‘NXT: UK’ Review (May 29th 2019)

by Nathan Favel


Welcome to this week’s NXT: UK review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have a big title match for the main event. I’m already liking this better than Raw or Smackdown.

Match #1: Mark Coffey & Wolfgang def. Carlos Romo & A-Kid

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Gallus took another huge step on their continued quest for dominance, as Mark Coffey’s hard kick set up Wolfgang’s devastating powerslam to give the duo a decisive win over Carlos Romo & A-Kid.

My Opinion: 2.5 out of 5 – This was fun for what it was. The action was just fine for the time given and that isn’t a bad thing at all.

Match #2: Kassius Ohno def. Gentleman Jack Gallagher

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

After voicing his resentment to Assistant to the General Manager Sid Scala over not receiving a Qualifying Match for the Fatal 4-Way to determine the No. 1 Contender to WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER, Kassius Ohno has been given the opportunity to prove his greatness against Gentleman Jack Gallagher. Although his bout against Gallagher began as a classic technical encounter, Ohno soon incorporated the full extent of his brutality into the match in order to win at any cost. Ohno punctuated his onslaught by drilling Gentleman Jack with a vicious Rolling Elbow to do just that. Although Gallagher’s leg was under the rope during the three-count, the official did not see it, and the fierce competitor walked away with the victory.

My Opinion: 3 out of 5 – This was some good stuff. Ohno and Gallagher have a lot of natural chemistry together that makes their matches very easy to watch, so having them in the same match works out quite well. Overall, this was a clever little bout that covered a lot of ground in a decent amount of time.

Match #3: (Main Event) Toni Storm def. Nina Samuels to retain the NXT UK Women’s Championship

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Fired up after Nina Samuels recently suggested that she abandoned her struggling single mother and sister to follow her own dream, NXT UK Women’s Champion Toni Storm exploded out of the starting gates in her title bout against the outspoken challenger. Samuels took the titleholder to the limit in a hard-fought encounter and scored the nearest of falls with a devastating Tilt-a-Wheel backbreaker and a devastating dropkick off the top rope, but the resilient Storm battled back and tattooed her opponent with Storm Zero to once again stand tall.

My Opinion: 3 out of 5 – I thought this turned pretty well. Toni did as well as usual, with a well-rounded way of wrestling being her best asset. Nina was convincing as the challenger and made for a proper opponent. Toni was still the best choice to win the match regardless, so the right outcome occurred. Overall, this worked as a main event and as a title match.

News Of The Night:

  1. Imperium brawled with British Strong Style to officially establish their feud.

Final Verdict: 3/5

This turned out very well in a very simple manner. The card provided a few nice matches and the show was assembled coherently. This was also better than Raw or Smackdown.
