I don't think so. The best you'll get to see from NXTUK will be Dunne vs WALTER.

Few more spoilers from today, including a debut:

Quote:
NXT UK is taping today from Coventry, England where Rhea Ripley defeated Xia Brookside. After the match, Ripley cut a promo about how she's the most dominant woman in NXT UK, but Viper (aka Piper Niven) cut her off and made her debut with NXT UK. The two would have a bit of a face-off with Viper cutting her own promo afterwards.

As noted, it was reported last month WWE had interest in Viper who participated in the 2017 Mae Young Classic.

Wrestling Inc. will have complete spoilers from today's tapings later.


Quote:
The NXT UK tapings are being held in Coventry, England where Noam Dar took on Mark Andrews in one-on-one action.

During the match, Dar reportedly went for a reverse hurricanrana that caused a stoppage to the match. The referee put up the "X" signal, trainers checked on Dar and Andrews. Both were stretched out to the back.

It was announced yesterday Dar would be switching from 205 Live to the NXT UK brand as he was reportedly moving back to Europe to live full-time.
Hopefully Dar & Andrews are both ok.

I doubt it. But I suspect they will be involved with Fan Axxess over the weekend and might have a tapings there as well.

Re: NXT UK Spoiler Thread

I still kind of want Rhea to be Asuka's Mania opponent myself. And it kind of feels like her work in NXT UK is done now, so perhaps it's time to move on?

WALTER vs. Dunne, YES PLEASE!!

So around 1500 in attendance each night? Arena looks half empty in the pictures.

So major misjudgment and disappointment on ticket sales and the venue or did they not release that many tickets to begin with?

Re: NXT UK Spoiler Thread

Seems that commentary will be recorded live tonight rather than done in post-production.

Your dark match opener is Kassius Ohno against newcomer Oliver Carter. Strange to have Ohno in a dark match.
Ohno wins. Of course.

Confirmed for tonight is Kenny Williams & Amir Jordan vs. The Grizzled Young Veterans, Ligero vs. Jordan Devlin and Travis Banks vs. Joseph Conners.
Eight men will compete to qualify for a fatal four way to determine the number one contender to the NXT UK title.

A predictable result in the opener as Moustache Mountain defeat Primate and Wild Boar:


Joe Coffey Ė who gets a great reaction in his home town Ė takes on Flash Morgan Webster in the first four-way qualifier
Coffey wins to advance:

Nina Samuels beats Kasey Owens in short order then cuts a promo on Toni Storm after the match

Blimey, itís time for the Pete Dunne vs. WALTER rematch right now!

WALTER retains the title thanks to assistance from Fabian Aichner and Marcel Barthel. Said to be a great match. It looks like we are getting a version of Ringkampf in NXT UK!

Jamie Hayter, one of the most exciting women on the UK scene (they just want everyone, donít they?) makes her debut and loses to local hero Piper Niven (Viper)


Jordan Devlin def. Ligero to advance to the four-way. No surprises there.

Ilja Dragunov makes his NXT UK TV debut with an easy win over resident jobber Jack Starz.

Meanwhile, Amir Jordan has been attacked backstage, putting the tag team main event in jeopardy

Xia Brookside vs. Killer Kelly went to a no contest when Jinny and the debuting Jazzy Gabert interfered. The latter duo are now a unit.

Dave Mastiff becomes the third man to enter the title shot four-way, defeating Scotlandís own Wolfgang to progress. Gallus gave Mastiff a beating after the match.

The four-way for the title shot is set and the result is another entirely predictable one as Travis Banks defeats Joseph Conners. The four-way will be Joe Coffey vs. Jordan Devlin vs. Dave Mastiff vs. Travis Banks. My money is on Devlin following their incredible matches in OTT.

Rhea Ripley cuts an angry promo, with Piper Niven the focus of her attention. Sounds like they are building to a match tomorrow

With Amir Jordan out of the tag match main event, Noam Dar steps in to replace him. You could see this coming a mile off, particularly as the proposed headliner was never going to fly as a main event match on a card featuring Dunne vs. WALTER. The tag titles are up for grabs.

No title change to pop the locals Ė Gibson and Drake retain the belts against Williams and Dar.

Post-match (potentially a dark segment), Gallus come out to beat down Williams and Dar. Moustache Mountain makes the save. The cynic in me thinks its a PROGRESS getting one up on ICW on their home turf thing, but itís probably not . . .

And in the dark match main event the babyfaces overcome as Kenny Williams (who got the pin), Noam Dar and Moustache Mountain beat Gallus and Grizzled Young Veterans.

Just to confirm Alexander Wolfe was backstage and is now with NXT UK but his debut is being saved for tomorrow.

Thatís all folks, see you tomorrow.
They taped shows today and will do more tomorrow. Some highlights:

*There will be a 4 Way between Banks, Coffey, Mastiff, and Devlin to determine a new #1 Contender tomorrow.

*Dunne and Walter had their rematch and Walter won with help from Aichner and Barthel. Loos like they'll be doing some form of Ringkampf in NXT UK.

*Dragunov made his TV debut.

*Jinny and Jazzy Gabert are a duo.

*Noam Dar is OK and returned in the main event for the tag titles which he lost.

@Donnie , some things that might interest you.
