AND NEW Imperium Wins WWE NXT Tag Team Championship!! Tonight NXT started off with Matt Riddle and makeshift partner Timothy Thatcher defending their tag team titles against Imperium.
The match started off hot and heavy but slowed a bit as Thatcher is frustrated with Riddle for not being available for a tag and from there we all knew where this was going.
Riddle eventually got the tag and was worked over by Imperium as Thatcher screamed for a tag. Riddle didn’t make the tag and accidently monkey flipped Barthel into Thacther. Thatcher gets pissed and leaves.
Riddle screams for him to come back but he doesn’t. Riddle then does his best to take on Imperium but they proved to be too much. Aichner hits a huge spinebuster on Riddle that was followed up with a European Bomb for the 3 count.
This has been a long time coming. Barthel and Aichner are both incredible in the ring and have earned their title reign. This should set up a feud between Riddle and Thatcher until Pete Dunne can travel back to America.
For now, we have NEW WWE NXT Tag Team Champions in Imperium. Imperium now holds the NXT UK title and the NXT Tag Championships.
