- Jordan Devlin looks the most determined he’s done since Worlds Collide back in January
- Both men get the proper championship match announcement and pre-match tradition

- Early into the match, the champion is going to the taped shoulder of the challenger but Jordan reverses and send Devlin to the mat

- Lovely backdrop driver by ‘The Irish Ace’ who is cruising
- Jordan nails hard chops which Jordan avoids in the third corner and responds with his own
- Devlin cuts Jordan’s momentum with a lovely dropkick
- Devlin cuts Jordan off again with a stunning urinagi and moonsault combo

- Devlin counters the Swanton Bombay and applies the cloverleaf for the submission victory
Winner: Jordan Devlin
Analysis: A really good match that did Devlin justice as champion. Jordan was never going to win this but he gave it a go and the champion sold his challenger’s threat. Now we need Devlin vs. Escobar as it was clear by the Grizzled Young Veterans returning to NXT that talent can travel.
Saxon Huxley challenges Rampage Brown in a backstage segment in the WWE UK Performance Centre. This isn’t going to end well for Huxley.

Eddie Dennis and The Hunt are attacked by Mark Andrews and Flash Morgan Webster outside the BT Studios after it was revealed The Hunt were behind the attack of the Welshmen.
Isla Dawn vs. Jinny
- Isla Dawn was beginning to gain some momentum before NXT UK took its enforced break. Since its return, she’s reverted back to the Isla Dawn we got at the very beginning of NXT UK.
- Jinny is coming off of costing Piper Niven the NXT UK Women’s Championship last week
- Isla Dawn’s momentum was cut really short by Jinny who avoided a running charge and connected with a rolling Liger kick
- Jinny works on the back of Dawn and asks her in a less than low tone if she deserves to be in the ring with her
- An incredibly good octopus stretch by Jinny which looks painful
- Dawn breaks by grabbing the rope but Jinny rolls back into a seated chinlock. Really nice move
- Dawn lays into Jinny with kicks and a lovely running meteora
- Isla with a near fall on a high angle backdrop driver
- Jinny sweeps Dawn’s leg out and she lands face first on the knee
- Dawn with a tarantula, straight the page of Tajiri
- Jinny connects with an inverted kick to the head and applies an STF chinlock for the victory
- Jinny looks into the camera and asks if she’s enjoying hospital
Analysis: A by the numbers match which pushed Jinny further in her quest for the NXT UK Women’s Championship and feud with Piper Niven. It’s a shame what they’re doing to Dawn, she’s better than enhancement talent.

- Seven takes the cup at the end and gives it to A-Kid
Analysis: This result surprised me a lot. I thought Seven would prevail seeing as he’s gotten very little from his NXT UK career so far, at the very least a heel turn would have been nice. However, the match was very good. It took a while to get going but the final few rounds were excellent and tense and the final few seconds were just pure drama. Marvelous job by both men, and this would have been MOTY contender with a crowd present. NXT UK must capitalise on this now and push A-Kid to the summit. A-Kid vs. Walter for the NXT UK Championship is surely on the cards. Maybe it will be David who slays Goliath after all.

Final analysis: this week’s edition of NXT UK was a very good offering which advanced the feuds of Alexander Wolfe and Joe Coffey, South Wales Subculture and The Hunt and elevated A-Kid to the next level with the win in the NXT UK Heritage Cup. However, it’s now hard to see where the brand go with Trent Seven. Winning the cup would have given him an avenue, but unless a heel turn is incoming or promotion to NXT then I fear he’ll be treading water on the brand for the foreseeable future. A potential Moustache Mountain reunion would be welcome for Seven right now, but with no sign of Tyler Bate then it’s looking very unlikely.
