Riddle & Dunne capture NXT Tag Team gold at TakeOver: Portland


It took a jet trip and a tricked out golf cart to get them to Portland, Oregon, but it was worth it for the Broserweights Sunday at TakeOver as Pete Dunne and Matt Riddle won the NXT Tag Team titles from The Undisputed Era.

The beginning of the finish to the fantastic match came when Riddle hit a ripcord knee to Bobby Fish to take him out of the action temporarily. He and Dunne then focused on Kyle O'Reilly, hitting tandem knees to the head following an assisted power bomb. Fish then came back into the fray, getting hit with a Riddle fireman's carry into a dropkick by Dunne to get the pin, sending the Portland crowd into a frenzy.

This is the first NXT gold for both Riddle (who signed with WWE in the summer of 2018) and Dunne, the long reigning former WWE UK Champion. They earned the title shot with their tournament victory in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.

The victory ended the third reign for the Undisputed Era of Fish and O'Reilly who held the belts for 172 days after defeating the Street Profits in August on NXT TV.
