After a competitive fight, the champs come out on top thanks to their Double Impact finisher. Each duo in the NXT UK tag team scene file out to congratulate the champs and claim their spot in the title contention

  • NXT UK Women’s Champion Kay Lee Ray states that she’s the longest reigning champion to ever hold that gold and that she’ll be putting it up next week against Piper Niven, who is conveniently on hand to counter her statements and initiate another brawl.
