Moustache Mountain’s enormous NXT Tag Team Title win in London established Tyler Bate & Trent Seven as the team to beat on the black-and-yellow brand, but their problems with former champions Undisputed ERA are far from over.

NXT North American Champion Adam Cole, Roderick Strong & Kyle O’Reilly ambushed Bate & Seven’s scheduled opponents, Dave Dixon & Carl Axelrod, from behind as they entered Full Sail Live. Declaring Moustache Mountain’s win a “fluke” and Bate & Seven “phonies,” the trio surrounded the champions and appeared ready to pounce until Ricochet rushed in to even the odds. William Regal acted within moments and ruled that the two squads would meet on the spot, setting the foundation for a rip-roaring six-man main event.

Both sides unloaded a frenzy of high-octane offense that left the NXT Universe breathless. Ricochet & Moustache Mountain showed incredible team chemistry, while Undisputed ERA employed brutal strikes and a few shortcuts to control the pace. Late in the match, Ricochet tagged in and unleashed his latest gif-worthy innovation, backflipping out of a high/low combination by Strong & O’Reilly.

Ricochet followed up with a 630 Splash on The Panama City Playboy moments later, but O’Reilly broke up the ensuing pin attempt. The action then spilled to the floor, where Strong demolished Ricochet with a modified End of Heartache onto the edge of the ring apron before rolling him into the ring for Cole to pin.

Undisputed ERA’s trip to the U.K. may have shrunk their championship trove, but it also intensified their competitive fire, as Ricochet & Moustache Mountain found out tonight.

After losing the NXT Tag Team Championship to Mustache Mountain, Kyle O’Reilly and Roderick Strong of Undisputed ERA say that United Kingdom rules don’t apply in the United States.

Night Two at Royal Albert Hall kicked off with a bang — or, rather, a Bop and a Bang — as Moustache Mountain defended their home turf and became the new NXT Tag Team Champions with a stirring victory against Undisputed ERA.

The irreverent champions, Kyle O’Reilly & Roderick Strong, unloaded a cavalcade of hard strikes, but Tyler Bate & Trent Seven were firing on all cylinders, both individually and as a unit. “Textbook” Bate’s remarkable feats of strength (such as fighting off O’Reilly’s sleeper hold while deadlifting Strong into a suplex) were game-changing, as was Seven’s savvy ring awareness.

Undisputed ERA, who were perhaps still reeling from losing to British Strong Style in a Six-Man Tag Team Match the night before, also suffered from pivotal miscalculations. A missed high-low attempt late in the match opened the door for Seven & Bate to hit O’Reilly with an incredible Torture Rack/flying knee drop combination. The referee counted to three and the NXT Universe erupted. As chants of “You deserve it!” carried through Royal Albert Hall, Moustache Mountain took the titles over the ring barricade and celebrated with their countrymen.

After enduring Undisputed ERA’s insults and mockery of England for weeks on end, British Strong Style refused to be beaten on their own turf by the bombastic, gold-clad faction.

NXT North American Adam Cole and NXT Tag Team Champions Kyle O’Reilly & Roderick Strong employed quick tags to isolate Trent Seven and, later, WWE U.K. Champion Pete Dunne from their teammates. Nonetheless, Dunne, Seven & Tyler Bate forged ahead, fighting both for national pride and the intense desire to knock the pompous Undisputed ERA down a peg.

The action was nonstop, and the fans inside Royal Albert Hall hung on every exchange as the battle grew into an instant classic. Seven regained control for his team after drilling Strong with the Seven Stars Lariat late in the match. Cole’s attempt to weaponize his NXT North American Title provided a costly distraction (allowing Strong to blindside Seven), and a pier-six brawl broke out from there. The BruiserWeight wiped out Cole & Strong with a moonsault to the floor, allowing Moustache Mountain to earn the cathartic victory after decimating O’Reilly with a rebound clothesline/dragon suplex combination.

Following their big triumph, Moustache Mountain now look ahead to challenging Strong & O’Reilly for the NXT Tag Team Titles tomorrow at Royal Albert Hall.

CHICAGO — Despite turning in one of the grittiest efforts of their careers, Danny Burch & Oney Lorcan came just shy of capturing the NXT Tag Team Championship at NXT TakeOver: Chicago II, as Undisputed ERA’s Roderick Strong & Kyle O’Reilly maintained court and defeated the hard-hitting duo in a blistering opening contest.

With tensions between the two duos boiling over during the past several weeks, the physicality was off the charts from the get go. Burch & Lorcan kept Strong & O’Reilly at bay in the early goings, using a mix of ground-and-pound, aggressive strikes and straight-up aggression to take control of the bout. However, when Strong hit Burch flush in the face with a dropkick and then smashed him across one of the LED boards below the ring apron, Undisputed ERA took control.

Strong and O’Reilly kept Burch down with hard-hitting offense and a swarming of submission holds. It wasn’t until the battered Burch connected with a brutal headbutt that he was able to tag in Lorcan, who absolutely exploded, downing his opposition instantly with a barrage of offense. Oney and the refurbished Burch kept Undisputed ERA reeling until O’Reilly was applied a cross armbreaker that evened the playing field.

NXT North American Champion Adam Cole made a pivotal save for his cohorts when he pulled O’Reilly out of the ring after it appeared he would be down for a definite three-count following an unbelievable flying European uppercut. Cole was caught by the referee and promptly ejected from ringside as Lorcan & Burch continued to rally.

In the pivotal moment, O’Reilly & Strong temporarily eliminated Burch, leaving the legal Lorcan alone with both NXT Tag Team Champions. After a succession of strikes, a more-than-dazed Lorcan was struck with a high-low combination from Undisputed ERA that kept him down for three.

The champions walked away victorious, but as the battered challengers rose to their feet in the ring, the NXT Universe paid respect with a stirring standing ovation. They may not have earned the titles, but Oney & Lorcan definitely earned respect.

After gloating about Undisputed ERA’s successful night, NXT Tag Team Champion Kyle O’Reilly issues a challenge to The BruiserWeight.

The Undisputed Era make their way to the stage and they go to the ring.

Adam tells them to relish in this situation. Look at all of this gold. This is what happens when you back the Undisputed Era into the corner. NXT’s mission has been to prevent this from happening, but here we stand.

Bobby says it is no secret. At War Games, they were thrown to the wolves and in New Orleans, the same thing. What you fail to realize is that in every turn, the Undisputed Era remain one step ahead. Do you need any proof? They stand here today dripping in NXT Championship Gold.

For once, he did something for himself and at Takeover, he made the best decision of his career.

He has seen them take a bullet for them.

Kyle says they are done being backed into a corner. It doesn’t matter what the powers that be do to try to slow them down. They cannot be stopped. This is the era of the undisputed. Times are changing. They will leave everyone else in the dust.

Adam says that was well said. Adam says he will defend his title against Oney Lorcan right now. He will do it on his own because he won this title by himself and he will defend it himself. Adam says he doesn’t need any help beating Oney Lorcan. Adam wants them to do him a favor and go to the back and find a comfortable seat and a cold beverage to see what he is going to do. They are here to shock the system.
