Mustache Mountain (Tyler Bate & Trent Seven) won the NXT UK Tag Team Championship by defeating Pretty Deadly on the December 9 edition of NXT UK.
Mustache Mountain’s Tyler Bate and Trent Seven are the new NXT UK Tag Team Champions! Bate and Seven ended the reign of Pretty Deadly (Lewis Howley & Sam Stoker) on the latest edition of NXT UK, which was actually taped on November 17 at WWE’s UK Performance Center in London, England.
The match was fast and fun, as you’d expect from two of the most exciting tag teams on WWE’s developmental roster. If it hadn’t been for a live crowd, there’s no doubt the match would have generated palpable excitement. The end came when Bate pinned Howley after hitting both Pretty Deadly members with a Spiral Tap. Seven and Bate hugged in celebration after the bell.
This win marks the start of Mustache Mountain’s first reign as NXT UK Tag Team Champions. As you may recall, the duo briefly held the NXT Tag Team Championship after defeating Undisputed Era’s Kyle O’Reilly and Roderick Strong at the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament in 2018, but lost gold two days. later at Full Sail.
Pretty Deadly won the NXT UK Tag Team Championship, from Gallus (Mark Coffey & Wolfgang) on the February 2 edition of NXT UK. Howley and Stoker’s reign was as memorable as any title reign on NXT UK can be, and it’s clear that both men have a bright future ahead of them. They’re both solid in the ring, but in terms of character and gimmick work, they understand the mission perfectly, which is why they were one of the highlights of NXT UK in 2021.
Tyler Bate and Trent Seven have had very strange careers in WWE. They have been involved with the business for over five years, but are still developing. They both seem happy with their current roles, but they’re definitely too good for NXT UK – no offense to NXT UK, but you know.
The NXT UK brand is not as popular as its American counterpart. But his world title is arguably the best booked in all of WWE.
