NXT UK Women's Champion Kay Lee Ray def. Dani Luna (Non-Title)
Ray interrupted Luna's match with Amale last week and attacked her afterward, setting the stage for them to do battle here. Luna never stood a chance, of course, but at least she scored some offense before falling to Ray. It was a fine match while it lasted and Ray went over in dominant fashion. Piper Niven made the save for Luna post-match, so look for Niven vs. Ray for the NXT UK Women's Championship to be added to TakeOver: Dublin (whenever it happens, that is).
Ridge Holland def. Joseph Conners
Holland has been squashing local athletes since his debut several months ago, so it was about time he was presented with an actual challenge. This was a perfectly solid match, and while not the flashiest, Holland once again had an impressive outing and went over as he should have. I guess this means Conners' push is over and you won't hear a single complaint out of me.
Kassius Ohno def. Kenny Williams
As I've said several times before, Ohno's heel run has been a blast in NXT UK and especially in recent weeks. Williams didn't stand a chance against him, but he gave it a good effort nonetheless and they had a quality contest. That roaring elbow from Ohno at the end looked absolutely brutal. I'm interested to see who he feuds with next since he's already beaten/faced most of the brand's babyfaces.
Gallus (Joe Coffey and NXT UK Tag Team Champions Wolfgang and Mark Coffey) def. Flash Morgan Webster, Trent Seven and "Bomber" Dave Mastiff
Mark Andrews was originally slated to team with Webster and Mastiff but was replaced by Seven after being ambushed by Gallus backstage. I don't think Seven has been on the show since beating Eddie Dennis over a month ago, so this was a smart use of him. It was an entertaining television main event where everyone got to shine and they made the most of the time they had. I don't know what Gallus winning means exactly, but maybe it leads to a Joe Coffey vs. Seven feud in the near future.
Aside from the enjoyable main event, there wasn't a ton on this show worth raving about as far as wrestling went. Ohno vs. Williams was well wrestled but felt like filler. The first two matches didn't weren't anything out of the ordinary, either. On the bright side, the show did feature a few strong video packages and the hype for next week (A-Kid vs. Noam Dar, Jordan Devlin vs. Travis Banks for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship) was well done.
