‘WWE NXT: UK’ Review (Dec 10th 2020)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s NXT UK review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and don’t forget to wear a freakin’ blazer! On this episode of Numbley Gets Laid, Quatro and Meiko run up the white flag when trying to score with Valencia while Numbley and Cordelia screw in a broom closet. Hey, speaking of wonderful television, we have a major main event with A-Kid and Tyler Bate fighting over the Heritage Cup. Get ready to bone! NXT UK…walalalalalalalalalalalaalalalaagazoooooooozeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!

Match #1: Jordan Devlin def. Oliver Carter – NXT Cruiserweight Champion

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Oliver Carter answered the call in the first installment of Jordan Devlin’s NXT Cruiserweight Championship Open Challenge. Continuing to proclaim himself as the one “real” Cruiserweight Champion, The Irish Ace appeared almost indignant that anyone would dare challenge him and responded with ruthless intensity from the opening bell. Carter countered with his uncanny quickness, but suffered a devastating blow when Devlin upended him against the ropes, potentially injury his neck and inflicting damage that took a toll throughout the match. Devlin targeted the weakened area, hitting a poison rana and the Devlin Side to retain his title in hard-earned fashion.

My Opinion: 3.4 out of 5

Match #2: Xia Brookside def. Isla Dawn

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Like many of Xia Brookside’s opponents, Isla Dawn had difficulty accounting for her lightning-quick offense. Brookside controlled much of the bout until becoming preoccupied with suitcases left in the entranceway by a stagehand. Moments later, Nina Samuels — who left Brookside lying last month — appeared on the video board to declare that her foe is only worth of carrying her bags. That distraction proved decisive as Brookside turned into a huge kick and back suplex from Dawn, costing Brookside defeat.

My Opinion: 3 out of 5

Match #3: A-Kid def. Tyler Bate – NXT UK Heritage Champion

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

A-Kid would have been hard-pressed to find a more trying test for his first Heritage Cup defense. Tyler Bate a mentor to the young Spanish Superstar in many ways, fought his protégé to an evenly matched first two rounds with both men seemingly trying to avoid making a costly mistake. The Big Strong Boy got the better of a dazzling exchange of counters in Round 3, rolling up A-Kid for the bout’s first fall. Both Superstars unleashed hard-hitting strikes in the fourth round before A-Kid applied a Triangle submission, though Bate muscled out with a powerbomb as the round ended. A-Kid knotted the count in Round 5, pinning Bate following a spectacular springboard moonsault DDT. With little left in their tanks in the sixth and final round, A-Kid hit his patented step-up enziguri. While he wasn’t able to apply the same omoplata that brought him success throughout the Heritage Cup tournament, he pinned Bate with a roll-up combination to preserve the Cup.

My Opinion: 4.3 out of 5

Final Verdict: 4/5

Hell with it. This was good…both crotch parts good. Devlin, who probably wants to spank our asses for sick reasons, defended the Cruiserweight Title, even though he isn’t the cham…whatever. I’ve got a gang-bang to get to…at the church. Devlin’s match was smart and quick, but never not slick…dumb rhyming. Isla Dawn sounds like a feminist squadron in Vietnam. Xia did a fine job in acting like it was the Turks every time. You get to see A-Kid kick some ass Tyler Bate come back strong, like a child dropped down an elevator shaft. So much of the main event was just good, old fashioned wrestling and I liked it. I get tired of matches not feeling like sports contests, so this main event was a breath of fresh ass. Overall, this show was a case of good meeting great and it all coming off fine and dandy.
