As the winners got their belt, the mystery man held up the new NXT tag team champions’ hands. The mystery man turned out to be a returning Pat McAfee. However, we don’t know if McAfee attacked the original contenders backstage.

Hopefully, Strong and Fish will both be cleared soon. There were rumors about an Undisputed Era reunion with Adam Cole. WWE will soon update us all on the injury status if something major happens.
