Flash Morgan Webster def. Fabian Aichner
It was two weeks ago on the show that Aichner made his NXT UK debut and beat Webster's friend Mark Andrews. Thus, Webster wanted to try his hand at avenging Andrews' loss to Aichner this week. Aichner once again proved why he is the real deal while Webster scored plenty of offense and had a solid showing as well. Aichner showed plenty of aggression down the stretch, but before he could put Webster away the same way he did Andrews, Andrews emerged at ringside and allowed Webster to pick up the victory. I'm not a fan of Aichner losing so early into his run on the brand, but at least it keeps the feud alive.
Isla Dawn def. Charlie Morgan
As I mentioned the last time she was in action, I'm still not sold on Dawn. She seems to have the crowd behind her (though I have no clue whether she's supposed to be a babyface or a heel) and she is a perfectly competent competitor in the ring, but nothing about her so far has stood out to me as special. This outing, while fine, was no different. Afterward, she called out NXT UK Women's Champion Rhea Ripley and announced her intentions to take her title.
Zack Gibson and James Drake def. Kenny Williams and Amir Jordan
Williams and Jordan are much better off together than apart, as their styles complement each other well and are a blast to watch. Gibson and Drake have been a very good tandem thus far as well and this turned into quite the enjoyable encounter. It had a nice pace and everyone had their time to shine at one point or another. Gibson and Drake are certainly in the running to become the inaugural NXT UK Tag Team Champions.
Joe Coffey def. Trent Seven
These guys were given an ample amount of time in the main event spot and more than made the most of it by contesting an exhilarating outing. The crowd was electric for everything they did and it had a big fight feel to it. Despite Seven's best efforts, it wasn't enough for him to overcome Gallus' Coffey. That was the right result considering Gallus recently suffered a setback at the hands of Travis Banks and this got them back on track.
The all-new NXT UK Tag Team Championship were unveiled at the start of the show and look absolutely stunning. I don't how the first-ever tag team champs are going to be decided, but hopefully we'll find out soon. As for the rest of the show, the main event was excellent stuff and easily the best thing all night. The other three matches were well-wrestled, making it an entertaining hour of wrestling on the whole. Additionally, next week's edition of NXT UK will see "Bomber" Dave Mastiff take on fellow undefeated star Eddie Dennis.
