Undisputed ERA def. Heavy Machinery
Confident, calculating and callous, Undisputed ERA withstood Heavy Machinery’s jarring hurricane to maintain their perch atop the NXT Tag Team division.
The tension between the two teams spilled out into an all-out brawl with both duos matching each other’s level of physicality. Where Otis Dozovic & Tucker Knight employed their brute strength, Kyle O’Reilly & Roderick Strong met them in the middle with a mixture of damaging strikes. The combination between these respective forces made this contest one of the hardest-hitting NXT Tag Team Title battles this year.
Late in the bout, after landing a Caterpillar on Strong, Dozovic was quickly darted with a running kick by O’Reilly, who was clobbered by Knight. This give-and-go pace of action emphasized the high-stakes nature of this match.
In a pivotal moment, Dozovic threw caution to the wind by climbing to the top rope, only to have Strong and O’Reilly strike him back to his senses by combining to fold him with a superplex. Miraculously, the Heavy Machinery powerhouse kicked out of the pin attempt, which only fired up the wily O’Reilly & Strong to rain on Dozovic with a high/low combination that undisputedly kept him down for three.
