TM61 def. Street Profits
TM61 might be mighty, but they’re not above taking shortcuts to get ahead in NXT’s competitive Tag Team division. Shane Thorne & Nick Miller proved that much in their showdown with Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford.
With both teams plagued by recent setbacks and hungry to score a meaningful win, the battle was hotly contested from the opening bell. Innovative double-team moves were in high supply, as were hard knockdowns. Late in the match, Ford flew into a sunset flip on Thorne, but Thorne reversed it into his own matchbook-pin attempt. Thorne illegally put his feet on the ropes for added leverage, and Miller held them there, outside of the referee’s line of vision. The tactic worked and TM61 scored the win, but they might have lost the respect of the Profits, if not some members of the NXT Universe, in the process.
