    Great recommendation. Watched this last night and I can't imagine anything on NXT UK episodes gets you as hyped for the main event as this special did.

    I thought WALTER came off great as the heel in this and I was glad they added Trent who is usually the best talker of BSS. Tyler didn't really come off as THE man to me, even though the theme of the special was about how much he had grown up in the last 2 years, it still showed he struggles with his promos and needed Trent there to talk him up.

    Sad I decided to not get tickets for this in my home town

    Don't really watch NXT UK outside of the takeovers and I wanted a little more from the card and the better seats had gone. Shame.

    Anyway, I'll watch the show and I'm hoping it's a good one! Great day/night for wrestling! :D Excited.

    Dar never needed Alicia Faux to display his arrogance. He needs to be back on 205 Live to be honest.

    Walter is a Wanker I agree Cardiff

    I'm not been watching but so what do you mean "rest holds"?. Also, I feel the need to tell you that not all ground moves are rest holds. Same goes with bear hugs.

    Match sucks right now plain and simple any intrest I have is the 10 seconds of Bate offense to go back to a headlock or this slow pace of nothing going off. I love the rest of the card that tag team match was motn and moty type.

    Flash Morgan & Mark Andrews are fantastic

    OMB's Walter Hating gimmick is at least more entertaining than ETE's jobber/insider lingo one, but both are pretty bad.

    Uncanny.

    I'll be watching this tomorrow (maybe??). Sounds like a good show tbh. I'll give some people I haven't watched in ages a shot. It's good to hear Flash Morgan Webster was good. Loved that guy in Progress. Seemed to be the only one too.

    The thing is I go into every match hoping he proves me wrong the guy can chop but other then that he bores the shit out of me.

    I’ve been following NXT UK off and on since about May, but holy shit what a show. The crowd was awesome throughout.

    The triple threat tag match was incredible, it was the first time I’ve ever seen that middle rope dive-doomsday device.

    Cesaro delivered as usual. I really like Dragunov, I think he has loads of potential.

    The Last Man Standing Match was brutal. Both guys worked their asses off, very creative spot with the ring ropes breaking off.

    The main event delivered, and told a perfect story. Holy shit is Tyler Bate strong. The burning hammer might have been my favorite spot. I was really sensing Dunne and Trent turning on Bate afterwards but it never happened.

    to be completely honest, I live under a rock when it comes to current day wrestling. Just by reading posts from you guys that are in tune with the UK scene, Ed, to name one guy off the top of my head especially, have turned me into a huge UK wrestling fan. I thought the show delivered and if anything, turned me into a weekly NXT UK fan.

    Yeah this card over performed and people should give it a chance even if it “doesn’t interest you on paper”. Opener was bland and the Storm match was sloppy. Cesaro v Dragonov was very good, the triple threat tag was really good with a great underdog story, the last man standing was entertaining as fuck, and the main event was great from both parties. The size difference made everything look great. It was definitely better then Cole/Gargano but maybe my taste is the drizzling shits compared to you workrate truthers.

    I keep thinking to myself Noam Dar should be given a push maybe if he had a manager I am guessing Seven is next to be feed to UK Champion.

    Tegan Nox in the crowd made me happy that girl I hope gets a huge push I think she be super over as a underdog babyface.
