Wolverhampton's Trent Seven and Netherton's Tyler Bate teamed up to be crowned the tag team champions of WWE's NXT brand.

And they did it on British soil as well, holding the belts aloft at London's Royal Albert Hall after a match against the Undisputed Era team of Kyle O'Reilly and Roderick Strong.

The crowd serenaded the Black Country duo known as Moustache Mountain with chants of 'You deserve it' after their title triumph.

And wrestling legend Triple H - also the chief operating officer of WWE - later took to Twitter to congratulate Seven and Bate.

Both were involved in the inaugural WWE UK Championship in 2017 and have since been part of WWE programming - with a new United Kingdom-based show set to feature the pair - as well as Chelmsley Wood's Pete Dunne, the current UK champion.
