It's disclosure time again. If you are not a fan of spoilers, there is no need to read any further.

Especially if you are looking forward to all that WWE has in store for NXT's tag team tournament.

All right, now with that out of the way, it's time to get down to business.

Big news from the NXT front, as it appears that tag team title tournament has come to an end and the company's first-ever tag champs have been crowned.

PWInsider.com revealed that Adrian Neville (FKA Pac) and Oliver Gray are the winners of the tourney and were crowned during Thursday night's NXT tapings from Full Sail University. Overall, this is a bit of a surprise, considering seasoned NXT stars like Epico and Primo were involved in the tournament.

That being said, this is a groundbreaking evening for NXT as it officially launches a proper tag team division for the company. The fact is, you can't continue to have tag matches with no prize at stake. Ultimately, it becomes monotonous and gives the wrestlers zero incentive to continue teaming up.

Not to mention, most fans enjoy seeing title matches, as it adds a bit more drama to the feud.

Hopefully the WWE will take a page from their developmental territory and put more focus on its tag team matches. Don't get me wrong, the current state of the company's tag division is better than it was a year ago. However, the WWE still has work to do if they want to bring it back to its former glory.

In the end, we will have to wait and see how much impact these titles will have on the division and the stars that hold them.
