Clips of Toni Storm winning the Mae Young Classic at Evolution.
Toni Storm vs Dakota Kai
(referee: Marc Parry)
Result: Toni Storm wins via pinfall after Storm Zero
Very good match. Storm dominated large portions of the match, but Kai kept in the fight with her speed and some well-placed kicks. This was very entertaining.
After the match, Storm and Kai embrace. Kai leaves and heads to the backstage area, but she is attacked from behind by Jinny as she makes it to the stage. Jinny stares at Storm as she says that this is her NXT UK. Jinny walks away while Storm leaves to ring to help Kai to her feet.
Zack Gibson walks down some stairs.
Amir Jordan vs Zack Gibson
(referee: Marc Parry)
Result: Zack Gibson wins via submission with Shankly Gates
Amir Jordan looks fun, but Zack Gibson doesn’t care about fun. This was a mostly dominant performance from Gibson.
After the match, Zack Gibson again says that he will soon be recognized as NXT UK’s number one. The crowd constantly boos Gibson as he goes on and on. Eventually, Trent Seven comes out to the stage to stop Gibson’s monologue.
Seven can’t understand what goes on in Gibson’s Shiny, sweaty head. Where was Gibson when Trent Seven and everyone else were maing history in the first WWE UK tournament? But Gibson did do something in the second tournament; he made everyone take their shoes off.
Seven enters the ring, and he suggests that he and Gibson have a fight. Gibson circles Seven, but Gibson quickly exits the ring. There will be no fight tonight.
Kenny Williams says he’s lucky.
Kenny Williams vs Jordan Devlin
(referee: Chris Sharpe)
Result: Jordan Devlin wins via pinfall after a fireman’s carry spun into a side slam
Good match. They were pretty even at first, but Williams pulled ahead with his speed and a succession of dives. Williams looked good, but one big move from Devlin halted all of his momentum.
Flash Morgan Webster, Mark Andrews, and Ashton Smith prepare for their tag match.
Mark Andrews & Ashton Smith & Flash Morgan Webster vs Wolfgang & Mark Coffey & Joe Coffey
(referee: Darryl Sharma)
Result: Joe Coffey pins Mark Andrews after a running lariat
Good match. This was a fun power versus agility match. Both teams looked good, though Wolfgang and the Coffeys looked more dominant overall. They are susceptible to speed and dive attacks though.
Good show. I think the good matches were spread around a bit more evenly than some of the other UK episodes. I like that they’re starting to build grudges and rivalries as well.
Match of the Night
Six Man Tag
I liked Storm versus Kai as well, but the main event was a lot longer and had a lot more to it.
