Toni wants that NXT UK Women’s Championship once it’s here, but what does that mean for her match with Dakota? Her preparations don’t change. She always fights to win. Dakota wants the title as much as Toni, but Dakota isn’t Toni. Speaking of, here comes Dakota. She respects Toni completely, but she isn’t playing around about kicking heads off to get what she wants. So as good as Toni is, Dakota vows to be a little bit better.

Ashton Smith VS ???
The young man from Manchester is ready to “Woop!” his opponent, but Wolfgang and the Coffey Brothers attack at the stage! This alliance of sadistic Scots assault Ashton, then toss him aside. Fans jeer as Joe, Mark and Wolfie come down the ramp together. Joe grab a mic to speak for the trio, saying “Royal Albert Hall. Ever since then, myself and my brother have been imposing our will on everyone and anyone.” Fans continue to jeer with “No~ one knows what you’re saying~!” Joe ignores them to say that they don’t care if the NXT UK Universe likes them, because they don’t like the NXT UK Universe!
Joe reveals that at the Royal Albert Hall, he had an epiphany. He likes to surround himself with people who have the same mentality. Fans jeer with “What? What?” but Joe continues to say that whether it’s his blood or someone who takes pride in doing things their way. NXT has a heirarchy, and if you aren’t on their level, they will dispose you! No more British Strong Style! No more big strong boys! These three are true men! It doesn’t matter who likes them, because from now on, it’s a pack mentality. That means divide and conquer. That means pride and unity. Because that makes NXT UK their kingdom! Will this trio of titans take over all of the UK Division?

Eddie Dennis VS Sid Scala!
The Headmaster has told us these past few weeks of his storied past with Pete Dunne and Mark Andrews. He gave up his job in education to pursue his first love of pro-wrestling so that his friends wouldn’t leave him behind. But is he driven by passion? Or by bitterness?

Both men are in each other’s face right away, but back down to wait for the bell. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we begin! Fans duel as both men circle. They tie up and Dunne pushes Burch back. Burch stops that so Dunne throws Burch. Burch slips out under the mount to get a hammerlock. Dunne works his way up and under to drop toehold Burch. Burch gets to the ropes, so Dunne lets go to kick Burch in the back! Burch shrugs it off, he’s tougher than that. The two circle again, and tie up. Fans rally as Burch pushes Dunne. Burch gets around to a full nelson but Dunne breaks out, so Burch snapmares Dunne down. Burch CHOPS Dunne on the back! Dunne shrugs that off, because he’s tougher than that.

Burch lets Dunne go, but then Dunne drags Burch out and twists the ankle! Then X-Plex to the apron! Fans fire up on both sides as Dunne leaves Burch down and out.

What a match! The Governor gave The Bruiserweight a run for his money, but it just wasn’t enough. Burch has nothing to be ashamed off, he pushed Dunne as far as anyone, maybe even farther. Burch stands and Dunne gives him a nod of respect. Will Burch be back for another go? Will Dunne’s reign continue to achieve new heights?
NXT UK looks back to WWE Evolution.
Specifically, the Mae Young Classic’s tournament finals. NXT UK’s Toni Storm went up against the Genius of the Sky, Io Shirai, and it was incredible! They went toe to toe and move for move, and to even Toni’s surprise, she won! The MYC 2018 trophy belongs to her, but that’s just the beginning for the Lightning from Down Under! And her match tonight opens the show, next!
Dakota Kai VS Toni Storm!
The Captain of Team Kick was in the inaugural Mae Young Classic, but she lost in the quarterfinals to the Pirate Princess. She has fought her way up the ranks, but has not captured the American NXT Women’s Championship. Therefore, she looks to start fresh in the United Kingdom Division. However, she’ll have to get through this year’s MYC winner. Can Dakota ride the Storm? Or will the Storm kick her down the road?
The bell rings and fans chant for Toni as she circles with Dakota. They tie up and go around, but it’s Toni putting Dakota in a corner. Toni backs off cleanly and Dakota comes out.

But then someone attacks Dakota on stage! It’s JINNY! The Fashionista, who lost to Toni in this year’s MYC opening round, already claims “This is my NXT UK.” She’s been hyping herself up for weeks, is it finally time for the fiercest female to make her mark? As for Dakota, Toni helps her up and to the back. Will Dakota make sure Jinny doesn’t have her way?
Zack Gibson VS Amir Jordan!
Liverpool’s Number One has already vowed not to let the Bhangra Bad Boy be a speed bump on his way to the top. Will Gibson come to eat his words? Or will Jordan get locked behind the Shankly Gates?

Winner: Zack Gibson, by submission
Gibson doesn’t let go until he says to, and then he kicks Jordan out of the ring. Liverpool’s Number One wins again, and wants his way back to Pete Dunne’s title. Will Gibson get what he wants? Or will someone get in his way and show he’s not number one?
Zack Gibson hasn’t left the ring.
He paces about, then grabs a mic. Fans jeer him with new songs, but Gibson ignores them to say “I am Liverpool’s Number One!” And soon to be the World’s Number One! And soon to be recognized as the NXT UK’s Number One. Gibson stands in the ring once again victorious. He again reminds us that he won the 2018 WWE UK Championship Tournament, and that even after all that, he still pushed Pete Dunne to his limits. And then he beat 205 Live’s Noam Dar. “Every single day that I step into this ring is another step closer to become YOUR NXT UK Champion!” Fans disagree. Gibson says “this brand, this movement” is already the benchmark in British Wrestling. Fans still sing and jeer.
But Gibson says that the very best talent in this country flocked to this brand because they wanted to be part “of something special.” But none of the others in the locker room, just like none of the fans, are serious if they think Gibson will share the top spot. Gibson says he is the man to build this brand around. The rest of the roster just rides his coat tails! Gibson will be the one to elevate this brand, not the Bruiserweight, not Danny Burch, not– Trent Seven? The Man from Mustache Mountain appears, and he has a headache from listening to Gibson. Seven asks if Gibson is “completely delusional”. Fans say “Yes! Yes!”
But in seriousness, Seven has “no idea what goes on in that shiny, sweaty head” of Gibson’s. Fans make that a chant. Seven remembers back to the Empress Ballroom, where names like Dunne, Burch and Seven himself “kicked this whole thing off.” But hold on, where was Gibson? Gibson wasn’t on the promotional material or the social media. Was he in the audience? Oh, no, of course not. Gibson was in bed with a nice cup of tea and his mum’s laptop to watch the WWE Network! Gibson denies but the fans like that theory. Seven does give Gibson his dues, he was this year’s tournament winner. But he couldn’t get the job done, could he? However, Gibson did something pretty cool: he made everyone in the Royal Albert Hall take off their shoes. Fans again sing “If you hate Gibson, shoes up!”
Seven joins Gibson in the ring now, and brings up the names Gibson mentioned. But Gibson didn’t get to Seven, so how about they get to that right here and now?! The mics are dropped and the jacket’s off, but Gibson bails out. Gibson says he’ll face Seven on his time. And to a fair point, Gibson already competed once tonight. When will Liverpool’s Number One go up against Mustache Mountain’s Number One?
Kenny Williams speaks.
“The WWE Universe already met me on 205 Live”, back in the Cruiserweight Championship Tournament earlier this year. But now the NXT UK roster will find out while Kenny is the Luckyan. And the world will learn that he’s always lucky. Will luck help Kenny against Ireland’s iron man?
Kenny Williams VS Jordan Devlin!
The Luckyan was the Bullocks, but now he promises to be even better than that. He says he’s always lucky, but in his NXT UK debut, he’s up against a man who is always ready for a fight. Scotland and Ireland collide, who comes out not the luckier but the better?

Williams is shocked, but he gets back on Devlin. He brings Devlin to a corner but Devlin breaks free. Williams runs into a scoop but slips out. Devlin goes for ropes but Williams rolls him up!

Cover, Devlin wins!

Six Man Tag: Wolfgang & The Coffey Brothers VS Mark Andrews, Ashton Smith & Flash Morgan Webster!

Andrews and Webster looked to confront the Coffey boys for that, but they didn’t expect the Last King of Scotland joining forces with them!

Size and strength win, but so does sly strategy. Wolfgang and the Coffey Brothers stand tall, who will stand up to them next?
What another great two episodes! Eight matches that were all really good, but boy did that WWE UK Championship tear it down! That was probably the best match all week for WWE, and will still be even with American NXT and 205 Live still to come. Dunne raises his power level even higher, so that whoever defeats him will have to put on a truly powerful performance. The other matches of episode five were good, but the important development in that episode is the alliance of Wolfgang & The Coffey Brothers becoming official.
In episode 6, Toni VS Dakota was great, and like I said, that could end up a major NXT UK Women’s Championship match. Johnny Saint is definitely announcing the tournament for that next week, it’s the only thing it could be. Jinny makes her presence known, too, so she’ll definitely be a semifinalist in the tournament. Devlin VS Williams was a good match, and naturally Devlin wins to help build the Heel side of the midcard. Gibson VS Jordan was pretty fun, but I really like Seven getting on Gibson’s nerves. Seven VS Gibson can make for a great singles match, and if Gibson and James Drake join up as the “Grizzled Young Veterans”, they could give some great tag matches with Mustache Mountain. I’m thinking those tag titles are part of Saint’s announcement, too, so we’ll be getting more tag action as we go now.
The Six Man Tag was great, too, but not quite as amazing as the UK Championship match. It works for the Heels to go over, or else this feud would be over too soon. Maybe once Travis Banks is back, he’ll join up with Andrews and Webster to give the Scottish trio a loss. The feud probably ends with the Scotsmen still going over, and then those three move on to the WWE UK and NXT UK Tag Team Championships. The one thing that might divide the Scottish trio is that Joe wants both the top title and his part in the tag titles, which locks Wolfgang out of gold.
My Score(s): Episode 5 – 9/10; Episode 6 – 8.4/10
