Wolfgang adds insult to injury as he rains down more rights on Flash! Fans boo but Wolfgang barks at the ref. The ref gets Wolfgang to leave Flash alone, but Wolfgang leaves on his own time. Is Wolfie going to be a wild card in the NXT UK Division?
Kassius Ohno speaks.
“It is absolutely, without a doubt, mind-boggling” that the guy to show NXT UK that authentic UK style is an American. The Knockout Artist has had a rough return to NXT, and told Full Sail that he was done with them. He moves on to NXT UK to start fresh. Ohno has stood toe-to-toe with some of the British legends, past and present. “These guys are good, these guys are talented”, but they’re just copies of Bret Hart or Shawn Michaels. They want to claim this is their brand? They don’t realize the opportunity they were handed! NXT UK has time to show what British Wrestling really is, but it’s just a tribute. Learn what real British strong style is against the wrestling genius, Kassius Ohno.
Kenny Williams & Amir Jordan VS Tyson T-Bone & Saxton Huxley!
The Luckyan isn’t ready to dance with the Bhangra Bad Boy, but he will still team with him. But can this team’s luck be tested against the King of the Gypsies and Divine Beast?
The teams sort out and Williams starts against Huxley. T-Bone fires Huxley up before he circles with Williams. They tie up and Williams gets a headlock. Huxley powers out and runs Williams over, then drags him up to lift. Williams wheelbarrow rolls, TWO! Williams gets Huxley’s arm and manages to bring him down, to drop a leg on the arm!

Winners: Amir Jordan & Kenny Williams, Jordan pinning
Their second ever victory! Was this lightning striking twice? Or are Williams & Jordan finally getting some momentum? Will they turn this into a shot at the NXT UK Tag Team Championships?
NXT UK Media interviews Jinny.
The Fierce Fashionista claimed that it wouldn’t matter if it was Rhea Ripley or Toni Storm- Oh wow, is this interview really only happening because Toni isn’t available? Jinny is “sick and tired of hearing that girl’s name.” It’s #ToniTime? Jinny doesn’t care. She only cares about the NXT UK Women’s Championship. Having that title makes you the center of attention, and the only person worthy of the spotlight is Jinny. If they have anything else to ask, go find Toni Storm. Will the Spoiled Princess promote herself to NXT UK’s Queen after facing the champ?
Eddie Dennis speaks.
“Next week, I return from exile when I take on Ligero”, a man who has been a mainstay of UK wrestling for 20 years. Ligero is a man who Dennis respects, but warns is in the wrong place at the wrong time. Dennis vowed to take down the roster one by one, and Ligero is “just the first victim in a long line”. Will the Light be dimmed by the malevolent Welshman?
Noam Dar returns to NXT UK!
The Scottish Supernova is back from his return to 205 Live to return to this other rising brand. Dar says “Hello, hello, hello.” It feels so great to be back, “and this time, the Scottish Supernova is here to stay.” Fans like the sound of that! While Dar was traveling all over showing 205 Live and the WWE his many, many talents, he’s been keeping his eye on NXT UK. This place has been doing pretty good, right? Fans agree with that. Dar feels it’ll do even better when next month, this show finally goes to the most beautiful place in the UK. They will go to Glasgow, Scotland! The British fans aren’t as excited for that, but Dar mocks them. “Oh he said where we’re not from~.”
For anyone who doesn’t know, Dar was here at the very start of this brand, showing what a true superstar looks like. And since then, Dar’s been watching from afar, “while all these dafties in the back” try to fill Dar’s big, golden boots. Yes, big golden boots. No one has, though. The UK roster has been doing okay, maybe a 4/10 at most. But NXT UK needs Dar. The deal’s done, the contract’s signed, this isn’t just a special guest appearance like when Kenny Williams and Flash Morgan Webster came and went from 205 Live, or like Mark Andrews getting dropped on his head by Buddy Murphy, “riding out on his wee skateboard.” They weren’t ready for action in the States, but NXT UK wont’ be ready for the blinding light of a Supernova.
But Mark Andrews begs to differ! The Welsh Rockstar hits the ring and Dar tries to say it was just a joke. Dar wants Andrews to keep his cool, but then he tries to sucker punch him! Andrews gets Dar first with an enziguri! Andrews looks ready for Dar, when and where will these two meet in a match?
Xia Brookside speaks.
The second-generation superstar is proud to be a Brookside. Though it has it’s own difficulties. Coming from a wrestling family got Xia bullied, but she learned to stand up for herself. She hates bullies, and the biggest one here is Rhea Ripley. Rhea has bullied Xia and others since day one, but Xia won’t stand for it anymore. This isn’t the same Xia from before. The next time they meet in the ring, Rhea learns that the hard way.
The Hunt begins very soon.
The Wild Boar and the Primate are on their way back. Who will be their prey next week?
Kay Lee Ray VS Candy Floss!
The Scottish Daredevil makes her NXT UK in-ring debut against the sugary sweet young superstar from London. Will KLR take over NXT UK?
The bell rings and fans cheer for KLR. She and Candy tie up and KLR gets the arm. She wrenches and kicks to bring Candy around for a shoulder breaker. KLR wrenches more but Candy rolls through to reverse the wristlock. KLR slips through to forearm Candy down! Fans cheer as KLR circles and toys with Candy. KLR brings Candy up for a double wristlock and rams her into the buckles. She brings Candy up to wrap and pull the arm against the ropes. Fans sing for Kay Lee as she swings on Candy. Candy dodges and rolls her, TWO! Candy runs but into KLR’s dropkick! KLR stomps away on Candy at the ropes but backs up at 4. Fans rally as KLR drags Candy up. Candy throws body shots and forearms but KLR shoves her back. KLR CHOPS and SUPERKICKS Candy, then Gory Bombs! Cover, KLR wins!
Winner: Kay Lee Ray, by pinfall
Putting the K L R in killer, Kay Lee Ray puts Candy away without breaking a sweat. Will she do much of the same to the other women of NXT UK?
Moustache Mountain speaks.
“So, the first round of the Dusty Cup is done, and dusted, thank you.” Trent Seven & Tyler Bate put the Street Profits out of business and they’re moving on against the Forgotten Sons. But these two haven’t forgotten a thing in NXT UK. They want a rematch with Grizzled Young Veterans, but know Zack Gibson has a bad toe. Or at least a bruised ego. But James Drake is ready, so Bate will talk with Johnny Saint to get a match. The Big Strong Boys are busy, but they’re ready to take both tag team divisions. Will Bate get his match with Mr. Mayhem? And make sure to watch tonight’s American NXT to see how Moustache Mountain does against Steve Cutler & Wesley Blake!
Johnny Saint & Sid Scala speak on Tyler Bate’s request.
Bate VS Drake is an amazing match-up, so they’ll make it happen! It’ll be next week’s main event! And speaking of, head and assistant GM are ready to watch tonight’s main event right now!
The Coffey Brothers VS Pete Dunne & WALTER!
Joe and Mark have wanted to make NXT UK their kingdom from the first day they arrived. They want to dominate from singles to tag team wrestling, and look to do both at once against the WWE United Kingdom Champion and the Austrian Anomaly. Will Gallus get its way against the Bruiserweight and the Ring General? Or will Dunne and Walter be united against common enemies?
Teams sort out and Dunne starts against Mark Coffey. The bell rings and Dunne circles with Mark. They tie up and Mark pushes Dunne to the ropes. Mark lets up at 3 but fans chant for the Bruiserweight. Dunne and Mark tie up again and Dunne gets an arm. Dunne wrenches to a keylock and brings Mark to the mat. He works the arm from wrist to elbow but Mark endures. Mark gets up and arm-drags Dunne off but the two stand off. Fans cheer as Mark and Dunne circle again. They tie up and Mark wrenches Dunne’s arm now. Mark gets a wristlock but Dunne rolls and handsprings through to a reversal. Dunne has Mark’s arm for a hammerlock stomp! Dunne grabs the arm and Walter calls for a tag. He gets it! Dunne wrenches Mark and hands him off to Walter.

The brawling goes around the corners and Joe clubs Walter while Dunne forearms Mark. Walter CHOPS Joe, and then together with Dunne, simultaneous suplexes putting the Coffey Brothers on the apron!

Dunne goes back to the corner while Walter throws hands on Joe. Walter snapmares to a cover but Joe kicks out fast. Walter wrenches Joe and tags in Dunne. Dunne CHOPS Joe and keeps him from Mark.

Mark has the belt but Walter boots him down! WALTER BOMB! Cover, Walter & Dunne win!
Winners: WALTER & Pete Dunne, Walter pinning
The Ring General seemingly saves the Bruiserweight from Gallus, but that’s all it was about. Walter and Dunne still stare down because they each want to be the best in NXT UK. Dunne reaches for the belt, but Walter stands on it. Walter reaches down and grabs the belt, takes a long look at it, but hands it back to Dunne. Fans applaud the show of respect, but when and where will these two finally face each other? Will Walter be the man to finally dethrone Dunne?
What a great NXT UK! At least it certainly was by the end. Wolfgang VS Webster was a good match, but it made sense later why Andrews didn’t come out to help. Andrews confronts Dar, who is now being Heel by default because he’s Scottish and he was active other places. Andrews VS Dar is going to be a great match, but I’m thinking Dar wins because he’s going to have an extended stay in NXT UK. It also sounds like Kassius Ohno is going to be around for a lengthy amount of time, which is a shame because that apparently means he won’t have a blow-off match with Keith Lee. But Ohno is a good addition, though obviously as a Heel. I wonder if he’ll be someone for Dave Mastiff to make a return off of.
Eddie Dennis is also on his way back, and I’m going to assume he beats Ligero or else his story is meaningless. The Primate and Wild Boar will surely win their return, because why else would they be getting this hype? I was really glad to see Williams & Jordan win again, NXT UK needs more strong Face tag teams. Moustache Mountain may or may not win tonight in the Dusty Rhodes Classic for American NXT, but they’re definitely going to have another shot at the NXT UK Tag Team Championships. I’m thinking Bate & Seven win that rematch, but chances are it won’t happen until the new NXT UK TakeOver. Jinny VS Toni is probably on hold until TakeOver, too. KLR already looks to be a strong choice for contender after that. Xia VS Rhea is going to be great, too, Xia probably loses first to then make a comeback.
Dunne & Walter VS The Coffey Brothers was amazing. It felt like a TakeOver level match, and everyone looked so great. It is just obvious that Dunne VS Walter is for the WWE UK Championship and that will surely be at UK TakeOver. The Coffey Brothers should focus more on tag team wrestling for the time being, and it can circle back around to Gallus VS British Strong Style at a future UK TakeOver. When Dunne VS Walter happens, I’m feeling Walter will win. If Dunne doesn’t lose to Walter, then who ever will take that belt from him? Walter wins to freshen things up, and Walter can run through a string of contenders much like Dunne and eventually give us Walter VS Dunne rematch at whatever UK TakeOver lines up with a Big Four WWE PPV, probably Royal Rumble 2020.
My Score: 8.5/10
