NXT Champion Aleister Black & Ricochet def. EC3 & Velveteen Dream
Of the many questions that loomed heading into this veritable dream match against NXT Champion Aleister Black & Ricochet, one pondered how the outsized personalities of EC3 and Velveteen Dream would get along. As it turned out, not well.
Dream again showed he’s not a tag team partner to be trusted. After a couple of miscommunications — including EC3 using the top rope to pull himself onto the apron, which caused Dream to lose balance on the top turnbuckle and hurt his knee — Dream rejected a tag from The Top One Percent and stormed out of the ring.
An enraged EC3 screamed that he would “end” Velveteen Dream, but little did he realize that The Dutch Destroyer was standing behind him, ready to bring EC3’s night to an abrupt end. By the time EC3 turned around, it was too late. Black Mass was already in service, and a tag team victory for Black & Ricochet was academic. Afterward, The One and Only, who has made his title ambitions known in the past, graciously handed the NXT Title to Black in a show of respect.
