Post Match & Comments
I was not expecting this match to be that good!
Both women got about ten minutes to put on what turned out to be a fun match.
Piper keeps getting pushed, and I am guessing with Rhea on NXT, it will be her facing Kay Lee Ray next.
Nevin grabs the mic: “Kay Lee Ray, I am not asking you, I am telling you, I am coming for the NXT Title”
I wrote my paragraph before Piper mentioned it!
Kay Lee Ray now hits the ring and slaps Piper!
This angers Nevin, who hits an exploder suplex on Lee Ray, and it looks like they-
Oh my! Tony Storm is here!
She is attacking Kay Lee Ray, and Piper is just looking on.
For a moment there, it felt like Tony would attack Nevin.
That would have been interesting!
We will see what the return of Storm brings to this feud.

After an eight-month hiatus, Eddie makes his return to NXT UK, he will face Dereiss Gordon.
The match starts and we get an arm-bar exchange, and some back and forth action.
However, after some high flying moves, Dennis catches Gordon and throws him to the outside!
Eddie heads to the outside and lands a huge right hand on Gordon and sends him back inside.
Dennis connects with a huge kick and follows up with the seven-star lariat!
Bridge and the next stop driver, and this one is over!
Post Match & Comments
It was mentioned throughout the match, that Dennis is a Tyler Bate pupil.
Dennis kept mocking him and Bate, a very interesting strategy.
It looks like Eddie is targeting Tyler Bate, and that is a match that I’d like to see.
Two huge returns to NXT UK this week, this is turning into a hot show!

A thunderbolt bomb counter that leads to a two count by Smith.
However, Dar quickly counters with a slap to the head and hits the Nova roller, and this match is over!
Post Match & Comments
Noam Dar is such a great wrestler and very fun to watch.
This was a good short match, with some impressive offense by Smith that I did not expect.
Ashton has a lot of talent, but he seems to always come up short.
I am wondering who Dar’s next real opponent is going to be.

Post Match & Comments
Nobody cares about the referee calling for the bell, everyone is still going at it!
Absolute chaos! Things have broken down and Gallus and Imperium are dismantling each other.
The referee’s come out to try and stop this, and we are shown Joe Coffey jump onto Walter, as NXT UK goes off the air.
What a fun match, so much chaos! Everyone has their own battles to fight:
Joe and Walter, Ilja and Wolfe and the NXT UK tag champs vs Aichner and Barthel.
The match itself was good, lots of back and forth, and a lot of chaos.
The ending was incredible and was expected to happen. Could we get another War Games match?
A Takeover War Games between Gallus and Imperium would be perfect!
This week’s show was very exciting and fun, and it is getting me excited for Takeover.
Next week we have a triple threat between Ligero, Banks, and Connors, plus A-Kid against the Irish Ace. Sounds very promising!
