We hear the music of the REAL NXT Cruiserweight Champion, Jordan Devlin, and he is coming out likely to cut a promo seeing as he is in street clothes.
He says being the longest champion is not enough and wants to be the greatest. Before he can continue Trent Seven’s music hits and he comes out.
Seven says that everything he has said is fact. Trent Seven says he is going to trim down as he needs a challenge and he will step up and challenge Devlin.
Devlin says IF, big IF, he loses the weight, he can have a shot. After tapping the belly of Seven and trying to leave Trent grabs his arm and knocks him across the jaw.
Seven steps on the Cruiserweight title as Devlin tries to pull it out of the ring to send a message. Looking forward to this program.
Backstage, Eddie Dennis is getting The Hunt excited for their match tonight in the main event.
Video package with Kay Lee Ray saying she wants the best in the world and we see footage of Meiko Satomura who is coming to NXT UK.
BEN CARTER VS. SAM GRADWELL
Gradwell comes out with a microphone talking about how Jersey, where Ben Carter is from, is not really part of the UK.
Really starting to get on the Sam Gradwell train. Guy has some good skills in the ring and has one of those good heel personalities.
Gradwell is controlling the match and showcasing his power and Carter’s selling ability.
Carter fires up after he appears to have had his hair pulled out. He hits a Tope Suicida on Gradwell. Gradwell rolls to the other side of the ring after being thrown in from Carter and Carter hits a great dive over the top rope.
Frog Splash from Ben Carter and he gets the pinfall victory. Really good opener match.
We see Andrews and Webster getting ready before we see Noam Dar talking to Sha Samuels before his match.
Smith and Carter are now being seeing getting ready as they are the fourth team in the elimination tag main event.
JOSH MORRELL VS. SHA SAMUELS
Any bets on whether he changes his name during this match like his last match against Joe Coffey?
Loved that Nigel McGuiness was asked about having to change a name coming in to a company and even talking about his match with Kurt Angle. Did everything but say TNA or Desmond Wolfe.
Match seems to be booked to make Sha look like he’s all braun and little brain.
Some nice moves from Jobber Morrell in this one including a standing spinning moonsault.
Spinebuster from Sha Samuels before putting Morrell in his GatorLock type submission to get the quick tap out for a victory.
Ilja Dragunov is seen doing pushups earlier this week before being asked about what happened in his match against Jack Starz last week.
He says he doesn’t know, he didn’t want to hurt Jack. Sam Gradwell walks by saying he is a madman.
Rampage is being interviewed backstage when Gallus walk by. Brown says Coffey can have a match with him if he needs to line something up. Joe says he may take him up on that.
FLASH MORGAN WEBSTER & MARK ANDREWS VS. PRETTY DEADLY (LEWIS HOWLEY & SAM STOKER) VS. THE HUNT (PRIMATE & WILD BOAR) VS. OLIVER CARTER & ASHTON SMITH – FOUR TEAM ELIMINATION TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP NUMBER ONE CONTENDERS MATCH
No Eddie Dennis coming out with The Hunt as he has been banned from Ringside.
Always love the dynamic of multi team elimination matches as Pretty Deadly tags themselves in to get the pin but tagging right back out after only getting a two count.
Carter and Smith hit their version of the Silly String made famous by Private Party.
Nice spot with Pretty Deadly being forced in the match and everyone backing away from their attempts to tag another team in.
Love the shots of Gallus watching on at the stage.
Carter looks like he hit his head coming off the top to land on the crowd at ringside.
Wild Boar is taken out by Webster and Morgan so Smith and Carter can take out Primate and eliminate The Hunt.
The Hunt are having to be forced away by extra officials as they don’t want to leave.
Smith stops Howley with the cheapshot allowing them to double team Stoker but only a two count from Carter.
After a flurry of offense, Flash pins Smith to eliminate Carter and Smith leaving just Pretty Deadly and Flash & Andrews.
Pretty Deadly are going after the bum knee of Mark Andrews. Stoker even spins Andrews around holding only to the bad leg before going into a single leg crab.
Eddie Dennis behind the back of the ref hits Mark Andrews in the knee with a chair before disappearing again.
Andrews is down and Pretty Deadly get the pinfall victory to become the number 1 contenders to Gallus and their Tag Team Championships.
Post match, stare down with Pretty Deadly and Joe Coffey all alone as Mark and Wolfie come out to the entrance way for a better stare down.
