Noam Dar VS Ilja Dragunov!

The Scottish Supernova loves pushing people’s buttons, but he may have pushed the wrong Moscow Madman! But at the same time, Dragunov wants to prove to Dar, the fans, and most of all himself that he is in control now. Will UNBESIEGBAR keep from going berserk here tonight?

The bell rings and Dar circles with Dragunov. Dar gives testing kicks, they tie up and Dragunov gets a leg. Dar shifts to a facelock, cover, ONE and the two reset. Dragunov gets a leg and trips Dar to go for a Crab. Dar hooks Dragunov’s leg to drag him down for a standing toehold. Dragunov BOOTS Dar off the hold and BT Sports Studio cheers the exchange. They go again, Dar clinches but Dragunov powers Dar to ropes. Dar shouts, the ref counts, Dragunov lets off the hold but Dar dodges his clothesline. Dar gets cocky but Dragunov gets him down!

Winner: Ilja Dragunov, by pinfall

This wasn’t just a match, this was a FIGHT! A fight for pride and superiority, and it was the Moscow Madman that won it! He shouts at Dar that NO ONE defines Dragunov’s reality but Dragunov! Will Dragunov make his dream of being champion reality now that the Summer heat is coming?

 

Aoife Valkyrie speaks.

“In this world, if you don’t risk, you cannot win. How can you break through your limits if you don’t know what they are to begin with?” She has always pushed herself every day to feel the same pain she felt when she tasted failure. Only the bird who dares to fall learns to fly. She’s come face to face with defeat, and it fuels her. She will return, “reforged, remade and ready for what’s next.” Will the battle-tested Valkyrie finally conquer NXT UK?

 

NXT UK Media catches up with Sid Scala.

The Assistant GM is very excited to welcome the Irish Ace, Jordan Devlin, back to the BT Sports Studio. Devlin is sure he’s very happy but did he get the email? The list of demands of what Devlin wants now that he’s back. If Sid didn’t see it, he’ll tell him here now: Devlin wants a dressing room all to himself every night; that brand new Mustang needs to be on NXT UK Travel’s list; and he wants a spot on the next Supernova Sessions. He has a lot to get off his chest. Of course, Sid will talk with Johnny Saint. But let’s get into the Performance Center, everyone’s really excited to welcome him back.

The PC is for people who need to train. Devlin is the Irish Ace, the Finished Product, he doesn’t need to train. See you next week. Devlin leaves again, and Sid awkwardly says it’s always great to see Devlin… Will Devlin get what he wants? Or will he have to wait in line like everyone else?

 

NXT UK Tag Team Championships: Pretty Deadly VS Jack Starz & ???

Sam Stoker & Lewis Howley poked fun at Jack Starz, and told him to find a friend to go after the titles win. So assuming Starz even has a partner tonight, will Pretty Deadly end up on the losing end of an upset? Or does it even matter who Starz found?

Wait, Starz got NATHAN FRAZER to be his tag partner?! The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see if the British Prodigy can help Starz reach for the stars and take those titles on their first try!

Starz and Stoker start and tie up. They go around, Stoker uses leverage to put Starz in a corner but Starz gets away. They reset, tie up again, and Stoker puts Starz on ropes. Stoker lets off but then whips Starz, and runs him over with a big shoulder! Howley says, “Yes Boy~!” and Stoker tells Starz to step up. Starz gets up, Howley talks trash and Stoker gets him for a headlock takeover! Stoker grinds Starz but Starz fights up and powers out. Starz speeds things up and dropkicks Stoker down! Then arm-drags him to a cording hold! Stoker gets up, Starz wrenches but Stoker wrenches and knees low! Tag to Howley and Pretty Deadly combine for a leap frog elbow drop!

Howley taunts Starz with another “Yes Boy~!” and even some Scott Hall fingers. Howley drags Starz up, rocks him and whips him hard into a corner! Starz bounces off buckles, Howley gets him up to ROCK him with a haymaker. Howley throws more hands but Starz counter punches! Starz gets Howley’s arms for a backslide! TWO, Starz leaps over Howley to tag in Frazer! Frazer runs and rams Howley again and again! Howley pups Frazer up but Frazer RANAS him away! Frazer arm-drags Howley to an armlock of his own and grinds Howley down. Howley gets up, Frazer wrenches and elbow breakers. Howley works on the hold, wrings Frazer but Frazer handsprings to arm-drag!

Frazer has the armlock again, but Howley fights up and around. Howley powers Frazer to a corner, whips him corner to corner, but Frazer goes up and over and handsprings around, only for Howley to kick low! Howley headlocks, Stoker tags in as Frazer powers out. Frazer dropkicks Howley down but Stoker waistlocks. Frazer fights the lift, slips under and back suplexes Stoker down! Stoker gets to ropes, Frazer runs in and CHOPS him! Frazer whips, Stoker reverses but Frazer goes up and over and fires off more CHOPS! Stoker stumbles into the ref, but that’s on purpose so the ref misses Howley pull the ropes! Frazer takes a tumble, the ref senses something is off and reprimands.

Tag to Howley, he gets Frazer up to bump him off apron and put him in the ring. Howley drags Frazer to a cover, ONE! Howley gets Frazer up, throws EuroUppers and tags Stoker back in. Pretty Deadly mugs Frazer in their corner, but Frazer fights back! Stoker DECKS Frazer, get shim up but Frazer powers out. Stoker blocks a superkick but gets the DRAGON WHIP! Hot tag to Howley and he goes after Frazer. He TOSSES Frazer way out, then waits for him to return. Frazer ducks the haymaker, shoulders into Howley, then slingshots up to sunset flip! Howley stays up, tags Stoker, but misses his fist drop! Hot tag to Starz!

Starz rallies on Pretty Deadly with big haymakers and shoulder tackles! Starz CLOBBERS Stoker, mocks Pretty Deadly and hits a BIG back drop! Starz goes corner to corner to uppercut, and HALF HATCH SUPLEX! Starz is red hot as he gets Stoker up to a fireman’s carry! Stoker elbows free, reels Starz in, GUILLOTINE! But Starz powers out?! To a BRAINBUSTER! But Howley returns, only for Frazer to return the favor! Howley takes a tumble, Frazer lines up the shot, MOONSAULT off the apron! Starz scoops Stoker for an EXPLODER! Cover, TWO!! Stoker survives and Starz is shocked but the BT Sports Studio audience is loving this!

Starz gets Stoker up but Stoker JAWBREAKERS back! Howley and Frazer scrap, Stoker BOOTS Frazer down! Stoker goes back to Starz but Starz elbows him away! Howley tags in and hides, Starz get Stoker up but Howley knees Starz’s leg! Starz falls from a charlie horse, Stoker tags back in! Pretty Deadly gets Starz up, SPILT MILK!! Cover, Pretty Deadly win!

Winners: Pretty Deadly, by pinfall (still NXT UK Tag Team Champions)

Despite the big fight Starz and Frazer put up, they couldn’t outdo the tag team tactics this dastardly duo used! Will it be a Pretty Boy Summer in the NXT UK Tag Division?

 

Tyler Bate speaks.

“The mind is like water: when it’s turbulent, it’s difficult to see; when it’s calm, everything becomes clear.” Bate lets go of what he is to become what he might be. Bate trains with a blindfold, trusting his body to know where the nun-chucks he’s using are. Being Heritage Cup Champion, Bate is now open to all challengers, but attached to no result. He enjoys the process of becoming. He is Heritage Cup Champion, he is Tyler Bate, and he simply is. But who will cross paths with the Big Strong Boy and try to take the cup from him?

 

Flash Morgan Webster VS Joseph Conners w/ Jinny!

The Modfather stepped up to back Dani Luna up against the Spoiled Princess and her Righteous Knight. But while Joseph ‘n’ Jinny keep talking down to people, #Subculture wants to lift us up! Will FMW rise up and prove Conners is NOT worthy of talking such trash?

The bell rings, Conners and FMW circle and tie up. FMW wrenches, wristlocks, but Conners spins through and breaks free to cravat and snapmare. Conners holds the cravat for a neck wrench but FMW is right out and he wrings Conners’ arm out! Conners gets up and gets away to stand off with FMW and the fans cheer. Conners and FMW knuckle lock, Conners breaks to wrench and wrangle FMW to the mat. Conners has a standing toehold, FMW spins through and throws Conners off.

FMW whips corner to corner, Conners reverses and catches FMW to SLAM him on the mat! Conners throws clubbing hands, and while he dribbles FMW, he’s shouting, “Never! Ever! Do! That! To! ME!” Cover, TWO! Jinny is still calm as Conners gets FMW up to wrench, kick and clamp onto the arm. Conners chinbars to grind and twist FMW, but FMW endures. Conners gator rolls to a cover, TWO!

Winner: Joseph Conners, by pinfall

But Subculture rushes back out because they’re furious! They saw as we saw that Jinny was Conners’ insurance policy! Jinny shouts at them, “What’re you gonna do about it?!” What will Subculture do to knock Jinny off her high horse?

 

NXT UK hears from Walter.

“I am the longest-reigning NXT UK Champion in history.” He has dominated since day one of arriving here, and vows that this will never change. But he will return in person next week! What will the Ring General have to say to the NXT UK roster and fans about the future of this title?

 

Joe Coffey VS Rampage Brown!

The first time around, the battle was brutal and did NOT go the Iron King’s way. But Gallus Boys never back down from a fight, and it was Coffey who invited Rampage to a rematch. After waiting and resting up, both men are ready for round two! Will Coffey get on the board? Or will it be a 2-0 sweep for big bad Rampage Brown?

The bell rings and the two circle. They approach, tie up, and go around before they break. They go again, break again, and try a third time. Coffey gets Rampage on ropes but the ref counts.

Coffey throws another hard body shot, then gets Rampage up for a FLAPJACK HOTSHOT! Rampage tumbles out and down to the floor! The ring count starts, Coffey watches as Rampage slowly rises, and dares him to come back! Coffey builds speed and WRECKS Rampage with a dropkick! Coffey kicks away at the barriers! The ref reprimands, counts, and Coffey puts Rampage in at 3 of 10 again. Coffey shoves Rampage to ropes to CLUB him in the back!

They go forearm and jab back and forth, Rampage gets the edge but again Coffey headbutts ribs! Coffey falls back to the corner and Rampage storms in, but into a boot to the ribs! Coffey goes up and up and CROSSBODIES but FLOPS as Rampage dodges! Rampage catches his breath while Coffey clutches a leg. Rampage runs in but Coffey manages to dodge, to CROSSBODY both men out to the floor! Coffey and Rampage stir as a ring count begins again. Coffey gets up, hobbles around, but Rampage crawls.

Winner: Joe Coffey, by pinfall

The series in NXT UK is now 1-1! Coffey avenges his loss to Rampage, but now we’ll need a tiebreaker! The two show respect with a solid handshake, but they want another go just like we do! When and where will these two collide for a rowdy round three?

Wait, Ilja Dragunov is returning? He looks at both burly behemoths who just beat each other pillar to post. Does the Moscow Madman want to make this an even more massive showdown? And how will all of this factor into the NXT UK Championship contender’s race?


My Thoughts:

This was a great episode for NXT UK from top to bottom! It opened with physicality, it closed with physicality, and honestly even the matches in the middle were better than expected. Dar VS Dragunov was awesome, almost TakeOver worthy. To be fair, if TakeOver: Dublin was still on track, I feel like this could’ve been there as a red hot opener to get fans going. We got another solid promo from Aoife, I suspect that she’ll finally get going over the summer to be ready for a big title match at a year end special episode or even TakeOver, should the UK be open enough for one. KLR VS Meiko is next week so this is the moment of truth for how the Women’s Division will go.

Devlin’s return promo was alright, but it does fit that he wants to be treated as the VIP of NXT UK. I am curious as to what promo he’ll give on Supernova Sessions, since he’s apparently had to put his Cruiserweight Championship comeback on the back, back burner. Tyler Bate’s promo was good, and it is interesting how he’s going from Big Strong Boy to Big Strong Sage. Devlin could make for a great Heritage Cup challenger, and the combination of Devlin and Bate hasn’t been seen much, so maybe NXT UK sets up big things for that. Walter will finally return and he’ll de0finitely get the ball rolling on his next challenger, too.

The UK Tag title match of Pretty Deadly VS Starz & Frazer turned out way better than I expected. I knew Pretty Deadly was still winning, though, but I also kinda felt Frazer was next for a tag division move. If he isn’t going to be Cruiserweight Champion with the title over in Florida, and isn’t quite ready for either of the other titles just yet, trying for the tag titles might be good for him and Starz. If anything, Starz can return the favor, they have a tag match with Dar and Sha to settle that story for Frazer. Then they can try for the tag titles again, give us an even greater match, and win or lose, we have our next feud set up. If Starz & Frazer win, Pretty Deadly goes for a rematch. If Starz & Frazer lose, maybe Starz turns Heel and they feud.

Conners VS Webster was a really good match but of course Jinny helps Conners win. Luna and Andrews could’ve gotten out there sooner, but that’s small details. Subculture might put up Luna and Andrews in a Mixed Tag against Jinny & Joseph now, and that could go either way. I wonder what the chances of Jinny recruiting another male superstar to her stable so that they’re a trio to parallel Subculture. Maybe one of the jobbers, who have honestly been great in the ring, gets a “makeover” the same as Conners got. That gives a lot of choices, like “Turbo Terry” Josh Morrell, who can definitely keep up with Andrews and Webster in the speed game.

The Coffey VS Rampage rematch was a great main even to finish the physicality sandwich. These guys went as hard, maybe a little harder even, than last time, and there was great story in how both man had a target to go after. In the end, it made all the sense in the world for Coffey to win and tie this up, forcing a tiebreaker down the line. The surprise was Dragunov showing up to stare them both down. With Triple Threats being the new thing in Western wrestling companies, from WWE doing it at WrestleMania 37 AND #WrestleManiaBacklash, AEW at Double or Nothing then NXT USA last night, NXT UK might set up at least a Triple Threat #1 Contender’s match, to perhaps go in line with Walter’s return next week.

Dragunov being added to Coffey VS Rampage would of course put that thing in a TakeOver level, and with each man having had their shot at Walter and the UK Championship, it’d be anyone’s guess as to who wins it, since each man has faced Walter once already. Now, Coffey VS Rampage Round 3 would preclude that they don’t win the Triple Threat, but it still feels a title match too early for Walter VS Dragunov Round 2. Dragunov could win and “shockingly” end Walter’s historically long reign, and then Walter joins the rest of Imperium in NXT USA to start taking over those divisions. Walter being first man to be UK Champion then North American or top NXT Champion would definitely be worthy of Walter’s resumé.

My Score: 8.6/10

Malakai Black & Brody King VS The Premier Athletes w/ Mark Sterling & Josh Woods!

The Kings of the Black Throne claim they’re not enraged over Buddy Matthews being attacked, and yet they’re on a Rampage! Well, bad puns aside, will they unstoppable from now until they have avenged their Aussie Juggernaut? Or will Tony Nese & Ariya Daivari make everyone take them serious from now on?

The teams sort out and the fans hoot and bark. Malakai starts against Daivari and the two circle. The fans rally up, the two feel things out, then tie up.

Brody fires forearms and CHOPS, then whips corner to corner. Nese rebounds, into a BIG back drop! Nese staggers up, into a scoop and SLAM! Brody runs to SENTON! Cover, TWO!

Nese puts Brody in the ring, tags Daivari, and they mug Brody more, They both run, to DOUBLE SHOULDER Brody down! Cover, TWO!

Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Ben Bishop!

The Savior of the Backbreaker is set for an ROH World Championship #1 contender’s match tomorrow night on Collision against Dalton Castle. But in an occasion of turnabout is fair play, The Conglomeration is watching him from commentary! Will the presence of Kyle O’Reilly, Orange Cassidy & Mark Briscoe make Roddy better or worse than usual?

The bell rings and Kyle says that while he loves and appreciates Roddy, Taven & Bennett, they’re being more like the Undisputed Cling-dom!

The Conglomeration is in agreement, that was impressive work by Roddy, because Roddy is indeed that good. But Cassidy says it is time to go stare down with them. The Conglomeration stand on stage to stare down The Kingdom, but Roddy needs to focus on tomorrow night. Will Roddy punch his golden ticket to an ROH World Championship match? Or will it be The Peacock that means the Sussex County Chicken in Arlington, Texas?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

The Virtuosa is served a glass of wine, and says we’ve never been formally introduced. We’ve all seen what she can do in the ring, but does anyone know what it means to be THE Virtuosa. “Wrestling isn’t just a sport or an art form, it’s both. And more set to a quickening pace than a staccato beat of bodies slamming, bones cracking, tendons tearing! All building towards a beautiful and violent crescendo.” Deonna likes what AEW has forced her to become. “Because here, actions have consequences.” And Deonna vows to burn the empire to the ground, to remake it in her own image. This is the Age of the Virtuosa.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Renee Paquette caught up with Chris Jericho, “Big Bill” Morrissey & Bryan Keith, and asks what the hell. Yes, she’s seen The Learning Tree do “a ton of horrible other things” throughout his career, but tonight with Samoa Joe crossed a line. What was he thinking? Jericho smiles, the leather belt gifted to him by Martha Hart still wrapped around his hand. He waves to the camera and says, “Hi, guys. And Renee, I don’t know why you’re so surprised. This is exactly what I’ve been saying for a long, long time. If you’ve listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. Look at The Redwood and Bad Apple.

“But if you don’t listen to The Learning Tree, bad things happen. Shibata had a chance, now his arm is hurt. Hook had a chance, we had to burn his face off with a fireball. And Samoa Joke, for years, I’ve been telling you to listen to The Learning Tree, you didn’t, we ran you through a wall, and now you’re in the hospital.” Bill is stifling a laugh this entire time. Jericho says if Joe needs something to help with his inflamed muscles he might have, try ginger and black pepper. It’s really good for you. See, Renee? Lots of lessons to be learned. And even more will be learned on Dynamite 250, with a special edition of TV Time with Chris Jericho. Thanks, guys~…!

Jericho leaves, and Bill says one of the biggest lessons that Jericho has taught them is that the more TV Time, the better. And they want as much TV Time as possible! Because The Learning Tree, The Bad Apple and The Redwood are always maximizing their minutes. She should try it some time. Keith says if you don’t respect Chris Jericho, they will MAKE you respect Chris Jericho. Will everyone in AEW learn the hard way that Jericho isn’t kidding around?

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

That could’ve been a win by knockout with that killer haymaker! But will Shane Taylor Promotions continue to rampage until they prove they prove they’re the elite of All Elite Wrestling?


My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage, and while they shoved five matches onto this card again, they at least did their best to put story behind most of these. Roderick Strong was of course beating Ben Bishop, but they gave us a storyline plug by having The Conglomeration on commentary. And while Thunder Rosa was of course beating Rachael Ellering, they gave us story build with Deonna attacking them both. I feel like this will give us Deonna VS Ellering next, to stretch things out so that the true blowoff of Deonna VS Rosa isn’t until All In, probably in the All In Zero Hour. For that matter, that’s probably where Conglomeration VS Undisputed Kingdom 3v3 happens, too.

I’m a bit torn on the promo from Learning Tree Jericho and crew. The positive is that it was really good. I said for Dynamite that I like how the payoff is Jericho’s gone from condescending to sinister, and even Big Bill is getting into this crazy persona. The negative for me is that they kinda shoved this in here. I know we DO need to hear Jericho’s explanation, but if it was “after Dynamite,” then find a way to make it part of Dynamite. Or just leave it for Saturday Night Collision so that you aren’t already stuffing a one hour program full to the brim.

Great opening tag from House of Black VS Premier Athletes with Sterling & Woods of course getting involved, but great win for Malakai & Brody in that 4v2 situation. Still banking on them screwing over The Patriarchy during a Unified World Trios Championship match. The Six Man Tag was really good but not sure it was main event material compared to the Fatal 4 Way. Good stuff for the Six Man Tag, everyone got their shine, but that Fatal 4 Way was just incredible. Great win for Fenix to stay hot while all the titles have stories going into All In, but he could get a shot at like, Okada’s Continental Championship to give us a dream match moment before the PPV.

My Score: 8.8/10
