WWE NXT UK SOUNDOFF – JANUARY 14, 2021

We are starting with being reminded of the NXT UK Championship Main Event tonight.

ED HARVEY/SHA SAMUELS VS. JOE COFFEY
Poor Ed Harvey. Not only does he not get an entrance in the slightest but he has to face Joe Coffey.
No Gallus with Joe Coffey for this one. They don’t even come out for the entrance.
Harvey is dishing out the trash talk as much as Joe Coffey at the start of this one.
Ed Harvey grabs a mic telling everyone he is Sha Samuels which is apparently his original ring name.
Samuels is dishing out a lot of offence in this one since changing his name mid-match.
Great spot with Sha Samuels catching Joe Coffey coming off the middle turnbuckle and slamming him but only gets a two count from it.
Loved Joe Coffey shouting My Kingdom while coming off the top for a cross body on Samuels.
Glasgow Send Off into the Forearm off the ropes for the pinfall victory for Joe Coffey. Nice opener and debut for Samuels/Harvey.

Earlier this week Sid Scala let a camera crew about the Tag Team Division but before he can say anything, Pretty Deadly walk in.
Scala says Pretty Deadly will face Carter/Smith, The Hunt and Webster/Andrews in a four way elimination match to determine the number 1 contenders.

We get another scene of Rampage Brown working out at the Performance center. It must be hard to work out with a camera following you every time.
Dave Mastiff takes over the weights that Rampage struggled with and starts talking to him and challenges him to a friendly match. Rampage agrees.

TYLER BATE VS. SAM GRADWELL
This may be the 80s Wrestling Kid in me, but does any one else love seeing the picture in picture promos that NXT UK like to use as of late?
I’m really impressed with how much personality Gradwell has. I can’t say he is the greatest in the ring but he really knows how to show a good character at all times.
Does the referee actually think Gradwell isn’t able to hear him? Everyone in the arena can hear the referee, Gradwell just doesn’t care.
Nice impressive spot with Bate being able to catch, carry and suplex Gradwell in one go.
Tyler Driver from Bate and he is able to get the pinfall victory in a really good competitive match.

Earlier this week segment with Sid Scala letting Carter and Smith know they are in the Four Way match in two weeks.

Another earlier this week at the performance center with Ilja Dragunov talking to Jack Starz. He says that he needs to start from the beginning and he wants to face Jack since it was he was his first match in NXT UK.

Jinny is coming out next with Joseph Conners at her side. I do like when male wrestlers act to female wrestlers like it usually is for the reverse. Kaleb with a K with Tenille is another great example.
Jinny starts by letting us know the Conners associated with her because she has wealth which brings Power which brings connections.
Kay Lee Ray makes her way out with a pace to her step to answer Jinny claiming she is going to win next week.
Jinny says the only thing funny is that KLR is representing this brand and the women’s division.
Kay Lee Ray says there isn’t enough money to fix Jinny’s face when she is done with it.
Conners settles Jinny down and Jinny tells KLR to enjoy the belt because she has only a week left with it. Great segment but they are my two favourite in the division.

Video promo from Eddie Dennis and The Hunt about their match in two weeks and how they are not happy with how Andrews and Flash caused them the titles.

WALTER VS. A-KID – NXT UK CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
They have the Heritage Cup on a table in the spot it was during the tournament all lit up. Not sure if the Cup is on the line but will see soon if they use the Heritage Cup rules or not.
It is announced as for one fall and only for the NXT UK Championship. I guess they don’t want to combine the championships at this point.
Walter not too happy with the strong kicks from A-Kid so far causing him to throw a few strong shots of his own.
Amazing booking having A-Kid just blast the leg of Walter with the Kicks allowing A-Kid to gain advantages without having complete control.
What a chop by Walter that felt and sounded like it went through the chest of A-Kid.
Give Andy and Nigel credit for pointing out how this is A-Kid’s first regular match in a while and doesn’t have the advantages he had in the Heritage Cup Rules matches.
A-Kid is being made to look strong here but Walter is not being buried either.
That flying drop kick by Walter was a thing of beauty made even better by the selling from A-Kid.
After a vicious lariat, Walter gets a pinfall victory over A-Kid in an amazing back and forth match. Both men are spent after the match.
