The Vaudevillains is professional wrestling tag team featured on WWE NXT's show. The team consists of Simon Gotch and Aiden English. They are former one time NXT Tag Team Champions. Their gimmick is a pair of Vaudeville-era throwbacks.
In June 2014, English formed a tag team with Simon Gotch, known as The Vaudevillains. The Vaudevillains made their in-ring debut as a team on the June 19 episode, defeating Angelo Dawkins and Travis Tyler. In August, The Vaudevillains participated in a tournament to determine the number one contenders to the NXT Tag Team Championship, before losing to The Lucha Dragons in the final. On the October 30 episode of NXT, The Vaudevillains won a tag team battle royal to become the number one contenders to the NXT Tag Team Championship. They received their title match at NXT TakeOver: R Evolution against The Lucha Dragons, but were unsuccessful. After a brief hiatus, The Vaudevillains returned on the June 3, 2015 episode of NXT, defeating Jason Jordan and Marcus Louis. On the July 1 episode of "NXT", The Vaudevillains defeated Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady to become number one contenders to the NXT Tag Team Championships. On July 15, Blake and Murphy defeated the Vaudevillains to retain their championships after Alexa Bliss interfered. Afterward, Alexa Bliss insulted and slapped them both. General Manager William Regal then announced that there would be a rematch at a later date, meaning that the Vaudevillains have turned face in the process. On August 22, at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn, the Vaudevillains (with Blue Pants as manager) defeated Blake and Murphy (with Alexa Bliss managing) to become NXT Tag Team Champions for the first time.
