On a night where the United Kingdom division was in the spotlight, they didn’t disappoint in the slightest.

NXT was aired from the Aztec Theatre in San Antonio, Tex.

In the main event of the evening, it was Mustache Mountain (Tyler Bate and Trent Seven) vs. UK Champion Pete Dunne and Mark Andrews.

It was a stunning and hard-hitting affair from start to end. Neither team had control for long periods of time throughout, stifling any momentum the other gained.

A bunch of jaw-dropping maneuvers and hard strikes highlighted the hectic back-and-forth action. Bate was finally able to gain full control, finally hitting the Tyler Driver 97 to pick up the hard-fought win for himself and Seven.

Dunne didn’t take the loss lightly, ambushing his partner Andrews from behind. To add insult to injury, he capped off the attack with the Bitter End.

Looking to put their rivalry to rest, The Street Profits faced Tino Sabbatelli and Riddick Moss once again.

Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins took control early on, showing off their impressive teamwork and agility. A stiff forearm shot by Sabbatelli shifted the momentum in his team’s favor. He took the opportunity to wear down Ford with a ground-and-pound style.

It was he and Moss’ turn to show off their chemistry, brutalizing Ford with heavy strikes and offense. Ford’s tenacity paid off, however, as he was finally able to tag Dawkins in.

Dawkins wasted no time in taking control, grounding his opponents with ease. Moss tried to pull off some illegal tactics to get his team the win, but the referee caught him in the act. This distraction allowed Dawkins and Ford to hit their team finisher for the win.

The women’s division was on display next, as the Pirate Princess Kairi Sane took on The Venus Fly Trap of NXT, Peyton Royce. The two traded blows to begin the bout, but a distraction by Royce’s friend Billie Kay allowed her to fully take control.

But Sane staged a major comeback, thwarting an interference attempt by Kay and hitting her patented diving elbow drop to sail away with the victory.
