Match 3
Jinny vs Xia Brookside
(referee: Eddie Orengo)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Jinny wins via pinfall after a ripcord rolling kick
Time: 5:13

Match Thoughts
Good match. Xia Brookside put up a better fight than she did in the title tournament. She looked good, but Jinny looked more in-control. Jinny was mean and devious, and that led to a nice finish. This was a solid match that makes me want to see more.

Match 4
Dave Mastiff vs Eddie Dennis
(referee: Chris Sharpe)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Dave Mastiff wins via pinfall after a running cannonball in the corner
Time: 11:46

Match Thoughts
Good match. This was easily Dennis’ best match so far in NXT UK. Dennis tried to overpower and manhandle Mastiff, but that was not a very good game plan. Dennis did get some offense, but Mastiff’s size and strength were too much for Dennis to handle. For Dennis to be successful, he needs to realize that he can’t always rely on his size. I liked the story told here, and I have enjoyed every Mastiff match so far in NXT UK.

 

Show Impressions
Good show. It didn’t have anything particularly high-profile, but it was entertaining nonetheless.

Match of the Night
Dave Mastiff vs Eddie Dennis
This was fun.
