The Hunt vs Tyson T-Bone & Saxon Huxley
(referee: Joel Allen)
Result: Primate pins Saxon Huxley after tandem diving headbutts
This was fun. The Hunt is chaotic, which is to say that their matches are kind of all over the place. They’re fun to watch though. This wasn’t a squash for The Hunt, but it was pretty close.
After the match, The Hunt makes their way up to the stage. As they stand there celebrating, Wolfgang and Mark Coffey run out and attack them. Gallus makes quick work of Wild Boar and Primate.
Kay Lee Ray vs Kasey Owens
Result: Kay Lee Ray wins via pinfall after a Gory bomb
Pretty good match. It was solid, it was just short and one-sided. Owens got a few strikes in, but Kay Lee Ray dominated this match. I’m looking forward to seeing some serious matches for KLR.
A look at Imperium.
Radzi asks Jinny how she and Jazzy Gabert became a team. Jinny saw Jazzy in the crowd at Takeover and knew she either had to fight her or befriend her. Jinny says she’s not just a pretty face. It takes real intelligence to get to the top, and that’s exactly where Jinny is headed. Gabert is going to help her get there.
James Drake and Zack Gibson head to the ring. Gibson says he and Drake were asked not to come out to the ring, but Gibson has something he needs to get off his chest. He is not happy about having to defend the tag titles at an upcoming music festival. The Grizzled Young Vets are the champs, and it’s not good for moral for the champs to be unhappy. Gibson says Johnny Saint needs to fix this.
Fatal Four Way WWE UK Title Number One Contender Match
Joe Coffey w/ Mark Coffey, Wolfgang vs Dave Mastiff vs Jordan Devlin vs Travis Banks
(referee: Darryl Sharma)
Result: Travis Banks pins Jordan Devlin after the Kiwi Crusher
Very good match. The stakes were high, and so was the pace. This was a highly energetic match with all four men throwing themselves into the fight. I don’t think anyone really stood out as being any better than anyone else. Everyone looked great, and I would have been happy with any of them winning tonight.
This show was really all about the main event. The main event delivered a very good match, so I enjoyed this show.
Match of the Night
Fatal Four Way
I’d like to see any of these men get a chance at Walter, and I feel like more of them will before Walter loses the UK Title.
