As soon as the match ends manager Malcolm Bivens comes out and congratulates Oney Lorcan. This gives Ever-Rise an opening to assault Lorcan and Burch from behind. Bivens sends the huge tag team of Rinku and Gurjar in the ring to inflict more pain on Lorcan and Burch. Graves asks who on NXT can stop this team?
