Chris King’s Takeaways For NXT UK 1/30/20

The amazing duo of Flash Morgan Webster and Mark Andrews are in search of a tag team partner for tonight’s colossal main event against Imperium. What will the most dangerous faction in all of WWE have to say after their battle with The Undisputed Era at Worlds Collide? 

The amazing duo of Flash Morgan Webster and Mark Andrews are in search of a tag team partner for tonight’s colossal main event against Imperium. What will the most dangerous faction in all of WWE have to say after their battle with The Undisputed Era at Worlds Collide?

Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch vs. Wild Boar & Primate

The Hunt did a tremendous job keeping Burch away from Lorcan. Wild Boar looked very vicious as they unleashed punishment to the back of Burch. Lorcan is always exciting to watch as he brings his explosive offense. The animals were given a great amount of time to showcase their destructive annihilation, but Burch and Lorcan executed a double-team DDT for the victory.

Eddie Dennis makes his return after his sneaky victory over Moustache Mountain’s Trent Seven. Before Dennis could continue gloating, Seven came down to refresh our memory of the exposed turnbuckle that gave him the loss. He then challenged his rival to a steel turnbuckle street fight!

Aoife Valkyrie is coming in two weeks and she looks like a badass cross between Xena Warrior Princess and Paige.

Nina Samuels vs. Isla Dawn

Dawn and Samuels are no strangers to each other, as both superstars have had several great encounters in the past. Samuels plays the perfect egocentric glamour model that thinks she’s better than anyone. Dawn brought the fight to her rival with her high-octane offense.

Samuels punished her in the corner with nasty-looking knees to the neck. Dawn waited for her opening, as her opponent landed knee first into the turnbuckle and allowed her to hit a Half & Half Suplex with a bridge pin for the victory.

Ridge Holland vs. Tyson T-Bone

This was as good ole Jim Ross would say, a slobber-knocker. Holland and T-Bone had a full-on slugfest with both men battling for dominance. I can see Holland challenging Walter for the United Kingdom Championship by the end of the year or sooner. He’s that good! Northern Grit earned him another hard-fought victory.

Two HUGE matches are made official for next week: A-Kid will go one-on-one with Tyler Bate and Trent Seven will get his rematch against Eddie Dennis in a colossal Steel Corners Street Fight!

Main Event: Flash Morgan Webster & Mark Andrews & Dave Mastiff vs. Imperium Six-man Tag Team Match

The beginning of the match was all Imperium as Barthel, Aichner, and Wolfe kept the babyfaces grounded away from The Bomber. Mastiff came in and cleaned house which allowed Webster and Andrews to deliver some spectacular dropkicks, splashes, and a jaw-dropping headscissor takedown.

Webster is a freaking highlight reel and was on fire until Wolfe got the tag. He delivered one of the most brutal German suplexes I’ve ever seen. Imperium regained control of the situation and completely obliterated their opponents. Mastiff is a wrecking ball of destruction as he delivered a thunderous cannonball to Imperium. Walter appeared and allowed a well-timed distraction and got blasted by Mastiff.

Back in the ring, Barthel launched Andrews into the arms of Aichner for a nasty-looking brainbuster for the decisive victory. As the show closed, Mastiff and Walter shared an intense stare down. I am all for The Bomber becoming the new number-one contender for the UK Title. He and Walter would have a Clash of Titans type match!
