‘WWE NXT: UK’ Review (Dec 17th 2020)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s NXT UK review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and I’m still here in the lair of Colack The Wicked and h… Colack: HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! Soon, you shall be…SHUNTED! HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!! Nathan: In about a day or so? Colack: Ye…that’s my line! Nathan: Just thought I’d help. Colack: Well, how about I help you?! Nathan: Okay! Let me go! Colack: Oh, sure. Just le…wait a minute! Nathan: Eh. I tried.

Match #1: Kay Lee Ray def. Isla Dawn

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Landing the same back suplex that she used for a recent win over Xia Brookside, Isla Dawn scored a near-fall against Kay Lee Ray. But The NXT UK Women’s Champion regained control with a tornado DDT before wearing The White Witch down with a Kojia Clutch. Blasting Dawn with a superkick, The Scary Queen of Scots put her foe away with a Gory Bomb for an impressive win.

My Opinion: 2.9 out of 5

Match #2: Jack Starz & Levi Muir def. Saxon Huxley in a Handicap Match

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

The unhinged Saxon Huxley pummeled Jack Starz until missing a big elbow drop, allowing Starz to tag in Levi Muir for a barrage of fiery uppercuts. Starz was eventually able to catch the much larger Huxley by surprise with a sunset flip, and with Muir’s help, scored a pinfall.

My Opinion: 2 out of 5

Match #3: Rampage Brown def. Josh Morrell

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Rampage Brown’s ruthless, smash-mouth style was on full display, as he elevated Josh Morrell seemingly to the rafters of BT Sport Studio with a jaw-dropping back body drop, then leveled him with a nasty facewash kick. The unstoppable onslaught continued with Brown adding a win to his unblemished resume following the Doctor Bomb.

My Opinion: 2.3 out of 5

Match #4: (Main Event) Gallus def. The Hunt w/Eddie Dennis – NXT UK Tag Title Match

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Once again showing a renewed aggression behind the leadership of Eddie Dennis, The Hunt were off to a quick start with The Welsh Dragon directing traffic at ringside. Primate & Wild Boar unleashed a cerebral assault while taking cues from their sinister handler, isolating Mark Coffey and dominating with frequent tags. Dennis’ involvement later became physical, as he prevent Wolfgang from delivering a potential slam to Wild Boar. But Gallus teammate Joe Coffey came to ringside and took down Dennis to even the odds. With the referee preoccupied with The Iron King, Mark Andrews and Flash Morgan Webster achieved a measure of retribution against The Hunt, knocking them both down from their perch on the top rope in the blink of an eye. Gallus followed by flattening Boar with an enziguri-powerslam combination for the win.

My Opinion: 3.4 out of 5

Final Verdict: 3.1/5

WALTER and A-Kid are on a collision course to battle over the NXT UK Title, while Trent Seven and Ilja Dragunov seek redemption in 2021. Those are the biggest pieces of news on a night where none of those people actually wrestled. The matches were what they were, but the show was fine overall, so I hold no grudge against lackluster when it is decent. Colack: Stop talking! You must retain energy for The Shunting! Nathan: Who cares? Colack: Y…you won’t be so snippy when The Collective comes for The Gathering… Nathan: I thought it was The Shunting? Colack: I…NXT UK was a 3.1 out of 5. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! I finished your review! Nathan: Thank you! Colack: I…shut up! Nathan: Well, I guess we’ll be here for 205 Live! See you then! Colack: You shall be Shunteddddddddddd!!!!!!!! Nathan: …and that…thing…yeah.
