Tag Team title match set for NXT TakeOver: Chicago


The Undisputed Era's Tag Team Championship challengers have been announced for NXT TakeOver: Chicago.

Kyle O'Reilly & Roderick Strong will be defending their titles against Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch at the special. Alongside Pete Dunne, Lorcan and Burch have been involved in a program with the Undisputed Era heading into TakeOver. The championship match was announced last night after being set up when Burch pinned O'Reilly in a six-man tag on the episode that aired the previous week.

Lorcan & Burch challenging for the titles coincides with it being confirmed last month that Burch had signed a full-time deal with WWE.

TakeOver: Chicago will be held at the Allstate Arena on June 16th as part of Money in the Bank weekend. It's just a few days before WWE's United Kingdom brand shows at Royal Albert Hall on June 18th and 19th, and there will be NXT North American, Women's, and Tag Team title matches on the second night in London.
