The NXT Tag Team divison is on the rise once again with The Broserweights on top. Teams like Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch are starting to build themselves back up into stars, and there is new blood in the revived form of TMDK in Shane Thorne & Brendan Vink (formerly Elliot Sexton). They made their tag team debut on Monday Night RAW where they failed to defeat the current RAW Tag Team Champions and NXT Alumni, the Street Profits. With this being their NXT debut, they had a chance to reset their record.
Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch Prove They Are A Top Team
The match would start as Vink and Burch would square off, with the size and power of Vink proving to be too much. Quick tags in and out from the Aussie Duo would allow them to beat down on Burch, until his crafty nature would allow him to break free and tag in Lorcan. Some stiff uppercuts and chops would stagger Thorne, who would quickly scurry to his corner to tag in Vink who instantly nailed a huge Uranage to put the momenteum back in the corner of TMDK.
Sadly for them, it takes a lot to put down Oney Lorcan, who would rally back in a huge way once Thorne was back in the ring, turning him inside out with a massive lariat. We would see both men tag out and Burch would be matched with Vink once again. The experience and fire of Burch would lead to a huge flurry of offense as he would work Vink down into a crossface. Lorcan would intercept Thorne and lock in a single legged Boston Crab, and both members of the Aussie duo would tap out in unison.
Will They Ever Claim The NXT Tag Team Championships?
While Burch & Lorcan have proved time and time again that they are the hardest hitting team in the division, they have yet to be able to claim tag team gold. They have taken champions to the limit, but always fallen short. This match showed a more focused team, with their experience finally starting to show as they’ve become a well oiled machine. Matt Riddle & Pete Dunne are on a similar run, just with the added confidence of the NXT Tag Team Championships. Do you think Lorcan & Burch will become NXT Tag Team Championships, or will they forever just be challengers? Let us know what you think in the comment section down below.
