NXT UK results, Jan. 16, 2019: Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel overcome Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster
Just days after Zack Gibson & James Drake became the first-ever NXT UK Tag Team Champions at TakeOver: Blackpool, Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel reigned supreme over Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster in another explosive tag team encounter. Plus, Jinny took down Isla Dawn, and Ligero scored another huge win over the rugged Saxon Huxley.
Ligero def. Saxon Huxley
The unorthodox Saxon Huxley looked to take the “Hero’s journey” in a tough contest against the high-flying Ligero. Despite Huxley’s efforts, however, the Leeds Luchador rose above, gliding his way through the middle rope to hit a devastating stunner before executing the C4L Springboard DDT for another huge win.
Jinny def. Isla Dawn
Following Isla Dawn’s loss to then-NXT UK Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley several weeks ago, Jinny mocked the defeated competitor by calling her a “failure.” That coupled with The Fashionista’s sneak attack on The White Witch last week left little doubt that the two Superstars would lay into each other during their inevitable matchup.
In the final moments of a battle pitting Dawn’s strength and desire against the sheer tenacity of the vicious Jinny, The Fashionista caught Dawn on the turnbuckle and planted her face-first into the canvas with the middle-rope X-Factor for the victory.
Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel def. Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster
ust days after the history-making, first-ever NXT UK TakeOver in Blackpool, MarMark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster went looking for retribution against Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel.
The explosive tag team showdown took both combinations to the absolute limit, and despite incredible athleticism from the young Welshmen, the “European Connection” reigned supreme. Shortly after the nefarious Aichner took out Andrews with another controversial knee into the ringside barricade, he and Barthel used a 2-on-1 assault to finish The Modfather with a spinning powerbomb/European uppercut combination.
