Hello everyone and welcome to this historic NXT UK event, a first for the United Kingdom, as the WWE and the NXT Brand proudly presents the first ever NXT UK Takeover live from Blackpool, England. This evening we have five exciting match-ups and some surprises sprinkled in that will surely get the WWE Universe excited. So without any further ado let's get started with action.
"Finals of the NXT UK Tag Team Tournament To Crown New UK Tag Team Champions" - Moustache Mountain (Trent Seven and Tyler Bate) vs. James Drake and Zack Gibson
We kicked off tonight's contest with quite a doozy. This was a smash mouth, hard hitting match that had the WWE Universe on the edge of their seats. We saw Trent Seven and Tyler Bate decked out in "The British Bulldogs" inspired ring gear that will surely make the late Davey Boy Smith and Dynamite Kid proud.
We saw some incredible action and high spots, which included Tyler Bate applying to perfection a Double Airplane Spin, showcasing his power and might, as he spun his opponents around for the WWE Universe. Both men connected with a combination Running Powerslam/Diving Headbutt combination as another homage to the British Bulldogs that nearly gave them the victory. Tyler Bate had his head split open after a thunderous elbow to the back of the head.
Zack Gibson and James Drake would battle back, connecting with the Helter Skelter and a 450 Splash, back to back, to try and put Moustache Mountain away but to no avail. Later on, we had an amazing spot in which we saw Tyler Bate take a plunge off the shoulders of Zack Gibson hard onto the arena floor after James Drake dove through the ropes and connected with a Suicide Dive that was a sight to behold.
When the smoke was cleared, we saw Gibson and Drake double-team Trent Seven, connecting with the Ticket to Mayhem to become the newly crowned NXT UK Tag Team Champions!
Winners: Zack Gibson and Trent Seven
