then showed James Drake and Zack Gibson as The Dyad.

For those not in the know, Drake and Gibson used to wrestle on NXT and NXT UK as Grizzled Young Veterans. The duo are former NXY UK Tag Team Champions. WWE shortened their ring name to Gibson and Drake before they got repackaged.

WWE repackaged Drake as Jagger Reid and Gibson as Rip Fowler. Joe Gacy gave them their new names after their purification ritual this week on NXT 2.0.
