The best of wrestling from Europe

NXT UK – 30/01/2020

LOCATION: York, England

COMMENTATORS: Tom Phillips & Aiden English

DANNY BURCH & ONEY LORCAN VS THE HUNT (Primate & Wild Boar)

According to Tom Phillips, Nigel McGuinness is not there because he’s doing a course on how to make homemade Yum Yums, but he will be back in March. Crowd is extremely quiet for this one. They don’t really wake up until Primate gets a hot tag and runs riot. Burch gets the win for his team by DDTing Primate from off of Oney Lorcan’s shoulders.

*1/4**3/4*
  • Toni Storm is asked what went wrong at World’s Collide, and she says that Kay Lee Ray is still in her head and it has to end.
  • Eddie Dennis is very proud of hitting the Seven Bridge on Trent Seven over the top rope to the outside in their last match. He has it replayed over and over until Trent Seven himself comes out. He says the only reason Eddie won at Takeover was because he exposed the steel turnbuckle. Trent wants a rematch, but this time he wants a street fight with all 4 buckles exposed.
  • A-Kid Vs Tyler Bate is very casually made for next week cause A-Kid wants to have great matches like the one Bate had with Jordan Devlin.
  • Aoife Valkyrie arrives in 2 weeks.

NINA SAMUELS VS ISLA DAWN

Isla Dawn wins with a meteora followed by a bridging German half nelson suplex.

  • Ilja Dragunov says that he may have missed against Finn Balor at World’s Collide, but he will not miss when it comes to Joe Coffey.
  • Lorcan and Burch are in NXT UK to test themselves against Gallus.

TYSON T-BONE VS RIDGE HOLLAND

They start with a slugfest, just exchanging strikes back and forth. Holland finally takes control with an overhead belly to belly. Holland wins with Northern Grit which just looks like an elevated side slam.

FLASH MORGAN WEBSTER, MARK ANDREWS & DAVE MASTIFF VS ALEXANDER WOLFE, FABIAN AICHNER & MARCEL BARTEL

Webster and Andrews control the pace of the match with a bunch of flippy shit until Wolfe changes that by hitting a German right on Webster’s neck. Ouch. Imperium take turns getting the heat on Webster. Webster eventually manages to flip out of the corner and make the hot tag to Mastiff, and Mastiff goes to town on Imperium. Morgan and Webster hit dives to the outside which leads to the crowd demanding one from the big man, Mastiff. He goes to the apron and hits a jumping senton from there on all 3 members of Imperium and it brings the crowd to their feet. Mastiff does the Imperium salute. This pisses off and draws out Walter from the back, but Mastiff lays him out with one punch. It does buy time for Aichner to hit a brainbuster on Webster and win the match for Imperium.
