In WWE matches, superstars from the same division tend to team up for tag matches. However, NXT UK superstar Sam Gradwell took it up a notch via his Twitter and asked Stone Cold Steve Austin to be his tag partner.

Sam has to face the Pretty Deadly on NXT UK and asked several superstars to be his tag partner. Gradwell took to Twitter and asked Austin to help in the match and also noted that he would then love to open some beer cans after the match.

@steveaustinBSR Hi mate, this is Sam Gradwell from the Rattled Jowl Ranch in Blackpool, don’t suppose you can make it to over next week to tag with me against that pair of yoghurts Pretty Deadly on #NXTUK? Then we’ll pop a few tinnies at @btsportwwe studios?”

Looks like former WWE NXT UK champion Walter is good friends with Gradwell because Gradwell asked Walter to join him for a match.

He addressed Walter on Twitter and reminisced about a brief memory between the two when they used to work together. Eventually, asking Walter to join for one more match.

@WalterAUT Know what’s more sacred than mats? MATES. We’ve had some good times haven’t we? Remember when I said “Alright mate!” and you kind of grunted, didn’t even look at me you old joker! What do you reckon you stay for ONE more match in #NXTUK and be my partner next week?”

However, all these are wrestlers, so it still makes sense for Sam to be knocking on their door. But Gradwell seemed particularly desperate for a tag team partner and asked the one and only Elon Musk to join him for his next match. Gradwell even mentioned that after the match, the duo could go on a trip on the moon over the weekend.

@elonmusk Alright mate, do you fancy being my tag partner on #NXTUK next week to fight Pretty Deadly? Then we’ll go for a long weekend in space if you want, I can actually breathe on the moon”

This is really hilarious on Sam Gradwell’s part. However, who will accept his invitation and join him in his next match on NXT UK?
