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

*I had never heard of this Mansoor until this week, but after seeing his performances against Dijak and Banks, this guy looks like he can a future star. Can't wait to see more of him.

*Dragunov is officially coming to NXT UK. He's a great addition.

*The Nina Samuels promo was well produced and she carries herself well. Have no idea how a Toni vs. Nina match will go though.

*Piper's match with Reina was basically to establish what she can do against someone her own size before she eventually faces Rhea. It worked well enough.

*Walter vs. Devlin was really good. They have great chemistry with one another and I hope they get another chance on a Takeover stage one day.

I would disagree about zero atmosphere. I thought this round of Axxess shows from NXT UK to the World Collide shows had a really good atmosphere and the crowds for the most part were pretty lively. Honestly better than some of the UK crowds than they've been in front of.

And while I wouldn't have done the match already, it doesn't mean they can't build to an eventual rematch on Takeover.

New NXT UK.

— Some good action between MM and Hunt, nothing remarkable perhaps but perfectly fine.

— God, the cheapness of the production design when it came to the sign on that door. Embarrassing.

— Not a great match between Coffey and Webster and I would have liked to see Webster advance, but it worked in context because of the crowd, who were great. The post match promo thing for this though was... not good. It seemed like Gallus couldn't quite work out, in front of this crowd, whether they were still heels or not and then Wolfgang started cutting that promo and they cut him off..? Is this like to suggest dissension in the ranks or..? But why?

— Damn, Dunne getting that star treatment he deserves.

What is it about Nina Samuels that she cannot get a reaction out of the crowd for the life of her no matter what she does?

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

Neither of the qualifying matches did it for me this week. I can never get into a Ligero match. And Mastiff vs. Wolfgang didn't do much for me.

On the positive side, Walter's video package was very well done. Dragunov had a solid debut though it will probably take some time for fans to get used to him in NXT UK. But he's a guy who could main event a UK Takeover with Walter some time down the line.

And you had Jazzy's debut. On one hand it seems out of character for Killer Kelly to leave the ring and avoid a fight. On the other hand I can she's smarter than most pro wrestlers. Poor Xia, always the punching bag, lol.

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

The womens division in NXT UK is getting stacked, it puts the NXT womens division to shame. I really can't think of one bad female wrestler on the NXT UK roster, i could see almost all of them winning the title at some point, can't say the same about NXT's womens division.

Dragunov's debut was alright, this is my first time seeing him, he definitely has a cool ass look with the contacts and intensity. I wasn't majorly impressed with him in the ring but i'll give him more time. Not sure what his finisher was, it looked like a running european uppercut but it looks like his head hit him more than the uppercut.

Totally agree, I love the women's division right now especially with Piper & Jazzy recently added to the mix...Imagine if those two joined a stable with Rhea at some point..yikes!

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

I really feel like NXT UK needs a midcard title. They've got tag titles, a women's title and their main belt but they've got an actual pretty stacked roster and it feels like with only the United Kingdom champion for men's singles competition a lot of them are just spinning their wheels waiting for the rare moments they get near it.

Hell given it's not just British talent on the show they could bring back a version of the European Championship as the midcard belt.

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

New NXT UK.

Skipped last weeks and only tuned in this week to watch Dunne/WALTER 2. Did they really do all this to set up a BSS v EU feud? If so, what a load of bollocks...

In terms of the match, outside of the shitty finish I was still pretty eh on this throughout.

I think this went shorter than the TakeOver match but it still went a little long for me. I love WALTER and Dunne individually but their styles blended together just don't warrant 15 - 20 minute long matches, at least not for my tastes. In both of these matches I found myself getting quite bored. There were some good sequences, some surprisingly contrived ones as well and some real clunky ones (although you could argue they added to the “real feel” the match had) but really I don't think anything would be lost but a lot would have been gained if they reduced the running time of this by about a third.

I will say that I did like some of the storytelling here, especially when it came to positioning this like a true sequel with both guys clearly coming up with strategies using what they learned from the first encounter. I wish this stuff played into the match more but I guess after the ending this match never really mattered anyway.

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

So why was Dunne vs WALTER 2 not saved for the upcoming Takeover in 2 weeks? I don't get why they put it on a regular episode of NXT UK.
