Match #1: Ilja Dragunov vs. Dave Mastiff (no-contest)

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Last week, Ilja Dragunov was quite intrigued when “Bomber” Dave Mastiff approached him in the backstage area and presented him with an idea: the two Superstars blow off some steam by trading haymakers in a wild brawl. Dragunov was quick to take up Mastiff on his request. The bout came to a sudden halt, however, when Dragunov struck Mastiff in the nose with a vicious right elbow strike, leapt onto his back and began raining down elbows to his face. “Bomber” countered by dropping his opponent back-first into the canvas, but the official soon caught a glimpse of Mastiff’s injury and called for the bell.

The Score: 3 out of 10

Match #2: Trent Seven def. Saxon Huxley

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

In recent months, The Don cut significant weight to challenge then-NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin and reformed Moustache Mountain for a victorious in-ring reunion with Tyler Bate. For his latest accomplishment, Seven somehow picked up a win against the dangerous Saxon Huxley while being ridiculed by Sam Gradwell from the Tron. Gradwell attempted to provoke his newfound rival by asking him how it felt to drop all that weight and still fail, but Seven shook off the distraction by folding Huxley with a snap dragon suplex and clobbering him with the Seven Stars Lariat to earn the win.

The Score: 5 out of 10

Match #3: (Main Event) Kenny Williams def. Amir Jordan – Loser Leaves NXT UK Match

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

After battling alongside Amir Jordan for nearly three years and finally earning an NXT UK Tag Team Championship Match with his partner, Kenny Williams threw it all away in the middle of their first-ever title bout when he struck his supposed friend in the back with one of the championships last month. With Jordan and Williams hungry to tear each other limb from limb, a barbaric No Disqualification Loser Leaves NXT UK Match was seemingly the only option. The lawless bout featured Williams mangling Jordan’s already injured shoulder with savage kicks, spraying his eyes with a fire extinguisher and back suplexing him through a table. Williams even tied Jordan in the ropes, told him that “I’ve always hated your guts” and attempted to attack him with a wrench before Jordan fought free. Jordan answered by suplexing his nemesis on the exposed ringside concrete and repeatedly slamming Williams’ face into a steel chair while telling him “this is what happens to scumbags.” However, Williams earned the win after dropping Jordan onto the exposed steel turnbuckle and driving him face-first into a steel chair to banish Jordan from NXT UK. Williams mocked his former ally and exited as the emotion poured out of Jordan back in the ring.

The Score: 7 out of 10

Final Verdict: 6/10

This was all about watching Amir Jordan get fired on his birthday. Kenny and Amir had a good fight that was pumped full of hot-boiled burnin’ octane. Hot-boiled? F—k that’s stupid. Eh. It fills space. Amir looked excellent in loss and Kenny gets a major victory for his career. If he’s smart, he’ll latch onto ending the Amir run and go nuts with it. As for the rest for the show, it was business as usual. Nothing wrong with business as usual, but when usual is a bit dull, you need to push it and, besides the main event, this show was dull. Well, I’m really Christina Ricci. I’ll see you next time.
