The Genius of the Sky witnessed her best friend be beaten and broken by Shayna Baszler. “What Shayna did was terrible.” Io vows to get the Horsewomen back, but the get her first!

It’s almost time for the Time Splitter to arrive.

Kushida signed his NXT contract on TakeOver night, and his Full Sail debut is coming. He vows to show the WWE Universe and NXT Universe that he can bring his own Japanese Strong Style to Full Sail.

NXT General Manager William Regal speaks on Kushida’s coming debut.

How excited is he? Incredibly excited but also relieved! It took a lot of hard work to make this deal happen. This is truly a great moment. But then currently NXT UK star, Kassius Ohno, appears. Regal congratulates Ohno on his UK run, and Ohno admits he’s been crushing it. This has been a humbling experience for Ohno to be the one teaching the young stars some genuine British wrestling. Ohno congratulates Regal back on signing Kushida. But who knows Japanese Strong Style better than Ohno? No one. So why not make Kushida VS Ohno for his debut? Regal thinks that’s an excellent idea. Next week, Kushida VS Ohno it will be! Will the Wrestling Genius be too much for the Time Splitter to handle in his first NXT match? Or is Ohno overestimating his own ability to solve the Super Junior?

 

The War/Viking Raiders VS The Street Profits!

It doesn’t matter what their names are, two Nordic behemoths are still two behemoths. Plus, they’re still the NXT Tag Team Champions! But will going back and forth between Full Sail and Raw cost them this match against the #CurseofGreatness?

Dawkins eats the rebound lariat German Suplex! Tag back to Rowe, and Ford is all alone. The Vikings drags Ford up for THOR’S HAMMER!! Cover, Rowe & Hanson win!

Winners: The War/Viking Raiders, Rowe pinning

The NXT Tag Team Champions are still dominant as ever! Will they lose those titles before going full-time to Raw? Or will they simply give them up for bigger and better treasures?

 

Backstage interview with Mia Yim.

With everything going on in the NXT Women’s Division, Shayna is still dominating and imposing her will. Mia doesn’t want to interrupt, but yes, Shayna’s seemingly unstoppable. Though it’s not the way Mia would do it, but look what Shayna did to Kairi and Io! Even Bianca Belair couldn’t get it done in two matches. In Mia’s match with Shayna, Mia learned a lot about herself and the Queen of Spades. Mia wants another shot, and she will prove to everyone that the Head Baddie in Charge IS a threat to Shayna’s reign. Will GM Regal honor this request and make it happen?

 

Johnny Gargano VS Roderick Strong!

Johnny Wrestling defied the odds and expectations by overcoming Adam Cole and the entire Undisputed Era in that insane TakeOver: New York Best 2 Out of 3 Falls Match! But then being a sore loser, Cole orchestrated an ambush on Johnny Champion his first night back at Full Sail. And despite what Cole expected, Gargano chose to take on the Savior of the Backbreaker who threw the first knee. Will Gargano start a win streak against Undisputed opponents? Or will it be Strong that earns himself a title shot before Cole gets his second?

Exclusive interview with Jordan Devlin.

The Irish Ace will get what he wants: a match with the NEW WWE United Kingdom Champion, Walter. “What are my feelings on my big match with Walter next week in New York?” He’d normally be happy and talk a big game, but he won’t. Because to protect the rematch of the century of Dunne VS Walter II, this is a non-title match. Devlin isn’t a fool, he sees what everyone wants. Everyone wants Dunne VS Walter to tear the house down again, but Devlin doesn’t. Devlin doesn’t care about what fans want. He doesn’t care about what Dunne and Walter want. Devlin vows to beat and hurt Walter next week so that he will be the undeniable challenger to that WWE UK Championship. He will show us all why you never bet against the Ace.

 

The Hunt returns next week!

The Wild Boar and the Primate will return, but who will be their next prey?

 

Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner took a tour of Wrestlemania Axxess.

To them, this was all just a circus. And what is this? Champ Yourself? Pretend to be champions with pretend belts? The European Alliances say that’s what exactly the problem is. Playing pretend with a fake belt and a fake ring, it’s disgusting. Look at this. The fake entrance ramp, too. Fans get to do what the wrestlers work so hard to earn? No one understands, but that is the difference between you and them. Because to them, this means so much more than anyone could ever imagine. To them, the ring is sacred.

 

Toni Storm is here!

The Lightning from Down Under is in New York with her NXT UK Women’s Championship as she heads to the ring. “Welcome to NXT UK in New York City!” Toni feels so awesome representing this brand on the most important weekend of the year, Wrestlemania! And she successfully defended her title a few weeks ago in a close match. But that got her thinking. NXT UK is home to some of the most talented women in the world. She may not like her, but she’s had killer matches with Rhea Ripley. There’s Xia Brookside, Nina Samuels and even Piper Niven! But that said, this is Toni Storm, and she will be champion “for a long, long time.” The Mae Young Classic 2 winner is the second NXT UK Women’s Champion, but will she really be champion for much longer?

But as Toni makes her leave, Kay Lee Ray makes her entrance! The other new addition to the roster wants Toni to remember she’s here. What will KLR do to make her mark in NYC?

Kay Lee Ray VS Xia Li!

It’s another crossover of NXT UK and USA as the Killer Lass takes on the spicy martial artist! Who makes the biggest impact across both Women’s Divisions at Wrestlemania Axxess?

The bell rings on this first-ever encounter. Xia and KLR tie up and KLR gets a wristlock. KLR gives a quick shoulder breaker, then wrenches again. Xia slips through to wrench back, but KLR spins to hammerlock. Xia reaches back to headlock, then takedown. KLR headscissors back but Xia pops out, and fans cheer this early exchange. KLR calls for a test of strength, but toys with Xia by switching hands. And then she shows her height advantage. Xia jumps up to get it though! She has the knuckle locks but KLR breaks free to wrench and yank Xia around. Xia rolls and handsprings to break free, but KLR stays away from those martial arts kicks! KLR uses the corner for defense, and Xia backs off, but KLR gets a cheap shot in.

KLR throws forearms and then rams shoulders into Xia in the corner. She lets up at the ref’s count then whips corner to corner. Xia goes up and over and then comes back with a dropkick! Cover, TWO! Xia goes after KLR on the ropes but KLR holds ropes. KLR then wrenches to SUPERKICK and throw Xia into a post! KLR stomps a mudhole into Xia then drags her up. She forearms Xia hard but backs off as Xia gasps for air. Fans rally as KLR hammerlocks Xia to throw her back into buckles! KLR drags Xia up to snapmare to a seated stretch. Xia endures as KLR bends her back and digs knuckles into ribs. Fans rally harder and Xia pops out. Xia powers up and arm-drags KLR hard. KLR comes back for another hammerlock but Xia spins it around to throw KLR into buckles.

KLR comes back but gets jabs and back hands! Xia gives KLR knees to the head then a leaping snapmare! Fans fire up as Xia kicks KLR in the back! Xia dares KLR to get up, swing and a miss but the heel kick gets her! Cover, TWO! KLR lives and Xia can’t believe it! Xia heads to a corner and hops up, then leaps, only for KLR to get under. KLR CHOPS and SUPERKICKS then back hooks to hit Widow’s Peak! Cover, KLR wins!

Winner: Kay Lee Ray, by pinfall

And that’s 1-2-3 for KLR in NYC! The NXT UK Women’s Champion may have overlooked her before, but will she have to acknowledge KLR now?

 

NXT UK Media found Piper Niven at Wrestlemania Axxess.

The Scottish Viper was finishing up a meet ‘n’ greet as they noted her run-ins with Rhea Ripley. Rhea is definitely a phenomenal athlete, but Piper knows Rhea’s a bully. Piper doesn’t like bullies. Let’s see how Rhea likes it when she finds someone she can’t just push around. When and where will Piper and Rhea finally settle things in the ring?

 

Something’s happening backstage!

The Grizzled Young Veterans are throwing around the ring gear and luggage of Kenny Williams and Amir Jordan! Zack Gibson and James Drake are furious! Kenny & Amir haven’t done a thing to deserve their spots on this roster. GYV are locker room leaders. They are forcing the Lucky Yin and Bhangra Bad Boy to change in the halls! Will Gibson & Drake pay for being locker room bullies?

 

Moustache Mountain VS Flash Morgan Webster & Mark Andrews!

Tyler Bate & Trent Seven are good friends with the Modfather and the High-Fiving, Stage-Diving Welsh Rockstar, but that doesn’t mean friends can’t have a friendly match. Will it be the Big Strong Boys or the Welsh Air Force take the win in New York?

The teams sort out and we start with Bate and #Mandrews with the bell. Andrews and Bate hear the fans sing as they circle. Bate and Andrews shake hands to show this is respectful. They tie up and Bate wrenches Andrews around to a wristlock. Andrews rolls and reverses the wrench to a standing armlock. Andrews brings Bate down to the mat but Bate powers his way up.

My Thoughts:

Another great episode of NXT UK in New York. We open with a nice bit of action of Ohno VS Ligero. A good match and it was best for Ohno to win so that his story doesn’t fall flat. Of course, he probably should’ve won against Travis Banks last time for the same reason. A Heel’s mission of establishing their own philosophy only works if it doesn’t fail until the very end. Or if it fails over and over. Either way, Ohno should’ve been on a different streak than 50-50 booking. Toni Storm had a good promo and it was timely for Kay Lee Ray to show up to bring up that she’s around. KLR VS Li was good, and naturally the NXT UK superstar wins. KLR very may well be Toni’s next challenger given Rhea VS Piper is happening and there aren’t other women ready to challenge Toni.

Devlin’s interview for his coming match with Walter was well done. It’s good story to have him be upset he’s not getting a title shot first, but who knows? Maybe he does well enough that Johnny Saint will have to grant him a shot. Maybe a triple threat for the title? Or Devlin takes on the winner of Walter VS Dunne for a rematch either way. GYV had a decent promo with throwing around Kenny’s and Amir’s gear. It still seems like their tag title match will happen after all, but I’d think GYV still wins. Moustache Mountain VS Andrews & Webster was incredible, worthy of a tag title match in itself. Bate & Seven win and should be the proper second tag team champions for NXT UK to parallel Dunne’s own reign as the second-ever WWE UK Champion.

My Score: 8.3/10
