Burch and Oney Lorcan defended their titles in the main event of last week’s program against Karrion Kross and NXT Champion Finn Balor. There was a point during the match that Burch was removed and he was shown on-camera being checked out by a doctor at ringside.
Lorcan finished the match by himself and ended up pinning Finn Balor after Kross ambushed his partner.
Burch and Lorcan captured the NXT Tag Team Championships in October by defeating Breezango (Tyler Breeze & Fandango). The two have been aligned with Pete Dunne and Pat McAfee as a part of their current run.
