Mustache Mountain implodes on NXT UK

Former NXT Tag Team champions Tyler Bate and Trent Seven, aka Mustache Mountain, have split up on NXT UK.

The team teamed up on the British independent circuit in the mid-2010s in promotions such as Progress and Defiant Wrestling. They were signed to Vince McMahon’s company in 2017 to compete individually in WWE’s United Kingdom Championship Tournament, which Tyler Bate won. He and Trent then reformed their union when NXT UK went on air in 2018.

However, it now appears that their longstanding union is finally coming to an end after the events of this week’s NXT UK. After the team dropped their tag team championships to Oliver Carter and Ashton Smith, Trent Seven came out to announce his retirement, which turned out to be a Mark Henry-esque evasion, while attacking Tyler Bate instead.

This marks the end of a very successful run for Mustache Mountain, who won both the NXT and NXT UK Tag Team Championships during their time as a tag team.

It will be interesting to see what WWE has in store for Bate and Seven in the coming weeks. You can read more about Mustache Mountain by clicking here.
