Re: NXT UK Weekly Show Discussion Thread [NO SPOILERS BEFORE THE SHOWS AIR PLEASE]

NXT UK 10.

— The Storm/Jinny and Ripley/Dakota matches were fine. I knew what was coming as I had it spoiled for me and I don’t get the booking of this at all. McGuinness made a very funny point, why did they book it so the only person from the UK that made it out of the first round in the UK Women’s tournament was Jinny? Shouldn’t more people actually from the UK have made it out of the first round? Plus the person who wins the whole tournament is the only person in this thing that has no association to the UK scene. WWE LOL.

— I actually quite enjoyed the Mastiff/T-Bone match. It wasn’t some instant classic or whatever, it was a very basic match but I liked the way that every move both guys used fed into their wider presentation as characters on the show.


BRO

I also talking about wrestling on my Twitter if you want to follow me or whatever...

Re: NXT UK Weekly Show Discussion Thread [NO SPOILERS BEFORE THE SHOWS AIR PLEASE]

Some random thoughts from the last 2 episodes:

*Rhea and Dakota work really well together. Rhea is continuing to develop her heel character nicely. And Dakota is always a solid hand.

*Toni and Jinny had another good match in their series. I will say Jinny is impressing me more here honestly than she has in Progress. I love that Rainmaker into that Rolling Kick. Great move.

*Eddie Dennis is coming off very "try hard" in his performances so far. Honestly he's not someone who really has the look of a "dominant force." He's tall, but really doesn't have the look of a wrestler. I'd like to see him be a bit more despicable.

*Jordan Devlin continues to have solid performances.

*And @MarkyWhipwreck , we shall see. But don't lie to your pal TD, we all know you want Cole to win the UK Title so that when Cole wins the NXT Title, you can say Cole is "the only man in NXT history to win every single NXT Championship."

I find these shows quite boring but the matches are overall very good.

Are Toni Storm and Tyler Bate back together ? She's using his finisher.

Even stranger then. Surely she could just use her Air Raid Crash Neckbreaker, why does she have to use her ex's finisher all of a sudden ?
Maybe I'm looking too much into this but it got me thinking.

Weird question but just curious. Does Millie McKenzie still go to school at her age while she actually wrestles for NXT UK? I am really surprised they put her in the title tournament instead of Killer Kelly. She seems like a rare gem of a talent, but one would figure the WWE is better off holding out on for at least a couple years until she gets a bit older.

She is 18 so no. At this point, if she stayed in education and gone to college first, she would be off to university (it's two different things in the UK).

Re: NXT UK Weekly Show Discussion Thread [NO SPOILERS BEFORE THE SHOWS AIR PLEASE]

Two more episodes of good and bad this week...

Episode 11
Things kicked off with a Women's Tag Match, Xia Brookside & Millie McKenzie vs Killer Kelly & Charlie Morgan. Match was all about showcasing Xia and Millie as a team, it was poor though and the finish came through a random roll up.

Eddie "Dollar Store Psycho" Dennis defeated Ashton Smith. Smith another one of those guys who bring nothing to the table; however he is more bearable than certain others. They need to delve into Dennis's character more to make him more interesting.

Joseph Conners defeated Saxon Huxley in an absolute shit show.

Then just like last week, the main event saves an episode... the best in the UK division vs the most underrated.

Jordan Devlin is so good at playing a dickhead heel, his wrestling ability though is top notch at times, I love his moveset. Things went up a notch in about the middle of this match, Dunne "hurt" his back, not sure if it was legitimate or not but Devlin pounced all over it. First off he hit a Spanish Fly off of the steel steps, both came back into the ring on the count of nine, Dunne got the upper hand by targeting Devlin's hands, this led to a sequence where Dunne almost finished him off; however Devlin countered the Bitter End into a reverse rana, one of the best spots of the match, the audience loved it. Devlin then attempted a springboard only to get clocked with a forearm from Dunne who then followed up with a Bitter End, Dunne took too long to pin as Devlin cleverly rolled his way to the outside. A nice moment of psychology followed as Devlin targeted Dunne's back again by pushing him into the turnbuckle, Devlin followed this up by nailing Dunne with his third Spanish Fly of the match off the turnbuckle, a gorgeous looking spot. The drama intensified as Devlin was trying to close in on victory, he took out Dunne's mouthpiece and nailed him with a superkick for a two count, he went high risk with a moonsault but Dunne caught him in a submission, Devlin tried to get to the ropes, Dunne rolled him back towards the middle, snapped his fingers put on another submission to the hand and Devlin tapped.

The match might have had that feel of predictability surrounding it; however nonetheless it was a fun and exciting match, Devlin yet again proving that he is one of the most improved wrestlers in 2018.

Episode 12
Things kicked off with what was meant to be Joe Coffey vs Sid Scala, but it turned into Joe Coffey vs Tyler Bate. Seems Scala might be getting some kind of management assistant role, probably because he's a much better talker than Johnny Saint. Coffey vs Bate started pretty slow, Coffey was starting to bore me to tears; however to my surprise things started to pick up and Coffey was starting to somewhat impress me. As the match was starting to get good...it finished...via a DQ as Mark Coffey and Wolfgang attacked Tyler Bate as he had set up the Tyler Driver 97.

El Ligero back to winning ways with a win over Dan Maloney, this was an ok match.

Gibson & Drake get their first outing as a team against Kenny Williams & Amir Jordan. This was a solid Tag Match, James Drake instantly looks far more comfortable and far more better with Gibson by his side. A solid showcase of teamwork by The Grizzled Young Veterans, mostly beating down Jordan. Williams & Jordan match well together and they didn't look too bad here, but of course The Grizzled Young Veterans picked up the win. Gibson & Drake remind me of The Revival, not as good but they are very similar in their style.

Rhea Ripley is my new crush As for the match though, I'm not sure if it was meant to be booked that way or Toni legitimately got injured. Toni seemed to tweak her back in her Semi Final match, in the early proceedings here Rhea stiffed her in the back with a kick and that seemed to trigger something. From then on though Rhea impressed me, her work targeting Toni's back was masterful, in particular I loved her aggression. Toni started to mount a comeback; however the match seemed to lose it's momentum during this spell. They plodded along towards the finish, Rhea produced some decent work though, targeting Toni's arm and legs at one point like she well and truly wanted to fuck her up. A little sequence towards the end led to the finish, Toni hit a counter but her back gave out, this led to Rhea hitting her finisher for the win. Rhea is one attractive badass with an incredibly bright future, as for her reign I could easily see Toni taking the title from her; however the story is perfectly set up for a long reign until Tegan Nox returns from injury.

Overall thoughts
Dunne vs Devlin saved Episode 11 from being a shitfest, this was one of the best matches I've seen from the UK brand so far.

Episode 12 was a pretty solid episode throughout, decent wrestling in all the matches, nothing really bored me.
