NXT UK results: June 19, 2019: Kay Lee Ray wins historic Battle Royal to earn an NXT UK Women’s Title opportunity
NXT UK emerged from the Download Festival in Scotland, as Kay Lee Ray won the first-ever NXT UK Women’s Battle Royal to earn the right to challenge NXT UK Women’s Champion Toni Storm at a date of her choosing. Plus, Imperium target Travis Banks and much more.
Kassius Ohno continued his quest to educate NXT UK on “real British wrestling” by taking on Kenny Williams. Although Williams hit him with a back elbow off the top rope for the near-fall, Ohno proved more fortunate than The Lucky Yin when he caught his opponent in the ropes and delivered an earth-shattering elbow of his own to give him the three-count.
Imperium confirm Alexander Wolfe in their ranks; WALTER to battle Banks in one week
After the surprise emergence of Alexander Wolfe helped give Imperium a controversial victory over British Strong Style one week ago, all four members of the “Absolute Power” faction came before the extremely spirited NXT UK Universe to acknowledge that Wolfe is indeed one of them and that their “sacred” alliance is now complete.
WALTER then turned his attention to Travis Banks, who won a high-stakes Fatal 4-Way Match several weeks ago to earn the right to challenge the WWE United Kingdom Champion. The Ring General took it upon himself to reveal that NXT UK General Manager Johnny Saint had scheduled their title match for next week.
The Kiwi Buzzsaw wasted little time answering the call, emerging to make it clear that WALTER had better bring everything he’s got to their imminent clash!
Gallus’ Mark Coffey & Wolfgang def. The Hunt
After suffering a brutal sneak attack at the hands of Gallus two weeks ago, The Hunt set out to unleash their wrath on Mark Coffey & Wolfgang in a knockdown, drag-out slugfest. However, despite The Hunt’s animalistic offensive from the opening bell, Coffey used the steel steps to take down Wild Boar outside the ring. This left Primate to suffer a hard kick from Coffey into Wolfgang’s devastating powerslam to give the duo another big win.
In the aftermath, Joe Coffey joined his brothers to deliver a post-match beatdown to Wild Boar & Primate. This drew “Bomber” Dave Mastiff to the ring, who suffered his own Gallus assault several weeks ago. Though Gallus chose to leave and fight another day, the standoff made it clear that the fans have not seen the last of this conflict.
Kay Lee Ray emerged victorious in first-ever NXT UK Women’s Battle Royal
In the main event, the first-ever NXT UK Women’s Battle Royal was held to determine who would earn the right to challenge NXT UK Women’s Champion Toni Storm.
Out of the fierce melee that included a plethora of top Superstars, Kay Lee Ray outlasted the likes of Piper Niven, Rhea Ripley, Isla Dawn, Jinny, Jazzy Gabert, Nina Samuels, Xia Brookside, Candy Floss, Killer Kelly, Rhio and Kanji to win the epic free-for-all. Although Ray had been sent crashing to the ringside floor mid-match, she wasn’t thrown over the top rope. She reentered the action at just the right moment and sent her only remaining opponent, Brookside, over the top rope to reign supreme.
With her victory, a very dangerous Ray can now come after Storm at a date of her choosing.
