NXT UK aired yet another episode earlier today. Here’s the latest in the build to NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool II.
- NXT’s Kona Reeves starts things off, saying that he was providing real talent to “NXT’s ugly crooked tooth little sister.” Trent Seven comes out to meet Reeves, which leads to a match. After a back and forth, Seven hits Reeves with a Burning Hammer for the 1-2-3
- Jack Starz takes on A-Kid in a quick match. After surviving a pair of European uppercuts, Kid wins with a backslide into a submission hold for a tapout.
- James Drake and Zack Gibson show up to claim that they’re the #1 contenders to the tag team championships. They hope to become the first two time champs in the brand’s history and restore prestige to the championships.

- In the main event, Ilja Dragunov battles Alexander Wolfe after a heated exchange earlier in the night. Dragunov looks like he’s got it with the Torpedo Moscow, but Wolfe counters and hits a sit-out powerbomb to claim victory. After the bell, Imperium attack Dragunov, and Gallus comes out to make the save. Both groups brawl and the show ends with Joe Coffey making moves towards WALTER’s title belt.
