NXT UK Feb. 6, 2019: WALTER triumphs over Gallus’ Mark Coffey
One week after his NXT UK in-ring debut, WALTER delivered an earth-shattering blow to Gallus with a strong victory over Mark Coffey. Plus, Joe Coffey set out to reclaim his kingdom against Ashton Smith, Ligero overcame Mark Andrews, Josephs Connors tamed “Wild Boar” Mike Hitchman, and Rhea Ripley viciously assaulted NXT UK Women’s Champion Toni Storm, Xia Brookside and Candy Floss.
Ligero def. Mark Andrews
In an explosive opening matchup between two of NXT UK’s elite high-flyers, Ligero and Mark Andrews each unleashed a barrage of high-impact offense that took both competitors to the limit. The Leodensian Luchador claimed the huge victory when he lifted his knees to block his opponent’s Shooting Star Press attempt and quickly followed up with the C4L off the ropes.
Xia Brookside def. Candy Floss
In a hard-fought contest between two incredible athletes, second-generation grappler Xia Brookside overcame the aggressive efforts of Candy Floss to score her very first NXT UK singles victory with the Brooksy Bomb, a variation of the Iconoclasm finishing maneuver used by her legendary father Robbie Brookside.
However, the post-match display of good sportsmanship between the two opponents was quickly cut short by an irate Rhea Ripley, who took out Brookside and Floss with a vicious assault. Then, when NXT UK Women’s Champion Toni Storm entered the fray, The Mosh Pit Kidd used Brookside to get the drop on the titleholder as well, taking Storm out with a fierce kick before driving her into the canvas.
Having already petitioned NXT UK General Manager Johnny Saint for a rematch against Storm, Ripley made a definitive statement that she is coming for “her” title.
Josephs Connors def. “Wild Boar” Mike Hitchman
Frustrated over not being a part of NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool, Joseph Connors brought the full weight of his dark attitude against a very game Mike Hitchman, powerbombing his opponent off the top turnbuckle and hitting Don’t Look Down for the three-count.
Joe Coffey def. Ashton Smith
Looking to reaffirm that NXT UK is still “his kingdom,” Gallus’ Joe Coffey rebounded from his NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool defeat to WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne with a win over Ashton Smith.
After stopping Smith in his tracks by catching his opponent in mid-air to hit the German suplex, Coffey finished him off with All the Best for the Bells.
WALTER def. Mark Coffey
With Joe Coffey’s victory over Ashton Smith still fresh in the books, Gallus’ retribution-minded Mark Coffey emerged for NXT UK’s main event looking to make WALTER pay for stealing his brother’s spotlight at NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool.
The Austrian Anomaly simply would not have it. Following in the footsteps of what Nigel McGuinness called “the most impressive ring debut in NXT UK” one week ago, WALTER unleashed one of his infamous chops right at the start of the match.
When Coffey went on the attack, the intense competitor stood in front of his opponent and voluntarily absorbed every bit of the punishment the Gallus strongman could throw at him before lifting his foe with ease into a devastating German suplex. He went on dominant run, stomping and stretching his prey over the top rope and hurling him onto the ring apron like a ragdoll.
WALTER picked up the victory when he countered Coffey’s efforts with a devastating dropkick before finishing the fight with an earth-shattering powerbomb.
