Moustache Mountain are finally the NXT UK Tag Team Champions.

In the main event of this week's NXT UK episode, Moustache Mountain (Tyler Bate & Trent Seven) defeated Pretty Deadly (Sam Stoker & Lewis Howley) to win the NXT UK Tag Team titles. The story for the match included Seven not knowing what would be next for his career if Moustache Mountain didn't win.

Bate pinned Howley to win the titles. After hitting Tyler Driver '97 on Howley, Bate struggled to get to the top rope. Stoker tried to help his partner, but Seven cut him off and gave him a Birminghammer on top of Howley. Bate then got the win by hitting a Spiral Tap on both Pretty Deadly members.

This is Bate & Seven's first reign as NXT UK Tag Team Champions. They did briefly hold the US version of the NXT Tag Team titles in 2018, winning them from Undisputed Era's Kyle O'Reilly & Roderick Strong before then dropping the titles back to O'Reilly & Strong.

Having previously held the NXT United Kingdom Championship and Heritage Cup Championship, Bate is NXT UK's first triple crown champion. Bate lost the Heritage Cup Championship to Noam Dar this October due to interference by Pretty Deadly.

Pretty Deadly had been NXT UK Tag Team Champions since winning the titles from Gallus' Mark Coffey & Wolfgang this February.
