BRM Reviews the 9/23/2021 NXT UK (A-KID VS. BROWN VS. FRASIER!)

HERITAGE CUP #1 CONTENDERSHIP TOURNAMENT SEMIFINAL MATCH: Wolfgang (w/Gallus) vs. Teoman (w/Rohan Raja)- 5.5/10
Wolfgang overcame his injured arm from his previous match to pick up the win.

BLAIR DAVENPORT HAS SENT IN A VIDEO- She once again tells Sid Scala that “bad things will continue to happen” unless he reinstates her.

SUBCULTURE ARRIVE AT THE NXT UK PC- They had some area where they were going to shoot a promo or something, but Sam Gradwell came out of that area, all smiles and cheerfully (but also loudly, because he’s Sam Gradwell) said “’morning, Subculture!” They went into their promo area to find that someone (probably Gradwell) had spray-painted over their logo backdrop.

DURING THE COMMERCIAL BREAK, GALLUS WERE ASSHOLES- They went into Jordan Devlin’s private dressing room and are messily drinking beer. Devlin came in and demanded that they leave, so they shoved him out the door and locked it, then taunted him.
This is the second straight week where someone has barged into someone else’s dressing room while they weren’t there. Don’t these people know how to use locks?

ISLA DAWN vs. JINNY (w/Joseph Conners)- 5.75/10
They had a good brawl. Jinny won clean, but Isla grabbed something from Joseph Conners, so she got whatever thing she was after.

? INTERRUPTS A SUBCULTURE INTERVIEW TO SET UP A MATCH WITH DANI LUNA- Not good, mostly because I don’t think they ever said the other woman’s name.
They set this up as speed vs. strength. They’re also pushing the idea that people are being inspired by Meiko Satomura’s challenge for them to “step up.”

CHARLIE DEMPSEY VIDEO PACKAGE- good

EARLIER THIS WEEK, ASHTON SMITH, TRENT SEVEN, & OLIVER CARTER ARGUE ABOUT… SOMETHING- I guess this led to a match or something?

#1 CONTENDERSHIP MATCH: A-Kid vs. Rampage Brown vs. Nathan Frasier- 9.25/10
Holy f*ck how have I not been hearing about his match?! This was INSANE! It was a combination of the usual three-way story and the “two smaller wrestlers must team up to take out the bigger man” story. They did a bunch of crazy stuff, but made sure that every single move mattered. They hit a point towards the end where almost everything they did felt like a potential finish. It was incredible!


An excellent episode of NXT UK, although mostly on the strength of the main event.
Hold #712: ARM BAR!
