Viking Raiders vs. Street Profits ended in a No Contest
When The Street Profits last faced the NXT Tag Team Champions The Viking Raiders, the scrappy and rugged tandem torpedoed the bearded berserkers with an all-out attack that nearly put a dent in the champions’ armor. Looking to avoid an upset, the sequel featured the Raiders forcing their opponents into defense from the opening bell. For starters, Erik dashed into Angelo Dawkins with a dropkick, before sidelining Montez Ford with a vicious right knee strike. The Raiders didn’t let up, unloading on the Profits with their devastating double-team offense.
A spear from Dawkins, however, sent Erik out of the ring and put the Profits back in “full attack mode.” After dueling cartwheels with Ivar, the ever-athletic Dawkins scooped him up with a hard-hitting spinebuster that was combined with a breathtaking frog splash from Ford. As the Raiders fought back, a melee erupted when the Forgotten Sons attacked both Ivar & Erik at ringside, prompting a no-contest. Things quickly descended into bedlam when Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch also joined the fray, sparking an all-out brawl.
Though there was no clear winner in their championship clash, the Profits turned the turmoil into a bit of comeuppance when they attacked Erik and logged an unofficial three-count to snatch their own moral victory before scurrying. In response, the Raiders annihilated the remaining tag teams in proximity, cutting down the likes of Lorcan, Burch and Wesley Blake with their explosive tandem attacks. Amid all the chaos, the status of the NXT Tag Team Titles was thrown into further uncertainty, drawing more questions than answers.
