The War Raiders defeated Aleister Black and Ricochet to retain the NXT Tag Team Championships
Lots of flips and dives during this one. The finish saw Ricochet miss a 630 and land with a thud. This setup a double team leg drop by Hanson off the top rope with Rowe holding Ricochet to get the pinfall to retain the titles.
