Cruiserweight Open Challenge

Champion Jordan Devlin Vs Oliver Carter

Oliver Carter was the man to answer the challenge this week as we see him back stage with his tag team partner Ashton Smith, who is pumping Carter up for the match, but it is all for naught as Jordan Devlin starts to dominate the match early on with a clever reversal flipping Carter into the ropes.

Devlin maintains control over Carter slowing down the pace of the match with aggressive strikes and punishing holds, Carter is finally able to mount a comeback as he picks up the pace of the match, landing a beautiful and punishing suicide dive.

Back in the ring Carter continues to mount the pressure with some explosive high risk offence but he can’t follow up due to the punishment he took earlier. It only takes one mistake for Devlin to regain control, he hits Carter with poison-rana after almost gifting Devlin the opportunity.

Following up with the Devlin Scythe to pick up the win by pin fall and retain his title.

Back Stage Jinny talks about Piper Niven attacking her last week, saying that for now she has nothing more to say on Piper but will strike when the time is right and tame the wild animal once again.

Supernova 11 Sessions kicks off, Noam Dar presents his new Supernova 11 Sessions from his built in setat the BT studios adjacent to the ring, his first guest is the NXT UK Heritage Cup Winner A-Kid.

Noam tries to claim that he is not A-Kid’s rival but has always been his mentor his teacher, his sensei and bestows upon the A-Kid the name A-Man.A-Kid finally stands up to shut Noam Dar up, letting him know that there was only one man who did help and that was Tyler Bate, who just happens to come out to set.

As Bate speaks on A-Kid winning the tournament whilst not being in the tournament himself, Dar twists his words getting the two to agree to match up later on that night.

A video from earlier in the week shows Eddie Dennis and the Hunt crash into Sid Scalla, demanding to be made No. 1 contenders for tag team titles having beaten the former tag team champions Mark Andrews and “Flash” Morgan Webster. Scalla said he would speak with Johnny Saint, Dennis responds by saying “you do that”.

Xia Brookside Vs Isla Dawn

The two girls show some excellent wrestling fundamentals especially from the second generation competitor Xia Brookside who shows some of the same incredible skills that once made her father, Robbie Brookside, a star in the UK Wrestling scene. Dawn shows that she can hang with the wrestling of Brookside but starts to take control when she was able to unleash her strikes, Dawn shows a new more aggressive side as she looked to punish Brookside,

Xia would fight her way back into the ring picking up the pace unleashing a flurry of hurricanranas and her broken wings in the corner.

Whilst the two ladies fight outside the ring, a stage hand brings some bags down to the ringside, back in the ring suddenly Nina Samuels appears on the big screen and informs Brookside that she is only capable of carrying her bags. This distracts Xia and Dawn is able to take advantage hitting a spinning back kick and a back drop driver to pick up the win by pinfall.

Backstage whilst Sid Scalla is doing an interview about the performance centre, Saxon Huxley suddenly bursts out of the trainer’s room screaming “Better luck next time”. Scalla heads into the training room where it becomes apparent that Huxley had attacked Levi Muir and Jack Starz who just last week told Huxley “Better Luck Next time”.
