Heavy Machinery def. Riddick Moss & Tino Sabbatelli
After suffering a tough loss to Riddick Moss & Tino Sabbatelli last month, Heavy Machinery came out of the gates intent on steamrolling the muscle-packed pair in this rematch between two of NXT’s top tandems.
Helping Heavy Machinery’s cause was the noticeable friction between Moss & Sabbatelli, as the brawny ex-footballers were extra-aggressive with each other as they tagged in and out of action. Despite Sabbatelli’s failed attempt to cheat his way to victory by illegally putting his feet on the ropes during a pin, Tucker Knight & Otis Dozovic managed to down the boisterous brawlers, claiming the win after flattening Sabbatelli with the devastating Compactor.
The match result, as it turns out, was only the beginning of the bad news for Moss & Sabbatelli. Afterward, a visibly frustrated Moss refused to help Sabbatelli to his feet and stormed off on his own, leaving the NXT Universe to wonder if there’s trouble in paradise between the once-inseparable teammates.
