The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.
NXT UK Results
A big triple threat was the standout match on this week’s episode of NXT UK. Joseph Connors finally proved that he is TakeOver worthy. The full results:
- Toni Storm def. Killer Kelly
- The Hunt def. The Outliers
- Jordan Devlin def. A-Kid
- Joseph Connors def. Travis Banks and Ligero
Ilja Dragunov and Gallus’ issues with WALTER and Imperium continued this week. Joey Coffey and WALTER tried to negotiate a settlement of the issues between their two groups. The resulting agreement includes Coffey challenging WALTER for the NXT UK Championship in Blackpool, an NXT UK Tag Title Match between Imperium & Gallus, and a No DQ match between Ilja Dragunov and Alexander Wolfe.
Dragunov got the worst of the main event segment, finding himself driven through a table by Imperium. The three matches set by the main event segment should fill out an excellent TakeOver Blackpool card.
