Chris King gives his insight on how The Undisputed Era winning the NXT Tag Team Championships, on this week’s episode of NXT was ill-timed and should have been delayed for a short period of time.
The Street Profits won the NXT Tag Team Championships during a hellacious Fatal-4-Way Ladder Match at NXT TakeOver: XXV. Since then, they have been appearing weekly on Raw, delivering hyped backstage promos “bringing the smoke” exciting the WWE Universe with their unmatched charisma.

Much to the shock of the NXT Universe, Dawkins and Ford successfully defended their titles against Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish at TakeOver: Toronto. However, it was only due to a technicality, as Fish made the tag to O’Reilly prior to being pinned and losing the match.
Of course, O’Reilly and Fish wouldn’t allow a false finish keep their undisputed prophecy (with all four members of the group holding gold) from becoming a reality. So on this week’s episode of NXT, the two teams did battle once again, except for this time the result was Fish and O’Reilly becoming the first-ever three-time NXT Tag Team Champions.
The #UndisputedERA’s golden prophecy is coming closer to fruition following a thrilling main event that saw @theBobbyFish & @KORcombat unseat The #StreetProfits as NXT Tag Team Champions. #WWENXThttps://t.co/tP5YE2cYjF

I don’t for any reason believe that Undisputed Era winning was a mistake, I just disagree with The Street Profits losing the titles this early after winning them a few months ago. I thought for sure Dawkins and Ford would have, either kept the championships until the debut episode on the USA Network or until TakeOver: War Games III.
Since The Street Profits are no longer NXT Tag Team Champions, they will most likely be booted to the back of the line. Sadly all the momentum they’ve gained over the last few months will be diminished. I imagine Dawkins and Ford will begin feuding with The Forgotten Sons for the time being.
