Post Match & Comments

Before we go off the air, we are shown Ilja and Wolfe talking backstage

Wolfe says Dragunov has to make a decision, either he joins Imperium or he doesn’t

I hope he does, it would make for an interesting development and make that faction even stronger!

Maybe Ilja joins Gallus and we get that 4 on 4.

That was a great way to finish the match

I enjoyed NXT UK this week, but it seems the show lacked a bit of a spark

The main event was worth it and I really hope Devlin can get in the title picture soon
