Intro Video
“Dusted” by Astroid Boys

Match 1
Sid Scala vs Jordan Devlin
(referee: Eddie Orengo)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Jordan Devlin wins via pinfall after a fireman’s carry into a sit-out side slam
Time: 3:16

Match Thoughts
Pretty good match. It was short, but Scala has some nice offense (probably because he was announced as being from Birmingham). Devlin was dominant though, and I’ve been warming up to him more lately.

 

Ring Area
Radzi enters the ring and asks Devlin if we’ve seen “the real Jordan Devlin.” Devlin knows who he is, and he doesn’t care what anyone else thinks. All Devlin sees in the NXT UK locker room are poseurs. Like the guy in a mask and a cape who thinks he’s a luchador even though he’s from Leeds.

A package promo for Tyson T-Bone.

 

Match 2
Kenny Williams & Amir Jordan vs Saxon Huxley & Joseph Conners
(referee: Chris Sharpe)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Joseph Conners pins Kenny Williams after Don’t Look Down (cradle flatliner)
Time: 4:50

Match Thoughts
Good match. I like the team of Jordan and Williams. They’re fun. But Conners looked the most impressive and dominant here.

 

Backstage
Earlier today, Trent Seven said that Zack Gibson is good, but not as good as Trent Seven.

 

Match 3
Tyler Bate vs James Drake
(referee: Eddie Orengo)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Tyler Bate wins via pinfall after the Tyler Driver ’97
Time: 8:33

Match Thoughts
Great match. This was fast-paced and hard-hitting. Both guys looked great, and though Bate was certainly the favorite to win, Drake had a really good showing. This was a lot of fun.

 

Match 4
Ashton Smith vs Wolfgang w/ Coffey Brothers
(referee: Joel Allen)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Wolfgang wins via pinfall after a cross-leg fallaway cutter
Time: 5:32

Match Thoughts
Good match. Smith has some fun, agile moves, but Wolfgang’s own agility and power were the dominant force here tonight. These two men match up well together, and I’d like to see them have another match.

 

Show Impressions
A good show with some good matches. I kind of wish the women’s tournament had at least one match on this episode though. It seemed strange to introduce the title and not see any of the eight women wrestle.

Match of the Night
Tyler Bate vs James Drake
The longest match of the night and the most exciting.
