During Wednesday night's WWE NXT episode, Kyle O'Reilly and Bobby Fish of The Undisputed Era faced off against Eric Young and Killian Dain of SAnitY.
At the end of the match, we had new NXT Tag-Team Champions in O'Reilly and Fish after only signing with the company only a few months ago. This is of course is their first championship together.
It was a short-lived title run for Dain and Young, after they just became the NXT Tag-Team Champions back in August at NXT "Takeover: Brooklyn III." At least they were the champs for the past four months. It could have always been a shorter reign.
Even though it was revealed during Wednesday's airing of NXT that O'Reilly and Fish are now the champions the pair actually officially won the titles back on November 29th, when the show was originally taped. So they've been defending their titles in live shows ever since then.
Here are some photos and videos of Wednesday's match.
The 38 year-old Fish started his pro wrestling career back in 2002 and worked the independent circuit until 2006, when he signed with Pro Wrestling Noah and then left for Ring of Honor in 2013 and stayed there until he signed with NXT Wrestling in June of 2017. He also spent some time with New Japan Wrestling from 2014-2016.
Fish has won championships where ever he's gone. He won two different titles with Ring of Honor and a tag-team title with NJPW.
The 30 year-old O'Reilly started his career in 2005 with Extreme Canadian Championship Wrestling and didn't leave them until he signed with NXT in July of 2017. He also worked with New Japan Wrestling, Ring of Honor and Pro Wrestling Guerilla.
Like Fish, O'Reilly has won a championship belt where ever he's wrestled. So it sounds like both of these guys were bound to win a title with NXT.
With both Fish and O'Reilly already winning a championship within their first six months with NXT, I have to imagine that WWE has some big plans for them and that they might possibly end up on Raw or SmackDown some time in 2018.
