The WWE NXT Tag Team Championships were on the line at tonight’s NXT Roadblock event, with current Champions Imperium putting the titles on the line against former Champions MSK (Wes Lee and Nash Carter). Carter and Barthel were the first in, and Barthel got off to a good start, but soon Carter was back and looped Barthel with a dropkick to the head. Barthel made a statement with his next uppercut, and a few back kicks looked incredibly painful.
Barthel had a chin bar on Carter but he escaped and tagged Lee, and they both unloaded a flurry of attack on Barthel, including a double stomp and some kicks to the back of his legs. Lee continued to attack Barthel’s legs and chest, and Barthel responded with some chops that allowed him to tag Aichner. Lee kept Aichner at bay but Aichner grabbed him and threw him into the ropes, slamming Lee’s leg into the top rope.
Aichner then focused on that leg and Lee’s foot and ankle with grabs and stomps, but Lee quickly pulled out of cover. Lee escaped another hold and landed a few kicks to the head, then he pulled Aichner to his corner and tagged Carter, but Aichner was kicked off the next pin attempt.
They traded punches until Carter tried to pin the shoulders, then Aicher hit a huge clothesline on Carter before tagging Barthel, who kicked Carter right in the chest. Barthel started working on Carter’s arm but he responded with a knee to the head. Carter got to Lee and made the tag, which knocked Aichner out of the ring and hit a drop-kick to the back of Barthel’s head. Lee followed up with a Moonsault and Barthel exited the ring.
Lee tagged Carter who rammed Barthel on the outside, but Aichner was back in the ring and he knocked Lee down. Then suddenly, The Creed Brothers hit the ring and decimated Imperium, but also knocked out MSK, standing in the ring as it ended in a disqualification.
