Match 1
Toni Storm vs Charlie Morgan
(referee: )

Show/Hide Results

Result: Toni Storm wins via pinfall after Storm Zero
Time: 3:47

Match Thoughts
Good match. It was short and practically a squash for Storm, but it was a good match for Storm. I think it was especially good for her after going down with a hurt back in the finals of the women’s title tournament.

A look at Gallus.

 

Match 2
Flash Morgan Webster & Mark Andrews vs James Drake & Zack Gibson
(referee: Joel Allen)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Zack Gibson forces Mark Andrews to submit to Shankly Gates
Time: 8:49

Match Thoughts
Very good match. Both teams looked great in this fast-paced match. After a while it w difficult to pick a winner, but Fabian Aichner came down to the ring and heavily affected the trajectory of the match. I think this was one of the better tag matches leading up to the eventual crowning of NXT UK tag champs.

 

Ring Area
After the match, Mark Andrews and Flash Morgan Webster fight off Fabian Aichner and send him out of the ring.

 

Match 3
Killer Kelly vs Nina Samuels
(referee: Chris Sharpe)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Nina Samuels wins via pinfall after an ushi garoshi
Time: 4:29

Match Thoughts
Pretty good match. Neither of these women have won in NXT UK yet, so it was kind of fun watching a losing streak being broken.

 

Backstage
Radzi welcomes Fabian Aichner. Aichner says he’s going to find a partner to take on Webster and Andrews.

 

Match 4
Joe Coffey vs Travis Banks
(referee: Joel Allen)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Joe Coffey wins via pinfall after a discus lariat
Time: 11:12

Match Thoughts
Very good match. It felt like both men could have used this win, and that made it feel pretty important. Banks was highly aggressive and kept Coffey reeling, but Banks’ shoulder kept being an issue throughout the fight. In the end, Coffey controlled the outcome tonight.

 

Show Impressions
Every match on tonight’s show was fun for different reasons. I particularly enjoyed the tag match and the main event.

Match of the Night
Joe Coffey vs Travis Banks
This felt like a good, hard fought grudge match. I liked it.
