The vicious Joseph Conners looked to use the full force of his brutal nature to ground Mark Andrews in the opening NXT UK contest from the Download Festival, but his high-flying opponent triumphed by hitting Stundog Millionaire into Fall to Pieces for the victory.
Wearing their best suits and plastic bags over their shoes, The Grizzled Young Veterans ridiculed the fans at the Download Festival and expressed their resentment for having to be there before declaring that they were leaving for their five-star hotel and weren't coming back until their NXT UK Tag Team Title Match against Moustache Mountain next week.
Ever since Killer Kelly left Xia Brookside by herself to suffer the wrath of Jinny's powerful employee Jazzy Gabert several weeks ago, the daughter of legendary Robbie Brookside has been waiting to get even.
As Killer Kelly struck Xia's face with several vicious blows, The Fashionista and Gabert emerged to observe the action. Nevertheless, Brookside overcame the distraction and leveled Kelly with a Double Knee Facebreaker to score the pinfall.
After besting Joe Coffey, Dave Mastiff and Jordan Devlin in a high-stakes Fatal 4-Way Match several weeks ago, Travis Banks earned a one-on-one title fight against WWE United Kingdom Championship WALTER, who showed up for battle sans Imperium and ready to earn the victory on his own.
Throughout the match, The Kiwi Buzzsaw showed incredible grit, executing a double stomp off the top rope that nearly dethroned the champion and nailing a Slice of Heaven that may have put WALTER down for three if he hadn't been able to roll under the ropes and avoid the pin attempt.
Nevertheless, The Ring General reigned supreme when he knocked Banks off the apron, drilled him with a big boot and a vicious chop, and obliterated him with an apron powerbomb. The onslaught paved the way for WALTER to finish off his prey with a second powerbomb in the ring for the successful title defense.
