Absolutely buzzing to be here, looking forward to the match of the year, Walter v Cesaro. Who knew we would get better than Walter v Dragunov!
Well. Let’s start.
We kick off with credits music as some of the footage used is for promotional material and fed in crowd noise for future shows which is kinda cool. Gives a tv taping feel like I had back at BT Studios for the NXTUK tapings last month. (Shout out to A-Kid and the Gallus guys for being so cool)
The matchcard was:
Tommaso Ciampa v Bron Breakker v Zayne for the NXT Championship
Absolute slug fest between Breakker and Ciampa. Some seriously heavy hitting moves and some great heel work from Zayne.
Ultimately Ciampa retains in a decent 20 minute match!
See clip for Zayne flapping his gums. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Natalya v Shayna Baszler
Quick match, Natty gets shoved around a few times with Shayna using technical mat work to get the win. ⭐️ ⭐️
Jinder Mahal v Shinsuke Nakamura for the Intercontinental Championship
Amazing guitar work from RICK BOOOOOOOOOOGGGGGGGSSSSSSS! Nice little match between the two. Jinder looks ripped as ever. Shinsuke seems to have had the title for an age, but it works. Solid match, Shinsuke retains. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Walter v Cesaro
We start off with Sheamus running his mouth with that beautiful face mask he wears. He then sits ringside.
Some heavy hitting chops. Literally bringing the crowd to their knees with how hard they were.
We go back and forth numerous times to determine a winner, however, after Sheamus interferes and smashed Casaro in the back of the head, we end up in a DQ with Walter being victorious.
This then turns into a beat down on Cesaro by Sheamus and Walter. This then becomes a tag team match when big daddy Drew McIntyre (that’s one for Mrs box) makes the save.
Winners obviously are Cesaro and Big D Mac. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Would have been 5 but we got a screwed finish to the actual Walter v Cesaro match. No I’m not lying. It was that F***ng good!
Jeff Hardy v Happy Corbin
The Happy Corbin gimmick doesnt work for me if I’m honest. More Wetherspoons manager on a week long bender if I’m honest. Great worker just sucky gimmicks.
Jeff wins after hitting a botched swanton bomb which was more like a Mysterio splash from the top. ⭐️ ⭐️
Charlotte v Sasha Banks for the Smackdown Women's Championship
As expected, this was match of the night. Both women looked amazing and played their respective roles to a T. Charlotte, the egotistical Flair who can do no wrong, versus a timid Sasha who ultimately gets screwed out of the win.
Hard hitting. Some high flying from Sasha with the knees should have seen her secure victory. But hey, it’s a house show. We're not in the USA so we'll never get a title change like AJ did.
Big shout out to AJWF who I saw in the crowd.
Overall ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ rating for the show.
Can’t wait to see which ppv we get next year. No rumblings at the moment but we will keep you updated.
