NXT UK TV Taping Night 2
Plymouth, England at Plymouth Pavilions
Report by Dot Net reader Steve Dunne
One interesting thing of note, throughout the night, they referred to Pete Dunne as the NXT UK Champion, rather than the WWE UK Champion. Again, it wasn’t obvious where the episode breaks are for each show.
Dark match: Dan Moloney and Tucker vs Kenny Williams and Amir Jordan. Jordan pinned Tucker for the win.
Triple H made his entrance and introduced NXT UK general manager Johnny Saint, who announced there will be NXT UK Tag Team Titles.
1. “Gallus” Mark Coffey and Wolfgang beat Ashton Smith and Ligero. Coffey pinned Smith.
2. Joseph Conners pinned Jack Starz.
3. Jinny pinned Xia Brookside.
James Drake and Zack Gibson cut an in-ring promo. They want the NXT UK Tag Team Titles.
4. Dave Mastiff pinned Eddie Dennis. Great match.
1. Jordan Devlin pinned “Wild Boar” Mike Hitchman. Devlin cut a promo after the match.
2. Fabian Aichner pinned Eddie Ryan.
3. “Moustache Mountain” Trent Seven and Tyler Bate over Tyson T-Bone and Saxon Huxley. Seven pinned Huxley.
4. NXT UK Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley pinned Isla Dawn to retain the NXT UK Women’s Title.
1. Toni Storm pinned Charlie Morgan.
2. James Drake and Zack Gibson beat Flash Morgan Webster and Mark Andrews. Gibson made Andrews tap out after interference from Fabian Aichner, who started beating down Andrews. Webster made the save and cleared the ring.
3. Nina Samuels pinned Killer Kelly.
4. Joe Coffey pinned Travis Banks. Another great match. Gallus came out afterward. Moustache Mountain made the save and challenged Gallus to a six-man tag match (presumably a dark match).
5. Tyler Bate, Trent Seven, and Travis Banks beat “Gallus” Joe Coffey, Mark Coffey and Wolfgang. Pete Dunne came out after a ref bump. Mustache Mountain had a member of Gallus down, but there was no ref. Shawn Michaels came out wearing a referee shirt and counted the pin. HBK, British Strong Style, and Banks posed together afterwards. All three members of Gallus rushed the ring and each received Sweet Chin Music from HBK, who then left the ring. Pete Dunne made a short speech and then British Strong Style and Banks posed together to end the show.
All in all, an excellent set of shows. It’ll be interesting to see how it comes across on TV. The balcony (where my seats where originally for) was tarped off for both nights of tapings and a large section of the tiered seating was tarped off tonight.
2. Pete Dunne
3. Moustache Mountain
1. Zack Gibson (the man is a heat machine)
2. Joe Coffey
3. Fabian Aichner (after pinning the local boy)
