On August 2, The Street Profits won a title match against the NXT Tag Team Champions The Undisputed ERA but did not win the titles due to winning by disqualification. Two days later a title rematch with No Disqualification rules was held, resulting in The Undisputed ERA retaining the championship against The Street Profits.
