Die Familie (Charlie Dempsey & Rohan Raja) beat A-Kid & Saxon Huxley (08:25)

A-Kid and Dempsey started out and picked up where they left off in their last singles match. Both tagged out and Huxley slammed Raja to start things off but missed an elbow drop.

Dempsey and A-Kid met again with Dempsey gaining the upper hand. Raja and Dempsey worked over A-Kid in their corner and quickly tagged in and out to prevent A-Kid from tagging in Huxley.

A-Kid finally hit a dropkick on Dempsey in the corner, then evaded Raja to get Huxley back in the match. Huxley ran wild, then scored a near fall with a Thesz Press on Dempsey.

Dempsey got on a double wristlock before both tagged out again. A-Kid dropped Raja with a German suplex before double-teaming Raja with his new partner. As they looked to put Raja away, Teoman pulled A-Kid off the top rope, then shoved him into the stairs, allowing Raja to hit Seek and Destroy on Huxley for the pinfall victory.

  • Amale was talking about tonight's main event; Xia Brookside interrupted her and asked her for a rematch; Amale said she'd see what she could do. Xia was excited, then called her daddy and told him it was time.

Wild Boar pinned T-Bone (04:38)

Boar came through the crowd and attacked all three members of Symbiosis before the match.

T-Bone briefly dominated, but Boar came back and ran wild. A distraction by Primate allowed T-Bone to take over at ringside. T-Bone attacked Boar's previously injured knee, then got a near fall off a vertical suplex.

Boar eventually came back with a spear into the corner and a DDT for the win.

After the match, Boar chased Dennis backstage.

  • Ilja Dragunov accepted Roderick's Strong title challenge. He said they both knew that diamonds were made under pressure but he was a diamond that would not crack. They will meet in two weeks
  • Kenny Williams didn't want to talk to the camera. He found his car tampered with and missing a tire. He said when he found out who had done this, they would pay.

Jordan Devlin beat Danny Jones (4:45)

Devlin manhandled the larger Jones and beat him down with strikes and kicks. He took Jones down with a vicious knee off both men running at each other.

Devlin taunted Jones, who briefly got on offense and even scored two near falls.

Devlin hit a spinning cutter from the apron, then hit a brainbuster for the pin.

After the match, Devlin claimed he was way ahead of the roster.

  • Ashton Smith & Oliver Carter talked about Smith's upcoming match with Trent  Seven. Smith vowed he would beat Seven and had scouted him well. Seven did some zen training with Tyler Bate and said he'd do whatever he needed to win. The match takes place next week.
  • Mark Coffey and Noam Dar talked about their Heritage Cup match next week. Dar beat the other two members of Gallus already and didn't take Mark seriously. Mark vowed to win.

NXT UK Women's Championship: Meiko Satomura (c) defeated Isla Dawn to retain the title (08:04)

Dawn pushed Meiko's face away and received forearms and leg kicks for an answer. She then quickly tied up and choked Satomura in the ropes. The champ came back with a number of kicks, leading to a near fall.

Dawn dominated an exchange at ringside, then scored a two count of her own. She followed with a chinlock but Meiko eventually escaped. Dawn kept the pressure up with more kicks and a double knee press.

Meiko came back with more strikes and a backdrop driver that almost won her the match. She followed with a frog splash, but Dawn got her knees up. Dawn followed with a fisherman's suplex, but Meiko narrowly kicked out.

Dawn missed a top rope kick, then got hit with a Pele kick and dropped with a Death Valley Driver for another super close near fall. Isla got hit with a DDT, but evaded a handspring kneedrop. 

Isla had Meiko on her shoulders, but the champion escaped and used a unique pinning combination to win the match.

After the match, Dawn stole the title belt and was being creepy with it.

Final Thoughts --

A fun show with nothing really standing out as spectacular. 

The main event was good in the latter stages and the opener was good for brief periods when A-Kid and Dempsey were in with each other.

The Devlin match was a glorified squash and Wild Boar's return match felt more like an angle to build up more matches with Symbiosis.

Next week --

  • NXT UK Heritage Cup: Noam Dar (c) vs. Mark Coffey
  • Trent Seven vs. Ashton Smith
  • Amale vs. Xia Brookside

In two weeks --

  • NXT UK Championship: Ilja Dragunov (c) vs. Roderick Strong
