Moustache Mountain VS Ashton Smith & Oliver Carter!

Trent Seven and the NXT UK Heritage Cup Champion, Tyler Bate, are always up for a tag! Will they prove they’re still a force to be reckoned with? Or will the Prestige & the Predator Killer prove there’s more room at the top than once thought?

Carter gets an arm-drag and has Bate in an armlock on the mat. Bate fights up, Carter wrenches and wristlocks but Bate rolls and uses ropes to roll back.

But wait, Symbiosis swaggers out to the stage. These three don’t like Moustache Mountain and they don’t like Smith & Carter, but they’re having a lot of fun watching them beat each other up. Seven and Dennis talk trash to each other as Bate and Smith slowly rises. Bate drags Smith up, underhooks, but Smith powers up to dump Bate out! Seven keeps Symbiosis back and then the ref tells them to back off. But here come Jack Starz and Dave Mastiff! They fight off Dennis, Primate and T-Bone!

Bate & Seven overcome all the chaos to stand up tall! These pillars of NXT UK won’t be toppled so easily, but can they get back towards tag title gold?

 

NXT UK Media catches up with Jinny & Joseph Conners.

What does the future look like for the two of them on the brand? Conners sarcastically says that’s an imaginative question, and Jinny snidely says their future is brighter than this reporter’s. They wrap this up and say they’ve fulfilled their media obligations for the evening. But then Jinny spots Emilia McKenzie training with Meiko Satomura. Jinny asks if Emilia is still trying to impress Meiko. So pathetic how she’s content to be second fiddle. Oh is it? Yeah, it is! When is Emilia gonna get it through her head that no one cares about her? Sweetheart, this isn’t to insult you. This is just stating facts. And what Jinny sees is very pathetic.

Emilia couldn’t care less so just go away. Oh, Jinny will make Emilia care. Meiko and Emilia return to training, will the Spoiled Princess feel the wrath of Suplex Millie soon enough?

 

NXT UK Media catch up with Jack Starz & Dave Mastiff.

They went after Symbiosis earlier, so what exactly happened? Mastiff says that what just happened is Symbiosis were sticking their dirty, rotten, filthy noses where they don’t belong. But then Nina Samuels barges in, with a “Nina Samuels Show” microphone and she takes over the interview. Nina says hi and welcomes them as her first guests. What channel is her show on? Uh… Anyway, what’s new with them? Well they were just saying Symbiosis is sticking their noses where they don’t belong. Yes, simply outrageous. Nina remembers when Blair Davenport- Starz interrupts and says we don’t care about her problems, this is about Symbiosis.

Right, of course. Symbiosis did them wrong, and Blair Davenport has done Nina wrong! Starz & Mastiff leave while Nina rants on about Blair knocking her down off the corner and ruins the moment. Nina says that concludes the first episode of the Nina Samuels Show, but will it be canceled before episode two?

 

Xia Brookside VS Dani Luna!

The speedy second gen superstar gets to have a friendly showdown with the Punk Rock Powerhouse of Subculture for the first time ever! But will things stay friendly when everyone wants after the Final Boss?

The bell rings and the two approach. Xia dodges the tie-up and does a little shimmy to taunt Dani. The two go again, Xia gets around to a waistlock but Dani switches to SLAM Xia down. Xia fights up and gets a wristlock and the two struggle for control. Dani fireman’s carries but Xia slips off to wrench the wrist more. Dani fights up, scoops and SLAMS Xia, but Xia holds onto the arm! Xia twists the wrist again, reels Dani in for a headlock, but Dani powers up. Xia holds on and thrashes the headlock but Dani powers out on the second try. They ram shoulders but Xia almost bounces off Dani. Dani swings a clotheslines but Xia slips under then leap frogs over, but runs into Dani’s arms!

Dani grins as she pops Xia up but Xia lands on her feet! Xia tilt-o-whirls but Dani stops it part way. Xia uses that to go from crucifix to sunset flip, but Dani stays up. Dani slaps Xia’s hands away, hauls Xia right up but Xia sunset flips again! Dani manages to roll through but Xia comes back with a wheelbarrow. Dani shoves her away, Xia ducks and dodges and tilt-o-whirls, but Dani SLAMS Xia down! Xia sputters to a corner but Dani’s right on her with a facelock. Dani brings Xia around but Xia throws body shots. Dani wrenches, facelocks again and suplexes Xia up for a stalling SLAM! Cover, TWO! Dani clamps onto Xia but Xia resists. Dani powers through and gets the armlock!

Xia endures as Dani grinds the shoulder. Xia pulls fingers but Dani pushes down harder. BT Sports Studio rallies up, Xia fights to her feet and throws body shots. Dani KNEES low, KNEES again, then hauls Xia up for another stalling suplex! Xia makes it a small package, TWO! Dani CLOBBERS Xia with a clothesline! Cover, TWO! Dani clamps onto the arm again and also wants the chinbar. Xia resists but she’s still caught. Xia can only stare at the ropes before Dani drags her away. Xia pries at the fingers again but Dani holds on tight. BT Sports Studio rallies up more and Xia gets up to throw more body shots and even shoulders!

Dani kicks low, whips Xia to a corner but she goes up and boots back! Xia hops to RANA Dani away! Dani staggers but Xia dropkicks her to ropes! Dani comes back but Xia dodges to dropkick Dani again! Xia fires up and runs in at the corner, DOUBLE KNEES to the back! Xia keeps moving, RUNNING NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Dani’s tough but Xia’s determined and she brings Dani up. Dani ROCKS her with a forearm first! Xia shakes her head and ROCKS Dani with forearm after forearm! Xia swings but into a waistlock. Xia elbows free but no Code Breaker as Dani pops Xia into a WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM! Then deadlifts Xia to a FALL AWAY SLAM!

Dani fires up now and BT Sports Studio is rallying as she fireman’s carries for a POP-UP SIT-OUT POWERBOMB! Cover, Dani wins!!

Winner: Dani Luna, by pinfall

Speed could not trump strength and Xia is frustrated. Dani says it’s all good and offers a handshake, but Xia slaps it away! Will Xia find what she needs to get over the hump and towards the title? Is Dani going to rock ‘n’ roll all the way to the top and leave Xia behind?

 

NXT UK Media interviews Sid Scala.

They’re hoping for an update on the Assistant General Manager’s- Oh, well, Stevie Turner interrupts and brings up Blair Davenport attacking her. What has Sid done? NOTHING. Blair said she’ll keep doing this until someone stops her. Stevie wants Sid to reinstate Blair so Stevie can personally ensure Blair won’t need to be suspended. Sid tells “Ms. Turner” that he understands what she’s been through, but he will talk with Johnny Saint and take this request into consideration. He better. Stevie storms out and Sid apologizes to the media, but what decision will he and Saint reach about the sinister and sadistic gothic warrior?

 

NXT UK Media interviews Sam Gradwell.

Why did he deface Subculture’s spray paint mural? “Oh, I ruined their little artwork~?” Well where’s the Thunderstorm mural, huh? He’s been here since day one, just like Mark Andrews, and he is sick of daft little sellouts like Subculture getting all the attention! Gradwell is a better fighter, a better singer and probably even better at skateboarding. Not that Andrews will get to do much of those after Gradwell’s done with him. But Andrews storms over and points out a skateboard that was broken! Was this Gradwell’s doing? Before Gradwell can defend himself, Andrews SMACKS him with the skateboard!

Security and trainees hurry to stop this brawl from getting worse, but Andrews asks what Gradwell’s problem is! Gradwell keeps calling Andrews small and daft, but will he be the one who wizens up after they go 1v1?

 

Charlie Dempsey VS Josh Morrell!

For weeks, Dempsey has promised NXT UK that we’ll see something we’ve never seen before from his merciless and meticulous technical style. But will #TurboTerry be too fast for even a wrestler trained by European icons to catch?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Dempsey waistlocks then slips under to flying-mare Morrell right to a wristlock. Morrell kicks Dempsey away, kips up and the two reset. They tie up, Dempsey gets the arm with a double wristlock but Morrell throws body shots. Dempsey throws Morrell over and has a headscissor while still keeping on the arm. Morrell gets free of the headscissors but Dempsey just shifts position to then have the wristlock. Dempsey changes to a top wristlock, BT Sports Studio rallies as Morrell goes up and over to headscissor Dempsey down! Morrell has the arm now, but Dempsey uses a wrestler bridge to fight up and around.

Dempsey turns Morrell over, bridges up and out to then float to a headlock. Morrell fights up, Dempsey grinds the headlock, knuckle locks and lifts Morrell with one arm! Dempsey carries Morrell around, then lets him down for a bridging arm-drag! Dempsey bends fingers and elbow back to then has the wristlock. Morrell spins through, headlocks but Dempsey powers out. The two ram shoulders, Morrell keeps moving but Dempsey drops and hurdles to a BIG hip toss! Cover, TWO! Dempsey clamps onto Morrell, WRINGS his arm out, then stands on him for a CORNISH HYPE! Morrell flounders after the big arm-drag but Dempsey is right on him.

Dempsey whips Morrell to ropes, Morrell leaps over for a sunset flip, TWO! Dempsey has the prawn hold, TWO and Morrell’s back to the sunset! TWO and Dempsey has the cover again, TWO and Morrell has it! TWO and Dempsey changes to a jackknife! TWO, the two are up and Dempsey hooks the arms. Backslide, with a bridge! TWO, but Dempsey is right back on with a FUJIWARA ARMBAR! Morrell endures, moves around, reaches for ropes and BT Sports Studio fires up! Morrell rolls, Dempsey with him, KNEEBAR HEEL HOOK FUSION! Dempsey thrashes and twists the leg as Morrell endures, but Morrell gets free!

Dempsey keeps the foot, flips Morrell and Morrell lands on his feet! Morrell throws forearms, whips Dempsey corner to corner but Dempsey reverses. Morrell goes up in the corner and corkscrews over Dempsey! Morrell ducks the back hand to ENZIGURI Dempsey down! Morrell hurries to get Dempsey up but Dempsey uses another bridging arm-drag to send Morrell into buckles! Dempsey ROCKS Morrell with a EuroUpper, then GUT WRENCH SUPLEXES! Cover, TWO! Dempsey SLAMS Morrell’s head down, covers again, TWO! Dempsey again SLAMS Morrell’s head, covers, TWO!! Morrell survives but Dempsey keeps on with a clinch.

Dempsey EuroUppers, whips and headbutts low! Dempsey steadies himself, whips Morrell again but Morrell rolls of Dempsey’s back! Dempsey trips Morrell and has the legs, but Morrell flips the Boston Crab into a cover! TWO and Dempsey has the sunset, TWO! Morrell returns, tucks Dempsey in for a flip and SLAM! Like a partial powerbomb! Jackknife cover, TWO as Dempsey bridges up to turn Morrell. Morrell fights the backslide but swings into a waistlock. HIGH ANGLE GERMAN SUPLEX with a bridging cover! TWO!?! Morrell escapes but Dempsey is still on him! Dempsey wrenches the arm but Morrell fights the wristlock!

Dempsey throws Morrell over for the DOUBLE wristlock, then an armbar! Morrell fights but Dempsey combines half nelson with leg hook, INVERTED BOW ‘N’ ARROW!! Morrell’s foot is behind his head!! Morrell taps, Dempsey wins!

Winner: Charlie Dempsey, by submission

He was right! We’ve never seen something like that! Will Dempsey bend and break every opponent put in front of him?

 

Ilja Dragunov and A-Kid have a face-to-face.

The NEW NXT UK Champion says this is a very special moment for him. Coming back to NXT UK as the UK Champion makes him very happy. But he’s also very aware that there are people waiting for him. A-Kid does congratulate Dragunov, it is a feat in itself to defeat Walter. But AK wants to also say that they’re not enemies. AK is the only one who understands Dragunov, because he was the inaugural NXT UK Heritage Cup Champion. Every single time AK was defending the cup, he felt the pressure. He wants to create a legacy, and the only way to do that is by taking the NXT UK Championship next.

Dragunov can see AK is motivated, but he just beat “the most dominant champion of the modern day. Over 800 days, he reigned. He beat me once. No, no, small correction: he destroyed me once. And I came back.” But please, don’t be naïve. There’s no comparison here. But that’s the thing, AK isn’t comparing himself to anyone. Has Dragunov ever thought of the impact that year has had on them? Spending a whole year focusing on one man and one title, training for that. Training and solving that problem. It’s not about enduring pain or strength of will. “It’s about making mistakes. And when you lose your temper-”

Okay, hold on. Oh, just like right now. AK says he will catch Dragunov and will only give three options: tap, snap or nap. Dragunov wants AK to listen. “This is very, very easy. It doesn’t matter which trick you bring out of your pocket. It really doesn’t. Because I didn’t win this with technical abilities. This title, it wants more than this. It needs pain, it needs struggle, it needs the will. You’ve gotta be more than just a human to hold this.” And in two weeks, Dragunov will put AK in his place, because right now, you’re looking at The Czar, and he’s taking on “just a kid.” Champion and challenger stand up, shake hands, but the gloves are coming off on October 14th!

 

NXT UK hears from the Heritage Cup Tournament finalists.

Wolfgang says someone recently asked him what the Heritage Cup means to him. This is passion, what he cares about, literally heritage. He wants to inspire a new generation of UK wrestlers the way William Regal, Fit Finlay and Johnny Saint inspired him. Noam Dar says the heritage of this business means everything to him. Much respect to the legends, but “being humble doesn’t work as much as being aware.” Dar’s only 28 and only getting better. If he hasn’t passed you wait, he’ll catch up now. Dar’s game plan is hit Wolfgang with the “ninja sharpness,” not get hurt and put money in his pocket.

Wolfgang says the difference between them is that he actually cares. He actually cares about those who laid the groundwork for this generation, but Dar just cares about his Louis Vuitton jackets. The cup is just money to Dar. But Dar says Wolfgang can’t be denied. Wolfgang may’ve helped pave the roads, but Dar’s breaking the speed records on them. Dar is moving at the speed of light and will run Wolfgang over. But Wolfgang says it isn’t just about Gallus Boys On Top, but about him showing what he can do. Dar is the only thing in his way. Dar says Wolfgang isn’t the only dangerous animal here. Dar’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and he’ll eat Wolfie alive. “Tyler Bate, you’re next on the menu. Check please.”

 

Joe Coffey w/ Gallus VS Jordan Devlin!

The Iron King has had a lot of fun alongside his boys, Markus and Wolfie, but he knows when to get serious, too. The Irish Ace’s ego has gotten far bigger than that private locker room of his, but will he at least teach Coffey not to mess with his stuff? Or will he be made to take that ego and shove it?

The bell rings and the two circle. Coffey’s fire up but Devlin takes it slow. They tie up, Devlin gives a testing kick but Coffey shrugs it off. They tie up, Coffey pushes Devlin to ropes but Devlin turns it around and pie faces on the ropebreak. They go again, another tie up, and Devlin wrenches to a wristlock. Coffey fights but Devlin YANKS the arm, wrenches again, but Coffey rolls and kips up to wrench back to a hammerlock. Devlin drops to a knee as Coffey cranks the hold, but Devlin sits to reach back and jump up for a flying-mare! Devlin kips up and BT Sports Studio cheer the stand off.

Devlin and Coffey tie up again, Devlin has the arm but Coffey grabs at Devlin’s face. They tie up with knuckle locks now and go for a test of strength. Coffey rams Devlin down, covers, TWO as Devlin bridges. Coffey powers up but Devlin kips up to keep fighting. Devlin breaks one knuckle lock but Coffey blocks the monkey flip! Devlin sunset flips, Coffey rolls through and gets the legs! Devlin rolls and throws Coffey off the Boston Crab, but Coffey cartwheels to stay up. BT Sports Studio and Gallus cheer the technical exchange as Coffey and Devlin reset. They tie up again, Devlin headlocks and grinds the hold. Devlin tries a takeover but Coffey blocks.

Coffey throws body shots, powers up but Devlin holds on tight! Devlin cranks the hold, Coffey fights up and throws body shots but Devlin jumps for a flying takeover! Coffey keeps his shoulders up and turns things to a cover, TWO as Devlin holds on. Coffey fights up, powers out but Devlin ducks and dodges and slides, but swings into a back suplex! Devlin lands on his feet, trips Coffey then walks all over him. Devlin talks smack to Gallus but turns around into a haymaker! Coffey gets Devlin up off the mat and throws body shots and more fists. Devlin ends up on ropes but he turns things around to whip. Coffey and Devlin go crisscross, Coffey CLOBBERS Devlin!

Coffey watches Devlin stagger up and clotheslines him up and out of the ring! The ring count starts, Devlin bumps into Mark and Wolfgang. Devlin wants them to keep cool, but Coffey goes out to DECK Devlin! Coffey hauls Devlin up, puts him in and throws more hands! Devlin flounders, Coffey gets him up and whips him into a corner. Coffey then scoops for a SIDEWALK SLAM! Cover, TWO! Coffey keeps his cool and brings Devlin back up. Devlin JAWBREAKERS back! Devlin staggers after Coffey and whips him to a corner. Coffey goes up and around and CLOBBERS Devlin again! Devlin staggers to a corner, Coffey runs in but Devlin dodges!

Coffey elbows Devlin away, goes up but Devlin shoves him into the ropes! DRAPING BACKSTABBER! Maybe more like a neck stabber with how it got him high. Devlin stomps Coffey, Coffey throws hands but Devlin hits back. Devlin ROCKS then JABS Coffey! Coffey gets up to elbow but Devlin DECKS him with a haymaker of his own. Devlin stalks Coffey to a corner, then CHOPS him. Coffey flounders, Devlin brings him up and goes to snapmare. Coffey blocks so Devlin knee slow and completes the snapmare to drop the leg, brother! Cover, TWO, but Devlin keeps on him. Devlin sits Coffey up for an elbow to the forehead, and a CHOP in the corner!

Coffey CHOPS back but Devlin KICKS him! Devlin throws forearms, digs his boot in, but lets off as the ref counts. Devlin drags Coffey up but Coffey throws body shots and a low headbutt. Devlin comes back to clinch and turn Coffey for a backslide! Coffey fights with all his strength to get up and spin Devlin. Devlin whips and hits a HIP TOSS! Cover, TWO! Devlin keeps on Coffey with a grounded cobra twist! Coffey endures, even as Devlin digs into his ribs. BT Sports Studio rallies up and Coffey fights. Coffey throws body shots, hands and a hip toss of his own! Devlin stands, ducks the lariat and hits an URENAGE! STANDING MOONSAULT! Devlin mocks the Gallus pose!

But Coffey gets up to throw hands! Coffey BOOTS Devlin to ropes, catches him for an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Devlin gets to a corner, Coffey roars and runs corner to corner to uppercut! GERMAN SUPLEX! Both men are down, BT Sports Studio rallies up, and Coffey grits his teeth. Coffey runs in but Devlin BOOTS him! Devlin runs in but Coffey BACK DROPS! Coffey goes up and up and CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO! Gallus coaches Coffey up but Devlin throws hands. Coffey JABS, Devlin throws a haymaker, and the two brawl to their feet. They trade body shots, but then Coffey POP-UP EUROUPPERS! Coffey runs, spins, but into a SPANISH FLY! Cover, TWO!!

Coffey survives and BT Sports Studio says “This is Awesome!” Devlin grits his teeth, gets Coffey’s arm, but Mark distracts by putting on Devlin’s jacket! Devlin tells Mark to quit it as he goes to Joe. But Wolfgang is helping keep Joe anchored in place! Devlin’s whip snaps back on him, and Coffey hits a GLASGOW SENDOFF! Coffey fires up, runs and ALL THE BEST FOR THE BELLS! Cover, Coffey wins!

Winner: Joe Coffey, by pinfall

A king can win against an Ace when he isn’t alone, and that’s how it was for the Iron King tonight! But will the Gallus boys pay for all their taunting and trolling? Or are they on to bigger and better from here on out?


My Thoughts:

A very good NXT UK, but I feel like the strongest match was the opening tag. Moustache Mountain VS Smith & Carter was great stuff, even with the appearances by Symbiosis and Mastiff-Starz on the side. For a moment, I thought Smith & Carter were going to win because of the distractions and chaos, but I suppose Moustache Mountain needs to stay strong in the tag division. Trent Seven still needs that first UK title and Bate will be joining him on that ride. Mastiff & Starz starting a feud with Symbiosis is a good way of building them up in the tag division, too, and I also like that Nina Samuels debuted her new shtick in the “interview” promo.

Xia VS Dani was a very good match, and Subculture is going to be going strong so Dani winning makes sense. I almost thought we were getting Xia’s Heel turn right here but I suppose this is the slow burn towards that. Jinny calling out Millie sets up a match and that should be another good example of Millie building herself up against those Meiko’s already defeated. And Stevie Turner shows good initiative wanting after Blair Davenport. We all knew Blair wasn’t going to stay “suspended” forever so someone wanting after her is a great way to bring her back. Pretty sure Blair wins that but it’ll be a great showing for Stevie.

The developing feud of Gradwell and Subculture seems to be starting with Andrews, and that makes sense as Gradwell’s been bitter at the “founding fathers” of NXT UK and how he’s been left out of that group. He didn’t win out against Trent Seven but I think it’d be a good move if he won against Andrews. We got a really good and cinematic face-to-face of A-Kid and Dragunov, and I really like this dichotomy of AK’s calculating and technical style against Dragunov’s brutal striking and attacking. That is going to be another classic but I would think Dragunov wins as it’s his first defense.

Dempsey’s debut match was another great example of NXT UK not doing squashes and jobber matches. Morrell gets to show his stuff and it helps bring out more of Dempsey’s moveset. Dempsey is definitely a throwback, but I’m still not sure how well he’s going to do with fans since his vignettes weren’t very thrilling. Maybe Dempsey can thrive in the Heritage Cup Division because of his technical style being modeled after old school wrestlers. We got a good promo vignette from Wolfgang and Dar, I’m still expecting Dar to win out and face Bate, and then the winner of that can worry about Dempsey at some point.

Then we got a very good match out of Coffey and Devlin, but I’m a little disappointed in the finish having Gallus help Coffey. It doesn’t really help Coffey’s power rankings to me if he needs his guys to win. Unless this leads Devlin to getting some kind of back-up. Still hoping my idea of Devlin teaming with Dar, Sha Samuels and Kenny Williams as a faction can happen.

My Score: 8.4/10

Winner: Taiji Ishimori, by pinfall (gains 2 points; Hiromu earns 0)

The Bone Soldier defuses the Timebomb and has a huge win under his belt! Can Hiromu recover and still have a chance at going back-to-back? As for Taiji, he takes a moment to rest before he gets the mic. “Hiromu. You really are something. I hate to admit it, but damn!” Fans applaud this odd showing of respect Taiji is giving as Hiromu takes his leave. Taiji says he can’t go on some “energetic rant like Hiromu,” but he’ll just say, “The NJPW Junior Division isn’t all about El Desperado and Hiromu Takahashi! I said this before, but once again. Look at me! I will show you strength and greatness! It’s Reborn!” Will Taiji prove this division doesn’t belong to anyone but him?

My Thoughts:

A great round for the BOSJ, some real great surprises in the results. I thought for sure Kanemaru would keep going but Taguchi gets a win off him in a real good match. Douki using his pipe to fight off the wrench was great, but I had a feeling Sho would still win. Yoh getting another win is great, I still hope they make a big deal out of Yoh VS Sho when we get it. Bushi VS Phantasmo was good, and I like that ELP was playing it up that he got “it” back in his boot. But I find it interesting that he hesitated to use Sudden Death just to try and use Kenny Omega’s moves. I wonder if that was just to keep ELP from winning and keep him near the bottom.

I wasn’t surprised by Desperado winning, just in how he won. I didn’t think he’d win with just his signature pin, but that was quite the shocker. And then Taiji VS Hiromu was awesome stuff, and I didn’t think Taiji would get the win here. That’s big stuff for Taiji and the tournament. Taiji’s in the top three, he could make a run for the top. Desperado VS Kanemaru is next round, too, that will be a very interesting one.

My Score: 8.9/10
