With new NXT Tag Team Champions in Imperium members Fabian Aichner & Marcel Bartel, and the former champions of Matt Riddle & Timothy Thatcher brutalizing each other, it is time for another team to step up. Enter the double tough brawlers of Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch. They have tried many a time to win those NXT Tag Team Championships, and tonight they would square off with Ever-Rise as they look to rise to that role of number one contender once again.
Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch Tear Ever-Rise Apart
Action would start between Danny Burch & Chase Parker, with Burch getting the very early advantage. Parker would be picked out the sky for a single leg takedown, before he’d rain down heavy strikes and send Parker to make a tag. Matt Martel would eat a stiff headbutt, before Danny Burch would come in and deliever more hard hitting strikes to the French Canadian grappler.
This was more like a mugging and even a blind tag to Chase Parker wouldn’t catch him off guard. A Dragon Screw leg whip, running european uppercut and blockbuster would have Oney Lorcan fired up and ready to truly go. He’d lock in a single legged boston crab, Burch would grab Matt Martel into a crossface and both men would tap out in tandem.
The Best They Have Ever Looked
We have never seen this team look quite so strong before, with them absolutely brutalizing their opponents here. With very little viable teams within NXT right now, they are set to become the top-babyface tandem for the foreseeable future, and their warpath will lead the straight to Imperium. Very few will complain about this, as they have been proven to be one of the most exciting teams in all of WWE. They might not be flashy, but they are fast paced bruisers who can also slow a match down into a technical marvel.
Ever-Rise will get their day. They have been together as a team for 15 years and are the definition of tag team specialists, which will serve them well in NXT. But on this night, their rise was stopped and The Brit-Am Brawlers could be on their way to NXT Takeover: In Your House. Do you think they will finally capture the NXT Tag Team Championships?
