Chris King has your NXT UK Takeaways! Headed into Worlds Collide, what did the overseas branch of NXT have to offer?

Chris King has your NXT UK Takeaways! Headed into Worlds Collide, what did the overseas branch of NXT have to offer?

On Saturday night at Worlds Collide, the quartet Imperium battles The Undisputed Era in a huge dream match! Will the chaos continue as two factions seek to establish dominance? Last and certainly not least, we have two qualifying matches Ligero vs. Jordan Devlin & Travis Banks vs. The Brian Kendrick who will advance to the Fatal-four-way Cruiserweight Championship match?

Ligero vs. Jordan Devlin
Worlds Collide Cruiserweight Qualifying Match

This match started off red-hot with both competitors putting it all on the line for a shot at the Cruiserweight Championship. It quickly turned into what “The Irish Ace” wanted, a ground and pound beatdown. I love Devlin so much, I love his ruthless and vindictive mannerisms and his character.

Ligero tried his best to withstand the punishment but in the end, a middle-rope stunner and Devil Inside earned Devlin the victory. The Irish Ace made a huge statement after his loss to Tyler Bate at Blackpool II.

Josh Marrell vs. Iija Dragunov

This was your typical squash match to showcase what Dragunov will be bringing to his battle against Finn Balor at Worlds Collide. Marell got a small window to show off his high-flying abilities before he got dismantled.

After the match, Dragunov was addressing Balor until Gallus appeared. Apparently, Joe Coffey blames him for not walking out of Blackpool with the United Kingdom Championship. He claims that after Dragunov gets done with The Prinxe he will have to answer to Coffey.

Travis Banks vs. The Brian Kendrick
Worlds Collide Cruiserweight Qualifying Match

Banks started off the match outsmarting the self-proclaimed best professional wrestler cutting him off at every turn. The tables turned when Kendrick methodically attacked Bank’s hand. The wily veteran trapped it in the steel steps and it looked nasty.

Banks persevered with one good hand blasting his opponent and wiped him to the outside with a suicide dive. “The Kiwi Buzzsaw” went to the well one too many times and got caught in a nasty-looking suplex on the floor and ramp. In the end, though, a Slice of Heaven and a Kiwi Crusher earned Banks a hard-fought victory.

The Fatal-four-way Cruiserweight Championship match is set with Angel Garza defending against Isaiah “Swerve” Scott, Jordan Devlin, and Travis Banks!
