Tyler Bate and Trent Seven are now the NXT Tag Team Champions following their victory at the Royal Albert Hall.
NXT TakeOver: Chicago took place in the Allstate Arena on Saturday night, and once again the men and women of WWE's black and yellow brand put on a tremendous show. What makes their efforts even more impressive is that they spent the week before touring the UK and Europe, and on Monday and Tuesday night this week they returned to England for two massive shows in London's Royal Albert Hall.
Even though the two London shows will not air on the WWE Network until next week, some of the news from the shows has understandably been filtering through. The biggest announcement came on Monday night when Triple H and British wrestling legend, Johnny Saint revealed that there is going to be a touring NXT UK division and the shows will be taped and televised.
The big news coming out of night two is a massive title change. Tyler Bate and Trent Seven, aka Moustache Mountain, defeated Undisputed ERA's Roderick Strong and Kyle O'Reilly to capture the NXT Tag Team Championships. The win marks the beginning of the pair's first reign as champions in NXT, but Bate's second time with a title since he was the first ever WWE United Kingdom Champion.
The win means that all three members of British Strong Style, the faction Seven and Bate complete alongside Pete Dunne, currently have WWE gold. The Bruiserweight defeated Bate for the UK Championship 394 days ago, at the time of typing this. Meanwhile, Strong and O'Reilly's loss means the only member of Undisputed ERA with a championship is their leader, Adam Cole.
The two nights at the Royal Albert Hall have been long advertised by WWE as a big deal, and the action that has gone down over the two days has solidified those claims. The British stars of NXT will soon have even more titles to vie for as Tag and Women's Championships will be introduced as a part of NXT's UK brand. Perhaps Moustache Mountain could win those too and double up on their gold in the coming months.
