NXT UK results from Feb. 27, 2019: The Grizzled Young Veterans best Lorcan & Burch in NXT UK Tag Team Title Match
In an explosive episode of NXT UK, NXT UK Tag Team Champions Zack Gibson & James Drake reigned supreme over NXT’s Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch, Tyler Bate overcame WWE 205 Live’s Gentleman Jack Gallagher, Jordan Devlin launched a sneak attack on Travis Banks, and WALTER took down Kassius Ohno.
Tyler Bate def. Gentleman Jack Gallagher
“One third of British Strong Style, one half of Moustache Mountain, but one Strong Boi.” Like his partner Trent Seven last week, Tyler Bate stepped off the mountain to tangle with WWE 205 Live’s exceptionally proficient grappler Gentleman Jack Gallagher.
The resulting match was a technical masterpiece that also featured a few wicked strikes. The two determined competitors suddenly engaged in a series of 35 lightning-fast pinfall attempts/counter attempts, an occurrence that truly gave the referee an aerobic workout as he continuously slammed his hand into the mat.
As they emerged from the spirited back-and-forth, Bate had the presence of mind to hook his opponent to the canvas and pick up the quick victory.
Jordan Devlin attacked Travis Banks at the Performance Center
In the ongoing volatile war between Travis Banks and Jordan Devlin, The Irish Ace made good on his recent threats to The Kiwi Buzzsaw when he pulled him off the ring apron during an in-ring drill at the UK Performance Center, igniting an out-of-control brawl between the two competitors that eventually led to the announcement of NXT UK’s first-ever Falls Count Anywhere Match for next week.
WALTER def. Kassius Ohno
In a matchup of sheer brutality, WALTER went head-to-head with his most difficult challenge since joining NXT UK in the form of Kassius Ohno, who was making first appearance on the rising brand.
Without question, Ohno gave The Austrian Anomaly a truly painful run for his money, but when he missed a critical Moonsault off the top turnbuckle in the final moments, WALTER made him pay for it, showing incredible agility by blasting his prey with an explosive dropkick and the follow-up Powerbomb for the win.
NXT UK Tag Team Champions Zack Gibson & James Drake def. Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch
In a highly-contentious main event showdown, The Grizzled Young Veterans defended their NXT UK Tag Team Championship for the very first time against NXT’s Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch.
The four rugged Superstars fought tooth-and-nail for the championship gold, pummeling each other with everything they had to leave Phoenix with the titles.
In the final moments of the championship fight, the challengers seemed to be closing in on the titles when they hoisted James Drake up before hitting him with a thunderous high-angle DDT, but Drake somehow kicked out of the deadly maneuver by the narrowest of margins.
Moments later, Zack Gibson sent Lorcan off the ropes and crashing down to the ringside floor. Although Burch somehow kicked out of the follow-up pin attempt — even with Gibson holding Drake’s feet on the ropes — the titleholders quickly regrouped and hit The Ticket to Mayhem to vanquish the challengers.
