The hottest tag team does it again! They will not be denied, but will the third time be the charm? Or will it be three strikes and they’re out?

 

NXT UK Media catches up with A-Kid.

He just finished a meeting with Sid Scala, and they discussed what Die Familie has been doing in NXT UK. A-Kid got his rematch with Charlie Dempsey, but in rules that are very close to both men’s hearts. In two weeks, that rematch will be under British Round Rules! Will Dempsey put his true heritage above the supposed “family” he has in Teoman and Rohan Raja?

 

NXT UK Media catches up with Emilia McKenzie.

They ask her about Meiko Satomura’s successful title defense against Isla Dawn. What are her thoughts? Millie says Meiko again proved why she’s the standard bearer for the women’s division. But then Lash Legend says this must be about her. Everyone wants to know her thoughts on the NXT UK Women’s Division. Well, Lash thinks- Millie speaks up. Since arriving here, all Lash has done is talk and talk and talk. But no fighting. Hold up, wait a minute. Millie don’t want none. Lash ain’t got time for this. Lash walks off, but will #SuplexMillie throw her back to the States?

 

Ivy Nile VS Nina Samuels!

Diamond Mine’s Female Titan showed just how tough and powerful she is in her own fitness challenge on NXT, and in her undefeated streak. But will that dominance continue across the pond? Or will the Leading Lady of NXT UK steal away the spotlight?

The bell rings and fans sing, “Ivy’s gonna kill~ you!” Nina tells them to shut up and she ties up with Ivy. Ivy powers Nina to ropes, and lets off at 4. Nina scowls while fans applaud. Nina mocks Ivy’s muscles but Ivy shows her just how big those muscles are. They tie up again, Nina pulls hair to put Ivy in the corner, but lets off at 4. Ivy ducks the haymaker to hit a headlock takeover! Nina headscissors but Ivy kips free, only for Nina to headlock and takeover. Ivy gets the headscissors and pushes up to squeeze Nina! Nina endures as Ivy does push-ups! Ivy then throws Nina over, pushes up again, and then throws Nina again.

Nina endures as Ivy keeps going with push-ups and headscissor throws! Nina scrambles to the ropebreak! Ivy lets go at 3, Nina gets to the apron and wants Ivy to back off. Ivy rushes in and swings, but into a HOTSHOT with the ponytail! Nina gets in to rain down fists! Nina lets off while fans duel, and Nina shows she can do push-ups. Nina CLUBS Ivy, then ROCKS her with a forearm. Ivy staggers, Nina snapmares to NECK SNAP! Cover, TWO! Nina seethes but she gets a neck wrench. Ivy endures being twisted, and fans rally up. Ivy fights up, but Nina fish hooks to bring her down! Nina makes Ivy smile but the ref counts.

Nina lets off at 4 and then talks trash. Ivy grabs Nina’s hand! Fans rally, Nina clubs but Ivy KICKS and KICKS and ENZIGURIS! Nina staggers but Ivy runs her over! And again! Ivy whips, catches Nina’s crossbody, then FALL AWAY SLAMS! Ivy kips up and fires up, and fans cheer! Ivy runs in to SUPERWOMAN PUNCH! Then around the world for a CALF KICK! Nina falls, Ivy covers, TWO! Ivy grows frustrated while Nina flounders to a corner. Nina drop toeholds Ivy into buckles! Ivy gets up and Nina laughs as she runs back in. Ivy ROCKS Nina, goes up top, but Nina SLAPS her! Fans boo and Ivy is just pissed! Ivy drags Nina into a HANGING DRAGON SLEEPER!

Nina endures, the ref counts, ROLLING DIAMOND CUTTER! Then the DIAMOND DRAGON! Nina taps, Ivy wins!

Winner: Ivy Nile, by submission

Nina cracked under the pressure, and Ivy proves she’s a diamond in the rough! Will Ivy prove herself worthy of gold on both ends of the Atlantic?

 

Damon Kemp speaks.

“Last week, Sha Samuels attacked me from the back, like I was the reason why he ain’t a hit with the ladies. Look, I didn’t come to England to meet the Queen, to drink the tea, or to eat the crumpets. I came here to learn about the nitty gritty British style. And if Sha Samuels thinks he can attack me from the back, he has another thing coming. And I don’t like his odds stacked against me, because Damon Kemp is more dangerous than he’s ever been.” Will the newest Diamond Mine member grind the East End Butcher into ground beef?

 

A different “family” in NXT UK sits down for a meal.

This isn’t Die Familie, it’s the Bombers! Dave Mastiff says that first off, they have to give thanks to “Cousin Tony” for arranging this lovely place. It’s just a table in the back of the warehouse… Mastiff continues to say that family is the most important thing in the world. And while we’re talking family, we must remember those who aren’t with us anymore. Mastiff and Jack Starz pour out one for Big Fat Paulie. Salud. And now, to business. Starz gets on his phone to order something. What they have? Burgers, chicken burgers, steaks, kebabs. Yeah, he’ll have all that. Does Charlie want dessert?

“Charlie” is just a mop with Charlie Dempsey’s face stuck on it. So that’s a no? Okay. Starz tells the delivery man not to ring the doorbell when he gets here. If he does, he will get clipped! Good man. Wise guys. Four in one burgers and no guns. Beautiful. Mastiff wants to know what “Jackie Boy” has in store for Die Familie. Oh, he’ll make them kiss the ring. The ones on his fists. Beautiful. Charlie, tell us that story about beating up those kids. Okay, no matter what, these boys promise to stick together. There is nothing more important than family. Well, then he’s never tried a donut. Nice. Starz asks Mastiff what the eye sees.

No, no, no, do it right, Jack. “D-O-MAN! What does the eye see?” Mastiff looks through the donut and says he sees a pair of plonkers getting one hell of a beating! Right, Charlie? Well look at the state of this. Whose idea was mop Charlie? And all joking aside, who will win that final spot in the NXT UK Tag Team Championship Triple Threat?

 

Kenny Williams watches Tiger Turan highlights.

He doesn’t get why no one else is seeing what he’s seeing. Is he crazy? Is he? “The Masked Bozo” is the one messing with him! Harassing, stalking, whatever you wanna call it, and all costing Kenny his livelihood. Every loss Kenny’s had this year is because of Turan! Kenny will figure out who this really is behind the mask. The coward is messing with the Scum of the Earth. And when Kenny finds out who Turan is, he will rip them limb from limb! “You’ve made the biggest mistake of your life!” But will Kenny Cockroach end up crushed by Tiger Turan before he can see behind those stripes?

 

NXT UK Championship, Loser Leaves NXT UK: Ilja Dragunov VS Jordan Devlin!

Though the Czar won the Empty Arena match, it wasn’t how the Irish Ace wanted it to go. He didn’t want a No Holds Barred match, just a No Live Audience match! But fans, no fans, rules, no rules, there is no going back from this! One man wins and is champion, the other loses his place in the locker room! Will the 200th episode have a happy or tragic ending?

The introductions are made, the title is raised, and we see someone have their last match as an NXT UK superstar!

Devlin and Dragunov stare down as fans rally up. They circle, tie up, and go around. Dragunov shoots in for a takedown, but Devlin gets up. They clinch, Devlin throws knees but Dragunov gets the arm. Dragunov hits a deep arm-drag, then shifts to a headlock. Devlin fights up, puts Dragunov on ropes, and the ref counts. Devlin swings but Dragunov dodges to hit an EXPLODER! Dragunov gets the headlock again but Devlin fights up. Devlin and Dragunov clinch, they go to ropes, and the ref counts. Devlin pulls hair but so does Dragunov! They go around, Devlin fires a forearm but Dragunov hits back!

Fans rally as the shots keep going, and Dragunov gets the edge! Dragunov ROCKS Devlin, but Devlin RAMS Dragunov to a corner! Devlin grinds forearm sin but Dragunov goes up the corner. The ref counts, Devlin rakes eyes behind the ref’s back! Fans boo, Devlin ROCKS Dragunov, then ROCKS him again! Devlin CHOPS Dragunov, climbs up after him, but Dragunov throws elbows! Dragunov CHOPS Devlin, CLUBS him, then CLUBS him again. Devlin stays up on the ropes, throws body shots, but so does Dragunov. Devlin goes for the suplex but Dragunov blocks! Devlin gets Dragunov up, turns him, for a TOP ROPE BRAINBUSTER!!

Dragunov tumbles to the floor, the ref hurries out to check on him, and fans lose their minds! Dragunov sputters but he’s somehow okay to continue. The ring count climbs, Dragunov somehow stands at 5 of 10 but he flops back down. Devlin hurries out because he knows Champion’s Advantage will screw this all up. Devlin puts Dragunov in, then KICKS Dragunov in the back! Dragunov crawls and fans boo but Devlin doesn’t care. Devlin sits Dragunov up to KICK him again! Devlin taunts Dragunov, drags him up, and whips him, only for Dragunov to flop down. The ref checks on Dragunov but he refuses to give up.

Devlin gets Dragunov up for a BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Dragunov clutches his neck and shoulder but he refuses to give up! Devlin throws knees and forearms into Dragunov, then whips. Dragunov reverses to CHOP! Dragunov tries but he can’t suplex Devlin with that bad neck and shoulder! Devlin drops elbows on Dragunov, then drags him back up. Devlin snapmares, runs and drops a leg, brother! Devlin grins as Dragunov sits up. Fans rally and Devlin SLAPS Dragunov. Dragunov throws a forearm, Devlin throws it back, they throw forearms back and forth, but Devlin shots around.

Dragunov elbows out of the waistlock, runs, but Devlin ducks the lariat. Devlin blocks the next, and Dragunov stumbles into ropes and that hurts the neck! Devlin CHOPS Dragunov, but Dragunov shoots around. Devlin switches the waistlock, shoves, but Dragunov tiger feints, into a SPANISH FLY! Devlin takes time to gloat on the corner but fans boo. Devlin paces around as Dragunov drags himself up. Devlin ROCKS Dragunov, CHOPS, and CHOPS again! But Dragunov blocks to SPINNING CHOP! And SPINNING CHOP to the back, then SPINNING CHOP to a leg! Devlin ROCKS Dragunov, then blocks the enziguri!

Dragunov fights the Cloverleaf, and brings Devlin down to SLAP him over and over! Devlin still has a leg but Dragunov uses the other to BOOT! Devlin holds on to HALF CRAB! And he STOMPS Dragunov’s head! Devlin sits deep on the hold! Fans rally, Dragunov endures, and he powers up to fight around! Dragunov BOOTS and BOOTS but Devlin gets both legs! FULL CRAB, but Dragunov powers through to roll Devlin! FALLING FOREARM!! Both men are down but fans are fired up for “NXT! NXT!” and “UK! UK!” Dragunov clamps onto Devlin to throw hammer ‘n’ anvil elbows!! Devlin can barely guard but Dragunov lets off before it’s called off!

Dragunov pushes Devlin around, drags him up, and waistlocks. Devlin switches, Dragunov throws more back elbows, then runs to LARIAT! Devlin wobbles, Dragunov keeps going with lariat after lariat, until he finally CLOBBERS Devlin! Dragunov wants the waistlock but Devlin switches, and BLINDSIDE HEADBUTTS! Dragunov staggers, but he uses that momentum to tiger feint! CONSTANTINE SPECIAL!! Both men are down and fans are loving this! Dragunov and Devlin stir, Dragunov is up first and he waistlocks! Dragunov hauls Devlin up but Devlin throws elbows. Dragunov still GERMAN SUPLEXES!

Fans want that “One More Time!” and Dragunov certainly wants to as he keeps the waistlock. But Devlin throws back elbows again. So Dragunov BLINDSIDE ENZIGURIS! Then SNAP GERMAN as Devlin rebounds off ropes! Dragunov holds on to the waistlock again, and he drags Devlin back up. Fans rally, Devlin pulls hair and throws down elbows! Devlin gets loose but Dragunov GOTCH LIFTS! Devlin can’t get free, GOTCH GERMAN SUPLEX! Both men are down from that rough landing! Fans chant for “UNBESIEGBAR!” as Dragunov drags himself to the corner. Dragunov is on the apron, and he goes up the corner!

Devlin hurries to hit ropes and trip Dragunov up! Devlin then DECKS Dragunov to the floor again! Dragunov is up fast this time, though, as Devlin aims from the apron. BLINDSIDE PENALTY KICK! And then an ASAI MOONSAULT!! Fans are thunderous for “NXT! NXT!” as the ring count climbs! Devlin gets Dragunov up and in quickly, then aims. Dragunov manages to stand, Devlin turns him, SLINGSHOT NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Devlin is frustrated with Dragunov as Dragunov survives and rolls away. Devlin storms over after Dragunov and goes up the corner himself. Dragunov gets up, but Devlin CLUBS him as he climbs!

Devlin CLUBS and CLUBS and CLUBS Dragunov, but still Dragunov joins Devlin at the top! Dragunov gives back forearm after forearm, then hauls Devlin up to SUPERPLEX! Roll through to a FALLING FOREARM!! Cover, TWO!!! Devlin survives but Dragunov is too tired to be upset. Fans rally up again, Devlin and Dragunov go to opposite corners. Dragunov runs in, TORPEDO- NO! Dragunov is sent into buckles! Devlin gets an arm, ripcord, DEVLINSIDE!! But Dragunov grabs for ropes! Devlin gets him away, covers, Dragunov gets his foot on the ropes! The ref doesn’t see it, Devlin wins?!?!

Winner: Jordan Devlin, by pinfall (NEW NXT UK Champion)

The fans boo, this isn’t right! Wait, wait, wait! Here comes Johnny Saint! The NXT UK GM won’t let this happen! We all saw it, so this match has to continue! Devlin doesn’t want this, but it’s Saint’s orders! Fans are thankful to Saint, but Devlin is furious! The bell rings again, Devlin ripcords, but gets a HEADBUTT!! Fans are thunderous for “UNBESIEGBAR!” TORPEDO- DESTROYER?!? Devlin pulls that one outta nowhere, then he hits a SHEER DROP BRAINBUSTER!! Cover, TWO?!!? Fans are electric and Devlin is freaking out! Devlin hurries up top, aims at Dragunov, 450 FLOPS!! BLINDSIDE TORPEDO MOSCOW!!

Dragunov isn’t done there! He ROCKS, CLUBS, KNEES and fires off on Devlin! But he spins into a HEADBUTT! Dragunov rebounds off ropes, into another HEADBUTT! Devlin reels Dragunov in but Dragunov gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX!! And then head-on, TORPEDO MOSCOW!!! Cover, Dragunov wins!!

Winner: Ilja Dragunov, by pinfall (still NXT UK Champion)

The Czar is victorious as justice prevails! The Irish Ace could not stop Dragunov, and now, Devlin must leave NXT UK! Where will we see Devlin next? And who is net to step to the truly #UNBESIEGBAR NXT UK Champion?


My Thoughts:

A great episode for NXT UK, though maybe not quite on the level of the 200th episode’s hype. If they’d gotten multiple title matches on this, then it’d live up to that. But we did get the women’s title last week, we’re getting Eddie Dennis VS Wild Boar in a Dog Collar Match next week, and the tag titles are coming around again so this was certainly a strong recording session for NXT UK. The tag title qualifier was a great opener. The Coffey Brothers losing made sense, but I’d hoped for more dysfunction. Instead, it was Joe’s pride trying to fight on a bad leg that costs them, and Mark seemed very forgiving since Joe is his brother.

Smith & Carter might finally get those tag titles with this being a Triple Threat, but who knows. And we got a great mafia movie parody from Mastiff & Starz. It was very clever to have a mop as Charlie, poking fun at Charlie not having a lot of charisma or energy. A-Kid also gets a British Rounds match with Dempsey, so who knows which way this splits for Die Familie. Maybe we get a Six Man, Die Familie VS A-Kid, Mastiff & Starz? Damon Kemp had a good promo to call out Sha Samuels, that match will be a lot of fun. Ivy Nile VS Nina Samuels was a good match, and of course Ivy won. We got a good promo segment from Millie and Lash, they’ll definitely have a match soon.

I said last week, there’s a good chance the NXT 2.0 transfers will win all their matches, but I feel like Millie should beat Lash to humble Lash and also build Millie towards finally challenging Meiko for the NXT UK Women’s Championship. And we got a very good vignette from Kenny Williams. I hope he’s seeing what I’m seeing, and that Tiger Turan is Amir Jordan in disguise. It’s what makes the most sense. The NXT UK Championship match was awesome stuff as always, and I like that they swerved us. Dragunov “loses” because of a technicality, but then great of Saint to come out and serve justice. Dragunov wins to keep his reign going, and we’re definitely seeing Devlin in NXT USA soon enough.

My Score: 8.7/10

Andrew’s IMPACT Results & Match Ratings: 6.30.2022

The Go Home to Against All Odds with the main event of Battle of the Futures Redux! TNA vibes and hype in the Asylum!

Published

on

Against All Odds is tomorrow, and the one thing IMPACT has excelled with are the quick turnaround angles. Plus we also HOPEFULLY get a real finish to the Battle of the Futures 2022 edition. Frankie Kazarian and Chris Sabin have a main event that could definitely be something special.

Ratings:

  • Fatal 4 Way: Steve Maclin vs Trey Miguel vs Laredo Kid vs Chris Bey: Trey wins via Meteora – ***
  • Rosemary vs Gisele Shaw: Gisele wins via Knee Strike – ** ¼
  • Savannah Evans w/Tasha Steelz vs Jordynne Grace: Jordynne wins via Muscle Buster – **
  • IMPACT Tag Team Championship: The Good Brothers (c) w/James Storm vs Vincent & PCO w/ Honor No More: Karl retains via Roll Up – ** ½
  • Ace Austin w/Chris Bey vs Alex Zayne: Ace wins via The Fold – ** ¾
  • Battle of the Futures Redux: Frankie Kazarian vs Chris Sabin w/Alex Shelley: Sabin wins via Cradle Shock – *****

 

Results:

Fatal 4 Way: Steve Maclin vs Trey Miguel vs Laredo Kid vs Chris Bey

Early on the smaller men gang up on Maclin, which of course is the smart thing to do. Trey and Bey trade a few shots, Laredo tries to interject himself but Maclin comes back in and starts taking over. Wipes out most of the guys then they start trickling in for pinfall saves and each guy chopping at the bigger man. Trey does however go for a John Woo, misses and Tree of Woes himself to set up for Maclin’s Caught in the Crosshairs corner spear.

Action continues to be pretty fluid, Trey takes out Maclin, Bey looks for an Asai Moonsault, but turns it into the 5 Hole Dive that MCMG do when Laredo Kid dives through Bey’s legs. Then Bey hits the Asai Moonsault and Bey brings Laredo into the ring and tries to find a winning angle. Pop Up Cutter from Bey, but Trey saves it. A little back and forth, Trey goes to the top, misses the Meteora, but lands on his feet and manages a Running Meteora for the pinfall victory.

Trey beat Speedball before Slammiversary, so Speedball has some payback in his mind.

Rosemary vs Gisele Shaw

Madison Rayne and Tenille Dashwood are at the commentary desk for this match since Gisele did offer to fill in for an injured Madison for the Knockouts Tag rematch.

Rosemary controls Gisele early and then bends her backwards and bites her forehead. Gisele almost starts taking back over, but then Rosemary gets out of a headlock the Crazzy Steve way. Rosemary takes some control early until Gisele powders and tries to find a way back into the match. Commercial break brings us to Gisele taking Rosemary’s head off with a Lariat.

Now Gisele is in control, throws Rosemary into a corner and starts pandering for a photo op and posturing to The Influence. Gisele strings together a lot of corner attacks, whips her into the corner again and lays her out with a Flying European Uppercut. Gisele tries to hit the knee in the back of the head, but Rosemary moves and starts her comeback. Big Suplex from the corner and Rosemary keeps her down for 2. Rosemary is in control until Gisele hits and Oscutter out of nowhere for 2. Reverse DDT from Rosemary for another near fall and then The Influence is on the move. They ambush Taya, Rosemary tries to go for her Spear anyway and Shaw kills Rosemary with a great Knee Strike. Rosemary is out, Gisele wins.

A small beat down, and then The Influence pause in the ring for a little, before posing with Gisele and seemingly giving their mark of approval on her being in The Influence now.

Savannah Evans w/Tasha Steelz vs Jordynne Grace

Savannah bulldozes Jordynne into the corner, but the power game is pretty even here. Savannah has some height, but Jordynne is quicker. Jordynne manages to turn the tables on Savannah, up and over in the corner and whips her into the ropes while setting up behind her causing Evans to trip and fall. Savannah powders, Jordynne tries to break up the discussion, but after a quick flurry, Savannah hits an Apron Chokeslam and takes over.

After some back and forth, Jordynne takes back over and then Muscle Buster on Savannah Evans and its over!

IMPACT Tag Team Championship: The Good Brothers (c) w/James Storm vs Vincent & PCO w/ Honor No More

Karl and Vincent start things off, and corner to corner we see the Machine Gun in control, but a thumb to the eyes and quick strike give Vincent the chance to tag in PCO. French Canadian Frankenstein starts beating on Karl, throws him into the ropes, Vincent kicks him and it just pisses off Karl. But Karl getting distracted gives PCO the ambush chance and Karl is just getting rocked. Vincent tagged back in, quick strikes including a corner Facewash with the elbow, sliding Flatliner and PCO is back in.

PCO goes Splash into dropping DDT before hitting the middle rope Guillotine Leg Drop. LG has gotten no action while Karl is getting killed. Deanimator set up looks to take out Karl even further, and it hits! Vincent tags in, and finally Anderson Spinebuster gets LG a hot tag. Big Boot takes out PCO on the apron, Superkick and flying Big Man flattens Vincent, tag to Karl, Magic Killer set up…but PCO with the save. Satellite Russian Leg Sweep from Vincent, RedRUM misses and Karl scoops the Small Package for the win.

Immediately Honor No More attacks. Chris Harris slides in and Honor No More choose to jaw and tease him instead of attacking immediately. HEATH’s music hits before they can attack Harris, and he comes loaded with pipes. Harris and Heath lay out Honor No More with pipes, Wake Up Call from Heath, Pump Kick, Gun Stun and then only Taven is left. Last Call Superkick sends Taven to sleep.

Ace Austin w/Chris Bey vs Alex Zayne

Zayne tries to start immediately, but Ace takes a page from the Jay White book and powders right away. Ace stays a step ahead until a nice Flipping Bodyscissors out of the corner keeps Ace rolling and eating some kicks. Ace tries a top corner move and Zayne flips into a Headscissors for the advantage before commercial. Coming back Ace is in control after driving Zayne into the post.

Ace and Zayne trade, we see Zayne finally get the best of the situations. Cinnamon Twist or Crunchwrap Supreme are hinted at, but Ace rolls away. Zayne tries to get Ace in position for his Taco Driver, but Ace has all the answers. Big kicks and strikes, Ace goes for the Outside/In Avalanche Headscissors, but Zayne mostly flips the through it, but eats a Triangle Kick for his attempted counter. The Fold – gets countered with a Sauce Trigger! Ace powders, Moonsauce to take out Bey and Ace, but Bey grabs his foot before he can get back in, Ace keeps the referee distracted…THE FOLD as soon as Zayne is back in the ring and Bullet Club wins!

Battle of the Futures Redux: Frankie Kazarian vs Chris Sabin w/ Alex Shelley

If this is as good as I anticipate…I may forget how to type. So fair warning if I get sucked in, this could be a short review.

We saw both men had a plan, Sabin went after Kaz’s legs early and often, where Kaz focused on the neck. There were great callbacks, classic moments, even the feint with the Flux Capacitor which is how Kaz won the original Battle of the Futures.

This was Brian Hebner’s final match, and hot damn was it a classic. Everything about this was great.

Overall Score: 9/10

Starting out hot with the X Division match, 2 solid Knockouts matches and a main event that could’ve easily been on any PPV over the last 20 years. This set the stage well for tomorrow’s Against All Odds and could’ve been one of the best Go Home episodes from any company in recent memory. Also it was really awesome getting the Raven vignette to hype the Clockwork Orange House of Fun.

My review of Against All Odds will be a little late since I had prior engagements because Fridays aren’t usually PPVs, but I’ll get to it on Saturday. Watch it live yourself, catch the run down Saturday, either way IMPACT is killin it with that TNA vibe. Maybe its time we go back to a certain 3 letters…a 6 sided ring, or hell, just announce Lethal Lockdown. Bring that back from the dead dammit!

NXT UK beware, it’s the return of the heir! The gothic gladiator is back after that freak accident during her NXT UK Women’s Championship match with Meiko Satomura. Will Blair prove that nothing will stop her from taking the throne this time? Or will Angel leave her in a haze in her first match back?

The bell rings and the two circle. Blair and Angel tie up, go around, and Blair puts Angel on the ropes. The ref counts but Blair lets off fast.

NXT UK Media caught up with Sid Scala.

The Assistant General Manager returns to his office, and Kenny Williams is there waiting! Kenny says it’s about time Sid showed up! Kenny’s been working all night, as we can see by the conspiracy web taking over Sid’s office, and Kenny claims he has finally figured it out! Tiger Turan has to be none other than… Sid says Kenny needs to stop, this isn’t why Sid asked to meet with him. This is about next week, a match between Kenny and Tiger Turan! And just as Sid says that, Tiger steps in. Kenny says this is just who he was looking for. But here’s what will happen. Kenny will win, knock Turan out and take off his mask to reveal it’s Amir Jordan!

So right now, Tiger Turan can clean up this mess while Kenny prepares. Is the Scum of the Earth on to something? Is Tiger Turan obsessed with Kenny because it’s Amir Jordan, the man Kenny banished from NXT UK over a year ago? Or is he going to lose this match along with his mind?

 

Noam Dar & Sha Samuels enter the NXT UK Performance Center.

The Scottish Supernova isn’t sure why they’re here, but the East End Bookie/Butcher promises it is for good reason: they’re going to make some big money. Dar then sees the ring and the training session Mark Coffey is helping with. Dar & Sha taunt them and Mark walks over to ask, “What’s wrong? Run out of ways to cheat?” Dar says he never needs to cheat, and certainly not to beat Mark. Dar didn’t need to cheat to beat “Dog Man” Wolfgang, or to beat big brother Joe and run him out of town. Mark points out Dar only won because of his bookie at ringside. Mark guarantees that if Sha isn’t around, Mark wins the cup.

Sha says no way, Dar is the best ever! Mark says they can bet on it. Sha takes that bet! 100 to 1, Dar still beats Mark! Sha puts money on it quite literally, and says the market is open! Everyone else swarms Sha, wanting to put money on this, too! Dar looks worried with just how many want to join in. Are they betting all on Mark? Dar is a bit upset by that, but will he prove Sha right and take everyone, including Coffey, to the cleaners?

 

Emilia McKenzie VS Fallon Henley!

#SuplexMillie is still Meiko Satomura’s protégé, but she might be feeling the pressure as of late. The Final Boss demands the best out of her disciple, but will those expectations be met? Or will the Cowgirl rope herself a big win just like Briggs & Jensen did?

The bell rings and the two tie up. They go around, end up in a deadlock, but Millie shots around to waistlock. Fallon pries at the hold, standing switches, and SLAMS Millie down. Millie slips out to hammerlock and fans rally for Millie as she cranks the hold. Fallon fights to sit up, rolls out and has the wristlock. Millie slips through, wristlocks back, but Fallon pries at the hold. Fallon slips through, hammerlocks Millie now, but Millie works on the hold. Fallon rolls Millie up, TWO! Fans applaud the opening exchange as the two stare down. Fallon and Millie reset, tie up with knuckle locks, and they have a test of strength!

Millie wrenches the wrists, kicks an arm, rolls and trips Fallon to have a standing toehold! Fallon endures, uses her free leg to kick free, but Millie cartwheels through.

Fans fire up as Millie survives! Fallon drags Millie up, fireman’s carries, but Millie slips off and shoves to then LARIAT! And again! Millie shoots around to get Fallon up for a BIG bag suplex! Cover, TWO! Fans rally and Millie snarls as she hauls Fallon up. Fallon fights the German Suplex, pops free to switch, but Millie elbows Fallon.

Winner: Fallon Henley, by pinfall

Millie showed her killer instinct, but maybe she let it get the better of her! Will this be the exact opposite of what Meiko wanted for Millie?

 

NXT UK Media catches up with Oliver Carter.

They ask him if he’s been keeping in contact with Ashton Smith while he’s out with injury. Of course! Oliver has Ashton on speed dial. They are brothers, that’s never gonna change. But then Teoman and his Die Familie “brothers,” Rohan Raja and Charlie Dempsey slither in and say hi to “Oli.” They sit with him and they feel like this is deja vu. Oliver’s alone, no Ashton Smith, no titles. Oliver needs a family to watch out for him. It is a dangerous place out there. Join them! It’s in his best interest. They’ll let him think about it, and take their leave. Is there anything to think about? Or will the Hottest Superstar Under the Sun actually consider their invitation?

 

NXT UK Media catches up with Sarray.

The Warrior of the Sun is about to get in a set of squats as they ask her how she feels after her NXT UK debut. Sarray says it was very good. She got a win over Nina Samuels, and she- “Aww~, look!” Xia and Eliza return to mock Sarray for simply training in the UK PC after her first win. It’s so cute. But has Eliza heard the good news? Sarray’s sticking around for a bit. Oh, is she? But then Meiko and Millie step up to back the bullies down. Eliza tells Sarray that she better just play by their rules, or they’ll be more than happy to teach Sarray a few things.

Meiko tells Eliza that she talks too much. If Eliza & Xia want a match with Meiko and Sarray, then Eliza & Xia will be the ones being taught a lesson. Millie seems a bit surprised Meiko didn’t choose her, while Xia & Eliza storm off, Xia complaining about who is teaching who lessons. But with that, Sarray finishes putting up the weights for Meiko to take a turn. Will Final Boss & Warrior of the Sun prove to the bullies the power of Joshi Strong Style?

 

Wolfgang VS Sha Samuels w/ Noam Dar!

The Last King of Scotland heard the East End Butcher talking some smack like he wouldn’t hear it. But since he did, it’s time for Sha to put his money where his mouth is! Will Wolfgang get a big win and cash in? Or will Sha find another way to weasel out another victory?

The bell rings and the two circle. Sha gets some last minute pointers from Dar. They say they can frustrate Wolfgang and get the edge. But then Dar needs to give Sha another pointer. The ref insists they get this started already, and Wolfgang rushes in. Sha dodges, then dodges again. Sha goes back to Dar for that last pointer but Wolfgang throws Sha out of the corner! Wolfgang fires off haymakers, then an arm-drag! Wolfgang keeps on the arm with a wristlock, then stands Sha up to RAM shoulders. And again! And then a straight arm lever and SLAM! Fans fire up and Wolfgang drags Sha up again to RAM shoulders again.

Wolfgang wrenches, and hits a straight arm suplex! Cover, ONE! Dar is upset but Wolfgang keeps on Sha’s arm. Sha ROCKS Wolfgang with his free arm, then bumps Wolfgang off buckles. Sha bumps Wolfgang off more buckles, then throws heavy back elbows. Sha runs in to SPLASH Wolfgang. Wolfgang shoves Sha away, runs in, but Sha sends Wolfgang into buckles! Fans boo but Dar wants to throw up the X. Sha grabs the bad arm for an ARMBAR DDT! Sha CLUBS the bad arm, uppercuts it, then hip drops on it! Wolfgang clutches that arm, tries to get it working, but Sha drops an elbow on it!

Sha clamps onto the arm, Wolfgang fights the cobra clutch and throws body shots. But Sha wrenches and WRINGS the bad arm! Dar offers a drink but Sha says no, he has to keep working. Sha throws down elbows into the bad arm, then stands on Wolfgang to say, “ON THE MONEY~!” Sha KICKS the bad leg, then shouts out “EAST~!” Sha stomps Wolfgang but fans chant, “You’re a Mug! You’re a Mug!” Dar says yeah, Wolfgang’s the mug! But that’s not who they mean. Sha RAMS Wolfgang into the buckles, stomps away on the bad arm, then runs in to stomp it again! The ref backs Sha off, and Dar SMACKS Wolfgang around with the papers!

Wolfgang gets mad and he CHOPS Sha! And CHOPS again! And counter punches! Wolfgang suplexes Sha, but Sha fights to get to the apron. Sha HOTSHOTS the bad arm! Wolfgang staggers away and Sha gets in to run and LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Wolfgang is still in this, and Dar offers another drink. Sha says no, and he drops elbow after elbow on Wolfgang! Sha then goes up a corner, and leaps for a FLYING ELBOW DROP! Cover, TWO! Wolfgang is still in this and fans rally up. Sha stalks Wolfgang, CLUBS him at the ropes, then pulls on the bad arm.

Sha hauls Wolfgang up, reels him in and whips, but Wolfgang slips off the scoop to POINT-BLANK SPEAR!! But the bad arm holds Wolfgang back from making the cover, and Sha crawls away to his corner. Dar fans Sha, but fans rally for Wolfgang. Wolfgang grabs at Sha on the apron, hauls him up the corner, but Sha throws body shots. Sha HOTSHOTS the bad arm again! Wolfgang is stuck up top and Sha ROCKS him with haymakers! Sha DECKS Wolfgang!

Sha climbs up again, for the FROG SPLASH onto knees! Wolfgang saves himself but both men are down and writhing. Fans rally up again and Wolfgang grits his teeth as he gets back up. Wolfgang rallies on Sha with the one good arm! Wolfgang whips Sha to then back drop him! Fans fire up, Sha gets to a corner and Wolfgang runs in to fire off forearms! Wolfgang howls and runs, to SPLASH again! Dar is up on the apron but Wolfgang BOOTS him down! Fans cheer and Wolfgang SLINGSHOTS to SPEAR!! Cover, Wolfgang wins!!

Winner: Wolfgang, by pinfall

Fans cheer as the Last King of Scotland stands tall! This Gallus Boy is on top, but will Mark Coffey be on top in two weeks after he gets one more shot at Dar and the Heritage Cup?

 

Trent Seven heads to the ring.

And what a strange thing, for all the fans to boo this Founding Father of NXT UK. He gets a mic and “thanks” us all for that reception. Seven heard the chant of “Why, Trent, Why?” Good question! He will use visual aids to explain just exactly why. The tron shows Trent giving Tyler Bate that truly underhanded low blow uppercut. Trent gets teary eyed as he says it is just beautiful. “It’s the best low blow ever. That’s what it is.” Just look at his positioning! A work of art, really. And more importantly, it represents a turning point. “That right there is the most important moment in British Sports.” Fans chant, “No it’s not! No it’s not!”

But he says yes it is, and we all know it is, “because it’s the moment that Trent Seven saved the industry.” Fans boo but Seven asks they listen. It is the truth “because this place was dead! This studio was a ghost town! And now look at you all! Now look at you all back! The largest crowd in NXT UK BT Sports history is here because Trent Seven is on top!” Fans boo more but Seven says, “It’s a fact. This is where I like to be. Right here. Right at the top, right in the middle, the CENTER of attention!” Fans chant, “We Want Tyler!” and Seven is annoyed. “Tyler Bate is done. Now I am the center of attention, and we were the center of attention as British Strong Style! And as Moustache Mountain.”

Seven goes on about how they were touring the world, selling out every arena, and promotors were begging them to even be on the shows. “Please~! We need you~!” Yes, they did. And that is why fans need to understand it isn’t Seven who changed, it’s Tyler who changed. Seven never lost the killer instinct, he never stopped doing what was needed to win, but it was Tyler who lost his nerve. That will to win is gone, because “it’s all that rubbish, sitting in a field, hugging a tree.” But Bate isn’t coming back, and we know he won’t because he won’t fight Seven! Fans chant, “Yes, He Will!” Seven says no, he won’t, because Bate lost his fighting spirit.

“Tyler Bate is the Little Weak Boy. And I am NXT UK! I am this brand! I am NXT! I am British Strong Style! Come here! Come here! I am Moustache Mountain!!” Fans boo as Seven sets down the mic, and Seven says everyone knows he’s telling the truth. Is he telling the truth about the future of NXT UK? Or will Tyler Bate prove Trent Seven is a liar and make a heroic return?

Wait, a fan gets really heated about Seven saying Tyler is weak and afraid. So much so, friends and security are trying to get him to calm down. But the fan jumps the barrier instead! Security rushes in to stop this man from getting closer and Seven says, “We’ve got a live one!” And then he LOW BLOW KICKS the fan!! Referees rush out and say Seven is out of line! Seven says the fan is the one who got up in Seven’s face. Is there nothing Seven won’t do just to make himself feel like the bigger man?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode of NXT UK with some good set-up for the summer episodes. Blair Davenport gets a good return match win, with Angel Hayze still looking very good in the loss. And Blair emphasizing “hope” at the end of her promo has to be her setting up something with Amale before moving on to the title again. Kenny and Sid had a good interaction to set up Kenny VS Tiger Turan. But sadly for me and my theories, if Kenny also thinks Amir Jordan is Tiger Turan, then that must mean it isn’t because they wouldn’t do that. They can’t let Kenny be right about this, right? It’d be pretty wild for Kenny to win and be right about who Tiger Turan is under the mask.

Millie VS Fallon was a very good match, but I feel like they could’ve played up more of Millie struggling to be aggressive before it backfired on her. But Millie losing does help build her story of disappointing Meiko and herself. Millie also had a very good bit of character work showing her surprise and bit of hurt feelings when Meiko chose Sarray to be her tag partner against Xia & Eliza. But that’s still going to be an awesome match with Sarray and Meiko side by side. Meiko & Sarray will surely win and that will surely set up Meiko VS Sarray for an awesome NXT UK Women’s Championship.

We got a decent interaction from Oliver Carter and Die Familie. I would think Carter rejects Die Familie’s invitation, and he could easily team up with other superstars who don’t like Die Familie, like Mastiff & Starz or even A-Kid. And we got a pretty good promo with Sha, Dar and Mark Coffey about how we’re getting that 100 to 1 betting odds Heritage Cup match. If Mark is getting one more shot in what Dar claims should be his “retirement” match, does that mean Mark wins? Someone from Gallus should get something more, and Dar losing will be his own reason for “not retiring.” Plus, if Mark wins, and Joe Coffey comes back, I’d love seeing Mark VS Joe for the cup.

Wolfgang VS Sha was a great main event match, and I figured Wolfgang would win to get Gallus back up. I don’t know what’s next for Wolfgang, but he’s always been a solid character and in-ring worker. And then, we closed with a very good promo from Seven, with him playing off the crowd’s chants and booing very well. That final bit with “the fan” was quite a surprise but it sure adds to Seven’s Heel heat. But obviously, Bate is coming back and he is going to have one hell of a match with Seven. Can’t be sure who wins that, but it’d make a lot of sense if Seven cheated to win, and then somehow, Seven uses that to go after Ilja Dragunov and the UK Championship.

My Score: 8.5/10
