KENNY WILLIAMS VS. FINN BALOR – MARCH 7, 2020
This was meant to be the build up of Finn’s match and feud with Walter.
Trash talking from Finn while holding Kenny Williams in the headlock that leads to Kenny’s comeback with a nice springing kick off the second rope.
Balor not looking impressed with the ref laying down the law with him leading to Balor deliberately going to the four count from the ref in his next series of kicks to Williams in the ropes.
Fans chant that Balor killed Kenny after a sick move that made Finn mention all the people he has beat and said he is also going to kill Walter.
Fans started chanting that Walter was going to kill Balor getting another reaction from Balor.
Kenny starts to gain the advantage again after Balor cared too much about the crowd.
Williams didn’t do the best spring back using the ropes.
Kenny Williams able to get a two count after a couple moves to the outside.
Balor calls out Walter before hitting his DDT on Williams and getting the pinfall victory.
NINA SAMUELS VS. RHEA RIPLEY – OCTOBER 5, 2019
This is right at the height of Rhea’s character in my opinion as once she left for NXT her character has lost a lot of momentuem, in my eyes.
There are a lot of Theatre references in this match even with Nina Samuels’ character.
Nina has a great presence and charisma so when her in ring work hits the next level there could be no stopping where she goes.
Nina gets some spots in but Rhea gets the riptide in and gets the pinfall win.
KILLIAN DAIN VS. TRAVIS BANKS – JUNE 16, 2019
Been so long that it just seems weird to see Dain looking like an actual wrestler with his gear seeming almost normal.
Banks’ kicks seem to actually recharge Killian Dain leading to him powerslamming Travis Banks.
Great that they are letting Dain add more technical stuff to balance his power game.
Is there ever a match with Travis Banks where he is not selling some sort of injury? He wrestles like he is always fighting Nia Jax.
Only a two count after the cross body Divide move by Killian Dain.
Like how Banks pulls off a double stomp in the corner as it looks a lot more realistic than those terrible hanging in place spots.
Vader Bomb from Killian Dain to get the pinfall victory.
ZACK GIBSON, JAMES DRAKE & JOSEPH CONNORS VS. ANGELO DAWKINS, MONTEZ FORD & MATT RIDDLE – JULY 19, 2019
Never going to complain hearing from the Grizzled Young Veterans and Joseph Connors. They should be the NXT Tag Team Champions if not for the pandemic.
First time I have actually heard Zack Gibson talk about the Shoes Off chant.
Commercial Break before James Drake can speak.
Gallus video promo before coming back to Connors with the mic asking for the best in the world and enter the smoke with the NXT Tag Team Champions (at the time) Street Profits.
Montez Ford is money on the mic and he is going to introduce their partner but he has to call him, hit Matt Riddle’s music.
Riddle must not lake Gibson as he took his slippers off.
The Street Profits seem to be enjoying the crowd reactions in the UK.
Glad they made the Street Profits grab on to the tag ropes. The small things go a long way.
Connor able to scramble to get the tag as Riddle trying to get submissions on, repeats the same thing with Gibson and Drake comes in and is in an ankle lock until the Street Profits come in.
Montez Ford has JUST taken his hoodie and his shirt off.
Great double team from the Grizzled Young Veterans on the outside on Ford.
Ford is being worked over by the NXT UK Tag Champs and Connors.
By enforcing the tag rope rule the heels were able to force Dawkins back to his corner and not help pump up his partner being worked over in the ring.
Like that Connors started to sit down when the fans did their “If You Hate Gibson Stand Up.”
After a miscue from the NXT UK Tag Team Champions, Ford was able to get the hot tag in to Dawkins.
Nice doomsday device variation from Riddle and Dawkins with Riddle doing a knee off the top instead of the clothesline.
Really like that Ford was able to tag Dawkins on his way over the top rope to the outside.
Matt Riddle is able to hit the Bro Derek and get the pinfall win on Joseph Connors.
