War Raiders def. The Mighty
After proclaiming that all other teams in NXT (including War Raiders) would fall to them, The Mighty were anything but timid heading into action against the undefeated Rowe & Hanson. Shane Thorne & Nick Miller even dared to sucker-punch them before the match, which only infuriated the bearded brawlers.
Once the bell rang, War Raiders made The Mighty pay for their insolence, firing off a series of big hits. Thanks to a few clever, if underhanded, tricks, Thorne & Miller turned the tide, and for the first time since arriving to NXT, War Raiders found themselves on defense. The Mighty scored with finely-tuned tandem offense, and Thorne lit up Rowe with a textbook dropkick.
Hanson took over upon tagging back in, sending Thorne into the rafters with a huge back drop. He and Rowe then brought Thorne crashing to the mat with a pop-up powerslam, but Miller broke up the near-fall. After Hanson took out Miller with a gigantic suicide dive, he and Rowe regrouped to take down Thorne with the Fallout, dealing The Mighty a painful defeat.
The Mighty’s nasty tactics gave War Raiders a run for their money, but there appears to be no end in sight for Hanson & Rowe’s war path.
