Post Match & Comments
Seven is celebrating with the NXT UK universe on the outside, shaking hands, but Eddie Dennis is in the crowd, and they stare at each other for a bit.
Trent Seven is a fan favorite, and you can tell during his matches.
The NXT UK crowd is always cheering throughout, which makes it even more fun.
I am not a big Kona Reeves fan, but if he stays on NXT UK, it could be an opportunity for him.
A fast fun match to start this week’s episode.

Post Match & Comments
It seems that A-Kid is a very tactical and technical wrestler.
This is his second match on NXT UK and both have been filled with submissions.
It is interesting to see a young wrestler that has that kind of style.
Very fast match, that showed that A-Kid has a bright future in the company.
Jack Starz seems to be having a big losing streak!
The Grizzled Young Veterans are here on NXT
“The only reason we are not NXT UK Tag Team champions is because a bad stipulation was added to our match”
“A stipulation that cost us our titles. Now we are a great tag-team, more capable to bounce back”
“What I want to know is, what are the consequences for the actions made by Imperium and Gallus?”
“We had Andrews and Morgan beat, they interfered, they cost us our match, our number one contendership”
“Takeover Blackpool is right around the corner, and we deserve to get that title opportunity”
“Make the people happy and the world will be talking about us”

Post Match & comments
Holland has the look of a monster, and it’s understandable as he is a former rugby player.
This was a squash match, and he did go at it with power moves.
I was not that impressed, but we know WWE loves their big guys.
Let’s see what else he can do in the ring.
Super fast match that leaves about 20 minutes for our main event!

As NXT UK goes off the air!
NXT UK has been cutting most of their show’s matches short, so they can put on a 15-20 min main event.
I do like that strategy, as the main event usually turns into a good quality match.
This week was no different, as Ilja and Wolfe put on a show! What an awesome match.
Imperium and Gallus facing each other to end the match, just makes this more exciting.
Can this lead us to a War Games match at Takeover Blackpool?
If you didn’t watch the show, go check out this match, it’s worth it!
