NXT UK 6/9/2022


A video recapped last week's Tag Team title match with Oliver Carter & Ashton Smith becoming champions. After the match, Trent Seven told Tyler Bate that he was "done."



Mark Andrews defeated Kenny Williams (9:47)

***

Thumbs Up

Williams checked under the ring for his "stalker" Tiger Turan as the match began. Andrews hit Williams with a baseball slide and beat him around ringside. Andrews was in control until Williams rammed him into the ring post as they fought on the apron.

Williams was looking to finish Andrews up, but Turan suddenly appeared on the apron, distracting Williams. He went to punch Turan, who dropped off the apron, evading the attack, allowing Andrews to roll Williams up with a small package to get the win.


Another video looked at Seven declaring he was done last week. He will address the people next week on his status.


- Mark Coffey was asked about news from his brother Joe. Mark said he hadn't heard from him, but then apparently received a call from Joe. Mark told Joe to call him when he needed anything or call either of their parents and told Joe to take as long as he needed. Mark seemed concerned after the call.


Symbiosis (Primate & T-Bone w/ Eddie Dennis) defeated Oli Blake & Tate Mayfairs (4:34)

**1/4

Thumbs Up

T-Bone hit a powerslam on Mayfairs, followed by a top rope headbutt by Primate for the dominant victory.

After the match, Symbiosis stared at Eddie Dennis as he celebrated with them. Symbiosis then turned against Dennis and hit their powerslam/flying headbutt finish on him as well.



- Ilja Dragunov was interviewed backstage. He said he was here to watch Meiko Satomura defend her title and said he admired her. Dragunov said they both are making sure NXT UK is the most dominant brand in the world.

- A video looked at Oliver Carter & Ashton Smith winning the NXT UK Tag Team titles last week and the roster backstage applauding them. The video also had headlines from various wrestling websites (including this one) about the win. There also was a video of Smith coming home to his little daughter and showing her the championship he had won. This was really nice.


Eliza Alexander (w/ Xia Brookside) defeated Amale (6:52)

**3/4

Thumbs Up

Alexander hit a running kick to Amale's head as she was in the ropes, then choked her in the corner with her boot. Alexander hit a knee to the head and then locked in a chinlock. They traded forearms and Amale hit a few kicks and clotheslines, then followed with a bulldog for another two count.

Amale hit a running kick on Alexander in the corner, then kicked Brookside off the apron for good measure before rolling Alexander up for a near fall. Alexander then quickly hit a running kick to the head to pick up the victory.


- Wolfgang picked Damon Kemp up from the gym and took him drinking at a pub. Kemp got more and more drunk, then apparently puked into some plants five rounds in as Wolfgang picked up another round. They kept drinking and then drunkenly stumbled down the street. They will team together against Noam Dar & Sha Samuels next week.


- Lash Legend talked about defeating Emilia McKenzie. Myla Grace walked up and took offense.



NXT UK Women's Champion Meiko Satomura defeated Ivy Nile to retain her title (10:24)

***1/4

Thumbs Up

After the match, Satomura helped Nile up, shook her hand, and hugged her.


Final Thoughts

A fun show. The main event was good and Ivy Nile looked competent, while Meiko Satomura nicely complemented her style.

Primate and T-Bone turning on Eddie Dennis was interesting. I believe neither will be babyfaces going forward, but the former Symbiosis may try to challenge for the NXT UK Tag Team titles down the line. Amale vs. Eliza Alexander was fine but unremarkable.
