The Lucha Dragons are a professional wrestling tag team in the WWE in the developmental territory NXT, consisting of Sin Cara and Kalisto, where they are the former NXT Tag Team Champions in their first reign (individually and as a team). Their name is a reference to their Lucha libre style of wrestling. They won the NXT Tag Titles after defeating former champions The Ascension on September 11, 2014 at NXT Takeover: Fatal 4-Way.

History

Background

After WWE's release of Luis Urive on March 26, 2014, Jorge Arias (formerly known as "Hunico" and previously portrayed Sin Cara) reprised the Sin Cara character towards the end of 2013. After a brief winning streak, as 2014 progressed, Sin Cara was unsuccessful in winning four battle royals: the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania XXX, a battle royal for the WWE United States Championship in May, a Money in the Bank qualifying battle royal in June, and a battle royal for the WWE Intercontinental Championship at Battleground.

On the July 24 episode of NXT, after failing to win the NXT Tag Team Championship from The Ascension with his former partner El Local at NXT Takeover on May 29, Kalisto announced he and El Local had parted ways and revealed Sin Cara as his new partner.

NXT Tag Team Champions

Over the next weeks, Kalisto and Sin Cara won a tournament to become the number one contenders to the NXT Tag Team Championship. On September 11 at NXT Takeover: Fatal 4-Way, Kalisto and Sin Cara, now billed together as "The Lucha Dragons", defeated The Ascension to become the new NXT Tag Team Champions, their first WWE titles. They successfully defended their titles in a rematch against The Ascension two weeks later on the September 25th episode of NXT, winning the match after Hideo Itami distracted Ascension.
