Following a backstage brawl several weeks ago, Piper Niven went head-to-head with Rhea Ripley in a highly anticipated rematch.
Piper emerged supreme the last time the bitter adversaries squared off, but the first-ever NXT UK Women's Champion would not be denied this time. Both competitors fought tooth-and-nail and left everything they had in the ring, but Ripley took advantage of her opponent 's back injury by blasting Niven from behind before her finishing off with the Riptide.
Each competitor holds a victory over the other, so who will win the third match if and when they once again battle each other in their continued quest for dominance?
After Assistant to the General Manager Sid Scala revealed that Jack Gallagher was not medically cleared to face his scheduled opponent Kassius Ohno, the self-professed “Wrestling Genius” crashed the interview and informed Scala that he needed to find him a replacement. After conversing with General Manager Johnny Saint, Scala revealed that Ohno’s opponent would be ... him!
Fresh off handing Ilja Dragunov his first loss in NXT UK several weeks ago, Ohno was a tall order for Scala, who hadn't competed on NXT UK since becoming Saint's right-hand man. Still, the quick-moving grappler showed no fear as he held his own and gave Ohno more of a fight than he may have bargained for. Nevertheless, despite Scala scoring several near-falls, Ohno roared back and drilled his gusty adversary with the Dream Crusher to the back of the head, claiming a decisive victory.
