PLAY BY PLAY
The NXT UK Women’s Championship has already had a wild history.
Toni Storm took the title from Rhea Ripley in Blackpool, but Jinny was immediately hot on her tail. This rivalry goes all the way back to their first meetings in PROGRESS Wrestling. The Spoiled Princess is laser focused on becoming the “hero” to the UK, India and the WWE Universe she feels we deserve. Will Jinny take the spotlight away from Toni? Or will the Lightning from Down Under strike tonight?
Travis Banks VS Kassius Ohno!
The Kiwi Buzzsaw has heard what the Knockout Artist has had to say about him, NXT UK’s roster and modern day British wrestling in general. Banks won’t let Ohno act like he’s the real deal without proving it. Will Ohno prove Banks as the first fraud on the roster?
The bell rings and Banks steps to Ohno but Ohno stays back in the corner. Fans boo Ohno as he takes his time circling with Banks. They tie up and Ohno gets Banks on the mat with an armlock. Ohno steps over but Banks stands up. Banks rolls but Ohno wrangles him back down. Banks gets up again as Ohno wrenches, to roll and nip up. Ohno resists but Banks still gets the wrench and armlock reversed. Fans cheer but Ohno grabs a leg. Ohno wrenches through to a headlock and grinds Banks down.

It was fast, but it was a win! The Kiwi Buzzsaw shows he’s smarter than the “Wrestling Genius”, but is this feud far from being over?
NXT UK, meet the NEW WWE United Kingdom Champion!
TakeOver: New York pitted the Bruiserweight against The Ring General, and though he never backed down, Pete Dunne was brought down by Walter’s clubbing forearms and chops. Dunne gave everything he had, but it just wasn’t enough to stop the Austrian Anomaly. And now, the record setting reign is over. Long Live WALTER!
Backstage interview with Jordan Devlin.
After what we saw on Friday, so many people are talking about a rematch. That’s all The Irish Ace has heard, too. He doesn’t care about that rematch. Dunne lost, he’s a loser. Devlin is a winner. Now it’s time for Devlin to take on Walter, and he’ll prove why you never bet against the Ace. But will Devlin have what it takes to trump Walter when Dunne didn’t?
Piper Niven VS Killer Kelly!
The Mosh Pit Kid, Rhea Ripley, declares herself the most dominant woman in NXT UK, but the Scottish Viper is here to refute that. Will Piper’s debut against the Portuguese Pitbull go her way? Or will Double K find a way to stop Piper’s roll before it gets started?
The bell rings and the fans are fired up for Piper. She and Kelly circle and tie up. Piper pushes Kelly down and looms over her. She offers a hand and helps Kelly up, showing she’s a good sport. Kelly and Piper go around again, and Piper gets the arm. Piper wristlocks then gets both hands, but Kelly breaks free to get a cravat. Fans rally as Kelly cranks Piper’s neck. Piper rolls but Kelly holds on. Piper powers out and runs Kelly over with a shoulder! She drags Kelly up now for a big scoop slam! Piper runs and drops the senton! Then a splash! Cover, TWO! Kelly survives but Viper Piper’s right on her with a cobra clutch. Fans rally again as Kelly works her way out of the hold.
Piper holds on as they both stand, then she whips Kelly into the corner. Piper runs in but Kelly sends her into buckles. Kelly fires body shots then runs, to boot Piper back! Fans rally both ways as Kelly drags Piper out. Kelly tries to suplex but Piper blocks and counters to a scoop. But Kelly slips around to a sleeper hold! Kelly is a backpack and Piper starts to fade. But Piper gets a second wind to ram Kelly into buckles. Piper elbows Kelly off her, then goes corner to corner for a CANNONBALL! But she’s not done there, she drags Kelly up for a scoop driver! Cover, Piper wins!
Winner: Piper Niven, by pinfall
The NXT UK in-ring debut is successful for the strong and agile Scottish superstar. But Rhea Ripley appears to try and ruin the celebration! Piper is ready and stares her down. Fans want them to “Fight! Fight!” and Piper’s ready, but Rhea reconsiders. Rhea promises to see Piper again soon, but when and where will she put her money where her mouth is about being the most dominant female on the brand?
NXT UK shares an interview from last week with Moustache Mountain.
Tyler Bate & Trent Seven were ready for Wrestlemania Axxess and the entire week. They’ll represent Moustache Mountain, British Strong Style and NXT UK all at once in the States! And what better way than with their old chums, Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster. That match is coming, who proves they can still get it done in tag team action?
The Grizzled Young Veterans speak.
“I am Liverpool’s Number One, Zack Gibson. This man is James Drake.” And together, the Grizzled Young Veterans are THE NXT UK Tag Team Champions. “At this crucial moment in time”, Gibson should be home to support his futbol club. But no, they’re headed to the States? The last time this happened, they had to defend the titles. But this time, it’ll be different. The GYV issue a non-title Open Challenge, Yanks need not apply. This is only for the NXT UK Tag Team Division and those “locker room leaders”. They dare any two to step to them, the team “SOON to be recognized” as the most important champions in the entire WWE. Who will answer such a challenge? Will that team beat the champions to prove they deserve a shot at the titles?
Jack Starz VS Joseph Conner!
The last time we saw Jack, he was seeing stars after being chopped by Walter. But will Starz manage a comeback? Or is he just the next “shiny new toy” to be broken by The Righteous Killer?
The bell rings and Conners glares at Starz as they tie up. Conners throws Starz down but Starz gets up quick. They tie up again and Conners wrangles Starz down for an armlock. Conners jams Starz’s arm then wrenches it again. Starz uses the ropes to flip through and then he rolls and rolls and cartwheels to a Northern Lights throw! Fans cheer as Starz has the armbar. Starz sits on it for a short arm scissors but Conners rolls to a cover. ONE and Starz holds onto the arm. Conners deadlifts Starz way up but Starz sunset flips! TWO, and Conners stomps Starz down! Conners then skins the cat up top, and leaps for a flying shoulder! Conners fires himself up but fans rally for Starz.
Starz sits up but Conners pulls him up by his ear. Conners shoves Starz to the ropes for a forearm to the back! Conners drops an elbow then taunts Starz before dropping another. Fans jeer Conners while he puts Starz in an armlock and chinbar. Starz endures being wrenched and pulled. Fans rally up and Starz fights his way up. Starz throws body shots but Conners shoves and headbutts Starz down! Conners drags Starz back up and whips, but Starz sunset flips! Conners breaks that to drop another elbow! Strangely, Conners wants to know if Starz is okay. He seem to only want to know to he can keep beating Starz up. Starz gets to a corner but Conners runs in for a big back elbow! Then an Atomic Toss! Starz crashes and writhes but Conners slithers over.
Conners drags Starz back up and reels him in for a lariat. Conners stalks Starz and brings him up again. Starz blocks the buckle bump then fires body shots! Starz bobs ‘n’ weaves, leap frog to European Uppercuts and a dropkick! Conners is in a corner, Starz runs in for another EuroUpper! Fans fire up as Starz climbs, and leaps! But Conners rolls through the crossbody, DON’T LOOK DOWN! Cover, Conners wins!
Winner: Joseph Conners, by pinfall
Starz looked down and fell, raising Conners up in the ranks. Conners shouts angrily at a buckle pad, or perhaps just the visualization of his next target. Will Conners continue to win all the way to a title match?
Dave Mastiff speaks.
“My dad was a harsh man. He loved me, but he wouldn’t tell me that. Because that was showing weakness.” Opening up like that was not how Black Country men are. Mastiff wants his dad to know what he’s made of his son. The Bomber dominates and destroys whoever is put in front of him. Mr. Mastiff, look at your son now. Who will be the next man crushed by the merciless Dave Mastiff?
NXT UK Women’s Championship: Toni Storm VS Jinny!
We already know the Spoiled Princess wants the crown, and that the Lightning Down Under won’t give it up so easily. Jinny is fierce and Toni is tough, but who will be THE NXT UK Women’s Champion when it’s all said and done?
The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we begin!
The two fire off right at the bell with furious hands! Jinny rocks Toni with a right then stomps her around the way! Toni hits back fast with palm strikes and a kick. Toni runs but Jinny blocks. Jinny swings but Toni dodges. Toni speeds up and redirects to dropkick Jinny down. Cover, TWO! Toni keeps on Jinny going after the legs and getting a Half Crab! Fans taunt the “Spoiled Princess!” but Jinny endures. Jinny claws towards ropes but Toni switches to a figure four STF! Jinny still claws her way forward and she gets the ropebreak. Toni lets go but with a little stomp at the legs. Jinny gets in the corner and Toni runs in but Jinny boots her back. Jinny runs but Toni flips her. Toni underhooks but Jinny escapes to dragon screw Toni down! Jinny rolls Toni over for her seated surfboard!
Toni endures now as Jinny pulls back. Fans rally up and Toni pries a hand free. Toni crawls for the ropes but Jinny pulls back on the other arm. Toni gets that arm free so Jinny lets go to drag her away. Jinny pulls Toni into a camel clutch and leans back! Toni endures but fans rally up, and Toni powers through to rolls Jinny into her own surfboard! Toni pulls Jinny back as hard as she can and starts rocking. Fans sing for Toni but Jinny pries out. Toni stomps Jinny but Jinny claws forward again. Jinny gets the ropebreak and Toni lets her go. Fans cheer as Toni backs off and Jinny gets to a corner. Toni goes in but Jinny bumps her into buckles. Jinny throws Toni to then huricanrana her to a corner!
Jinny runs in but Toni dodges. Toni runs back in, but into a buckle shot! Jinny drags Toni to a corner, TWO! Jinny grows frustrated so she ax kicks Toni down again and again. She drags Toni up and whips her for a forearm to the back. Jinny does it again to the other side, then again to a third side. Toni elbows back but walks into a backbreaker! Cover, TWO! Toni survives but Jinny keeps on her with more ax kicks! Cover, TWO! Fans rally for “Toni, Toni, Toni! OI OI OI!” but Jinny pulls Toni back in a half camel clutch. Toni powers up and out to throw body shots. Toni spins and whips Jinny to a corner, but Jinny Japanese arm-drags her into buckles! Cover, TWO!
Jinny drags Toni up to stomp her back down, then wraps her up in a chinlock. Toni endures being thrashed around and fans rally up. Toni fights up but Jinny wrangles her back down. Jinny grinds but Toni reaches, only to get dragged into body scissors. Toni reaches and flails but Jinny holds on tight. Fans rally again and Toni gets out of the body scissors. Jinny spins her around to SLAP her! Jinny stands Toni for more slaps, but Toni catches her into a German Suplex! Toni holds onto the waistlock for a second German! Toni holds on still, but Jinny blocks the third! They roll through, Toni gets the third German after all!

Jinny rams her shoulder in then puts Toni’s legs on the ropes. Draping facebuster! Cover, ROPEBREAK! Toni’s foot touches the rope even as she’s upside-down! Jinny is furious and says Toni Time is over. Jinny underhooks Toni, but Jinny slips out for a HEADBUTT! Cover, TWO!! Jinny survives but both she and Toni are reeling. Fans rally again as both women head for each other. Toni forearms and Jinny responds, and now it’s a brawl. They go back and forth as fans sing for Toni, and Toni CHOPS Jinny. Jinny swings but Toni dodges. Jinny blocks the kick to throw her down for a knee!
Toni gets to a corner and goes up and over. Toni gets Jinny but Jinny standing switches only to get an elbow. Jinny headscissors but Toni blocks with strength! Toni powerbombs Jinny, then rolls her around for underhooks, Storm Zero!! Cover, Toni wins!
Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall; still NXT UK Women’s Champion
The Storm weathers the Fierce Fashionista to stay on top! Toni denies Jinny her throne, but who will be next to challenge Toni for hers?
A great episode for NXT UK to continue after TakeOver: New York! Of course, most of TakeOver had nothing to do with NXT UK’s current stories, so we actually got some meaningful things this episode. Banks VS Ohno was great, and it was a great choice for Banks to win with a quick roll-up rather than a finish. This feud will continue, and Ohno might win the rematch so that the tiebreaker blow-off goes to Banks. I’m surprised to see Jack Starz back, I thought he got cut. But at the same time, every brand needs a jobber, and he did well in his match with Conners. Conners wins to rebound from losing to Ligero, but it is still unclear what the endgame is for Conners’ story. And knowing that Walter is new champion, Devlin still wants at him, and their match is going to be great no matter what.
There was a lot of vague plugging for the Wrestlemania Axxess Worlds Collide specials coming over the next few weeks. Moustache Mountain VS Andrews & Webster will be great, and whatever match Grizzled Young Veterans ends up having will be great, because NXT, both USA and UK, have great tag divisions. Piper Niven had a solid debut match with Killer Kelly, and of course she won. I liked that Piper was ready for Rhea’s sudden appearance. Their match is going to be great, and could help propel Piper to title contention quickly. Toni VS Jinny in the title match was great, as it always would be given their lengthy history. Toni wins because this wasn’t the moment for a title change. That likely happens, if at all, at the next UK exclusive TakeOver. But chances are, Toni still retains even then, she’s so over and so deserving of a long reign.
My Score: 8.4/10
NOAH WEEKLY NEWSLETTER VOL.124 ~ 28TH FEBRUARY 2021
Leading into March we learn of two fun produce shows and the lead in for Keiji Mutoh’s first GHC Heavyweight title defense! Read along with Hisame’s Emerald education!
Leading into March we learn of two fun produce shows and the lead in for Keiji Mutoh’s first GHC Heavyweight title defense! Read along with Hisame’s Emerald education!
On the 26th February CyberFight held a surprise press conference, which was broadcast on both the NOAH and the DDT YouTube channels. The purpose oft the conference was to announce that on the 6th June 2021, they would be holding an event they hope will become an annual one each year, at the Saitama Super Arena, which is one of the largest in Japan. The event will feature all the promotions that CyberFight manage (NOAH, DDT, Tokyo Joshi Pro & Ganbare ☆ Pro Wrestling), and will have the major titles defended, plus inter-promotional matches. CyberFight president, Sanshiro Takagi, said that it would be up to individual promotions as to whether they wanted to bring in anyone from outside from another promotion.
The one person who wasn’t excited, or even remotely happy by this news, was naturally and unsurprisingly, Kenoh. Rather than start angrily growling on social media, Kenoh’s reaction to the news when announced on NOAH’s official Twitter was, “….”. Naomichi Marufuji tried to explain to Kenoh that all this was was a festival of wrestling, not a merger or anything else. Kenoh made no response, and has only resurfaced on social media to say grumpily he was at a RISE SHOW.
Katsuhiko Nakajima, however, has taken a different approach by saying, “What is this?”. It should be noted that this was said in the manner of a shark finding wounded prey.
Kendo Kashin was up to his usual tricks, by first of all attacking Kenoh after his match in Sendai on the 21st, by storming the ring dressed as a pirate wearing a Jason hockey mask over a Lion mask, and claiming he was Takashi Sugiura, and then intruding into the ring in Gunma after Kenoh’s match, dressed all in white and with a Lucha style mask. He was beaten down by Kongoh (not Katsuhiko Nakajima, who had walked off and didn’t look back), before Masa Kitamiya threw him out of the ring. Backstage, the mysterious masked man, claimed he was Kazushi Sakuraba and had been sent to do this by Takashi Sugiura. No one was fooled, least of all Kenoh, and Takashi Sugiura said he was weary.
Although Kenoh entered looking around him at Korakuen Hall, he need not have worried, the only strange masked man in the match was Kendo Kashin, who nonetheless tried to blindside him. Kashin was up to usual tricks in the match, kicking Kenoh in the groin, and winding him so badly that they ended up fighting in the lift. Kenoh kept the doors open just long enough for the assembled journalists to take pictures.
Junta Miyawaki’s return, challenges for GHC Junior Tag Titles
Following the six man tag (STINGER vs Momo No Seishun and Kinya Okada) on the 24th February at Korakuen Hall, and after the usual fight between the assembled Juniors, it took Junta Miyawaki to get in the ring and separate his warring seniors, after which when another fight broke out, he took out all of STINGER by repeated dropkicks. There was a quick consultation in the ring between all three of Momo No Seishun, which ended with Daisuke Harada challenging STINGER for the tag belts on behalf of himself and Junta Miyawaki. Title match has been set for 21st March at Korakuen Hall, but Miyawaki will make his return to the ring on Saturday March 6th at the FULL THROTTLE produce.
Backstage, naturally STINGER made no comment, Miyawaki had plenty to say, and in a loud voice, yelling he would be the “center of the NOAH juniors” and that “I WANT TO GET A BELT”
Kaito Kiyomiya vs Keiji Mutoh, the first pre match
The first pre-match between Kaito Kiyomiya and Keiji Mutoh ended in frustration for them both, with Mutoh getting the win over Daiki Inaba. Mutoh after the match compared Kiyomiya again to a “low risk” Mahjong move, and said he wanted him to grow faster. Kaito Kiyomiya has made no comment, but he has been seen undertaking MMA training with Kazushi Sakuraba.

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by pinfall (advances to the US Bracket Finals)
In a blink of an eye, this battle of former champions is over! But Thunder Rosa doesn’t have much time to rest, she’s up against the Native Beast on Monday’s last-minute special! Who makes it through to face Ryo Mizunami on Dynamite?
A very good, very fast hour and change for what ended up not being a B/R Live special. B/R Live went down, this ended up on YouTube where it should’ve been anyway, and here we are. The 3v3 was a pretty fun match, a lot of energy and chaos. I’m a little surprised they didn’t play up Mei being Emi’s current protégé, but I did appreciate that they played to the history between Shida and Emi, and likewise Mei being Shida’s “kouhai,” or “junior.” Everyone got to shine, Maki is again a very great character, but naturally Shida wins for her team. Shida needs momentum going into Revolution or else it’ll all be with her challenger.
The Japanese Bracket Final was a great match, though I’m a touch surprised that Ryo won. I suppose it makes some sense, she is a very strong opponent both physically and overall. She’s got a great character, and is a strong contender, but something tells me it’ll be the American finalist that goes to Revolution. Rosa VS Riho was great stuff, fast paced and Riho was not as clunky as last week. But in the end, Rosa wins, a little surprising to me as I thought we’d get a rematch of Riho VS Nyla Rose from over a year ago. Rosa’s story of the goals she’s after is still in play, but Rosa VS Nyla could go either way. Rosa or Nyla facing Shida at Revolution seem the more likely to me, and Nyla VS Shida in a rematch from Double or Nothing 2020 seems even likelier.
