DUSTY RHODES TAG TEAM CLASSIC QUARTERFINALS MATCH
DRAKE MAVERICK & KILLIAN DAIN vs. MSK
We kick off tonight’s WWE NXT with the Dusty Cup and MSK’s second-ever WWE match. Wes Lee kicks things off with Drake Maverick and it is MSK who take advantage with Nash Carter tagging in as the duo work a great double team in their corner.
The duo makes frequent tags as they launch themselves over the top rope with a senton onto Maverick. However, Drake puts on the brakes to avoid the next move and he brings in Killian Dain, who simply uses Maverick to launch him into Carter.
The bigger man then starts unloading in his corner, dominating as he tags in Maverick, throws him to the floor to trip Carter as he then flattens him and then drops Drake on top for good measure. The duo then nails a pump kick combination, but Wes Lee breaks up the count.
Carter then slides out and makes a tag and MSK work together with quick strikes to chop him down. However, this only serves to anger Killian who then smashes Lee off the top rope to the floor. Back in the ring, Dain keeps up the control, hitting a power slam and then a senton as Maverick then returns.
Carter is finally able to tag in though and he attacks Maverick with some knee strikes and then a knee to the jaw. Nash Carter then dropkicks Dain off the ring apron and MSK hits their moonsault/toss combination. On the outside, Carter wipes out Dain with a moonsault, but Maverick almost steals one in the process with a roll-up to Lee.
Wes Less fights out of it though and he hits a blockbuster as Carter keeps hold of Drake, allowing MSK to advance.
Curt Stallion is asked what people need to know about him, and he tells a story about driving and following shooting stars, which is why he’s the Lonestar Stallion. He says when that rocket gets strapped to his back, he’s going to the top.
WOMEN’S DUSTY RHODES TAG TEAM CLASSIC FIRST-ROUND
JESSI KAMEA & ALIYAH vs. DAKOTA KAI & RAQUEL GONZALEZ
Aliyah starts things out with Raquel Gonzalez who lifts and spins her around, leading to Aliyah quickly tagging out. Jessi Kamea tries her luck, but once again Raquel is too powerful, until she misses with her elbow drop, allowing Kamea to hit a dropkick.
A distraction from Dakota Kai allows Raquel to nail her opponent with a clubbing blow, but Kamea then slams Kai to the mat as she tags in. Aliyah then catches Kai with a sharp forearm after some great double teamwork from them. Aliya dumps Kai out of the ring, but as she slides out, Gonzalez saves her partner and pulls her away, with Dakota following up with a pump kick.
Raquel then returns and hits a whirlwind slam, and Kai comes in with a sharp kick to add to that pain. They continue to isolate Aliyah in their corner with Raquel then hitting a one-hand hip toss as she then drops Kai onto her with a stomp.
Aliyah tries to fight away, but Kai pulls her back with her hair, but when Dakota tries to stop her again, Aliyah nails a DDT. She finally tags out, but Kamea runs straight into a clothesline from Gonzalez who then lifts up Jessi and plants her down to the mat.
Winners: Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez

Michael Cole welcomed Daniel Bryan to the ring to kick off the show. Bryan acknowledged that Edge vs Roman Reigns is the dream match everyone wants to see in the main event at WrestleMania 37. He talked about rolling out of the ring at the Elimination Chamber feeling like a failure, watching Edge spear the champion and point to the WrestleMania sign. Bryan admitted that he’s been putting his own career on the backburner for the sake of giving back to the younger stars who are ready and deserve his spot. But he’s wrestled more in the last three weeks than Reigns or Edge have in the last three months, and promises to be the one who ruins everyone’s WrestleMania dream match.
Roman Reigns came out with his entourage and mocked Bryan for finally finding his ambition again. He claimed that Bryan doesn’t really love wrestling anymore, so much as he needs it. Reigns said that Bryan needs him at the Head of the Table just like everyone else in WWE. Jey Uso took the mic and told Bryan that he wasn’t walking out of the Steel Cage tonight. He didn’t lock Roman out of the cage, he locked himself inside with a pitbull. Uso took a shot at him, but Bryan easily sent him over the top rope like a chump and stared down the champion.
King Corbin def. Montez Ford
This was supposed to be a tag team match but Corbin refused because he’s a singles star, and demanded a singles match against either member of the Street Profits. Corbin won a short but solid match with the End of Days after Sami Zayn caused a distraction outside the ring. Zayn demanded that he return the favor in his match, but Corbin refused and stormed off.
Angelo Dawkins def. Sami Zayn
Another short but solid match with a distraction finish. Zayn had it won after an Exploder Suplex into the corner and lined up for the Helluva Kick, but noticed Montez Ford yelling at the documentary crew outside the ring. Dawkins rolled him up for the win. Zayn screamed at the doc crew and lost his mind after the match, choking out one of the camera guys and demanding to know who hired him and if he was with “the company”.
Reginald tried to give Carmella a bottle of champaign backstage, but she called him a snake and knocked the bottle out of his hands. Carmella called Reginald out for his obsession with Sasha Banks and fired him!
Dominik Mysterio def. Chad Gable
Dominik once again looked really good working through the basics here, and Gable being Gable was able to handle more of the technical stuff and make it look good. Commentary played up that Dominik was going to be a big star in the future but he was still just starting out and Gable was at the peak of his ability. Then Dom dodged a moonsault and rolled him up to win. Rey Mysterio immediately took to the apron and dove onto Otis, taking him over the announce table.

Ilja Dragunov def. Sam Gradwell
Gradwell was all trash talk from the start and Dragunov completely ignored it, taking him to the mat over and over. Dragunov connected with knee strikes and heavy elbows, and when Gradwell continued to taunt him, a stiff boot to the face. Gradwell caught him in the ropes and set in with kicks to the back of the neck and side of the head. Double underhook suplex. Clubbing blows to the back. Dragunov roared back, literally, with wild elbow strikes and slaps upside the head while maintaining wrist control. Gradwell gave them right back, but got caught with two German suplexes. Dragunov hit a sky high diving senton for a nearfall. He started pummelling the man with nasty elbows until the referee called for the bell.
Dragunov completely snapped after the match, putting Gradwell back in a submission and continuing to beat the hell out of him. Referees pulled him off, but he backed one into the corner and tore at his shirt, screaming in his face until “snapping out of it”. Dragunov tried to apologize to the refs and left freaking out while Gradwell looked on smiling and laughing.

Noam Dar read “reviews” from fans talking about how great he is. He invited Tyler Bate onto the show as his special guest, leading to an awkward conversation about zen. Bate discussed his vegetarian lifestyle and Dar dumped a bunch of broccoli and spinach on him, which he thought was hilarious for some reason. I think the intention was to do some kind of Tim & Eric or Between Two Ferns ironic comedy sort of thing, but it didn’t connect for me at all.

Amir Jordan & Kenny Williams def. Ashton Smith & Oliver Carter
Great fast-paced exchange between Williams and Carter trading pinning combinations and looking for submissions. Smith tagged in and tossed Williams around the ring with ease. Jordan came in and caught him with a few dropkicks, and took the big man down with a flying crossbody from the second rope. He slapped on a side headlock, but Smith easily tossed him into the corner and took turns with his partner clobbering him with clotheslines and heavy body shots. Williams eventually got the hot tag and cleaned house, sending them both to the floor. Jordan and Williams hit stereo suicide dives and a wheelbarrow facebuster/diving senton combo for a very close nearfall. Both teams traded offense but Jordan ended up getting a pin on Oliver Carter with an assist from his partner at ringside.
NXT UK Women’s Championship Match
Kay Lee Ray (c) def. Meiko Satomura
Kay Lee tried to lock up right away and Meiko easily out-grappled her and sent the champion out to the floor. Kay Lee took it personally and went after her with stiff kicks and elbows in the corner. Meiko fired back with body kicks and a spin kick, catching her under the jaw, before locking in an STF. Kay Lee dragged them both across the ring to get to the ropes, and Meiko continued pelting her with kicks all over the body. The champion caught her with a Koji Clutch out of nowhere to turn the tide. Kay Lee transitioned into a body stretch and slowed things down for a beat. She made the mistake of trying to trade kicks with the Japanese legend and got destroyed by a spinning wheel kick and a half dozen more kicks in the corner. Kay Lee rolled out to the floor and baited the challenger into a Hangman’s DDT from the apron. She broke the ref’s count in order to set up for a Gory Bomb on the apron, but Meiko struggled free and hit a Death Valley Driver! This time it was Kay Lee barely making it back into the ring on time. Meiko drilled her in the head with a running knee and walked circles around her, looking for the killing blow. Brainbuster for 1… 2… no. Meiko put her on the second turnbuckle, but Kay Lee surprised her with a Tornado DDT and immediately reapplied the Koji Clutch. Meiko nearly faded but started flailing around with her legs until reaching the bottom rope. Kay Lee climbed to the top rope but Meiko hit her with a bicycle kick to knock her down! Death Valley Driver for 1… 2… still no. This time Meiko climbed the ropes, dropped the champion with a kick to the head, but Kay Lee got her knees up to block a diving splash. Superkick. Gory Bomb. 1… 2… no. A frustrated Kay Lee tried and failed to lift the dead weight of her opponent for another Gory Bomb, so she instead climbed the ropes, taking far too long. Meiko dodges a Swanton Bomb, tried for the Scorpion Kick, Kay Lee blocked it, went for the Gory Bomb, but Meiko countered with Code Blue! Superkick from the champion! Bicycle kick from the challenger! Both women down. Kay Lee definitely pulls her up and delivers one final Gory Bomb to get the job done.
This was a tremendous match, maybe ****1/4 that I can only imagine would have been one of the better WWE matches in many, many years with a building full of rowdy UK fans.
