Concerns about WWE U.K. Champion Pete Dunne being unable to keep the peace with unlikely teammates Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch turned out to be exaggerated, as the trio stood united — and triumphant — against their common enemies, Undisputed ERA.

The thrilling Six-Man Tag Team Match was all action from bell to bell. Though Roderick Strong anxiously avoided tangling with Dunne at the start, he was eventually forced to deal with the teammate he wronged at TakeOver: New Orleans. The BruiserWeight made him pay, ripping his knuckles apart with his tried-and-true joint manipulation (which Lorcan & Burch executed in triplicate with Dunne, targeting Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly).

Cole & O’Reilly later distracted the hard-hitting U.K. Champion, allowing The Messiah of the Backbreaker to take over and Undisputed ERA to cut off the ring. Dunne eventually broke free, and Lorcan roared into the fight, unleashing on all three members of Undisputed ERA. The battle raged on from there, and after The Panama City Playboy and The BruiserWeight both fell to the floor, Lorcan & Burch and the NXT Tag Team Champions were left to duke it out.

O’Reilly miscalculated his axe-and-smash combo on Burch at a pivotal juncture: The axe kick connected, but Burch dodged the forearm smash just as Strong leapt toward him, causing the champions to collide. Lorcan dropped O’Reilly & Strong with a double Blockbuster and then teamed with Lorcan to drill O’Reilly with a wheelbarrow DDT, snaring the victory for their team and notching a massive win over the reigning NXT Tag Team Champions.
