The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.
NXT UK Results: Faction Warfare!
The weekly dose of BritWres from NXT UK had a big moment around it’s two biggest factions. Full results from the show (h/t TWM Wrestling) include:
- Joe Coffey def. T-Bone
- Isla Dawn def. Killer Kelly
- South Wales Subculture & Grizzled Young Veterans go to a double-disqualification
The reason for the double DQ was the continued faction warfare between Gallus and Imperium. Both stables were out to watch the action and ended up wrecking havoc. They squared off in the middle of the ring before Ilya Dragunov’s music hit. Imperium has been recruiting Dragunov to join their cause. How did that go for them?

WWE Injury Roundup
Some WWE stars are on the shelf and will be coming back on different timelines. According to reports aggregated by WrestlingInc:
- Cedric Alexander was dealing with a minor injury in the past few weeks. Alexander was cleared by Monday for his match against oft-rival Buddy Murphy.
- Alexa Bliss has been out for a few weeks of competition due to a shoulder injury. She has been cleared to return to the ring.
- Xavier Woods suffered an Achilles tear during WWE’s tour of Australia. Woods will not be available to return until roughly Summer 2020. This will leave Kofi Kingston & Big E shorthanded in the New Day. Woods is still having a lot of fun while on the mend:

The big jump in NXT interest could be a result of NXT stars invading Raw and SmackDown. AEW Dynamite’s Full Gear go-home show also did pretty well. Exciting times to be a wrestling fan!
