The Creed Brothers won the NXT Tag Team Championships tonight at In Your House.
The Creeds defeated Pretty Deadly tonight to win the titles for the first time. The finish had Julius rejecting using the NXT Tag Team title and instead planted Kit Wilson with a shooting star press. He followed that with a sliding D clothesline for the win.
Pretty Deadly held the titles for 53 days, last defeating the Creed Brothers in a gauntlet match for the vacant titles that took place on the April 12 edition of NXT.
The Creed Brothers won the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic earlier this year, earning themselves a Tag Team title match. However, it wasn’t until Stand & Deliver in April where they were able to get their title match, losing a three-way to Imperium (Fabian Aichner and Marcel Barthel) and champions MSK.
Despite facing Pretty Deadly on tonight’s show, The Creeds have also been focused on recent tension between themselves and Roderick Strong, the leader of Diamond Mine. He told the Creeds on Tuesday that if they were unable to win the Tag Team titles tonight, they would be out of the group.
