A stacked episode of NXT saw two incredible championship matches with Undisputed Era challenging Sanity for the NXT tag Team Titles & Tyler Bate gets a rematch for the United Kingdom Championship against Pete Dunne. We also saw the last qualifying match for the Fatal Four Way Number One Contenders Match between Lars Sullivan & Roderick Strong.
Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly defeated Eric Young & Killian Dain to win the NXT Tag Team Championship. Grade: B- A shock title change that certainly will ‘Shock The System’, the Undisputed Era now have championship gold making them even more dangerous than they were before. Adam Cole got involved in his slimy way only for Nikki Cross to take him out and unleash an assault on him making officials drag her away, which was absolutely brilliant. A great title change here on NXT TV.
Tino Sabbatelli & Riddick Moss confront Heavy Machinery after they touch their car; how the car is Moss’ as well and not just Sabbatelli’s I don’t quite understand but it looks like these two teams will be heading into a little feud together.
Next week Ember Moon will defend her NXT Women’s Championship against Sonya Deville.
Lars Sullivan defeated Roderick Strong to Qualify for the Fatal Four Way Number One Contenders Match. Grade: B- While I hate how far down the card Strong has fallen, he gave Sullivan almosy certainly his best match here. Strong for some good offence on Sullivan in sections however eventually Sullivan destroyed The Messiah of the Backbreaker for the win. Sullivan’s strong push continues while Strong remains in no mans land in NXT.
Pete Dunne retained the WWE United Kingdom Championship defeating Tyler Bate. Grade: A+ I said previously I didn’t want WWE to overdo this match, I was wrong. This was absolutely AMAZING! How two men do young can have such great chemistry and such great matches on such a big stage so consistently is unbelievable. What started as a technical mat classic, Pete Dunne showed an sadistic side as he continually targeted the wrist and hand of Bate as he ‘Dislocated’ Bates finger multiple times. Bate even kicked out of the Bitter End and Dunne kicked out of the Tyler Driver 97 as the two hit big move after big move as they traded their best shots. I may be caught in the moment, but this was as good as their Chicago match, perhaps the only difference being how much hotter the Chicago crowd was. Words can’t do it justice, watch this match! Amazing!
