Former tag team partners Amir Jordan and Kenny Williams met in the main event of the 5/6 NXT UK episode. The stipulation was that the loser must leave the brand and Amir Jordan was defeated in the No DQ match.

Their partnership came to an end when Williams turned on Jordan during their NXT UK Tag Title match against Pretty Deadly (Lewis Howley & Sam Stoker).
