NXT UK results: Moustache Mountain vs. Gallus


Episode 21 (taped November 24, 2018 at the Liverpool Olympia in Liverpool, England)

Quick recap:

Travis Banks quickly defeated Jamie Ahmed but was called out by Jordan Devlin afterwards. The new team of Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner beat Kenny Williams & Jordan Devlin, and Jinny defeated Candyfloss.

In the main event, Moustache Mountain advanced to the NXT UK Tag Team Championship tournament finals by beating Gallus (Mark Coffey & Wolfgang). Both Pete Dunne and Joe Coffey got involved in the finish. The two teams brawled as the show went off the air, but not before Dunne accepted Joe Coffey's challenge for a WWE UK Championship match at NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool.

Full rundown:

The episode opened up with a graphic remembering "Mean" Gene Okerlund, who sadly passed away today.

Travis Banks defeated Jamie Ahmed in 1:40 with Slice of Heaven

Banks took him down early until Ahmed escaped. Banks tried to get a submission, but Ahmed made the ropes. Banks hit a dropkick to the back of Ahmed's head and followed with a German suplex. He then hit a shotgun dropkick, a double foot stomp off the middle ropes, and Slice of Heaven for the quick win.

Jordan Devlin came out after the match to trash talk Banks. He talked about how Banks left his native New Zealand to wrestle and, while Devlin cashes his check and goes home to his family after the matches, he wondered if Banks' mum even remembered his voice. He dared Banks to shut him up.

- Nigel McGuinness and Vic Joseph talked about the NXT UK Tag Team title tournament and recapped the history between Moustache Mountain and Gallus, leading into tonight's main event. A graphic plugged the next match with the debuting team of Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner.

- A recap of the recent Dave Mastiff and Eddie Dennis angles aired, and a rematch between the two monsters was announced for the next episode.

Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner defeated Amir Jordan & Kenny Williams in 7:31 with a powerbomb/Saito suplex combination

Williams wouldn't dance with Jordan as they came out. Williams and Barthel traded arm locks early on. Jordan received a thrust to the throat for his dancing antics by Barthel, who tagged out to Aichner. Aichner dominated Jordan until he escaped to hit a body block but got caught and then destroyed by both heels, who proceeded to beat the heck out of him and quickly tagged in and out.

Williams made the save after a spine buster/running kick combo. Barthel then hit a butterfly suplex and transitioned into a chinlock. Jordan finally made the hot tag to Williams -- who ran wild.

Williams hit a plancha to the outside and even saved Jordan from certain defeat by Barthel's Landungsbrücken. Aichner and Barthel put an end to that tomfoolery by hitting a powerbomb/Saito suplex combo on Jordan for the win.

- A segment from earlier today aired, where Radzi Chinyanganya caught Toni Storm and Deonna Purrazzo agreeing to a match for Storm's title shot at NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool. A graphic promised Jinny would be in action next

- Sid Scala and Johnny Saint were talking about TakeOver when Joe Coffey interrupted and demanded a title match against Pete Dunne at that event. Scala said they'd take it under consideration. Saint dismissed him and told Scala they would talk.

Jinny defeated Candyfloss in 4:23 with A Touch of Couture

To her dismay, Candyfloss hugged Jinny early. They traded submissions until Candyfloss mocked Jinny by lying down next to her. Jinny locked in a double wristlock and rammed Candyfloss' head into the corner. Candyfloss hit two dropkicks but couldn't capitalize as Jinny hit a Japanese arm drag into the corner, followed by A Touch of Couture for the victory.

- Gallus were shown backstage preparing for their match.

NXT UK Tag Team title tournament semifinal match: Moustache Mountain defeated Gallus (Mark Coffey & Wolfgang) in 14:37 after a springboard lariat/dragon suplex combo on Coffey

Coffey and Bate started, with Bate hitting a big dropkick right away. Bate also hit a somersault splash off Seven's shoulders for a quick cover shortly after. The heels took over after a distraction by Wolfgang. They worked Bate over for a while -- until he managed to hit a hurricanrana and make the hot tag.

Seven hit a DDT and a Falcon Arrow for a near fall on Coffey. Some more cheating led to the heels back on offense as Wolfgang hit a number of sentons on Seven. Coffey hit a stiff forearm on Seven that almost knocked him out, and he kept being the face in peril for a few more minutes. After a lengthy bear hug, Wolfgang threw Seven to the outside -- where Coffey preyed on him but ate a suplex for his troubles.

Seven finally managed to tag in Bate, who immediately hit a dive to the outside and ran wild on Wolfgang, then hit another dive to the outside. Bate hit an impressive exploder, followed by a running Shooting Star Press on Wolfgang for a near fall. Bate did the airplane spin on Wolfgang, then turned around to repeat it in the other direction. A deadlift suplex attempt went awry and Wolfgang managed to tag out.

In a super impressive spot, Bate hit a German suplex on Wolfgang while Coffey was piggybacking on his back. Seven took out Wolfgang with a dive as Bate went for the Tyler Driver '97. Coffey back body dropped Bate, Bate flipped over and went for his springboard lariat, and he got caught with Coffey's forearm as both men were stunned.

Gallus called for help by Joe Coffey. He came out, but Pete Dunne was at his heels and the two brawled around ringside. In the ring, Bate and Seven hit their combined springboard lariat/dragon suplex on Mark Coffey for the win.

As the faces celebrated, Joe Coffey attacked Pete Dunne once more and Gallus proceeded to beat down British Strong Style until the faces made their own comeback to dispose of their mortal enemies.

Dunne grabbed the mic and accepted Joe Coffey's challenge for a WWE UK Championship match at NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool. Gallus then hit the ring and the two teams brawled once more as the show faded to black.
