NXT Coverage: Bate Retains UK Championship
Although there were just three matches, Tyler Bate’s defense of the WWE UK Championship, a Kassius Ohno vignette and plenty of competition in the WOmen’s and Tag Team Divisions were more than enough to deliver an enjoyable hour of wrestling.
NXT Tag Team Champions The Authors of Pain: Akam and Rezar w/Paul Ellering vs. Garriston Spear and Lance Anoa’i: A complete squash as TAOP hit the Russian Leg Sweep/Clothesline for the win before decimating both opponents after the match.
Peyton Royce and Billie Kay vs. Liv Morgan and Ember Moon: Royce and Kay got the win with the assisted Running Knee on Morgan. While Moon and Morgan were a good combination, Royce and Kay are just better.
WWE United Kingdom Champion Tyler Bate vs. Trent Seven: Bate got the win with the Tyler Driver 97, but Seven nearly won with the Seven Star Lariat. A wonderful match, this is a feud that could definitely continue once UK programming gets underway on the WWE Network.
