PIPER NIVEN VS DANI LUNA

This match is like something you’d see on a training show. Lots of slow, mistimed offence with next to no emotion or swagger. Piper wins with a Michinoku Driver.

A-KID VS TYLER BATE

Very World of Sport at the start with British style chain wrestling. A-Kid counters Bate’s standing shooting star into a triangle choke. Bate manages to get out of it and A-Kid hits him with a moonsault on the outside. Bate turns things around and puts A-Kid away with Tyler Driver 98.

  • Joseph Conners issues a challenge to the Big Strong Boy so that he can prove himself against him and be found worthy.

PRETTY DEADLY VS ASHTON SMITH & OLIVER CARTER

Generic tag match with not a lot happening. Oliver Carter wins it with a one winged angel into a neckbreaker across his knee. Pretty Deadly are bad losers and beat them up after the match to get back their heat.

  • Ilja Dragunov beats up a tire with a sledgehammer and says that he is ready for Joe Coffey.
  • Kay Lee Ray is out to brag about her victory over Toni Storm for NXT UK Women’s championship, but Toni Storm isn’t having any of it. She says Kay Lee stole the victory by taking her pin on Piper Niven. So, Kay Lee challenges Toni Storm to an I Quit match. If Toni loses she doesn’t get another title shot while Kay Lee is champion.
  • Aoife Valkyrie arrives next week.

EDDIE DENNIS VS TRENT SEVEN – STEEL CORNER STREET FIGHT

All of the steel buckles have been exposed for this match and the commentators sell it like we are about to watch a Mick Foley Hell in a Cell match or something. Seven hits Dennis with some loud as fuck chops and beats his ass around the ring. Seven DDTs Dennis on the ring steps. They brawl in the crowd, but Dennis takes control and hits Seven with the Seven Bridge onto the steel steps in a crazy bump. Dennis thinks that’s enough and rolls Seven into the ring, but he kicks out. Seven hits a snap dragon out on the floor as they brawl towards the announce table. Dennis wants to hit Seven Bridge through the table, but Seven counters and hits Dennis with a burning hammer through a table. Seven then misses a twisting senton off the barricade and crashes on the floor. They finally get back to the ring and Seven goes nuts whipping Dennis into the exposed buckles. He then hits another burning hammer and gets the win.
