Kyle O'Reilly and Bobby Fish are the NXT Tag Team Champions once more, having bested the Street Profits in the final match of last night's NXT television tapings at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida.

WWE.com have confirmed the news. Further details are scarce, though attendee JJ Williams uploaded the following images to Twitter after the title change:-

This is the third time an Undisputed Era tandem have held the straps and reign number two for Fish and O'Reilly, whose first title win was over Sanity at TakeOver: Brooklyn III in 2017. The Freebird Rule was implemented to allow Adam Cole and Roderick Strong to step in as O'Reilly's partner when Fish was injured, with their collective run lasting 202 days.

The tapings also brought several big hints for the next TakeOver event (WarGames - 23 November), with Shayna Baszler battling NXT UK's Rhea Ripley, Johnny Gargano running foul of Shane Thorne, and Strong and Velveteen Dream continuing their rivalry, though NXT Champion Adam Cole's direction remains unclear.

There's no word on when the Undisputed Era/Street Profits title change will air, though its positioning on the tapings suggests it's a few weeks away.
