Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish def. Eric Young & Killian Dain to win the NXT Tag Team Championship
ORLANDO — The Undisputed ERA have been more naughty than nice since arriving to NXT, but that didn’t stop Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish’s wishes from coming true this Christmas season. With the help of their Undisputed ERA cohort Adam Cole, O’Reilly & Fish dealt a devastating blow to arch-rivals SAnitY, defeating Eric Young & Killian Dain in a wild title match to claim the NXT Tag Team Championship.
Though O’Reilly & Fish’s expert submission and striking skills allowed them to isolate Young for much of the match, SAnitY turned the corner once the gigantic Killian Dain got the tag. As impactful as The Beast of Belfast was, however, Cole’s intrusion at ringside turned out to be the true game-changer. The Panama City Playboy sneakily aided O’Reilly & Fish at various points in the raucous bout, including running Dain shoulder-first into the steel ring post at a critical juncture.
Young tried to neutralize Cole by hitting him with a suicide dive, but the veteran’s decision to take his eye off his opponents gave O’Reilly & Fish the opportunity they needed. Upon returning to the ring, Young was greeted by a devastating high-low combination from O’Reilly & Fish, which sealed the win, kicking off Undisputed ERA’s first title reign in NXT.
