Pretty Deadly are the new unified NXT Tag Team Champions, but their win came in controversial circumstances!
Before the match event made it to the ring there was controversy surrounding the NXT Tag Team Title unification match with Roderick Strong being attacked in the parking lot. Something which would go on to have a huge impact on the end of the match.
Unsurprisingly the action was fast and furious. There were bodies flying every which way in the early going as nearly everyone in the match took a leap over the top rope to their rivals below.
However, something which did come as a surprise to many was the early elimination of the NXT UK Tag Team Champions Brooks Jensen and Josh Briggs.
The next team to fall were Gallus. Wolfgang fell victim to a modified Doomsday Device from the Creed Brothers, and one sliding clothesline, it was all over. Not that Wolfgang and Joe Coffey went quietly, eventually being escorted backstage by security.

This left Pretty Deadly and their long-time rivals NXT Tag Team Champions the Creed Brothers to fight it out for the win. Although the action continued outside the ring with Gallus and Jensen and Briggs brawling back down the ramp to ringside, knocking down the referee in the process.
Back in the ring, Damon Kemp of the Diamond Mine turned on the Creed Brothers smashing Julius with a chair, leaving the way clear for Pretty Deadly to claim the win.
