The 02/20/19 edition of NXT UK, out of the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona, just wrapped up. We’ve got the WWE NXT UK results, as well as our overall thoughts on the show, for you to check out below. Let us know what you thought about episode #31 of NXT UK by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.
Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster vs. The Coffey Brothers
The Coffey Brothers took control of the match early on, attacking Mark Andrews and cutting the ring in half. Of course, Flash Morgan Webster eventually got the hot tag, and when he did, he made the most of it.
On the floor, Webster hit a turnbuckle-post hurricanrana on one of the Coffey boys, sending him into the time keeper’s area. Both Andrews and Webster also hit double diving sentons to the floor, which got a nice reaction from the Phoenix crowd.
The Coffey Brothers eventually hit a forearm smash//lariat combo to pick up the win, but again, Andrews and Webster looked really good here.
Winner: The Coffey Brothers
Trent Seven vs. Shane Thorne
Shane Thorne spent much of the match targeting Trent Seven’s right arm. The two brawled outside the ring on the floor early on, before finally going back in the ring.
Thorne went to the top rope, but Seven cut him off and hit a top rope superplex, which earned him a two count. Both men exchanged strikes in the middle of the ring for a bit before Thorne hit a big German suplex, but only also only got a two count out of it.
After a hard fought, back-and-forth match, Seven landed the Seven Stars Lariat outta nowhere to score the pinfall victory.
Winner: Trent Seven
Jack Gallagher to NXT UK
Jack Gallagher vs. Tyler Bate was announced for next week’s episode of NXT UK. Speaking of next week’s show, the lineup is pretty stacked (more on that later)…
Grizzled Young Veterans Speak
Zack Gibson did all of the talking for the Grizzled Young Veterans here. Gibson claimed that they were the best tag team on earth, and that the NXT UK Tag Team Championship titles around their waists was all the proof they needed.
Gipson claimed that the two were so good, in fact, that they shouldn’t have to travel all the way to America for competition, other teams should have to come to them in the UK.
Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan had heard enough at this point and came down looking for a fight. The Grizzled Young Vets were clearly unprepared to get physical, however, and quickly ran off.
The two teams will meet next week, as will Kassius Ohno and WALTER. We told you next week’s show was loaded, didn’t we?
Toni Storm (c) vs. Rhea Ripley
NXT Women’s Championship Match
Rhea Ripley attacked Toni Storm before the match began and quickly went back for more the moment the bell rang. What a mean lady.
Storm managed to weather the storm (ha!) and fight her way back into the match, nailing Ripley with a big backstabber to turn the tides. However, Storm was so beat up at this point that she couldn’t even make a pinfall attempt, which allowed Ripley to regain control.
Ripley hit a big superplex from the top rope for a two count, and followed that up with a spear attempt, but Storm moved and she went hard into the ring post.
This was the opening that Storm needed. She hit the Storm Zero and scored the pinfall to retain her NXT UK Women’s Championship.
Winner: Toni Storm
