Alexander Wolfe and Eric Young captured the NXT Couples Championships by defeating The Authors of Pain in what was NXT TakeOver’s second fight: Brooklyn III. In addition, Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish made themselves known after the race to self-declare as future title challenger.
The yellow label holds its third TakeOver in Brooklyn, New York, and after an incredible battle between Andrade Cien Almas and Johnny Gargano, Authors of Pain collided with Sanity, where Eric Young’s factional mind games were key to Get the victory.
In the fight all members of Sanity played a crucial role, especially at the end of the show, where Nikki Cross and Killian Dain neutralized one of the Authors to secure the victory of Young and Wolfe.
However, the happiness of the new monarchs did not last long, and the REDragon, Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish appeared to beat up both new and old champions.
