NXT Results and Reactions 05.13
The Imperium become new NXT Tag Team Champions
Aichner and Barthel targeted the Broserweights to get their way in having a title match. There plan was a success as the Broserweights split up during the match. Riddle accidentally knocked Thatcher off his corner. Riddle tried to reach out for a tag but Thatcher dissed him and walked away.
It was now a handicap match and Riddle did his best to survive. Imperium took control and they hit their finisher for the win.
Reaction: The Broserweights are not the same without Pete Dunne. However, Dunne did recommend Thatcher to Riddle. That did not go well. Thatcher is not in the same level as Riddle when it comes to the attitude and charisma. If this is a way to break up the Broserweights completely, than it was the best way.
For Imperium, they overcame the obstacle and finally become the new NXT Tag Team Champions.
