Jinny tags in and covers for the win.

Ilja Dragunov defeated Joseph Conners @ 4:50 via pin [**½] This was a solid match with Dragunov continuing to roll along.

Bate battles back, tagging in Seven and double teams follow. Barthel cuts off Seven, follows with uppercuts and WALTER tags in. They lock up and WALTER backs him off and to the corner.

Bate battles back with strikes and chops, and the double lariat follows. Seven hits the seven star lariat, a suicide dive and Dunne hits bitter end as Bate it’s the spiral tap for 2. It breaks down as a masked figure heads to the ring and the ref is taken out. The masked man is Alexander Wolfe, who Liger bombs Bate. The ref us Back and bate is done. Imperium defeated British Strong Style @ 14:50 via pin [***¾] Imperium bolsters their ranks by one, and takes out British Strong Style in their first official clash. This was a very good and tremendously fun tag match, that worked very well for their first meeting and also continues things. The question is, can British Strong Style find an ally to counter the addition of Wolfe?

Next Week: Kenny Williams vs. Kassius Ohno, #1 Contender’s UK Women’s Title Battle Royal, The Hunt vs. Gallus.

This week’s episode of NXT UK was pretty good show, with a really good main event, and also giving Gabert & Dragunov momentum while adding to Imperium by bringing Wolfe into NXT UK, which I love.
