NXT UK results: Trent Seven speaks, Blair Davenport returns

Seven addressed why he turned against his Moustache Mountain partner Tyler Bate.

Blair Davenport defeated Angel Hayze (5:34)

Hayze used her speed and agility early on, but she got stopped with a basement dropkick and the returning Davenport took over. Hayze briefly came back and scored a two count off a botched slingblade.

Davenport hit a dropkick from the second turnbuckle, then turned a guillotine into a Northern Lights suplex. Davenport followed up with a Falcon Arrow for the pinfall victory.

After the match, Davenport declared that she's back and vowed that she will crush dreams.

- Kenny Williams was in Sid Scala's office when Tiger Turan walked in and they had words. They will have a match next week -- and Williams vowed to unmask Turan.

- Noam Dar and Sha Samuels walked into the UK Performance Center, where Mark Coffey was training. They had words and Coffey challenged Dar to a match for the Heritage Cup Championship. Samuels gave 1 in 100 odds to Coffey winning and bet a stack of his own money. A lot of wrestlers and trainers then wanted in on the bet.

Fallon Henley defeated Emilia McKenzie (8:32)

McKenzie used grappling and submission techniques early, but Henley escaped. Henley came back with some power moves. McKenzie hit a swinging neckbreaker for a two count.

They traded pinfall attempts and McKenzie locked in a modified Cobra Clutch. Henley looked to have tweaked her knee when she jumped over McKenzie, who took advantage of the injury, hit a spear to the leg, and worked the leg over.

Henley then countered an attack into a sunset flip for the surprise victory. McKenzie looked upset but still shook Henley's hand.

- Oliver Carter talked about Ashton Smith's recovery from injury. Die Familie entered and Teoman greeted Carter in German. All three tried to persuade Carter to join them and told him that it would be in his best interest. They left and Carter looked like he was thinking.

- Sarray trained at the UK Performance Center. Xia Brookside and Eliza Alexander walked up and talked down to her. Meiko Satomura and Emilia McKenzie then walked into the frame and Satomura told the two heels that they talk too much. Satomura said that -- if Brookside and Alexander wanted to step into the ring -- she and Sarray would teach them a lesson. McKenzie briefly looked taken aback that Satomura would team with Sarray instead of her.

Wolfgang defeated Sha Samuels (10:20)

Wolfgang used his power early on to manhandle Samuels. Samuels finally outsmarted the bigger man and worked over his left arm. Wolfgang's shoulder gave out on a suplex attempt and Samuels dropped him with a lariat.

Samuels applied a number of submissions on the injured shoulder, then hit a spinebuster as Wolfgang came off the top rope and was distracted by Noam Dar on the apron.

Wolfgang turned the match around when he got his knees up as Samuels came off the ropes. He dropped Dar with a big boot, then vaulted over the top rope and hit a spear on Samuels for the win.

Trent Seven in-ring promo

Seven came out dressed like a proper douche.

Since turning against Tyler Bate, Seven said he's heard the question "Why, Trent? Why?" Seven said he had some visual aids. He brought up a picture of him low-blowing Bate, calling it a work of art.

Seven said it was the most important moment in British sports as he saved the industry. Seven said he was the center of attention now and took credit for having the most fans in BT Sport Studios since NXT UK started taping there.

Seven said Bate had lost his killer instinct and would not come back to face him. He said Bate was a weak little boy and would never be back -- while Seven was British Strong Style and Moustache Mountain.

As Seven left, he got into it with a fan at ringside. Security told the fan to calm down, but the fan jumped the rail and Seven kicked him in the groin as security held the fan back.

Final Thoughts --

An average show with not a lot of great in-ring action. Wolfgang vs. Samuels was fine (as is to be expected with those two), Davenport's return was a glorified squash, and Henley looked wooden at times. They are continuing to set up a slow-burn program between Satomura and McKenzie down the line it seems.

Trent Seven's promo was the best thing on the show.

Next Week --

  • Kenny Williams vs. Tiger Turan
  • Meiko Satomura & Sarray vs. Xia Brookside & Eliza Alexander

In Two Weeks --

  • NXT UK Heritage Cup Champion Noam Dar defends against Mark Coffey
