Last week, Imperium ruined Moustache Mountain’s title match against the Grizzled Young Vets. Tyler was destroyed while Trent Seven was forced to watch.
Ilja Dragunov vs Ashton Smith
Result: Ilja Dragunov wins via pinfall after Torpedo Moskau
Pretty good match. It wasn’t quite a squash, but Dragunov didn’t have a lot of trouble with Smith.
Radzi asks Xia Brookside about what’s on her mind. Xia says she’s looking forward to showing everyone that Jinny is a coward when they face each other in a match next week.
Nina Samuels is at the Download Festival for her fans. Nina walks through the mud and gets annoyed by the fans.
Candy Floss vs Toni Storm (NXT UK Women’s Champ)
(referee: Joel Allen)
Result: Toni Storm wins via pinfall after Storm Zero
This was fun. It started off kind of light, but Floss picked things up partway through the match. Storm matched Floss’s small increase in aggression, but she was still having fun throughout the match.
After the match while Storm celebrates in the ring, Kay Lee Ray attacks Candy Floss on the stage. Storm runs over, but KLR runs away.
Ligero talks about losing a lot of matches recently. He feels like he needs to rediscover himself. There is always hope for change.
Trent Seven heads to the ring. Seven talks about Tyler Bate’s recent injury at the hands of Imperium. Bate can’t be here right now, but Trent Seven is here. NXT UK was built on the backs of British Strong Style, but now Imperium has arrived claiming that the mat is sacred. But it’s British Strong Style’s mat.
Seven intends to cut the head off the snake. By that, Seven means that he’s coming for Walter. Seven will beat Walter for Bate, Dunne, and the Trent Seven army. it’s about more than the title, it’s for “us.”
Mark Andrews has loved wrestling since he was a kid. It upsets Andrews for someone he’s looked up to like Kassius Ohno to say he doesn’t belong in NXT UK. He plans to prove to Ohno that he does belong here.
The Hunt & Dave Mastiff vs Gallus
(referee: Chris Sharpe)
Result: Joe Coffey pins Wild Boar after All the Best for the Bells
Good match. I think the biggest draw in this match was definitely seeing Joe Coffey and Dave Mastiff face off. They did eventually fight each other, but I feel like they were mostly saving themselves for a one on one match. Regardless this was a fun main event.
This was a good show. It wasn’t particularly noteworthy, but it was entertaining.
Match of the Night
The Hunt & Mastiff vs Gallus
This was a fun, slightly chaotic main event.
