Mark Andrews and Noam Dar ended in a no contest

The referee held up the X sign and the match was stopped after a reverse rana. Dar looks like he injured his knee. Andrews was also stretchered out.

Kay Lee Ray defeated Isla Dawn

So 6 weeks until the next set of tapings and they only taped 3 episodes? Am I missing a taping or something? I guess they have 3 dark matches from the weekend for an extra episode but looks like 3 weeks without nxt uk. Seems bloody ridiculous they have a great show, quite likely pick up some new viewers and then they stop airing? Who needs momentum.

I expect they will air the worlds collide at rumble axess but didn't think it would at the expense of the uk show.

Looks like they are going back to 1 episode a weeek and grizzled young vets vs burch & lorcan does say it will happen at nxt uk phoenix tapings, which would be in 2 weeks so im guessing they'll tape a few episodes there.

Each main event looks good on paper though and hopefully we start to get a great main event every week.

I love Kasey so I'm hoping her WOS deal is done and she'll become a regular now on NXTUK.

Always wondered what happened to her sister though? :shrug I believe she still wrestles but haven't heard about her in ages.

Yep and while I love the double uk fix every week I am so far behind on 205!
I didnt cotton on to the axess taping. Makes much more sense. Still pissed there is no episode this week. Thought in the least there would be the usual nxt takeover dark matches with recaps and interviews everyone already saw on wwe.com.

Re: Dunne vs Walter - Contains Spoiler

:sodone

BTW, here are yesterday's taping results:

Thanks to Eric Cunningham for the following WWE NXT UK TV tapings from today's tapings at the SkyDome Arena in Coventry, England. These will air over the next few weeks on the WWE Network, along with what they tape at the same arena on Saturday:

Episode 1:

* Ligero defeated Joseph Conners

* Nina Samuels defeated Charlie Morgan

* Wild Boar and Primate defeated Sam Stoker and Lewis Howley

* Jordan Devlin defeated Travis Banks in a Falls Count Anywhere match

Episode 2:

* Wolfgang defeated Flash Morgan Webster. Wolfgang beat Flash up after the match

* Amir Jordan and Kenny Williams defeated Tyson T-Bone and Saxon Huxley

* 205 Live Superstar Noam Dar cuts an in-ring promo and announces that his new home is with NXT UK. Good reaction for Dar. Mark Andrews interrupts and ended up laying Dar out with a superkick

* Kay Lee Ray defeated Candyfloss in a quick match

Episode 3:

* Eddie Dennis defeated Ligero

* Trent Seven and Tyler Bate come out for a quick promo to wake everyone up and to announce that they will be wrestling on Saturday's tapings

* Fabian Aichner and Marcel Barthel defeated Sam Stoker and Lewis Howley

* Kassius Ohno defeated Ashton Smith. Ohno got pops but tried to downplay them, the classic heel. After the win, Ohno attacked Smith and beat him up. This could air as the main event for the second episode, or not

* WWE UK Champion Pete Dunne and WALTER defeated Mark Coffey and Joe Coffey in the main event. Long match here but the crowd stayed hot. WALTER was busted open after a sequence with Mark I believe it was. After the match, WALTER put his boot on the WWE UK Title and prevented Dunne from picking it up. Dunne and WALTER had yet another staredown to end the tapings

So look's like Hero/Ohno is now going to be working in NXTUK.

Walter/Dunne will be insane at Takeover.

Will any other UK talent be on that show in anyone's opinion? Particularly hoping to see Moustache Mountain.

Two Debuts in toinght tapings:
Ilja Draganov and Viper (Piper Niven)

And BTW Viper and Rhea started Feud after Rhea beat Xia.

(So it means Rhea is staying on NXT UK after April as well and not going to NXT US?)

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:

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.

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.

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?

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 – who gets a great reaction in his home town – 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, it’s 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, don’t 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 Scotland’s 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 – 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 it’s 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.

That’s 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.
