The show opened with a package for tonight’s main event as Tyler Bate defends the NXT UK Heritage Cup against Noam Dar, before we hear from our commentators Andy Shepard and Nigel McGuiness as they also hype the main event before kicking it to the ring for the opening match.
Mark Coffey with Wolfgang vs Rohan Raja with Teoman
Mark Coffey took the early advantage with mixture of power and technical wrestling until Raja forced them to the ropes where he trapped the arm of Coffey, Raja then begins to systematically target Coffey’s arm. Coffey tries to power through the pain as he looked to get back into the match with a big clothesline, shoulder block and middle rope diving bulldog but a big spine buster from Raja cut him off, Raja goes for the pin following a back stabber but Coffey kicked out. Raja missed the double knees as Coffey got out of the corner and Raja crashed and burned before then being hit by a running enziguri to the face from Coffey who followed up with a running sliding elbow stunning Raja long enough to get the pin fall.
Post match Teoman and Raja attacked Coffey and Wolfgang having to be broken up by referees and staff from the back, so although the Gallus boys picked up the win it was Teoman and Raja who left Coffey and Wolfgang laying in the ring.

Amale took complete control of the match not letting up for a moment as her and Grace battle in the ring, Blair Davenport came down to the ring. Grace fights back with some impressive offence as she showcased her agility and athleticism but Amale shut her down hard before hitting a devastating spinebuster to pick up the win by pin fall.
