Honestly, I'm almost speechless...but, you know, the only thing better than these championships is my friendship. This bond, this unexpected love story that came true and what better way to top this story off than with the NXT tag team championships and you can just tell by the look in his eye - he is thrilled.

Yeah, we had high expectations coming in tonight. We did what we said we were gonna do. The BroserWeights are the new NXT tag team champions.
