Breezango might have not defended the NXT Tag Team Championships at NXT Takeover 31, but they’ll have to put the gold on the line soon. After Danny Burch & Roderick Strong won a very odd tag team match against Fabian Aichner & Raul Mendoza, the #1 contenders match was set, it just needed to happen. Burch will team up with his best friend Oney Lorcan, Strong has fellow Undisputed Era member Bobby Fish, and one team will leave with the right of challenge against Breezango, likely to take place at Halloween Havoc.
Lorcan & Burch Are Focused
Lorcan would get this one started with Strong, Strong getting the early advantage with a headlock takeover. Strong lost control and ended up in a headscissor, but broke free and got the pace moving, only to end up right back in the hold. Burch would be tagged in, and Strong would remain on the defensive, ending up in an armlock. He’d manage to push his way to the corner for Bobby Fish to tag in, and this changed the complexion of the match, at least until Fish missed a senton and would be beat down by Burch.
Lorcan & Burch were following tag team wrestling 101, isolating an opponent and targeting a limb, that being the left arm of Fish. We’ve never seen them so focused, but maybe were too focused on Fish, accidentally letting him get a tag from Strong. After this, Lorcan would take a big back body drop and we’d go to a commercial break.
Undisputed Era Want To Make History
Coming back from the break, Lorcan had spent the duration isolated from his partner, but was ready to fight out. He’d almost end up in the Strong Hold, push Strong into the corner, and dodge a dive from Fish. Burch came in and cleaned house, nailing a pop-up powerbomb for a near fall. Fish would come back with a Samoan Drop, and tag Strong and look for a double team, only to be hit with a double dropkick from Burch. Lorcan would tag in and hit anything that moved, before hitting a double blockbuster and letting out a primal screech.
Burch was tagged back in, and they’d both apply submissions in the ring on Undisputed Era, before Lorcan took Fish to the outside. Strong was alone, took the elevated DDT, and Fish just pulled Lorcan out of the pin before three. Lorcan would be shoved into Burch, and take a high knee from Strong, ending this match. This was the same move that hospitalized Lorcan two years ago, and was deadly once again.
