Over the weekend, it was announced that she, Mercedes Martinez and Io Shirai are in a TRIPLE THREAT for the NXT Women’s Championship at TakeOver! What are her thoughts? Toni says Shirai has been untouchable ever since she entered NXT. At least, untouchable for anyone not named “Toni Storm.” Everyone’s a big fan, Toni had Shirai at her feet, and Toni was holding the belt up. That was just a preview for what we’ll see in a couple weeks. Shirai won’t stop her, “dead weight” Mercedes won’t stop her. Toni is on top of her game and it’ll be on full display in her match tonight.
William Regal talks with Edge backstage!
The NXT General Manager congratulates the Rated R Superstar on winning the 2021 Men’s Royal Rumble match, and Edge admires the infamous brass knuckles. But will they soon be discussing Edge wanting to bring the NXT Championship to WrestleMania?
Austin Theory w/ Johnny Gargano VS Leon Ruff!

But he isn’t done with Ruff, he drags him up for a second ATL! “What goes up must come down!” Theory proves gravity is real, but he’s about to add on! He grabs the ring bell, only for DEXTER LUMIS to be there! Lumis grabs at Theory, Theory scrambles away, but Lumis ripped out some of Theory’s hair! Will this just be a little bit of what Lumis takes from Theory and The Way as we approach Vengeance Day?
Santos Escobar speaks.
“El Legado del Fantasma is always in control. When there’s business to take care of, we take care of it. When there are people to put down, we put them down.” That is what they will do tonight. Legado shows how powerful they really are. Joaquin Wilde & Raul Mendoza will BURY Lucha House Party once and for all and take their rightful places in the Dusty Cup Semifinals. Then Escobar will “manhandle” Curt Stallion and stop the upstart in his tracks. Tonight, everyone will see that this is Legado’s empire! Their future is bright, but for everyone else, the end is near. Will that be true after the Legado is put in the ring?
NXT hears from Tian Sha.
“She” says that back before the dynasties, the land was ruled by an honorable king. He had two children, an older son and younger daughter. But corrupted by greed, the son killed his father, the king, and took power, ruling with an iron fist and bringing dishonor to the family. The younger daughter lived in fear and fled into exile. In that exile, she found a dragon, and asked it to teach her, give her the strength to restore honor and take back the kingdom. The dragon agreed, at the cost of her soul. She was put through four grueling trials that would “purge her fear” and replace it with power. She would be reborn as a warrior with no weaknesses. And the final thing the dragon taught her was how to ascend to the throne.
The young daughter destroyed her older brother and returned honor to her family. But then, upon taking the throne, she realized she would have to become the one thing she despised. She would have to instill fear in others, and she made the people fear the name, “Tian Sha,” for generations. And now, she has come to NXT!
Men’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Quarterfinals: El Legado del Fantasma VS Lucha House Party!
We heard the Leader of Leaders and “Champion of Champions” speak on behalf of his Technical Assassin and Death From Above, but this is the rebuttal! Will Lince Dorado & Gran Metalik prove Escobar wrong and be the ones to take Wilde & Mendoza out?

Winners: El Legado del Fantasma, by pinfall (advance to the semifinals)
So far, Escobar’s prophecy is coming true! But here comes MSK to see their future opponents in person! “Congratulations, Legado!” Are they feeling good? They should be! A victory like that is felt in the gut. But that feeling is going to be taken away when MSK beats the brakes off ’em! MSK is Michael, Legado is Tito! Legado is just in the way of the meteoric rise of Wes Lee and Nash Carter in becoming Dusty Cup champions! It’s so pretty, isn’t it? So Legado better train real hard, because it’ll be MSK all night and all day!
The Kings of NXT arrive again!
Pete Dunne leads the way this time as Danny Burch says it’s Wednesday night! But Dunne’s been rather quiet, what’s on his mind? Wait, Dunne can be quieter than usual? Dunne says he just wants to find Balor. That sounds great! Let’s go get Balor! What will the kings have in mind for The Prince here tonight?
NXT returns as The Kings of NXT head to the ring.
Dunne leads the way again as they walk through the ropes, and he grabs a mic. “I told Finn Balor to his face that I’m not waitin’ anymore! But he didn’t listen. So last week, I delivered the message again and snapped his fingers.” Dunne doesn’t want to be forced to make it any more clear than that. So here comes the NXT Champion! Finn Balor has a mic and tells Dunne, “You say you’re done waiting, but it looks to me like you’re still hiding in line behind them two clowns.” Dunne says he doesn’t hide behind anyone! Balor goes to the ring and stares the three kings down. “Doesn’t look like that to me.” Dunne has his boys back off a bit, and Balor gets in the ring with Dunne.
Dunne says Balor better hold onto the belt tight, because the first chance Dunne gets, it’s his. Well he’s got his chance! TakeOver: Vengeance Day, Balor VS Dunne for the NXT Championship!! But here comes EDGE!! The Men’s Royal Rumble winner is in the Capital Wrestling Center for the first time ever, and everyone is loving it! Well, except maybe Dunne and Balor. Edge has a mic to join the conversation. “This. This feels good. A lot of times in WWE, we put the focus on the E. But here in NXT, the focus is on the second W, and that’s fun.” Edge says for years, he’s watched NXT as a fan, like anyone else.
But he has always seen passion, hunger and fire in the eyes! What people don’t know, and what he’ll tell us is that this show helped Edge find his passion. The passion needed to get his career back after nine YEARS. That passion won the Royal Rumble on Sunday, and now Edge can challenge any champion within the company. Now, Edge looks at Balor and Dunne and sees two of the best. Dunne is so much like a young Edge, both the good and the bad, but that’s what makes them who they are. Edge would’ve shrugged his shoulders at himself, too, kid!
And then with Balor, Edge sees a guy who is operating on an entirely different level. Balor is “in a zone that is special to watch.” So that said, Edge will be watching TakeOver, because Edge has never had the NXT Championship. So no matter who wins at TakeOver, the NXT title is intriguing. And if Edge hasn’t made his choice by then, who knows? This fight could be his choice. Edge has put the Prince AND the Bruiserweight on notice, but will he be targeting them after Vengeance Day?
Backstage interview with Johnny Gargano!
But he interrupts by saying it’s a good thing this new interviewer isn’t McKenzie. McKenzie asks stupid questions. Gargano wants a good journalist for a change. Like Howard Cosell to Muhammad Ali. What’s she got for “the kid?” Her question is, how is The Way feeling after Theory’s match with Leon Ruff? Well Theory showed everyone the way to win a match. And if that freak, Dexter Lumis, keeps messing with Theory, Theory will just have to put him in his place! Then, after the confrontation with Shotzi and Ember, how are Candice and Indi feeling going into their semifinals match next week? The only way that match ends is with Candice & Indi punching a ticket to TakeOver to become the first-ever Women’s Dusty Cup winners! This is going great, too!
Thanks, but the last question is, what is his reaction to the news from Regal’s office that Gargano will defend his NXT North American Championship at TakeOver, against Kushida? She said the K-WORD!! Who is she again?! Does she work here?! Is she new here? Is she just some crazy lady who got back here and spreads lies?! They’re going to see Regal and sort this out. Cameraman, you, too! We’re going to see this new girl get fired! But will Gargano be disappointed to hear the truth?
NXT returns and Gargano says he doesn’t care if it’s her first day, she’s either fired or “getting put in crazy people jail.” Gargano knocks on Regal’s door but Kushida answers! And Kushida asks if Gargano has an appointment. Gargano says the North American Champion doesn’t need an appointment. Kushida says he does because Regal is very busy. Really? Fine. Gargano will come back later. Then he sucker punches Kushida! They brawl, Kushida throws Gargano into a wall, then clubs him, then throws him through a door! Then Kushida PENALTY KICKS Gargano’s arm! Regal and security reprimand Kushida but the damage is done! Will the Time Splitter still go for gold on Vengeance Day?
Toni Storm VS Jessi Kamea w/ Aliyah & Robert Stone!
The Lightning From Down Under promised to show her full power tonight, and she’s going after the newest client of the Robert Stone Brand! Will Toni Time have a good time tonight?
The bell rings, Toni and Jessi tie up and Toni knees low then ROCKS Jessi with a forearm! Toni whips Jessi to ropes to snap her off, then BOOTS her down! Jessi scrambles, Toni runs and hits a SLIDING LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Toni looms over Jessi, waistlocks, but Jessi elbows free! Jessi fireman’s carries but Toni holds ropes, so Jessi throws her to the top buckle! Then KICKS Toni down! Cover, TWO! Jessi drags Toni up, whips her to ropes, but Toni reverses to CHOP Jessi, then waistlock. Jessi bucks the O’Conner roll away, then hits a basement calf kick! But wait, Mercedes gets in and she talks trash to Toni! Jessi goes after Mercedes first but Mercedes hits back!
Winner: Jessi Kamea, by disqualification
Mercedes cost Toni the match so now Toni is going after her! They brawl while the Robert Stone Brand regroups and has Jessi leave it at this. But here comes Shirai! We’re going to get a continuation from last week! Toni GERMAN SUPLEXES Mercedes, rains down fists, but Shirai perches on the top rope to watch her opponents fight. Mercedes gets up, Toni HEADBUTTS her! Both women fall, and Shirai adjusts on the top rope, to ASAI MOONSAULT! Direct hit and both contenders are down! Will the Evil Genius have a plan to use Toni and Mercedes against each other to her benefit?
Curt Stallion speaks.
“On the 205th episode of 205 Live, I went out there and I won a Fatal 5 Way match for a future opportunity at the Cruiserweight Championship.” And tonight is the absolute biggest moment Stallion has had not just in his career, but in life. All the work and time put in, not just here in the WWE but to be in this position, against a guy like Escobar. Escobar has been running, but Stallion has him cornered. Place your bets as the Lonestar makes Texas proud.
Cameron Grimes is on his way back!
“Cameron Grimes, always at the right place at the right time!” Will it be Grime Time once again as the Carolina Caveman makes his return to NXT next week?
NXT Cruiserweight Championship: Santos Escobar w/ Legado del Fantasma VS Curt Stallion!
The Leader of Leaders has delayed this match long enough! No sneak attacks or dirty tricks this time, he has to put up or shut up! Will Stallion make sure it’s the latter and then finally ride off into the sunset with the gold?
The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and this fight a long time coming finally happens!
Stallion dares Escobar to do something but Escobar doesn’t take “rookie” Stallion seriously. Escobar and Stallion circle, tie up, and go around the ropes. Stallion has Escobar in the corner but lets off as the ref counts. They circle and tie up again, and Escobar powers Stallion to ropes to knee and CLUB him!

Escobar stomps Stallion then drags him around to stomp him more. Escobar drags Stallion up, puts him in a corner, then cravats to grind him down.
Stallion endures, throws body shots but Escobar snapmares him to a seated cobra twist! Escobar twists Stallion’s wrists and puts on a keylock as he talks trash. Stallion endures, fights up, but Escobar whips Stallion and things speed up, for Escobar to dropkick Stallion down! Cover, TWO! Stallion is still in this, and Scarlett Bordeaux is watching from the perch! Escobar keeps on Stallion with a keylock, but Stallion fights up, only for Escobar to dragon sleeper.

Escobar smirks, he lets his hair down and still stares Scarlett down, but Stallion rolls him up! TWO!! Stallion clotheslines Escobar out of the ring! Fans rally for Stallion while Escobar is flustered and NXT goes to break!

Escobar keeps moving around and has an arm for a half straitjacket modification! Stallion still endures, fans rally up now, and Scarlett is still staring Escobar down. Escobar KNEES Stallion in the side as he holds onto a leg and arm. Stallion endures this modified surfboard, so Escobar lets go to kick away on Stallion’s side! Stallion gets to a corner, Escobar drags him up and throws forearms. Escobar fireman’s carries Stallion but Stallion fights free with elbows!

Winner: Santos Escobar, by pinfall (still NXT Cruiserweight Champion)
Legado dominates the night, but Scarlett is still sinister and stoic from where she watches the celebration. Wait, Kross is storming down the ramp! He BOOTS Mendoza, scoops and TOSSES Wilde, then drags Mendoza back up to gut wrench and TOSS into barriers! Escobar sees he’s alone with Kross, but doesn’t seem to sweat the apocalypse before him. Kross gets in the ring, and says they have a problem. The solution: time. A double-edged sword. All that will give Escobar is time to think on the inevitable. Now run along. Escobar doesn’t like being talked down to, but the clock is ticking. What happens when time is up?
NXT Media catches Edge as he heads out.
After a fist bump with Bronson Reed, Edge goes to the parking lot, and the reporter asks if Edge has made any decisions yet. No, not yet. But even if he had, he wouldn’t say. But then Kross storms over and says Edge has a very big decision to make. That will be a moment Edge will have to live with for the rest of his life. Kross hopes Edge chooses wisely, and not emotionally. Because in the end, it won’t be Pete Dunne or Finn Balor going to WrestleMania. It’ll be Kross, having taken back the title he never lost. Time tells all, even for the ultimate opportunist. Sounds scary.
But with words like that, they can be motivating. They could motivate Edge to come back to NXT, and maybe Kross wouldn’t like that. Will Mr. Doomsday be the one regretting the decisions he’s made, should the Rated R Superstar want to go from red to black ‘n’ gold?
Men’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Quarterfinals: The Undisputed Era VS Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher!
Adam Cole and Roderick Strong is the one combination in the Era that hasn’t put their names to a tag team achievement. The Psycho Killer and the Professor of Pain put their combination together out of respect, but also curiosity. Which combination proves itself superior and then head for the semifinals?
The teams sort out and Ciampa starts with Cole, a very familiar match-up. They circle, tie up, and Ciampa powers Cole to a corner.

The gritty gladiators are the ones to #ShockTheSystem and they take out the UE! But will they make it to TakeOver with their next opponents being Grizzled Young Veterans? For that matter, Zack Gibson and James Drake walk out to make sure Ciampa and Thatcher understand who they’re up against! And then a brawl breaks out!! Referees and Regal hurry to stop this, but there won’t be any stopping it next week!
A great episode of NXT as we draw closer to the newly renamed TakeOver event. I like that NXT is bringing back old school WWE titles in their own way. Vengeance Day is an interesting choice but they got a pretty good logo out of it. We got a lot of stuff put together for it, too, namely the three top singles titles. Dunne calling out Balor, Balor giving Dunne the match because he wants it just as much, and Edge teasing that NXT is a choice was all great stuff. Kross making sure Edge was aware he could be champion by Mania time was also a good move, because there could be a match on TV of Kross VS winner from Vengeance Day. But as cool as it’d be for Edge to go for a title he’s never, ever had, pretty sure Edge is choosing one of the other titles.
The Women’s Championship Triple Threat is set but the segment plugging it was only alright. Mercedes costing Toni her match was pretty good, and Shirai getting them both was a nice touch, but I think we were all pretty sold on the match from last week’s huge brawl. Kushida VS Gargano was obviously the move, and could go either way given just how great Gargano is as both sore loser and sore winner. The Way had really good stuff tonight, and it works out for Theory that he wins even after all the shenanigans. Theory VS Lumis, Hair VS Hair for TakeOver? Sounds good to me. Cameron Grimes is also on his way back, will he look to cost Lumis?
I like that we got lore on Tian Sha, the mysterious mastermind behind Xia Li’s and Boa’s transformations. Maybe now Tian Sha (Karen Q) will start getting back in the ring. If Xia Li is this dangerous as her student, I can’t wait to see how powerful they make Tian Sha herself. We got good promos from Escobar and Stallion, but I feel bad for Stallion’s great run from 205 Live being turned into the transition for Escobar VS Kross. If Kross is feuding with Escobar, but it literally can’t be for the title because Kross is 265 pounds, why not cost Escobar the title so Stallion can carry it for bit and freshen things up? I feel like that’d be great story on Stallion’s end, where he only got the title because Kross and Scarlett interfered.
All the Dusty Cup matches tonight were great. Dakota & Raquel VS KC Squared was a really good opener for the night, and that match could’ve gone either way, but it makes sense for Dakota & Raquel to take it. There’s a lot that can happen with them in the finals because they have history with both teams on the other side. I would think the Faces win, so that Shotzi and Ember can get back for the loss at WarGames while making history, but sometimes a Heel VS Heel sounds fun. Legado wins mostly to prove Escobar right, but also so that MSK can be the Faces to their Heels. Not really sure MSK had the best promo there, but they’ll find their footing in that department.
Thatcher & Ciampa VS Undisputed Era was the best match tonight, and the former is really making it work as a team. They got over the dysfunction in the first round and are smooth in the second round. Their quick scuffle with GYV at the end was a nice touch, too, for what could be the best match in the tournament so far. The result with Thatcher & Ciampa VS GYV will go a long way to determining the other side, MSK VS Legado, but I like all the combinations possible.
My Score: 9.4/10
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.
— IMPACT (@IMPACTWRESTLING) April 16, 2021
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.

NXT UK Media interviews Noam Dar and Sha Samuels.
How is Dar feeling after his loss at NXT UK Prelude? 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 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?

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.
Jordan bumps Williams off apron again, but won’t let him get away yet! Williams knees back low and hard, and whips Jordan at steps. Jordan stops himself, then dodges as Williams rushes back in! Williams crashes into and over the steps! Jordan stomps Williams down, gets in the ring, and watches Williams on the outside. 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 scowls as he climbs the corner just to KICK away on Jordan’s hand! Williams runs to WRECK Jordan with a dropkick in return! Jordan writhes, Williams paces about, and he goes out at 5 of 10 to get Jordan up. Jordan hits back, Williams CLUBS Jordan, then tears the tape away from the shoulders. Williams CLUBS Jordan more, then puts him in the ring. Cover, TWO! Williams CHOPS Jordan on the back, and brings him up to ROCK him!
Jordan ends up in a corner, Williams snapmares and scrapes Jordan’s face! Cover, TWO! Williams seethes, clamps onto Jordan’s arm, and KNOCKS him down with a straddle attack. 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. Jordan endures so Williams rolls back to armbar! Williams stomps away on Jordan’s head, then shifts to a cover, TWO! Jordan is still in this but Williams seethes more. 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!

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.
