The Iron King is back, and thus Gallus is once again at full strength. Joe Coffey made his highly anticipated return to the ring and was as physically dominant as ever as the Glasgow firm squared off with the oddball alliance of Sam Gradwell & Pretty Deadly. Coffey found himself alone in the ring with Gradwell and ate an STO, but recovered in time to deliver All The Best for the Bells and put the Gallus boys on top.
The feisty upstart Aleah James gave Jinny plenty to deal with in a spirited effort, but The Fashionista put down the underdog challenger with a rolling Liger kick for the victory.
Not yet satisfied with merely a victory, Jinny commandeered a microphone and ran down her competition in the NXT UK Women's division, and Piper Niven was quick to meet her in the ring for a heated shouting match. NXT UK Women's Champion Kay Lee Ray soon joined the scene as well, challenging both to demonstrate their "killer instinct." Jinny slapped Piper but was met with a thunderous headbutt. Seemingly snapping, Niven smashed a chair over Jinny's back before planting her with a Piper Drive.
A-Kid has punched his ticket for the finals after digging deep for a comeback victory. The Spanish Superstar nearly tapped Noam Dar for the first fall, but The Scottish Supernova was saved by the bell marking Round 2's end.
Dar instead turned the tables, earning a submission fall in Round 3 and keeping the hold cinched in even after the bell to potentially jeopardize A-Kid's right arm, which he targeted with a vicious kick to begin Round 4. A-Kid evened the tally, however, pinning Dar with a crafty bridge combination, and neither man earned a fall in Round 5, requiring Sudden Death.
Potentially sealing his own fate, Dar planted two kisses on the Heritage Cup as the action spilled outside, but moments later found himself locked in A-Kid's omoplata and had no choice but to submit.
