It was nice while it lasted. Factions and groups have been a part of wrestling for years and that has certainly been the case in WWE as well. The company has come up with all kinds of alliances over its history with some of them being more memorable than others. Almost all of them have to come to an end at some point though and that was the case again this week.

The main event of this week’s edition of NXT saw MSK successfully defend their Tag Team Titles against Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch. Following the loss, Lorcan and Burch’s friends Ridge Holland and Pete Dunne came to the ring and attacked the two of them to end the show. This came after Dunne had told Lorcan and Burch to win the titles and take out MSK for good. The four have teamed together on and off for about a year, though Burch missed several months due to an injury.

That was a nasty moment. Check out the match and brawl, thoughts from Holland and Dunne and what the team looked like before:

MSK vs. Danny Burch & Oney Lorcan – NXT Tag Team Championship Match: WWE NXT, Sept. 7, 2021

Pete Dunne & Ridge Holland explain their attack: NXT Exclusive, Sept. 7, 2021

Ridge Holland punishes Timothy Thatcher with help of Dunne, Burch & Lorcan: WWE NXT, Aug. 24, 2021

Opinion: One of the downsides to the recent set of changes to WWE is that you have to wonder if such a sudden change of course would suggest the end of the road for Burch and Lorcan. The two are NXT veterans and don’t quite fit the new NXT criteria. I’ve liked both guys for a bit, though seeing them on a list of new releases would not surprise me. It’s a shame in a way, but it would not be much of a shock to see them on the way out.

What do you think of the split? What is next for all of them? Let us know in the comments below.
