WWE NXT UK results, Oct. 22, 2020: WALTER and Ilja Dragunov’s contract signing devolves into complete carnage
WALTER and Ilja Dragunov signed the contract for next week’s NXT United Kingdom Championship showdown, but the proceedings quickly became unruly with both men destroying each other. Elsewhere, Trent Seven became the final Superstar to advance to the second round of the NXT UK Heritage Cup with a hard-fought win over Kenny Williams, Eddie Dennis picked up a win in his first action since NXT UK’s relaunch, and more.
Eddie Dennis def. Oliver Carter
Oliver Carter had Eddie Dennis on his heels in The Welsh Dragon’s first action since NXT UK’s relaunch, countering a Severn Bridge attempt and blasting him with a superkick. But Dennis found the mark in a big way with his second attempt, planting Carter for the victory.
Afterward, Dennis extended an invitation to Flash Morgan Webster and Mark Andrews for a “special mediation” last week after insinuating that Webster was the one who left Andrews lying backstage earlier this month.
Nina Samuels craves the spotlight, and no one knows that fact better than Amale, as their brief partnership imploded in a previous Tag Team bout. But Samuels was the one with the last laugh, hitting The Final Act to pick up the win over The French Hope.
Trent Seven def. Kenny Williams in a Heritage Cup First Round Match
Trent Seven and Kenny Williams fought to a stalemate through two rounds with neither Superstar able to carve out a decisive advantage. The Don scored the bout’s first fall in Round 3 after a seven-star lariat, though Williams roared back to even the tally at 1 in Round 4. Williams appeared poised to pull off the upset in the final round when he hit a top-rope hurricanrana, but Seven masterfully rolled through with a jacknife cover to advance.
WALTER and Ilja Dragunov’s contract signing turned into an all-out melee
The NXT United Kingdom Champion and his challenger were mostly silent as they signed on the dotted line until Ilja Dragunov began to yell “Unbesiegbar,” only to be met with a blistering slap by WALTER. The Ring General soon lit Dragunov’s chest up with more strikes before The Mad Russian fought out of a potential powerbomb attempt. The fighting spilled outside the ring, where the brawl sent both men barreling through the ringside barricade in a scene of carnage.
Dragunov left WALTER with an image to stew over, picking up his title and brandishing it before tossing it at him one week before they finally go head to head.
