#1 NXT Tag Team Champions The Undisputed Era vs Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch
Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch come in as the hot hand riding a tidal wave of momentum heading into NXT TakeOver Chicago. After teaming up with Pete Dunne on May 16th, Lorcan & Burch have already tasted victory over The Undisputed Era.
Still, it's difficult to see that result repeating. For one, Pete Dunne won't be with Lorcan & Burch this time and that is a huge loss.
Secondly, Undisputed Era's third man, Adam Cole, isn't featured on the card. This means one of two things; either he won't appear on the show at all (doubtful) or he will appear in this match to aid his brethren in victory in some underhanded manner.
WWE has a huge investment in Undisputed Era and undoubtedly see them as a huge part of the company's future for years to come. Don't expect that proverbial train to derail here.
