A new pair of NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions have been crowned at NXT Vengeance Day.
During tonight’s premium live event, the duo of Kiana James and Fallon Henley took down Katana Chance and Kayden Carter in a shocking victory, claiming the titles. Late in the match, after Carter and Chance looked to be primed to win, James was able to push Katana Chance off the top rope, dumping her outside of the ring.
Back inside the ring, Henley began rolling up Kayden Carter, and James grabbed at Carter’s feet so she couldn’t kick out. Henley didn’t see, but the three count was counted anyway, declaring them the winner.
