WWE NXT CHAMPIONSHIP: ZACK GIBSON & JAMES DRAKE vs. MUSTACHE MOUNTAIN
Tyler Bate and Zack Gibson start the match, and the crowd is HOT. Collar and elbow tie up to start and Gibson gets Bate down to the mat. Gibson starts with joint manipulation and Bate tries to power his way up. Gibson goes for a pin, but Bate puts on a wrestlers bridge, getting himself out of the predicament. He floats over impressively and Gibson tags in James Drake.
Bate tags in Trent Seven, who starts to unload chops to the chest of Drake. Seven locks in an arm lock and drags Drake into the corner and tags in Tyler Bate. Bate whips Drake off the rope, and Gibson grabs the leg of Drake to stop the momentum. Drake collects himself but starts again with Bate and Bate gets the best of him and goes for a roll up but Drake kicks out. Bate tags in Seven and Trent Seven begins to battle both James Drake and Zack Gibson. Seven knocks Gibson out of the ring and then dives onto James Drake! Trent Seven turns around and he missed the tag to Gibson to hits a throat chop to Trent Seven, knocking him down on the outside.
Gibson in control now, as Seven tries to crawls to his corner, but he’s cut off by Zack Gibson, who locks in an arm submission. Seven tries to fight his way up, but Gibson tags in Drake, who springboards his way in and hits a forearm HARD to the back of the head of Trent Seven, busting him open. Gibson makers his way back in and locks in an arm submission again, wearing down Trent Seven. The NXT UK Universe tries to rally Seven back into the match. Gibson tags in James Drake, but Seven is successful in knocking Drake off the apron. Gibson has to leave the ring, so he resorts to sending Seven to the outside where Drake is. The two get up and start to exchange chops. Seven runs into the ring and tries to make the tag. Gibson tries to stop him, but Seven jumps and is able to get to Tyler Bate!
Bate comes in and hits back body drops on both Gibson and Drake. He hoists up James Drake on his shoulders and spins him around, using Drake’s feet to kick Gibson. He decides to add Gibson to his shoulders and STARTS TO SPIN BOTH MEN! Gibson falls off and falls to the outside. Drake and Bate fight their way onto the apron, and Tyler hits an exploder suplex to Drake off the apron onto Gibson!
