Match 1
Joseph Conners vs Dan Maloney
(referee: )

Show/Hide Results

Result: Joseph Conners wins via pinfall after Don’t Look Down
Time: 4:28

Match Thoughts
Pretty good match. This was pretty much an exhibition for Conners, but Maloney did put up an okay fight.


Radzi welcomes Isla Dawn. Isla talks about herself when Rhea Ripley walks up. Rhea tells Isla to watch her match very closely tonight.

Outside the Venue
Earlier today, Moustache Mountain arrived at the venue when Gallus showed up spoiling for a fight. The five men yelled at each other as referees and Sid Scala kept them apart. Johnny Saint told everyone to stand back.


Match 2
Wild Boar Mike Hitchman vs Dave Mastiff
(referee: Chris Sharpe)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Dave Mastiff wins via pinfall after a running cannonball in the corner
Time: 4:10

Match Thoughts
Good match. This was fun. Hitchman had some early offense, but once Mastiff took control it was all over pretty quickly. Mastiff is a lot of fun to watch.


Radzi asks Dave Mastiff how he feels still being undefeated in NXT UK. Mastiff feels great. Eddie Dennis watches from behind.


Match 3
Tyson T-Bone vs Ligero
(referee: Joel Allen)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Ligero wins via pinfall after a springboard diving splash
Time: 6:32

Match Thoughts
Good match. T-Bone threw Ligero around the ring for a while, and that led to a fun come-from-behind victory for the high-flying Ligero. It was simple, but it was entertaining.


A look at Rhea Ripley.

Ring Area
Rhea Ripley heads to the ring. She talks about opportunity. Rhea took her opportunity to become champ, and now she is giving someone else the opportunity of a lifetime. Out comes Candy Floss.


Match 4
Rhea Ripley (NXT UK Women’s Champ) vs Candy Floss
(referee: Eddie Orengo)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Rhea Ripley wins via pinfall after Riptide
Time: 2:48

Match Thoughts
Candy Floss surprised Ripley with a couple of early moves, but otherwise, Ripley used this match to prove her dominance.


Ring Area
After the match, Ripley congratulates Floss for her effort. Then Ripley beats Floss up some more.

Flash Morgan Webster talks to the press when Fabian Aichner walks by. Webster tells Aichner that he’s upset with him for taking liberties with Mark Andrews. Aichner tells Webster to do something about it.

Sid Scala (with Johnny Saint) announces next week’s main event (Trent Seven vs Joe Coffey) and the arrival of the NXT UK Titles.


Match 5
Wolfgang w/ The Coffey Brothers vs Travis Banks
(referee: Chris Sharpe)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Travis Banks wins via pinfall with a lateral press (after a trip by Trent Seven)
Time: 4:16

Match Thoughts
It was short and choatic, but it was good for what it was meant to do. This match was all about building up the feud between Moustache Mountain and Gallus. The Coffey Brothers kept getting involved in the match, and that eventually led to Trent Seven and Tyler Bate running to the ring to help Travis Banks.


Show Impressions
I don’t think the matches on this show were as engaging as a lot of episodes so far, but I still enjoyed the show.

Match of the Night
Tyson T-Bone vs Ligero
I think this was the most fun match for me tonight, though the same case could be made for a few of tonight’s matches.
