This victory marks a significant milestone for DIY, who were once considered unlikely WWE stars. Their journey from NXT to main roster champions showcases WWE’s evolving talent development strategy.

By the numbers

• 2: Number of tag team championships DIY has now won in WWE

What they’re saying

Tommaso Ciampa: “These are the prettiest titles in all of the WWE.”

The big picture

DIY’s win represents a full-circle moment for the team, highlighting their growth from NXT standouts to main roster champions. It also emphasizes the changing landscape of WWE, where indie darlings can rise to top positions.
