Following Kassius Ohno's recent claim that he would leave Travis Banks “busted and broken to bits” if they ever crossed paths, The Kiwi Buzzsaw took on NXT UK's outspoken recent arrival.
In the height of the hard-fought matchup that included Ohno targeting his opponent's recently injured right shoulder, Banks ultimately fought through the pain. Shortly after kicking out of the Rubik's Cube, the tough competitor ultimately triumphed with the third of three quick pin attempts and left Ohno completely flabbergasted in defeat.
Two weeks after boldly interrupting the first-ever NXT UK Women's Champion, Rhea Ripley, in order to lay claim to NXT UK dominance, Piper Niven stepped into the squared circle in her highly anticipated NXT UK debut against Killer Kelly. Despite a Kelly's valiant efforts, the final moments of the fairly one-sided contest saw Niven plant her out-matched prey in the center of the ring for the definitive three-count.
In the wake of Niven's victory, Ripley suddenly stormed the ring in an attempt to get the drop on the new NXT UK competitor. But, when Piper saw it coming, The Mosh Pit Kid opted to slow her roll and their subsequent stare down ensued that prophesied a dangerous showdown between the two in the future.
After a long, rivaled history and weeks of mounting tension between NXT UK Women's Champion Toni Storm and Jinny, the situation completely boiled over last week with a backstage brawl that left the rockin’ titleholder down and out.
That assault only served to further stir the pot when two fierce competitors squared off for the gold in NXT UK's main event. In the final moments of the hard-fought match up, Storm rose above and took down the challenge of a very game Jinny with the help of Storm Zero
