NXT UK hears from Eddie Dennis.
“Stephen Hawking once said that intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.” Dennis is our teacher, and NXT UK has “clearly changed.” As an intelligent man, Dennis was adapting. His talk with Pretty Deadly is a sample of his machine-like mind always processing. “But like a hadron collider, you just can’t understand it.” What schemes is Professor Dennis plotting for NXT UK?
NXT looks back to March.
Mark Andrews was hurting from a blindside attack, and we still don’t know who! The Hunt, Trent Seven and a few others were in the area, but are they in the suspect pool?
NXT UK Media talks to South Wales Subculture.
Flash Morgan Webster is in the Heritage Cup tournament, how does he feel about that honor? “I’m absolutely buzzing.” They were just talking about these exciting few weeks, the Modfather is ready to show A-Kid what European Wrestling is all about. Andrews says Flash has got this. 2020 has sucked, but the way to get back on top is this tournament.

Will the Spoiled Princess ascend to the throne that the Scary Queen of Scots holds?
NXT UK profiles A-Kid.
El Nina Anonymo promises the world will see what European Wrestling is all about. It’s a dream come true, really. He wants to inspire people with his style and his roots. He is WWE’s first Spanish born wrestler, and has been training for a moment like this his whole life. He has the responsibility of showing what Spanish wrestling is capable of. A-Kid’s life showed him how to wrestle around other styles. He will use strikes, submissions and flying to prove a kid from Spain is as good as anyone in the world.

NXT UK Heritage Cup Tournament Opening Round: Noam Dar VS Alexander Wolfe, special guest referee Pete Dunne!
The Bruiserweight was back last week to help with the tournament bracket drawings, as well as to keep order. He already showed the Scottish Supernova and Dresden Hatchet Man what they’ll get if they step out of line, will he have to straighten anyone out by bending their fingers? Or will Dar and Wolfe stay within the British Round rules and see this through?

The Bruiserweight and UNBESIEGBAR dare Imperium to come back for more! Will Ilja have someone watching his back as he goes after the NXT UK Champion?
A great episode to open the Heritage Cup. The Triple Threat was a great opener, but I did not expect those three to be the three put in. As much as I wanted Tyler Bate in the tournament, I suppose it would’ve been a given he wins the Triple Threat to face Seven. Giving us unpredictability over a story like Seven VS Bate is fine, and I’m sure Williams VS Seven under British Rounds will be just as good. Jinny VS Xia was good, and I suppose Jinny winning was a given since she was lurking around when KLR defended her title. A more ruthless Jinny is hard to imagine but in a feud against KLR, that sounds like a lot of fun.
Flash Morgan Webster VS A-Kid is going to be really good next week, and both had good promo work tonight. I feel like A-Kid wins based on him getting that vignette, and because they reminded us about the mystery of who attacked Mark Andrews. I have a feeling it is The Hunt, so that means SWSC will team together to face them in a tag match. Dar VS Wolfe with Dunne as ref was a great opening match for this tournament, and going deep into the rounds was a good move to show how much can happen in this kind of match. Dar moves on because he’s definitely got a lot of charisma to bring into this tournament, and the story of him bending rules in a way will make for good story overall. Dunne and Dragunov standing against Imperium was good, too. Maybe once Imperium is fully reunited, there is a second try of Imperium VS British Strong Style, with Dragunov helping them like he did Gallus.
My Score: 8.5/10
AJ’s IMPACT Wrestling Results & Review 4/15/21
AJ fills in to cover his first Impact full show in a hot minute! How does he feel about the product? How is everything building towards Rebellion?
Oh… Were you guys expecting to see Andrew’s IMPACT? No no… Much like Matt and Jeff, Matt showed he can work but they just liked Jeff more.
I’m kidding but, yes as Andrew has said in the last IMPACT review, I am taking over IMPACT duties for the foreseeable future. Jazz’s retirement speech along with a lot of other interesting things to come like Omega and Swann with a Press Conference and good amount of matches to come.
What will I think of IMPACT now that they have another “Phenomenal AJ” with them?
— IMPACT (@IMPACTWRESTLING) April 16, 2021
- TJP vs Josh Alexander – Josh Alexander wins via Butterfly Piledriver – *** ¼
- Crazzy Steve (w/ Decay) vs Karl Anderson (w/ Doc Gallows) – Karl Anderson wins via Spinebuster – ** ¾
- Pick Your Poison: Brian Myers vs Jake Something- Myers wins via Roster Cut – **
- Pick Your Poison: Matt Cardona vs Sami Callihan- Sami Callihan wins via Package Piledriver – ** ¾
TJP vs Josh Alexander
Both men showing more of the technical side of them instead of the X Division we are used to seeing throughout the years but the two are using a good amount of speed against each other, picking up in the later part of the match up. They go to different styles rapidly from technical, to agility, strength and striking too around the end.
Every time TJP goes for an Armbreaker or his signature Octopus, Josh scouts it and gets into an Ankle Lock. TJP also has the move caught and transitions into an STS. TJP goes for a Mamba Splash but it keeps getting countered into the Ankle Lock again. TJP yet again reverses it into an Arm Bar and Josh Alexander realizes that he has to win with something else and breaks the Armbreaker with a Powerbomb and hits a Double Underhook Piledriver to finish off TJP this matchup.

A short promo airs for “Let’s Get Wilde”, showing that Taylor Wilde is returning fairly soon to IMPACT Wrestling.
Crazzy Steve vs Karl Anderson
Karl Anderson gets the advantage very early on, sneak attacking and beating down Steve, even during the break. With every single dirty trick, Crazzy Steve can’t seem to get any form of offense until Karl’s hubris gets in his way. Steve actually getting some fast paced offense going until Gallows interferes enough times for the win.
Was a good match, making sure that the Bullet Club reigns supreme on two shows. That and usually a Pair of Aces is a good way to win as well.
— IMPACT (@IMPACTWRESTLING) April 16, 2021
We get to the Swing Plaza and some odds when it comes to the X Division Championship Match at Rebellion. Ace saying he’s the best more a less, TJP actually saying he’s got a good amount of wins against both of them and Josh… getting the math from his friend Little Petey Pump on his three-way chance at Rebellion.
Eddie cuts a promo against Violent By Design with Willie Mack in tow. After Eddie comes with a declaration of war, VBD comes down and tells Eddie that he just wants his beating and says he had nothing to do with beating up Tommy Dreamer at Hardcore Justice. Violent By Design comes to the ropes after Eddie says let’s fight as James Storm and Chris Sabin runs down to even up the odds and challenges them to an Eight Man Tag Team match up for Rebellion.
Before we get Jazz’s Retirement speech, Deanna Purazzo is walking to the ring with Su…san and catches Scott D’More. Scott tells her to not ruin her moment in the ring before cutting to commercial.
Jazz comes out for her retirement speech and says Deanna and Jordynn are the present and future of Women’s Wrestling. After Jazz gives her heart felt speech, Fire n Flava comes out to interrupt and tells them that they don’t care and good riddance until… per Scott D’More and since Jazz never said I’m retired… WE HAVE A TAG TEAM MATCH!
For it being Impromptu, it was still a great feel good moment. Jazz got to go out on top with a Falcon Arrow variant and now official retires after her match. Everyone comes out from the locker room to give their support and love for Jazz.
— IMPACT (@IMPACTWRESTLING) April 16, 2021
After the break, Scott tells Fire n Flava that they have to face Jordynn and Jazz for the Tag Titles at Rebellion. They storm off upset but Jazz and Jordynn show up and Jazz says she appreciates it but, she is a woman of her word and will be retired but… she will get a substitute for Jordynn for the match.
Pick your Poison starts for Cardona and Myers as they pick each other’s opponent tonight. Myers is in the ring first and Cardona picks Jake Something.
Brian Myers vs Jake Something
Jake takes it to Myers really on, out powering and out muscling Myers before Myers powders out and runs away from Jake in order to bait him into a Roster Cut for the win.
After the match, Myers says that it’s hard to see with the eyepatch but it’s harder to see in the dark as Myers picks Sami Callihan to face Matt Cardona.
Matt Cardona vs Sami Callihan
Sami jumps Cardona early on before the bell and once we get started, Cardona hits a Rough Ry… Leg Lariat. He hit’s a leg lariat for the two count. Both men striking hard and beating each other down, in and outside of the ring, mistakes are what changes things from both men where Sami takes too much time and Cardona gets too angry and gets sloppy in his moves. No matter what, neither men can get an advantage until Cardona gets his adrenaline pumping, hitting Radio Silence to Sami but kicks out.
After some counters to take Matt Cardona’s cheap tactics by Sami Callihan to get the upper hand and the win, thumb in the eye of Cardona and into a Package Piledriver.
Aftermath: Sami tells Trey Miguel to come out and talk to him. Trey has a chip on his shoulder and tells Sami that he wants nothing to do with him. Sami tries to tell Trey that he is proud of Trey for taking the opportunity at Hardcore Justice because Sami was the one to take out Tommy Dreamer in the main event and that’s where Trey goes to attack Sami but you do not mess with a dangerous man, especially one that uses a chair to prove a point. Sami dismantles Trey with the chair but Trey keeps standing after the beatdown.
FinJuice has a promo against The Good Brothers saying that they are going to prove that they are the best and better than what the Good Brothers say they are.
The press conference begins and Kenny Omega is…. late it seems as the questions start for Rich Swann, if he can handle the challenge and answers the best way I could think. As they ask the questions about being Champion for both companies and their commitments that will happen and make sure there is a definitive winner, Kenny finally shows up and the questions for them begin. Don gets questioned about his loyalty to IMPACT and his devotion to Kenny Omega and if there will be a backlash for it and Callis gets sick of his only question as he praises Omega again so he can talk. Kenny Omega speaks on how he is used to this type of thing, big match, dress to impress and then starts to insult Rich Swann, saying he’s not on his level and he doesn’t belong on this platform.
He says this is the last time he will be cordial, that the next time he sees Rich is in the ring and goes to shake his hand… but paint brushes him instead as a fight closes out the show.
Now… I do love IMPACT. I really do and enjoyed a lot of the moments in the night, from Cardona and Myers trying to outwit each other, the VBD vs IMPACT Soldiers to get a match at Rebellion all the way to Callihan and Trey’s confrontation. All of this will play out perfectly as the set up for Rebellion’s card on the 25th. Bound to see some great matches and this is my first time giving my opinions and thoughts on IMPACT on this platform and we might even get more as they added Trey vs Sami in a Last Man Standing Match, Jordynn Grace and a Mystery Partner against Fire n Flava along with Violent By Design against the IMPACT faithful.
All of that being said however, am I the only one that really and truly… not giving even a modicum of care about the Title vs Title Match for Rebellion? It’s going to be Kenny. All fingers point to Kenny. They even said there is going to be an All Elite Wrestling Referee there to make sure it’s a definite match. They are making it seem like Rich is just so insignificant on his own show that he is representing as their Undisputed World Champion. I know I usually don’t get on my soap box during reviews but I can say without a shadow of a doubt… I really don’t care about this match and I know I’m going to cover it in two Sundays. Try to impress me. Make me give a damn about this match IMPACT. You have a week.

Sha asks, “How do you think he feels?!” It winds Sha up, gets on his nerves, that Dar works so hard every single day to make sure this brand is at the TOP of the WWE! And Tyler Bate and his “old man,” Trent Seven, just get handed things on a silver platter! Dar has Sha calm down, and says those boys play checkers, but he and Sha play chess. Dar has friends in high places, and he has guaranteed himself and Sha a tag team match with Moustache Mountain! Sha likes that, and Dar says they’ll see those dafties next week. EEEEAST!!
NXT UK presents an all new Supernova Sessions!
“Hello, hello, hello! Hear me now, live from the moon,” Dar welcomes us back to his show. Now they say two is better than one, and usually Dar is a one man team. But as we heard, Dar and Sha will team up to make tag team history as they knock Seven & Bate off the tag team mountain! Now, all the way from Scotland, it’s GALLUS! Wolfgang, Mark & Joe Coffey walk out and they take the couch. Dar tries to say that’s his seat but he can’t get Gallus to go to the chairs. Dar tries to sit on the arm, but Gallus tells him no, there’s chairs over there. Dar sighs as he has to sit in the “guest” section, and then tries to get comfy.
Dar says Gallus is looking fantastic and fresh! Where did they go on holiday? And more importantly, what gift did they bring back for him? Mark tells Dar it wasn’t a holiday. It was time to train and refocus. They worked in the morning, had a drink in the afternoon, and didn’t “break any rules.” Gallus is held to a higher standard than any team here, so they picked themselves up and got going again. Dar likes that. How is Wolfie feeling? Well he’s been away, focusing on controlling his temper, and not let anyone get under his skins. Well said. Is Joe okay, though? That wing alright? Joe’s been kinda quiet. Joe says he’s had time to reflect. The next thing he wants to do is another go on the pitch.
But out walks a surprise guest! Eddie Dennis is here! Dennis has a mic already and he throws their words at them: Gallus is “held to a higher standard,” but the only reason they had the NXT UK Tag Team Championships to lose to Pretty Deadly is because Joe got involved in their business! Dar says Dennis shouldn’t go there. Well, if Joe wants to go on a rampage, start with the one guy who he’s been avoiding since the start of this brand. Joe tells Dennis that if he wants a round, they can go next week! No, Dennis didn’t mean himself. It’s those lads. PRIMATE & T-BONE JUMP GALLUS! It’s a brawl between all six men, Dar staying far away!
Referees rush out to stop this, but that’s not that easy! Gallus chases off Dennis and his new pack of animals, Dar having fun while munching on breadsticks and sipping juice. Play the funky music! Gallus wants to be back on top, but is there a new trio of alpha males moving into their territory?
NXT UK Media catches up with Sam Gardwell.
“Don’t accost me, journo, I’m busy.” But Gradwell can’t get in the door because it’s locked. Dave Mastiff gets it for him and Gradwell gets on his case. Mastiff tells him to shut up, then slams the door shut to lock it again! Gradwell is furious and shouts, “I’m the Thunderstorm! I’m the season! Come back, yogurt!!” Will Gradwell’s big mouth continue to get him on people’s bad sides?
Moustache Mountain “quiz” each other.
“I am…” “Trent Seven. And I am…” “Tyler Bate!” And together, they are Moustache Mountain! For the very first time in a year, and in BT Sports Studio Arena! It’s unbelievable, really. Bate is going after the Heritage Cup as a singles competitor, but until then, they’re back as a tag team against Dar & Sha! The Big Strong Boy & the Artful Dodger are back in the BT Sports Studio Arena, but will it be another big win?
Emilia McKenzie VS Isla Dawn!
With Meiko Satomura on her side, #SuplexMillie got a win over the not-so-good witch of Scotland. But now, they go 1v1 to see if Millie can repeat the performance! Will Dawn turn her fortunes around like a tarot card on the table?
The bell rings and Millie ties right up with Dawn. They go around on the ropes and corners, and Dawn pushes Millie in. The ref counts, Dawn CHOPS Millie! Millie kicks low, headlocks and grinds. Dawn powers up, pulls hair but can’t power out as Millie grinds tighter! The ref reprimands as Dawn pulls hair again. Dawn throws body shots, powers out, but Millie arm-drags Dawn down! And again! Dawn blocks the third but Millie wrenches through to hit a SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Cover, ONE!! Dawn gets up but Millie seethes as she waistlocks. Dawn scrambles and hotshots Millie in the ropes! Dawn dropkicks Millie down to the corner!
Dawn grins as she brings Millie up to bump her off buckles. The ref counts as Dawn KICKS away on Millie in the corner! Dawn lets off, brings Millie out and SNAP SAIDOS! Dawn looms over Millie, stomps her down, then sits her up. Millie hits back, Dawn clubs her, and gets the fisherman hook. Millie cradle counters, just like last week! TWO, but Millie kicks low! Millie whips, Dawn reverses and KNEES Millie against ropes! Millie gasps and sputters, Dawn drags her up to CLUB her down! Cover, TWO! Dawn drags Millie up and underhooks the arms. Millie resists, but Dawn shifts to a STANDING BUTTERFLY LOCK! Millie endures, fights, and breaks the grip!

Millie glares at Dawn, pushes her around, and waistlocks again. Dawn drops and victory rolls, TWO! Millie SHOTGUN dropkicks Dawn to a corner! Then Millie runs in to RAM Dawn! Millie fires off shoulders, fires off haymakers, but the ref backs her up. Millie spins around him, but Dawn ROUNDHOUSES Millie first! Millie staggers into Dawn’s HALF ‘N’ HALF! Bridging cover, Dawn wins!!
Winner: Isla Dawn, by pinfall
The SORCERESS of Scotland redeems herself! Will Dawn only get darker before she has her chance at the championship?
Jinny and Joseph Conners speak.
The Spoiled Princess tells “Dani Luna, sweetheart, I know what you’re capable of. You’re one of the strongest girls in this division, if not the strongest. But you walk around with your ugly, miserable looking face and you act like you don’t even want to be here. But in reality, you don’t deserve to be here. You’re a small fish in a big pond, who wears the same dirty outfit to the ring every time. And next week, when you step into the ring with the Fashionista, you’re just gonna end up another fashion victim.” Will Jinny show the punk rock powerhouse the pecking order of NXT UK?
After the brawl we saw earlier, Eddie Dennis VS Joey Coffey is happening next week! Will the Welsh Dragon dethrone the Iron King or be slain instead?
NXT UK shares footage from backstage last week.
After Aoife Valkyrie’s message to Meiko Satomura, the Final Boss finds her again. “I know what this means. I accept.” The black feather is returned to Aoife, and now the Best in the World will battle the winged warrior! Will Meiko be used as the updraft to raise Valkyrie to the next level?
Jack Starz w/ Piper Niven VS Ashton Smith!
Training with Piper Niven has unleashed the fire inside Starz! But will that fire be quickly put out by The Prestige?

Smith is shocked, but three is three! Starz gets his very first singles win in NXT UK! Piper is so happy for him, and says she knew he could do it! Will Starz build on this momentum to be an even bigger star?
Kenny Williams VS Amir Jordan!
Two years ago, as this brand began, so did a friendship between these two young superstars. They trained together, struggled together, won and loss together, and supported each other when the other was injured. But as times got tough, something started to sour. When they disagreed on how to win, that was the last straw, and The Chancer cheated his tag partner out of the titles! A promise broken, a tag team broken, a friendship broken. But now, as these two face each other as enemies, will one of them be left broken in the ring?
The bell rings and Williams rushes Jordan but Jordan dodges to clothesline him first! Jordan rallies with more lariats, throws his scarf off and fires hands on Williams in a corner! The ref backs him off, Williams rushes Jordan again but Jordan punches him first! Jordan fires haymakers, whips Williams to ropes but Williams reverses, only for Jordan to CROSSBODY! Jordan rains down furious fists, but Williams gets away to the outside. Jordan chases him, but Williams baits him into a knee on the apron! Williams runs, Jordan dodges the dropkick to KICK Williams down! Jordan bumps Williams off apron, then CLUBS him around the way.

Williams gets in the ring, begs for mercy and says he’s hurt, but Jordan knows not to trust that! Williams swings on Jordan, Jordan blocks and LARIATS! BT Sports Studio fires up, Jordan runs in to SPLASH Williams in a corner! Jordan whips, Williams reverses but Jordan comes back to LEAPING LARIAT! Cover, TWO!
Williams bails out but Jordan pursues. Williams stays away, tries a sweep but Jordan kicks him back. Jordan WRECKS Williams with a dropkick! Jordan puts Williams back in, shoulders but into a KICK!

Williams clamps onto one arm, pushes Jordan’s head down, and puts so much pressure on that bad arm! Williams steps over, mule kicks Jordan in the head while pulling on the arm.

Williams brings Jordan up but Jordan body shots. Williams headbutts low, whips Jordan to ropes, but Jordan sunset flips! TWO, and Williams CLOBBERS Jordan! Cover, TWO!!
Williams smirks as he clamps onto Jordan, stomps him down, and then drags him up to throw clubbing crossface forearms! Williams covers again, TWO! Jordan hasn’t given up yet! Williams is annoyed, but Jordan throws body shots and haymakers in return! Jordan CHOPS, throws more hands, then reels Williams in. Williams NORTHERN LIGHTS, then rolls back to basement dropkick! Cover, TWO!! Jordan grits his teeth, Williams starts to lose his cool, and he CLAWS Jordan’s back. Williams “apologizes” to the ref, then brings Jordan up to snapmare and dig his knee into the back. Williams clamps onto the arm, grinds the shoulder and stands on Williams’ head!
Jordan endures, Williams pulls Jordan’s arms into a straitjacket! Jordan endures, even as Williams pulls him back against a knee. Jordan fights up, turns things around, but Williams kicks low. Williams bumps Jordan off buckles, throws forearms, but Jordan kicks low! Williams rams into Jordan, hoists him up top, then ROCKS him with a slapping palm strike! Williams climbs up to get Jordan, but Jordan resists! Jordan fires body shots back, then GOURD BUSTERS Williams to the mat! Jordan adjusts as Williams staggers up, and Jordan missile dropkicks! Williams tumbles all the way to a corner and Jordan runs in to fire off!

The ref stops him there, but Williams just goes to a different corner! Jordan rolls Williams up first, TWO!! Williams hurries up, Jordan gets him, waistlock but they end up heading for the ref!
Jordan knows what’s coming! Jordan gets away from the low blow mule kick, to SUPERKICK in return! Cover, TWO!?! Williams survives and Jordan is frustrated! BT Sports Studio slowly builds to a rally, Williams drags himself to a corner, and Jordan storms over. Williams boots him away, then gets him in a clinch to RAM him into the second buckle! It was just loose enough for Jordan to hit the steel behind the padding! Williams hits a HEADLOCK DRIVER!! Cover, Williams wins!!
Winner: Kenny Williams, by pinfall
The Chancer took a chance and it paid off! He gets away with another one, and has a big smile on his face over what he just did to his former friend. “Luck is all I need!” Will Williams leave the Bhangra Boy behind as he goes for his own glory and gold?
A pretty good episode for following Prelude and WrestleMania Week. All singles matches tonight but we got a very good tag match set up for next week. Dar & Sha VS Moustache Mountain is going to be great, and I have a feeling Moustache Mountain wins so that Bate can continue strong into the Heritage Cup match. Otherwise, I think Seven loses the match for them so that Dar & Sha can build themselves in the UK Tag Division while not costing Bate. Supernova Sessions was fun, with Gallus taking the couch and Dar unable to do anything about it. Gallus taking on Dennis, T-Bone and Primate already sounds like a lot of fun, and starting with Joe Coffey VS Dennis is a good call.
Frazer VS Huxley was a great opening match, Frazer winning was natural since he is that good and is building up. McKenzie VS Dawn was good, though I’m not sure the point of it other than to keep Dawn strong with her new Heel persona. Meiko responding to Aoife was good, and that match will be great, but I do feel like Meiko could put Aoife over so that Aoife can start to chase Kay Lee Ray and the title now. Jinny starting a thing with Dani Luna is interesting, but it will be good for Dani to get reps with someone as experienced as Jinny. Starz VS Smith was a great match, especially for Starz since he won. Not sure where he and Piper are heading, but it’s fun for Piper to be a coach now while the UK title is still tangled with KLR.
That quick interaction with Gradwell and Mastiff was good, because Mastiff is just shrugging Gradwell off as opposed to letting him get under his skin. That match is going to be great as a fight of “proper British heavyweights,” and could be a chance for Gradwell to get a big win. Jordan VS Williams was great stuff, great amount of story given their history. Two years sure flies, huh? I forgot it had been that long. Williams winning with sneaky tactics was perfect for him, as he is now able to go into the Heritage Cup Division, where A-Kid the current champion is a Face. A-Kid could win, or he could lose to Bate and it’d still be alright, Bate could be a strong Face against Williams, too.
