The Confrontation

It’s no secret the Welsh superstars and former NXT UK Tag Team Champions Mark Andrews and Flash Morgan Webster are not fans of Eddie Dennis, but after recent backstage attacks, it has become apparent this has become a blood feud.

On this week’s edition of NXT UK, the former champions will confront Eddie about his actions over the past few weeks. While it’s certain, the former teacher takes a psychological approach before his physical encounters, but this is new Eddie Dennis, the likes none of us have seen before. What will happen when these three men are in the same ring? Will Eddie’s likely proteges in Pretty Deadly be involved?

Return of the King

By estimation, Jordan Devlin should be recognized as the NXT Cruiserweight Champion holding it for 276 days, a record for the title’s short lineage. Then came the pandemic, a tournament for the interim title, and as stated by Devlin, the interim tag suddenly dropped, making Santos Escobar the current holder of the championship.

On this week’s edition of NXT UK, the rightful air to the throne as king of the cruiserweights return to action as Jordan Devlin will see his first taste of action in almost 7 months! Brash, cocky, and arrogant, the current/former champion will surely be in a nasty mood as the Irish Ace will surely do his best to make a statement on being the champion all brands should recognize.
