The largest championship contest in the history of NXT lived up to its billing.

Weighing a combined 1,205 pounds, The Authors of Pain and Heavy Machinery battled for the NXT Tag Team Championship in a match that had the ring crew sweating bullets.

Tucker Knight & Otis Dozovic proved early that they were serious challengers to Akam & Rezar’s titles, not only matching the champions’ power, but at times besting it.

Unfortunately for the eager challengers, an attempt to land their trademark Compactor was thwarted and turned into The Last Chapter on Dozovic, as the titleholders successfully retained the NXT Tag Team Championship.

Following the contest, Killian Dain, Nikki Cross and Alexander Wolfe of SAnitY appeared on stage sporting wicked smiles, as what seemed to be pages from a book dropped from the sky. What does this cryptic display mean for The Authors of Pain?
