Andres came back with a wheelbarrow bulldog, a kick and a double foot stomp onto Gradwell's back. Gradwell held onto Andrews' leg as he ran the ropes and hit him with a forearm for another near fall. Gradwell caught Andrews in mid-air, but he turned it into Stun Dog Millionaire. Gradwell went to the outside and Andrews hit a moonsault off the second turnbuckle to the outside.

Andrews went for a springboard move from the apron, but Gradwell caught him and hit a fireman's carry slam for the win.

Round 1

Dar evaded Wolfgang early, then forced a break off the ropes. Wolfgang had Dar's number, but Dar managed to hurt his arm when Wolfgang put him on the top rope. Dar kept working over Wolfgang's shoulder but Wolfgang hoisted him up for a powerbomb just as the round ended.

Round 2

Dar dropkicked Wolfgang's head, but Wolfgang came back with a crossbody in the corner and an axe handle off the top. Suddenly, Jordan Devlin ran out and attacked Joe Coffey. Officials ran out to break things up, but Wolfgang was distracted, allowing Dar to roll him up for the first fall at 1:26 of the round. Dar 1-0

Round 3

Wolfgang hit a spear right away and got the pin at 0:05 of the round. Wolfgang 1-1

Round 4

Wolfgang attacked early and Dar tried evading him. They went to ringside, but Dar whipped the middle rope into Wolfgang's crotch as he entered the ring. The ended up outside again, where Dar kicked the ring post and Wolfgang speared the barricade just as the round ended.

Round 5

Wolfgang hit a running backbreaker for a near fall. Dar got an armbar on Wolfgang, then transitioned into a leg lock, but Wolfgang eventually escaped. Dar went for the Nova Roller, but Wolfgang hit a spear. The time ran out a second before the referee made the three count, so Dar was saved by the bell.

Round 6

Dar hit leg kicks early, but Wolfgang no-sold his offense and hit a suplex. Dar took out Wolfgang's leg, then attacked it once more from the top rope. Dar got a near fall off a rollup, then another one after a head kick.

Dar hit the Nova Roller with one minute left in the round, but Wolfgang got back up. Dar hit a second one as Wolfgang was on his knees to gain the victory at 2:20 of the round. Noam Dar wins 2-1

After the match, Tyler Bate came out with the Heritage Cup trophy and posed with it as the show went off the air.

Final thoughts --

The McKenzie vs. Jinny match built to the next title match.

Andrews vs. Gradwell was nothing too exciting.

The Heritage Cup final was really good and may have been one of Wolfgang's better matches. Dar winning surely will lead to an exciting match down the line.

Next week --

  • Ilja Dragunov vs. A-Kid for the NXT UK Championship
  • Blair Davenport vs. Stevie Turner
