NXT UK Night 2 Live Spoilers


Welcome to our second night of live coverage of the NXT UK spoilers from the Olympia in Liverpool as the build towards NXT TakeOver: Blackpool continues.


  • The pre-taping dark match pits local lad Jack Starz against last night’s surprise debutante Primate, who is billed here as “Primate Jay Melrose”.
  • Perhaps surprisingly considering the setting, Primate downed Starz in a short match. This may be a sign that Primate is on the radar and will be coming back in the future.
  • The first match proper pits Toni Storm against Deonna Purrazzo in what should be a cracking opener. Purrazzo leaves no room for interpretation over who the babyface is, kicking Storm’s hand away when she offers a handshake.
  • Toni wins a fantastic match via pinfall. Rhea Ripley comes out to pose with the NXT UK Women’s title afterwards.
  • Josh Morrell v Wild Boar is next.

  • Perhaps unsurprisingly, Boar scored the win with a cannonball and a frog splash
  • Dave Mastiff v Eddie Dennis is next. This match was set up last night. I rather expected it would be saved for TakeOver
  • All Star Wrestling promoter Brian Dixon is in the crowd. Jeremy Borash is also here, filming something or other. Apparently security tried to stop him filming, not realising who he was!
  • Dennis vs Mastiff goes to a double DQ. The pair brawled outside and barely broke the count. When they got back inside the ref got shoved and that was that. The brawl continued after the match as more referees came out. As did Sid Scala and then Johnny Saint.
  • Saint makes Eddie Dennis vs. Dave Mastiff official for TakeOver: Blackpool in a No DQ match.

  • Next up is a contract signing for TakeOver between Pete Dunne and Joe Coffey.
  • “It’s going to be historic when history is made. There’s going to be a change at TakeOver . . . Why are you still the champion? It’s because I, Joe Coffey, have not been here . . . It’s time for the Iron King to claim his throne.” – Joe Coffey
  • Coffey signs then Pete grabs his hand for the finger snap: “You talk too much. I’ll see you at NXT TakeOver Blackpool“. Gallus then head out, distracting Dunne, and Coffey puts him through a table.

  • And that’s the end of the first episode of the night.
  • Dan Moloney and Jamie Ahmed vs. Kenny Williams and Amir Jordan kicks off episode two.
  • Amir Jordan pinned Jamie Ahmed following a splash from the top rope. It looks like Jordan and Williams will be a regular team going forward.
  • Women’s action now, as Isla Dawn (who did not wrestler on yesterday’s tapings) takes on Liverpool’s own Xia Brookside.
  • Dawn wins, of course. NXT UK booking could certainly never be accused of being unpredictable.
  • Another Gallus promo follows. Joe Coffey says they know nobody likes them but they do not care, they only have one thing on their agenda: British Strong Style. Coffey says BSS and Dunne will get whats coming to them.
  • Jordan Devlin vs. Damien Weir (No Fun Dunne) next.
  • Devlin wins and is about to cut his now customary post-match promo but is interrupted by Travis Banks. The Kiwi Buzzsaw calls him out for a match right now. Devlin walks off. This is almost certainly going to happen at TakeOver.

  • And now it is time for the second semi-final in the NXT UK Tag Team Title tournament, with the winner facing Moustache Mountain at TakeOver. It’s The Grizzled Young Veterans (Zack Gibson and James Drake) taking on Flash Morgan Webster and Mark Andrews.
  • Aaaaand it is Gibson and Drake who are through to the finals at TakeOver, following an epic match that showcased all four men in a very positive light. One to look out for when it airs.The TakeOver card as it stands then:
  • Pete Dunne (c) v Joe Coffey – NXT UK Title
  • Rhea Ripley (c) v Toni Storm – NXT UK Women’s Title
  • Moustache Mountain v Grizzled Young Veterans – NXT UK Tag Titles
  • Eddie Dennis v Dave Mastiff – No DQ
  • Travis Banks v Jordan Devlin

  • Episode three starts with Ligero v Joseph Conners. The latter is wrestling his first match of the weekend.
  • Ligero pinned Conners after a really good outing between the two. Crowd was solidly behind Ligero.
  • Travis Banks v Tyson T-Bone is next, with Saxon Huxley in the corner of the latter.
  • Devlin came out to watch the match from the ramp but it did not distract Banks, who pinned T-Bone. Match was underwhelming. Devlin hit the ring but Banks chased him off.
  • Main event time now, as Gallus take on British Strong Style in what will be the go-home bout before TakeOver.
  • A quick round up of which contracted talent has not appeared on tonight’s tapings: Ashton Smith (who is out with illness), Sam Gradwell, Tucker, Charlie Morgan, Jinny, Killer Kelly, Nina Samuels. No Marcel Barthel or Fabian Aichner tonight either.

  • It’s chaos, with all six in the ring brawling, the match settling down, then all six getting back in and brawling again. BSS are over far bigger than anyone else on the card. The gap between them and everyone else is very noticeable.
  • This match is insane. It would not be out of place on TakeOver.
  • Gallus score the win when Joe Coffey pins Tyler Bate. Fairly typical WWE booking going into a PPV, with the heel challenger going over to establish him as a threat. Great match with some superb moments.
  • Pete is left along in the ring with Gallus in a powerful three on one image. Pete leaves, grabbing his teammates on the way out. The trio and indeed the match receive a standing ovation. Some way to end . . . If that is the end.
  • No UK Performance Center announcement yet. From what we understand they did not want to do two big announcements in the same weekend and that one may well be saved for TakeOver.
  • Tickets for TakeOver are available from tomorrow morning at 10am. Although ticket sales for NXT UK tapings have been poor, we would expect those to sell out immediately.
