Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch vs Undisputed Era

With a roster absolutely stacked from top to bottom, nobody expected to see Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch get a shot at the NXT Tag Team Titles, much less get a standing ovation from the Chicago crowd that night. In fact, when they came out, they were nearly booed out of the building. However, the two men ended up winning over the crowd on this night.

Stiff strikes, impressive counters, and the absolutely insane toughness and fortitude that Lorcan and Burch held at NXT TakeOver: Chicago II earned them the respect and adoration of the NXT Universe. Lorcan and Burch aren't the flashiest guys on the card, but they're two of the toughest guys you'll see on Wednesday nights, and that's more than enough to get a following.
