NXT UK Results – November 5, 2020

Follow all of tonight’s NXT UK results as the show emanates from BT Sport Studios once again, following last week’s highly-acclaimed main event.

Three matches have been pre-announced for tonight’s episode, including:

  • Jinny vs. the debuting Aleah James
  • NXT UK Heritage Cup Semi-Final: Noam Dar vs. A-Kid
  • Gallus (Joe Coffey, Mark Coffey & Wolfgang) vs. Pretty Deadly (Sam Stoker & Lewis Howley) and the returning Sam Gradwell

Results from last week’s episode of NXT UK can be found here.

Inside The Ropes will keep you updated with the results as the action unfolds live from 8PM GMT.

Gallus (Joe Coffey, Mark Coffey & Wolfgang) defeated Pretty Deadly (Sam Stoker & Lewis Howley) and Sam Gradwell via pinfall

  • Joe Coffey returns to the ring after he was suspended from WWE in June
  • Sam Gradwell also makes his in-ring return. NXT UK’s ‘Thunderstorm’ has been recovering from an ACL injury since August 2018
  • Mark Coffey now competes in a singlet, similar to that of his tag team partner Wolfgang
  • Gradwell seemed unimpressed with Stoker and Howley’s relaxed attitude
  • Joe Coffey taunted Gradwell for his two-year absence from the squared circle
  • Joe Coffey pinned Sam Gradwell after he connected with a discus lariat

Analysis: A thoroughly impressive outing from Pretty Deadly in particular, whose fluidity in their tandem offence is second to none. Sam Gradwell looked to be in great shape in his return match and brought great intensity to the ring.

  • Flash Morgan Webster and Mark Andrews were announced to be medically uncleared to compete following The Hunt’s attack last week

Rampage Brown arrives at the WWE UK Performance Center

  • Brown was welcomed to the Performance Center by Johnny Moss, Sean Hayes and Sid Scala
  • He observed as Levi Muir and Jack Starz were seen training together in the ring

Jinny defeated Aleah James via pinfall

  • Jinny picked up the pinfall victory with a rolling Liger kick
  • The ‘Fashionista’ took to the microphone after the match where she called out Piper Niven
  • Niven wasted no time in confronting Jinny, but she was quickly followed by Kay Lee Ray
  • Kay Lee Ray presented Jinny and Niven with a steel chair, inciting a fight between both women
  • Niven proved her killer instinct to Ray by attacking Jinny and Aleah James with the chair, before chasing after the champion
  • The confrontation between Niven and Ray continued to escalate backstage during the break

It was announced that Piper Niven will challenge Kay Lee Ray for the NXT UK Women’s Championship in a Falls Count Anywhere match in two weeks

Analysis: Aleah James did a great job in her debut. Though the focus was firmly on the ‘Fashionista’, James certainly made sure to impress as she displayed her remarkably athletic evasive manoeuvres.

  • It was announced that Rampage Brown will make his NXT UK in-ring debut next week

NXT UK Heritage Cup Semi-Final: A-Kid defeated Noam Dar (2-1)

  • The first round focused on mat-based grappling before Dar turned up the aggression towards the end, kicking A-Kid out of the ring just before the bell
  • A-Kid locked in a Crossface on Dar at the end of the second round, however Dar was saved by the bell
  • Dar scored the first point via verbal submission in the third round
  • After scoring the first point, Dar became increasingly arrogant, consequently leading to A-Kid equalising via pinfall in the fourth round
  • Round five ended in a desperate fist fight between both men
  • With less than fifty seconds left, A-Kid submitted Dar in the sixth round to win by 2-1

Analysis: This was a tremendous main event. Dar and A-Kid clearly have great in-ring chemistry and both men looked great throughout. A-Kid’s eccentric comeback spots fed perfectly into Dar’s displays of arrogance – a dynamic that was only heightened by the match’s stipulation. I would love to see these two go at it once more.

Analysis Summary

To conclude, this week’s edition of NXT UK delivered on all levels.

Pretty Deadly had an excellent showing against Gallus and seem to be slowly inching towards NXT UK tag team gold. Sam Gradwell’s return was also a breath of fresh air. After suffering an ACL injury over two years ago, the charismatic Blackpool native seems to be back with a vengeance.

My highlight this week has to be the interesting developments in the NXT UK women’s division. Not to disregard Aleah James’ impressive debut against Jinny, Piper Niven’s new vicious attitude is sure to rattle the women’s division. The Scot will challenge Kay Lee Ray for the NXT UK Women’s Championship in a Falls Count Anywhere match in two weeks.

Noam Dar and A-Kid provided us with a fantastic main event – a difficult task considering the brutal encounter it had to follow from last week. After such an impressive outing, A-Kid continues to be NXT UK’s standout singles performer as he advances to the Heritage Cup Final.
