TYSON T-BONE vs. TRAVIS BANKS- 4/10
They had an intense match. Banks got his initial offense in, then got tossed around for a bit until winning via flash pin.
RADZIE INTERVIEWS GALLUS- fine
This was originally intended to be Radzie updating us on Toni Storm. That update was that, for the second straight week, no one can find her. Gallus (just Mark Coffey & Wolfgang) showed up and made the point that they weren’t the ones who got pinned in the tag title match at TakeOver: Cardiff.
RHEA RIPLEY vs. DEBBIE KEITEL- squash
A disappointing use of Debbie Keitel.
POST-MATCH SEGMENT- GREAT!
Rhea wants her title back and explains why she thinks no one can stop her. She was interrupted by Jinny, turning her babyface (the fans were already reacting to her as one). Jinny says that Rhea belongs in the past and that she, Jinny is the present and future. Jinny sends Alpha Female at Rhea but Rhea knocks her off the apron. Jazzy wants to go back and fight but Jinny won’t let her.
NOAM DAR ANNOYS TRENT SEVEN WHEN HE SHOWS UP AT THE BUILDING- good
This is how you have a backstage confrontation without actually hitting each other and also making it believable.
JOSEPH CONNERS vs. KENNY WILLIAMS- 4/10
Conners FINALLY picks up a win.
ILJA VS. CESARO VIDEO PACKAGE- Cesaro put Ilja over verbally, which is what was needed.
OLIVER CARTER PROMO- fine
He’s in action next week and will try to pick up his first win.
KAY LEE RAY PROMO- She accepts Tegan Nox’s challenge because she thinks she can beat her easily due to her bad knees. Johnny Saint has signed the match for two weeks from now.
BRITISH ROUNDS MATCH: Kassius Ohno vs. Sid Scala- 6/10
The wrestlers have six three-minute rounds to pick two up two falls, two submissions, or a knockout. So these guys have just three minute intervals to do TWICE what often takes at least eight uninterrupted minutes in a regular match to do once?
They did a good job with their cocky heel Ohno story, but I found that the rounds interrupted the flow too much for me to score this any higher.
This was an okay show from NXT UK. Nothing was bad, but nothing was particularly good either, other than a few bits of build to future matches.
