Sid Scala welcomes everyone to tonight’s episode.


Match 1
Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner vs Tyson T-Bone & Saxon Huxley
(referee: Chris Sharpe)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Marcel Barthel pins Saxon Huxley after a tandem powerbomb (Aichner) and second-rope diving European uppercut (Barthel)
Time: 4:53

Match Thoughts
Good match. Imperium dominated Huxley and T-Bone. Or really, they dominated Huxley and kept T-Bone out of the match. Huxley was isolated for an extended period of time, and the teamwork of Barthel and Aichner prevented T-Bone from being any help to his partner.


Radzi asks Travis Banks how he’s feeling after losing to Walter. Banks says this is just the beginning for the Kiwi Buzzsaw in NXT UK.


Match 2
Xia Brookside vs Jinny w/ Jazzy Gabert
(referee: ?)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Jinny wins via pinfall with a schoolboy
Time: 4:35

Match Thoughts
Pretty good match. I like Jinny and Xia, but this match felt unnecessary. Jinny has already beaten Xia without the help of Jazzy, so I’m not sure what the point of having Jazzy help Jinny get a win tonight was. Regardless, I liked most of the action in the match, even though the finish was a bit odd with how it all came together.


Imperium talks about all the people they’ve beaten so far. Also, Alexander Wolfe accepts Trent Seven’s challenge for the WWE UK Title on Walter’s behalf.

Selfie Promo
Kenny Williams says he’s going to snap off the wing Noam Dar wants to put him under.

Joe Coffey says he wants to fight Dave Mastiff one on one.

Ring Area
Toni Storm heads to the ring. For the longest time, Storm thought Kay Lee Ray was one of her best friends. So what happened to KLR? Storm is sick of Ray’s mind games. As Storm speaks, Ray interrupts and comes out to the stage.

Kay Lee Ray suggests that they might have their title match right now. Storm is ready… but Ray doesn’t want to compete. Ray would rather take Storm’s title at Takeover: Cardiff at the end of August. Until then, Ray plans to make Storm’s life a “living hell.”

Sid Scala announces that next week, there will be a six woman tag team match with Storm and Kay Lee Ray on opposing teams.


Match 3
Kassius Ohno vs Mark Andrews
(referee: Joel Allen)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Mark Andrews wins via pinfall with a victory roll
Time: 13:06

Match Thoughts
Good match. Ohno tried to keep Andrews close by tying him up in various holds and submissions, but Andrews repeatedly got away and attacked with dives and strikes. This was a fun matchup of styles.


Show Impressions
Nothing felt particularly important on this show, but it was entertaining.

Match of the Night
Kassius Ohno vs Mark Andrews
This was fun.
