Will this get you to tune in when it airs on WWE Network next Tues., June 26?
BREAKING: #MustacheMountain @TrentSeven & @Tyler_Bate are the NEW @WWENXT #TagTeamChampions after defeating #UndisputedERA's @KORcombat & @roderickstrong at @RoyalAlbertHall! #WWEUKCT https://t.co/QodO90282i— WWE NXT (@WWENXT) June 19, 2018
That’s pretty much the only reason I can think of to go ahead and shout about two characters who haven’t had much of a role on NXT television lately defeating arguably the biggest heels on the brand a week before more of the world will be able to watch it.
NXT tapes new episodes Thursday night at Full Sail in Florida, so we’ll see if they run this back there. Hot potato-ing the belts back to Undisputed ERA’s Roderick Strong and Kyle O’Reilly would certainly back up the notion Trent Seven and Tyler Bate’s win wasn’t much more than a crowd-pleasing, and attention-grabbing ploy.
We’ll have a full spoiler report from the second day of the United Kingdom Championship Tournament event later... if WWE doesn’t go ahead and broadcast the results first, that is.
Our report from Monday’s taping, including how this match came to be in the first place, is here.
