NXT UK Episode 3 and 4 Reviews: Pain and Betrayal

Published

on

NXT UK Episode 3 and 4 were good shows. This show was a showcase of the best UK wrestlers in the world as they compete to see who is the best in the UK. I’ll be reviewing both episodes into one review. Let’s break it down:


Episode 3 starts off the show with Trent Seven Vs. Saxton Huxley and it was a good match. As Saxon Huxley made his entrance from the ring, we see a video promo from him saying that he has improved a lot since the first WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament and will plan to make a name for himself in NXT UK.

Saxon Huxley is a part of NXT UK! Mark out moment! Saxon Huxley competed in last year’s WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament and now he’s a part of NXT UK so I’m happy for him as he did well in this match against Trent Seven.

Saxon Huxley did well in this match as he tried to make a name for himself in NXT UK. His cobra clutch on Trent Seven looked devastating. Trent Seven did well in this match as he tried to get a win on NXT UK. His Seven Stars (Wrist-lock transitioned into a lariat) on Saxon Huxley was well executed. Good work by both men here.

The ending of the match came when Trent Seven hit Saxon Huxley with a reverse Death Valley Driver for the pin and win. A good win for Trent Seven as he looks to make a name for himself in NXT UK. *Twists moustache*

Good match and I’m interested to see what’s next for Trent Seven and Saxon Huxley in NXT UK.

We then get a vignette of Coffey Brothers and it was good. Nice to see NXT UK highlighting Coffey Brothers as I can see them being the first ever NXT UK Tag Team Champions, but only time will tell.

The backstage interview with “Flash” Morgan Webster by Radzi Chinyanganya was good. “Flash” Morgan Webster talked about his game plan against Mark Coffey is to be who he is in the ring as that is to be a mod. He then said that he will teach Coffey Brothers a lesson and that In Mod We Trust.

“Flash” Morgan Webster is looking to get some retribution on Mark Coffey, but we’ll see if he’s successful or not. Good backstage interview here.

“Flash” Morgan Webster Vs. Mark Coffey was a good match. Mark Coffey made his in-ring debut on NXT UK! Mark out moment! Nice to see Mark Coffey finally in action and he did well against “Flash” Morgan Webster. Joe Coffey was at ringside to support Mark Coffey in this match.

Mark Coffey did well in this match as he tried to get a win over “Flash” Morgan Webster. His vertical suplex on “Flash” Morgan Webster was well executed. His forearm smash on “Flash” Morgan Webster looked devastating. “Flash” Morgan Webster did well in this match too as he tried to get revenge on Mark Coffey for attacking him at the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament. His hurricanrana on Mark Coffey from the ring apron to the floor was beautifully executed. Good work by both men here.

The ending of the match came when “Flash” Morgan Webster rolled up Mark Coffey with a crucifix pin for the win. A good win for “Flash” Morgan Webster as he got some revenge on Coffey Brothers.

After the match, Joe Coffey came in the ring and beat down “Flash” Morgan Webster as Mark Coffey joined in as Mark Andrews and Travis Banks came out and entered the ring as Coffey Brothers retreated.

It looks like Coffey Brothers have a lot of enemies to deal with. We’ll see how that will work out for them when they have to deal with three men.

Good match and good post-match as I’m looking forward to what happens next in this feud between “Flash” Morgan Webster, Mark Andrews, Travis Banks, and Coffey Brothers.

We then get a vignette of Danny Burch and Sam Gradwell and it was good. Danny Burch talked about how he has worked fifteen years to hold his craft and if that no one takes him seriously in the ring, he will beat them down. Sam Gradwell talked about how he changed a lot since the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament and that he’s here to not make classic matches, but to make statements.

This is the part where I will mark out for the return of Sam Gradwell, but I will do that later as I’m looking forward to the match between Danny Burch and Sam Gradwell which should be good.

We then get a vignette of Jinny and it was good. Jinny is going to be a part of NXT UK going forward! Mark out moment! She appeared in the Mae Young Classic and now she’s going to be in NXT UK in the future where I’m looking forward to her debut.

Danny Burch Vs. Sam Gradwell was a good match. Danny Burch has made his in-ring debut on NXT UK and Sam Gradwell is a part of NXT UK going forward! Mark out moment for both! Nice to see these two here in NXT UK as they put on a good match.

Sam Gradwell did well in this match as he tried to make a statement in NXT UK. His uppercut on Danny Burch looked devastating. Danny Burch did well in this match too as he tried to make a name for himself in NXT UK. His headbutt on Sam Gradwell looked he knocked out Sam Gradwell for a moment there. Good work by both men here.

The ending of the match came when Danny Burch hit Sam Gradwell with a rope hung DDT for the pin and win. A good win for Danny Burch as he looks to rise up in the NXT UK ranks.

After the match, Radzi Chinyanganya entered the ring and interviewed Danny Burch about performing in the UK as Danny Burch said that he’s proud and happy that he’s in the UK because this is his home. He then said that he went to compete around the world for fifteen years in order to earn respect inside the ring. He then said that it’s not about respect anymore in his career as he’s looking to become WWE United Kingdom Champion and he wants a shot at the title so he challenged Pete Dunne for a title match and if Pete Dunne accepts, he’ll be there waiting for him.

Danny Burch is laying out a challenge to Pete Dunne for the WWE United Kingdom Championship. We’ll see if Pete Dunne accepts the match.

Good match and good post-match promo as I’m looking forward to the potential WWE United Kingdom Championship match between Pete Dunne and Danny Burch.

We then see Zack Gibson and Noam Dar warming up backstage as they’re getting ready for their match next. Both men are looking to win, but only one can walk out the victor. We’ll see who that person is.

We then get a vignette of Jordan Devlin and it was good. Jordan Devlin talked about how he’s one of the rising stars in the UK wrestling scene as he has it all and it’s only a matter of time for him to show the world that the United Kingdom will soon be the Kingdom of Jordan Devlin.

Jordan Devlin is looking to make a name for himself in NXT UK as he’s coming to NXT UK next week. Looking forward to his NXT UK debut next week.

We then get an announcement that next week, it will be Travis Banks Vs. Wolfgang. Should be an interesting match next week. Looking forward to it.

Noam Dar Vs. Zack Gibson was an excellent match. Mark out moment! This match was made last week by Johnny Saint and it was excellent as both men gave everything they have in this match to become the winner.

Noam Dar did excellent in this match as he tried to get a win over Zack Gibson. His running dropkick to Zack Gibson’s knee while using the stage ramp looked devastating. His diving double foot stomp on the leg of Zack Gibson looked painful as heck. Excellent work by Noam Dar here.

Zack Gibson did excellent in this match as well as he tried to get a win over Noam Dar. His diving double knee facebreaker from the middle rope on Noam Dar was well executed. His powerbomb on Noam Dar on the stage ramp looked like it killed Noam Dar. Excellent work by Zack Gibson here.

The ending of the match came when Zack Gibson hit Noam Dar with Helter Skelter (Cradled corkscrew brainbuster) for the pin and win. A great win for Zack Gibson as he looks to stand on top of the ranks in NXT UK. Liverpool’s No. 1!

Excellent match and I can’t wait to see what’s next for Noam Dar and Zack Gibson in NXT UK.


Episode 4 starts off with Moustache Mountain Vs. Sam Gradwell & Saxon Huxley and it was a good tag team match. This was a match as it showcased both teams pretty well.

Sam Gradwell & Saxon Huxley did well in this match as they develop a good chemistry with each other in the ring. The way Saxon Huxley pushed Trent Seven out of the ring looked painful as heck. Moustache Mountain did well in this match too as they show why they are one of the best tag teams in the UK wrestling scene today. The over the top rope dive from Tyler Bate on Sam Gradwell and Saxon Huxley to the outside was beautifully executed. Good work by both teams here.

The ending of the match came when Moustache Mountain hit Sam Gradwell with the rebound clothesline/dragon suplex combination for the pin and win. A good win for Moustache Mountain as they plan to become the first ever NXT UK Tag Team Champions. *Twists moustache*

Good tag team match and I’m interested to see which team will be the first NXT UK Tag Team Champions.

We then see backstage that Travis Banks was taken out as Johnny Saint and referees checked on him. Dang, it looks like someone took out Travis Banks backstage. I wonder if he will compete in the main event against Wolfgang, but only time will tell.

We then get a vignette of Isla Dawn and it was good. Isla Dawn talked about how she’s not like other wrestlers and that she will take anyone that steps in her way.

Isla Dawn is looking to make a statement in the NXT UK Women’s division and I’m looking for her in-ring debut for NXT UK coming up next.

We then get another vignette of Jinny and it was good. Looking forward to the debut of Jinny in NXT UK. I can’t wait.

The backstage segment between Johnny Saint and Mark Andrews by Radzi Chinyanganya was good. Radzi Chinyanganya was trying to interview Johnny Saint about the attack on Travis Banks and Johnny Saint was about to answer until Mark Andrews showed up and told Johnny Saint that he saw what happened to Travis Banks and as a result, he wants to face Wolfgang later on the show as Mark Andrews left while Johnny Saint think about it.

It looks like Mark Andrews want to face Wolfgang later on the show as Travis Banks looks to be out of action. We’ll see what Johnny Saint will do. Good backstage segment here.

Isla Dawn Vs. Nina Samuels was a good women’s match. This was a good women’s match that showcased both women pretty well.

Nina Samuels did well in this match as she tried to get a win over Isla Dawn. Her Irish whip to Isla Dawn to the corner looked it hurt Isla Dawn’s shoulder there. Isla Dawn did well in this match too as she tried to make a first impression in her NXT UK in-ring debut. Her roundhouse kick to the back of Nina Samuels’ head looked devastating. Good work by both women here.

The ending of the match came when Isla Dawn hit Nina Samuels with a gutwrench suplex for the pin and win. A good win for Isla Dawn as she plans to rise in the NXT UK Women’s division.

Good women’s match and I’m interested to see what’s next for Isla Dawn in NXT UK.

The sit-down interview with Pete Dunne by Radzi Chinyanganya was good. Radzi Chinyanganya asked Pete Dunne on how he feels about WWE United Kingdom Champion as Pete Dunne said that he’s been developing his craft for twelve years and he’s proud to be WWE United Kingdom Champion. Radzi Chinyanganya then asked Pete Dunne on how felt with Danny Burch challenging him to a WWE United Kingdom Championship match as Pete Dunne said that Danny Burch is talented, but he’s nowhere near the level of him and he will beat and retain his WWE United Kingdom Championship.

Radzi Chinyanganya then asked Pete Dunne on how he felt with Danny Burch saying he is British Strong Style while Pete Dunne was still a child as Pete Dunne said that Danny Burch may be British Strong Style, but he perfected it. Radzi Chinyanganya then asked Pete Dunne on how he will be prepared for Danny Burch as Pete Dunne said that he’s prepared, but he wants to know if Danny Burch is prepared because he’s going to hurt him and retain the WWE United Kingdom Championship.

Pete Dunne is looking to make a statement against Danny Burch in their upcoming WWE United Kingdom Championship match, but we’ll see if Pete Dunne can take down Danny Burch when they face off. Good sitdown interview here.

We then get a vignette of Jordan Devlin as he will be up in action next. Looking forward to the NXT UK in-ring debut of Jordan Devlin. Let’s get to it.

The vignette of Eddie Dennis was good. Eddie Dennis talked about how Mark Andrews and Pete Dunne left him to achieve their dreams while he ended up becoming the youngest principal in the school he was teaching in. He then talked about how he was sick and tired of Mark Andrews and Pete Dunne being on top of wrestling where he should be with them as he quit his job and became a professional wrestler. He then talked about how Mark Andrews and Pete Dunne got signed first, but Eddie Dennis didn’t get signed until after he was recovered from injury. He then said that Mark Andrews and Pete Dunne may have built the NXT UK division, but it involves all around him.

Eddie Dennis is looking to make a name for himself without Mark Andrews and Pete Dunne as he plans to debut in NXT UK next week. We’ll see how Eddie Dennis does on his own and I’m looking forward to his NXT UK next week.

Tucker Vs. Jordan Devlin was a great match. This was a great match that showcased both men pretty well.

Tucker did great in this match as he tried to get a win over Jordan Devlin. His Sling Blade on Jordan Devlin was well executed and his slingshot spinning reverse STO on Jordan Devlin was well executed. Jordan Devlin did great in this match as he tried to show that he’s not just a student of Finn Balor and is his own man. The uranage followed by the standing moonsault by Jordan Devlin was a nice combination.

The ending of the match came when Jordan Devlin hit Tucker with a sitdown Michinoku Driver for the pin and win. A good win for Jordan Devlin as he plans to step out of the shadow of being Finn Balor’s student.

Great match and I’m interested to see what’s next for Jordan Devlin in NXT UK.

We then get an announcement that in two weeks, it will be Dakota Kai Vs. Toni Storm. That should be a great match and I’m looking forward to watching it.

The sit-down interview with Danny Burch by Radzi Chinyanganya was good. Radzi Chinyanganya asked Danny Burch if he’s prepared for Pete Dunne as Danny Burch said that he is prepared because no matter how many times he falls, he always gets back up and keeps going and he plans to do that against Pete Dunne for the WWE United Kingdom Championship. Radzi Chinyanganya then asked Danny Burch on what is his game plan going against Pete Dunne as Danny Burch said that Pete Dunne is very versatile in the ring and despite that, he’s going to do what he does best and that is his striking.

Radzi Chinyanganya then asked Danny Burch on what he will do to Pete Dunne as Danny Burch said that he will take Pete Dunne to the limit and beat him in order to become WWE United Kingdom Champion. Radzi Chinyanganya then finally asked what Danny Burch will do if he wins the WWE United Kingdom Championship as Danny Burch said that when he wins the WWE United Kingdom Championship, then he’ll talk about it.

Danny Burch is planning to win the WWE United Kingdom Championship, but he has a tough challenge ahead of him as he goes up against Pete Dunne. We’ll see if Danny Burch can beat Pete Dunne to become WWE United Kingdom Champion. Good sitdown interview here.

We then get an announcement that next week, it will be Pete Dunne Vs. Danny Burch for the WWE United Kingdom Championship. Should be an awesome match next week and I can’t wait to watch it.

Mark Andrews Vs. Wolfgang was an excellent match. Mark out moment! Due to Travis Banks being taken out backstage earlier in the show, Mark Andrews took his place and it was excellent.

Wolfgang did excellent in this match as he tried to get a win over Mark Andrews.

Mark Andrews did excellent in this match as he tried to get a win for his friend, Travis Banks.

The ending of the match came when Mark Andrews hit Wolfgang with a shooting star press for the pin and win. A great win for Mark Andrews as he plans to get a future shot at the WWE United Kingdom Championship.

After the match, Mark Andrews extended his hand to Wolfgang and Wolfgang ended up shaking his hand. Wolfgang then left the ring, but Coffey Brothers entered the ring and took out Mark Andrews.

Wolfgang was about to help Mark Andrews, but then “Flash” Morgan Webster came in the ring and brawled with Coffey Brothers before he was taken down as well. Wolfgang then entered the ring as Coffey Brothers retreated as Wolfgang helped get “Flash” Morgan Webster up to his feet, but ended up hitting “Flash” Morgan Webster with a lariat. Wolfgang then continued to beat down Wolfgang until Coffey Brothers came in and helped Wolfgang beat him down. Coffey Brothers then grabbed Mark Andrews and threw him to Wolfgang as Wolfgang hit Mark Andrews with a pop-up powerslam as they stood tall over Mark Andrews and “Flash” Morgan Webster.

Well, it looks like Wolfgang is a heel now and is joining forces with Coffey Brothers. They would make an interesting faction and now it’s three on three where a feud between Mark Andrews, Travis Banks, “Flash” Morgan Webster, Wolfgang, and Coffey Brothers should be very interesting.

Excellent match and great post-match as I’m interested to see in this feud between Mark Andrews, Travis Banks, “Flash” Morgan Webster, Wolfgang, and Coffey Brothers in NXT UK.

Overall, good shows for Episode 3 and 4 that showcased the talents of the UK wrestlers. I’m glad that NXT UK is finally on the WWE Network and I can’t wait to see more of it. NXT! NXT! NXT! UK! UK! UK! UK!
