Match 1
NXT UK Women’s Title Tournament Semi-Final Match
Dakota Kai vs Rhea Ripley
(referee: Eddie Orengo)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Rhea Ripley wins via pinfall after Riptide
Time: 9:51

Match Thoughts
Very good match. Dakota Kai had kicks. So many kicks. It was great. Ripley used her size and strength to be dominant in parts of the match, but she absorbed a lot of punishment. Ripley would get a move or a hold here and there, but Kai’s speed and strikes pushed Ripley to her limit. Either woman could have believably won this match, and it was close right up until the end. I really enjoyed this match.

 

Backstage
Sid Scala tells Radzi that Johnny Saint has given him an opportunity to face Joe Coffey in two weeks. Radzi wonders if that’s a good idea, but Scala seems cautiously confident.

Backstage
Radzi is joined by Jordan Devlin. Devlin tells Radzi that by defeating Ligero, he has cemented himself as the number one contender for the WWE UK Title. Devlin says that when he becomes champ, he’s going to rename NXT UK. It will be “NXT Ireland (featuring the UK).”

 

Match 2
Flash Morgan Webster & Mark Andrews vs Saxon Huxley & Joseph Conners
(referee: Joel Allen)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Mark Andrews pins Saxon Huxley after a shooting star press
Time: 6:09

Match Thoughts
Good match. Webster and Andrews are fast and fun to watch. I think they might have an uphill battle in the tag division because I see them having a lot of underdog style matches, but that’s part of the fun with them. Huxley and Conners might be a pretty good team, but with Huxley refusing to tag Conners late in the match, it seems like their time as a duo is limited.

 

Ring Area
After the match, Conners attacks Huxley. After some punches, Conners hits Huxley with Don’t Look Down.

 

Match 3
Dave Mastiff vs Tyson T-Bone
(referee: Chris Sharpe)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Dave Mastiff wins via pinfall after a running cannonball in the corner
Time: 4:40

Match Thoughts
Good match. This was all about Tyson T-Bone trying to beat Mastiff down, but Mastiff absorbing the punishment and dishing out some punishment of his own when he could. It was fun. Kind of short, but fun.

 

Match 4
NXT UK Women’s Title Tournament Semi-Final Match
Jinny vs Toni Storm
(referee: Joel Allen)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Toni Storm wins via pinfall after Storm Zero
Time: 10:30

Match Thoughts
Very good match. This was another good chapter in the rivalry between Jinny and Toni Storm, and it was a great way to end the semi-finals of the tournament. This was a good back-and-forth match with a lot of strong moves by both women.

 

Ring Area
After the match, Johnny Saint congratulates the two women headed to the finals of the NXT UK Women’s Title Tournament.

 

Show Impressions
A very good show. The women’s matches delivered like I hoped they would, and the other two matches on the show were fun.

Match of the Night
Jinny vs Toni Storm
I hope they wrestle each other a lot in NXT UK.
