NXT UK Coverage

Factions fight for absolute power in NXT UK!

British Strong Style collides with Imperium! Will Pete Dunne or Walter lead their side to victory? Plus, witness the NXT UK in-ring debut of the Alpha Female, Jazzy Gabert!



  • Jazzy Gabert & Jinny VS Xia Brookside & Isla Dawn; Gabert & Jinny win.
  • Ilja Dragunov VS Joseph Conners; Dragunov wins.
  • Six Man Tag: British Strong Style VS Imperium; Imperium wins.


The landscape of NXT UK is in flux!

“This is OUR N X T U K!” But slowly, the Bruiserweight and Moustache Mountain were undermined by a new union. A Ring General found his soldiers, and they took over! Imperium claims supremacy, but British Strong Style reunites to defend their territory. A brawl was not enough to settle this, so now a war must be waged! Will Big Strong Boys or big strong men be the ones who stand tall at the end of tonight?


Jazzy Gabert & Jinny VS Xia Brookside & Isla Dawn!

When the Fierce Fashionista saw the Alpha Female in the NXT UK crowd at TakeOver: Blackpool, she knew then and there she could get a powerful ally in the Women’s Division. And their first action was for Jazzy to destroy the young second-generation superstar. But the White Witch of Scotland is ready to #FlyWithBrookside to show the snob and the bully this is not their NXT UK Women’s Division! Will Xia and Isla be able to cast a spell on Jinny & Jazzy? Or will they simply be cast aside on Jinny’s journey to the top?

The teams sort out and Jinny starts with Isla. Glasgow cheers their own as she ties up with Jinny. Jinny gets a wristlock and shifts to a hammerlock, but Isla slips out to a fireman’s takedown. Isla has the arm and wrenches Jinny to a hammerlock of her own. Isla wrangles Jinny to the mat and pulls on the other arm. Fans cheer as Isla tortures the arm with twisting and pulling. Isla yanks the arm and Jinny flails and writhes. Isla has her again and brings Jinny over to tag in Xia. Xia hops up and drops ax handles on Jinny’s arm. Xia wrenches and reels Jinny in for a thrashing headlock! Jinny slips out to wrench Xia but Xia spins through using the ropes. Xia wrenches and whips Jinny to ropes. Xia follows to dropkick Jinny down!

But before Xia can get back on her, Jinny gets to her corner and tags in Jazzy. Jazzy grimaces at Xia, but Xia still goes for a leg. Jazzy blocks the takedown into a vicious standing armbar! She wrenches Xia but Xia again flips through. Xia knees low then hops up, but the huricanrana is blocked! Jazzy pops Xia up but Xia sunset flips, only for Jazzy to block! Jazzy yanks Xia up and roars as she tosses Xia into a corner! And then across the ring! Jazzy looms over Xia before bringing her back up. Fans rally but Jinny tags in. Jazzy holds Xia for Jinny to kick and stomp into the corner. The ref counts and Jinny backs off at 4, to come back for more. Jinny grinds Xia down while she tags Jazzy in.

Jazzy drags Xia up and scoops her. But Xia slips out and ducks, to tag in Isla! Isla throws forearms on Jazzy, but Jazzy shoves her away. Isla comes back with a knee trigger! Fans cheer but Jazzy blocks the buzzsaw! Jazzy grabs Isla for a knee, and then a roaring powerbomb lift. Canadian rack to Dominator Slam! Jinny demands to tag in, and Jazzy obeys. Jinny gets to cover Isla, for the win!

Winners: Jinny & Jazzy Gabert, Jinny pinning

The Spoiled Princess gets the pinfall, but we all know Jazzy did the heavy lifting, literally. With this combination of brains, brawn and bratty, will Jinny and Jazzy take over NXT UK together?


NXT UK hears from Ligero.

“When I was born, I was born with my right eye closed. And it wasn’t until I was 8 years old, when I had an operation to correct that.” Kids made fun of him, and that stuck with him. He felt shy and insecure, but he always wanted to be a pro-wrestler. So he found something to help him be more confident: the mask. From there, the Luchador of Leeds became a workhorse. He embraced his mask and the action. It is what makes him memorable to the fans. They will remember the guy with the mask and horns. “This will be the identity that I always have. I am Ligero.” When and where will The Light return to NXT UK?


NXT UK Media interviews Kenny Williams.

As someone who knows Noam Dar well, what does the Lucky Yan think of the Scottish Supernova’s recent behavior, such as in his rematch with Mark Andrews not too long ago? Kenny feels sorry for Andrews, but isn’t surprised by Dar. They’re close mates but Dar has also been a “chancer,” that is to say, an opportunist. There’s always that one friend who is “a bit of a pellet,” but you still like him. That’s Dar! At the end of the day, what Dar does is not affecting Kenny’s conduct. Especially when Kenny takes on Kassius Ohno next week. Kenny doesn’t have to be a chancer, he just has to #StayLucky. But will luck help Kenny defeat the Wrestling Genius?


Ilja Dragunov VS Joseph Conners!

The Moscow Madman is the newest member of the NXT UK roster, which just makes him another “shiny new toy” for the Righteous Killer to break. But will it really be that easy? Or will #UNBESIEGBAR be what breaks Conners instead?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans cheer for Ilja as he and Conners tie up. They go around the ring, then break. Ilja smirks, and nods as Conners talks trash. Then Ilja rushes Conners into the corner! The ref keeps Ilja back and Conners knees low. Conners clubs Ilja, but Ilja dares him to bring more. Conners tries to chop but Ilja blocks, spins and CHOPS Conners! Ilja drops a BIG senton! Fans fire up with Ilja as he stalks Conners. Ilja clamps on with a neck wrench, and Conners endures the crank. Conners fights his way up but Ilja knees him hard. Ilja clubs even harder on Conners’ back. Conners gets out and eggs Ilja on. Ilja gives chase but Conners gets back in the ring. Ilja runs in and escapes the scoop to enziguri Conners down!

Fans cheer the athleticism, and fire up with Ilja as he runs. But Conners ducks and lets Ilja’s crossbody hit nothing but ropes! Ilja gasps for air but Conners is right on him. Conners puts him in a corner for a buckle bump, then corner to corner for another. Conners throws hands and stomps until the ref pulls him off. But Conners just comes back with a BIG clothesline! Cover, ONE! Fans cheer but Conners whips Ilja into a headbutt. Conners wraps Ilja up in a half straitjacket. Fans rally up and Ilja pries free, but not for long. Ilja keeps working on escaping, and fans give him the power to stand. Ilja powers out, slipping under the hold! Conners panics but Ilja gives him a big forearm. Conners gives a forearm, but Ilja just powers up!

Ilja swings, but Conners ducks, only for Ilja to spin through the takedown to give Conners a big knee! Fans fire up again as Ilja runs corner to corner for a big corner clothesline! Ilja keeps going, but runs into a boot! Conners runs out, and sunset flip powerbombs Ilja into buckles! Conners slingshots out then in, but into Ilja’s fireman’s carry! Ilja Death Valley drives Conners into buckles! Ilja fires up more, and Glasgow with him, as he drags Conners up. Pump handle, Fall Away Slam! Ilja takse aim from the corner and leads the fans in “UN! BE! SIEG! BAR!” The Moscow Torpedo! Cover, Ilja wins!

Winner: Ilja Dragunov, by pinfall

The Moscow Madman makes another dominant showing! Will he take over NXT UK on the road to TakeOver: Cardiff?


NXT UK Media interviews NXT UK Women’s Champion, Toni Storm.

The Lightning from Down Under retained against Nina Samuels to stay champion, but what is next for her? Toni knows that every woman on the roster wants the “shiny shiny.” And that’s a lot of pressure, but Toni loves it! Toni loves the wild side. She heard what Kay Lee Ray has said. If KLR wants some #ToniTime, she knows where to find her. But regardless of who, what, when and how, the “shiny shiny” stays home sweet home with Toni. Toni is all smiles, but there is a HUGE NXT UK Women’s Championship Contender’s Battle Royal next week! Who out of the entire roster rises up to have their shot at the “shiny shiny” around Toni’s waist?


NXT UK presents Travis Banks: Defined.

The difference between the Kiwi Buzzsaw and who Banks is out of the ring is rather striking. Banks is a very laid back person, because he has a very high work ethic. The new #1 Contender to the WWE United Kingdom Championship lets himself relax and soak in what he’s earned and achieved. He came in with high expectations, because he’s a very goal oriented person. His experience at Royal Albert Hall was incredible. Don’t quote him on this, but he might have been the first Kiwi wrestler there in 50 years. It was all historic for Banks and pro-wrestling in general.

Banks did have a hard loss in the finals, and he had serious injuries to overcome. The shoulder injury took him out for three months. He hates being inactive, so being told he had to avoid serious activity for those three months, it almost drove him crazy. But it was a good thing, because it put things in perspective. When Banks returned to NXT UK, he added a new chapter with his rivalry with Jordan Devlin. Being denied a part in NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool, it was frustrating. He thought his years of work were all going to culminate in that one night. But Banks also knew that if and when he got a second chance, he’d take it. And that led Banks to the Fatal 4 Way match.

“This is the moment I’ve been working towards.” This is the day he was waiting for to make his underdog story work out. Banks says it will take more than one chop, one bomb or whatever else Walter throws at him. Banks’ sacrifice and work was for this. And as great as being champion would be, it’ll be even greater off of Walter. Will the Kiwi Buzzsaw be ready when he finally collides with the Austrian Anomaly?


NXT UK catches up with The Hunt at the UK Performance Center.

Wild Boar and Primate come out of the trainer’s room, and tell Gallus that next week, #TheHuntisOn! Will Mark Coffey and Wolfgang regret riling up these two wild animals?


Six Man Tag: British Strong Style VS Imperium!

Tyler Bate and Trent Seven are Moustache Mountain, but when you add the Bruiserweight, Pete Dunne, you get the pillars of this NXT UK Division! They’ve been champions and they’ve been challengers, but now they’re being challenged for supremacy by the Ring General and his allies! Which trio stands tall atop their NXT UK?

Winners: Imperium, Marcel Barthel pinning

Imperium is victorious, but is it also now four man strong? Wolfe lost his SAnitY, but has he gained absolute power alongside Walter, Barthel and Aichner? Judging by how he stands side-by-side with them, he has! What does this mean for all of NXT UK?!



My Thoughts:

What a great episode for NXT UK! There’s a lot of time still before TakeOver: Cardiff, but this episode had plenty of stuff to make progress towards that. We just right to action with the women’s tag match. Obviously Jinny & Jazzy were going to win, but it should’ve been obvious that Jinny would want to take credit. This dynamic will probably be how it is until someone catches Jinny by surprise to beat them. For that matter, with that Women’s Battle Royal next week, it will surely go that way, too. Jinny will have Jazzy do the work and protect her, but something will happen where Jazzy gets eliminated and Jinny is completely vulnerable. Given the frequent mentioning of Kay Lee Ray and the title, KLR is winning the battle royal to challenge Toni, but it might be a match to carry over and then it’s Jazzy at TakeOver.

We got a great video package for Ligero, he is obviously still going to be big for NXT UK. It seems like NXT UK is trying to set up Kenny Williams VS Noam Dar with that promo there, which would be a good feud for both guys. Dragunov VS Conners was good but of course Dragunov won. He got to give us more of his personality and style, but I feel like Dragunov’s first serious feud should be with Kassius Ohno or someone of that toughness, so that Dragunov can really give us his full arsenal. We also got a great video for Travis Banks that felt like a sample of a future WWE Network special. But I still feel like Banks might be on the same track as KLR, where this match will be a hold-over until another contender moves up for TakeOver.

The Six Man Tag was incredible! All the story was present, and all six men got to show their signatures, it was really good. I was definitely surprised to see Imperium get a new member already, but it’s great to see there is still somewhere for Alexander Wolfe to be when Vince goes and breaks up SAnitY before even really giving them a chance. Imperium being the first four-man unit in NXT UK, I really want there to be a midcard title already. Barthel and Aichner are the tag team, Walter is already the top champion, so Wolfe needs something to do if he’s in another faction. I do feel that Banks will team with British Strong Style for a massive Eight Man before his title match with Walter, and that will be even greater than this!

My Score: 8.4/10

Winner: Hiromu Takahashi, by pinfall (still IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion)

The Timebomb went off, and there is still time on his reign! Will he have to keep fighting this hard to continue proving he’s the Best of the Super Juniors?

Wait, Zack Sabre Jr. comes out to the ring? What business does the Front Man have out here? ZSJ gets the mic to say, “Alright, alright, calm down. Hiromu-chan, tranquilo please. I’m not a Junior Heavyweight.” But ZSJ does know who is. Hiromu, your next challenger is the newest member of TMDK! He’s got a little video message for you, so please watch. The video rolls, and someone is making a lot of people tap out. Joining The Mighty is… ROBBIE EAGLES! “Surprise!” Eagles is making his return at Ryogoku, for Sakura Genesis! “The IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion will surrender to the Sniper, because Robbie Eagles is Mighty, and The Mighty Don’t Kneel.”

Everyone is going nuts learning of Robbie’s defection from Chaos to TMDK, and ZSJ wishes Hiromu luck. “Matane, dickhead.” ZSJ leaves, and now Hiromu gets the mic to respond. He starts by saying Zack scared him, he really thought Zack was challenging for a second. And to think it was Robbie. Why’d Robbie join TMDK? And challenging Hiromu for Ryogoku? It’s March 21st, that only gives them a couple weeks. There have been an awful lot of video messages making challenges these days. Is it about who can upload a video to the editors faster? That doesn’t seem fair. But naturally, CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!!

And Hiromu is ready to go to Sakura Genesis to have fun with Robbie! Then they’ll have more, more, more, more, more, moreMORE fun. The Timebomb is ready for the Sniper of the Skies’ Mighty return, will Hiromu continue to be the Best of the Super Juniors?


New Japan Cup 2023 Finals: SANADA w/ Just5Guys VS David Finlay w/ Gedo!

Two men who are very different yet very similar meet in the final match of this tournament. The Cold Skull is no longer tranquilo, he’s “one of the guys.” And the Rebel sharpened his edge to take out the Switchblade, and now he’s just Too Sweet. These two have grown, but who will prove they’ve grown stronger when they take the Cup?

The introductions are made, the cup is presented, and only one man can take the golden ticket that comes with it!

The bell rings, fans are thunderous already, and they rally behind “SA-NA-DA!” Finlay shrugs that off as he feel things out with Sanada. They tie up, are in a deadlock, but Sanada powers Finlay back to the ropes. Red Shoes calls the break, Finlay mocks Sanada as a “strong boy,” but he and Sanada slowly let off. Fans applaud the sportsmanship, and the two reset. The two tie up again, and now Finlay powers Sanada back. But then Sanada powers Finlay back!

And another! Finlay UPPERCUTS Sanada right down! “That’s how it’s done!” Finlay rains down fists on Sanada again and again! Red Shoes reprimands and Finlay “apologizes,” before he drops a leg! Cover, but Red Shoes says that’s not enough of a press.

Finlay is annoyed, but he snap suplexes Sanada and lateral presses, TWO! Fans fire up for Sanada but Finlay is annoyed. Finlay SLAMS Sanada’s bad arm on the mat, then he clamps on a chinlock. Sanada endures the knee in his back, but Finlay then shifts to a cobra clutch! Gedo says to ask Sanada but Sanada endures. Sanada fights up but Finlay cranks on the hold more. Finlay grinds Sanada back on and then thrashes him around. Sanada fights back up again, throws body shots, but Finlay knees low! Finlay whips, Sanada reverses and dropkicks the legs out! Finlay swings, but into a BIG back suplex! Fans fire up while both men are down!

Sanada sits up first and fans rally behind him. Sanada drags Finlay up, but Finlay ROCKS him and whips him. Sanada reverses, then hurdles, hurdles and DROPKICKS! Fans are thunderous as Finlay bails out again. Sanada takes aim, to PLANCHA! Direct hit and down goes Finlay! Sanada encourages the fans to get louder and the fans oblige! Sanada goes back to Finlay, drags him up and into the ring, and then covers, ONE!! Finlay hangs tough but fans continue to rally behind Sanada. Sanada goes to fireman’s carry but Finlay CLUBS away! Sanada knees low, whips, but Finlay reverses to TACKLE Sanada out of the ring!

Finlay RAMS Sanada into railing! And then RAMS him in again! Taichi is only annoyed on commentary as Finlay lets off. Red Shoes tells Finlay to bring this back into the ring, so Finlay APRON BACK SUPLEXES Sanada! Finlay pushes Sanada in to cover, TWO! Sanada hangs tough but Finlay says fine. He sits Sanada up to CROSSFACE FOREARM! Gedo wants more so Finlay gives Sanada another CROSSFACE FOREARM! And then another! And another! And another!

Winner: Sanada, by pinfall (2023 New Japan Cup Winner)

Just 5 Guys get in the ring to celebrate with Sanada! His shoutouts to the Stardust Genius and the Wrestling Genius help him take the cup! But then, what happens to Finlay? Does the world NOT need the Rebel after all?

As for the Cold Skull, he is presented the cup by NJPW President Obari, and they pose for the photo ops. Then Sanada gets the mic to say, “I won the New Japan Cup for my first time, here in my hometown. However, I’m not satisfied. Next is the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship. Okada-san, are you still here or have you left? If you are still here, I want you out here.” Fans cheer for that, and chant for “O-KA-DA!” Just5Guys wait, and here comes the Rainmaker! Okada brings the world title to the ring, and he stares Sanada down. Sanada tells Okada that the world title belt will be Sanada’s as he changes the landscape here.

As such, Sanada tells Okada, “Thanks for all your work.” Okada takes the mic to say, “Sanada-san, congratulations on winning the New Japan Cup. And, thank you for all your work. My rival, I’ve been waiting for this. But what took you so long, huh!? What is this talk of a new landscape? Just because you changed your hair and your allegiance, you think that means you can beat me? On April 8th, I will show the difference between the IWGP World Heavyweight Champion and New Japan Cup winner! I will beat the living daylights outta you in Ryogoku!” Okada has said his piece, and he raises the belt as he exits the ring.

Sanada tells Okada, “Nobody understands what you just said more than I do. But seeing as I won the main event, please get out of here.” Okada says okay and fans applaud as Okada walks up the ramp. Sanada continues to say, “Just5Guys will take the top spot in NJPW, and I will be the NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion the next time you see me. So for now, are you ready for the gift?” The spotlight shines on Sanada, Taichi even gets his phone out to be one of the “stars” in the night sky. Sanada says that he must confess, out of everywhere in Japan, he loves Nagaoka the most. “OI, NAGAOKA! See you next time!”

The Cold Skull is red hot after joining Just5Guys, changing his look, and winning the New Japan Cup! The streamers fly, will Sanada truly change everything in NJPW?

My Thoughts:

A great finish to the New Japan Cup, as well as the additional matches included on the night. Great Six Man Tag of Chaos VS United Empire, big win for the Empire with Aussie Open pinning one of the tag team champions. Aussie Open VS Bishamon is going to be an awesome match, it could really go either way, but it feels like if they’re gonna do it, they might as well do it now so Aussie Open can use the Summer for their reign before the G1 Climax comes in.

And that IWGP Junior Heavyweight title match was quite the show-stealer. Lio and Hiromu went all out, the fans loved it all, and as great as Lio is, Hiromu winning makes sense. Hiromu has NJPW’s backing since they also helped him down that All-Star Junior Fest event, so Hiromu is of course leading the way for the division. And it seems the theme of 2023 in NJPW is change. Robbie Eagles is leaving Chaos to join TMDK, though I honestly thought it was gonna be United Empire because of Will Ospreay, but TMDK is filling out its division bingo card, so Robbie is the Junior Heavyweight singles guy now. Probably won’t beat Hiromu, though.

And that New Japan Cup finals match itself was awesome stuff. It is as I figured the other day: Finlay lost here because his real story is with the Bullet Club, and his story is about whether or not he can truly be leader after taking out Jay White. Sanada and Okada get to revive their rivalry, Sakura Genesis is going to be huge. And it would be even bigger if Sanada actually won. Okada’s only had the world title since WrestleKingdom, four months feels short for such a title reign, but maybe Gedo will want to shake things up outside of just shuffling faction members around.

My Score: 8.9/10

AEW Coverage

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (3/21/23)

Toni Storm gets Dark!



AEW Dark is on #ToniTime!

The Outcasts have drawn a line in the AEW Women’s Division, and are daring everyone else to cross it! Will Toni Storm strike down another “entitled rookie?”


  • The Iron Savages VS The Wingmen; win.
  • Juice Robinson VS Leon Ruffin; wins.
  • Kiera Hogan VS Leila Grey; wins.
  • The Renegades VS Avery Breaux & Mafiosa; wins.
  • Toni Storm VS Billie Starkz; wins.


Another surprisingly short line-up for Dark, with a couple matches that could go either way. The Iron Savages, formerly Bear Country, and the Wingmen will be a good one, but I’m leaning towards Bronson & Boulder winning that. Kiera Hogan VS Leila Grey, former Baddie taking on Jade’s last sidekick standing, could also go either way, but I’m leaning towards Kiera. But it’ll be good to see Robyn & Charlette Renegade get a win here to build that unofficial Women’s Tag Division AEW has.
