Travis Banks def. Joseph Connors – Fatal 4-Way Qualifying Match
In the final moments of NXT UK’s high stakes open matchup, Travis Banks managed to overcome the aggressive style of Joseph Connors. After hitting the Slice of Heaven off the ropes, he quickly followed up with the Kiwi Crusher to earn the final spot in the Fatal 4-Way Match to determine the No. 1 contender to the WWE United Kingdom Championship.
As the dust cleared, The Kiwi Buzzsaw vowed that he will triumph over Joe Coffey, Jordan Devlin and Dave Mastiff in his quest to capture the U.K Title in two weeks’ time.
Noam Dar def. Mark Andrews
Following a dual injury that brought a sudden halt to their contest several weeks ago, Mark Andrews and Noam Dar stepped back into the squared circle to finish what they started.
But, after making it seem as if his knee injury had returned and rendered him unable to continue, the Scottish Supernova suddenly hit Andrews from behind, before blasting him with the Nova Roller for the underhanded victory.
Rhea Ripley put Piper Niven on notice
The first-ever NXT UK Women’s Champion came before the NXT UK Universe to make it clear that when Piper Niven steps into the ring with her, her nightmares will become reality.
WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER def. Pete Dunne
It was touted as one of the biggest matches in NXT UK history, with Pete Dunne attempting to reclaim the WWE United Kingdom Championship from WALTER. Without a doubt, the subsequent contest was every bit the knockdown, drag out showdown that the NXT UK Universe expected it would be, both inside and outside the ring.
But in the height of the action, just as The BruserWeight secured the arm of the Ring General and began to bend back his fingers to make it seem as if the tap-out was inevitable, Fabian Aichner suddenly emerged to push the bottom ring rope forward so that WALTER could get his leg on it.
Then, as the referee was busy dealing with that distraction, Marcel Barthel entered the ring and blasted Dunne with the U.K. Title from behind. This cleared the road for WALTER to hit the powerbomb and successfully defend the gold.
As the dust cleared, WALTER, Aichner and Barthel stood over Dunne, presenting a stunning united front that threatens to completely transform the rising brand forever.
