Indi Hartwell & Candice LeRae capture NXT Women's Tag Team Titles

Originally published at Indi Hartwell & Candice LeRae capture NXT Women's Tag Team Titles

The main event of this week’s NXT was a no disqualification match for the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships. Going into the match as champions were Shotzi Blackheart and Ember Moon who won the titles the night the belts were introduced to the NXT brand. They put their titles on the line against the duo of Indi Hartwell and Candice LeRae who left as champions.

Their bout went past the 10 PM EST mark and it included Shotzi Blackheart falling through ladders, jumping off the top of platforms and Indi Hartwell hitting a springboard elbow drop through a table. In the end, it was LeRae getting the pin over Blackheart to win the tag titles for herself and Indi.

Thus far, there have been three sets of NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions: The two teams who competed in the main event of the 5/4 show along with Dakota Kai and current NXT Women’s Champion Raquel Gonzalez.

The upNXT crew will be reviewing tonight’s show and that audio review is going to be available on the POST podcast feed.

Appropriately wild match, but I thought it had some timing issues towards the end, based on how quickly Shotzi and Indi returned to the ring following the dive through the announce table. Indi was put through that table, but then maybe a minute or less later she returned to do that springboard elbow. Potentially missed live but caught on the replay was Candice using brass knuckles en route to pinning Shotzi, following up her power of the punch with the Wicked Stepsister on a chair.
