The inaugural NXT UK Tag Team Champions have been named, and they don’t have moustaches, and they don’t live on a mountain.
That’s right, defying all the odds, Zack Gibson and James Drake are your champions after defeating Moustache Mountain in a great opener at NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool.

Both teams got plenty of offence in, and for much of the match, it looked as though Bate and Seven were going to win, particularly after escaping from tandem Shankley Gates.
But once Bate was taken out with an assisted suicide dive, Seven was left stranded. He was then hit with an elevated lung-buster for the pin.
A great moment for Gibson and Drake. Plus, those titles are sexy.
