The 06/12/19 edition of WWE NXT UK, out of the Braehead Arena in Glasgow, Scotland, just wrapped up. We’ve got the match results, as well as our overall thoughts on the show, for you to check out below. Let us know what you thought about episode #47 of NXT UK by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.
Xia Brookside & Isla Dawn vs. Jinny & Jazzy Gabert
Isla Dawn and Jinny started this one off, with neither woman gaining an advantage early on in the match. Xia Brookside eventually tagged in and she quickly started to shine, dropkicking Jinny right in the face and sending her crashing down on the mat.
Jazzy Gabert had seen enough at this point and tagged into the match herself. She easily overpowered the much smaller Brookside, and Dawn didn’t fare well, either.
Jazzy hit The Dominator (shout out to Farooq!) on Dawn and Jinny tagged herself in for the pinfall. You have to imagine that stuff like that is going to piss Jazzy off eventually, but for now, those two appear to be on the same page.
Winner: Jinny & Jazzy Gabert
Joseph Conners vs. Ilja Dragunov
If you’ve ever seen Ilja Dragunov perform, you know that he is absolutely nuts inside the ropes. That… unorthodox approach in the ring overwhelmed Joseph Conners here, who never could really get anything going in this match.
Conners ate a big jumping roundhouse kick at one point but did respond nicely with a sunset bomb into the corner. Unfortunately for him, Dragunov responded to his response, with a death valley bomb into that same corner. Ouch.
After a big suplex from Dragunov, he nearly decapitated Conners with the Torpedo Moskau to get the win.
Winner: Ilja Dragunov
British Strong Style vs. Imperium
Pete Dunne came right out of the gate and went after Fabian Aichner the moment the bell sounded. The two then exchanged strikes, and lariats, wasting no time getting this match going.
Tyler Bate tagged in and took out both Aichner and Marcel Barthel with some pretty dropkicks. Barthel’s throat strike on Bate, which he hit mid-mustache taunt, was what opened things up for Imperium to control the pace of the match for a bit.
Side note: Everyone really laid their stuff in here. Some of these strikes looked (and sounded) absolutely brutal.
Pete Dunne eventually got the hot tag and we got Dunne/WALTER III for a few moments. The two exchanged suplexes, chops, and brawled a bit on the floor as well.
Dunne and Bate landed a Bitter End/somersault senton combo on Barthel, but WALTER broke up the pinfall attempt. Good stuff.
Around this time a masked man showed up and slowly walked down to the ring. The ref noticed him, and was trying to send him away, but got bumped to the floor by Seven. While the ref was down, the man unmasked and revealed himself to be Alexander Wolfe!
Wolfe quickly took out Bate with a sit-out powerbomb, which led to Imperium getting the win. The now four-man Imperium posed together in the ring to close out the show.
