NXT UK : Full Details

Noam Dar def. Travis Banks

Although Travis Banks missed the inaugural NXT UK TakeOver in Blackpool after being attacked by Jordan Devlin back in January, The Kiwi Buzzsaw journeyed to Cardiff ready to take full advantage of the big TakeOver stage against the outspoken Noam Dar.

In the early moments of an explosive contest, Banks seemed to injure his shoulder as well as his knee, and Dar attacked the weak spots like a shark that smelled blood. But the resilient Banks battled through the pain, opening the door for both skilled competitors to leave it all on the mat with an inedible display of high-octane offense that produced near-fall after near-fall. Banks got within an eyelash of victory when he tattooed Dar with a Slice of Heaven off the ring barricade before executing a double stomp off the top rope, but Dar kicked out at the last possible second.

Cesaro def. Ilja Dragunov

Earlier this week, Cesaro informed the WWE Universe that he was coming to NXT UK TakeOver to take a “hands-on approach.” After Cesaro emerged in Wales to issue an open challenge, Ilja Dragunov answered the call, and the stage was set for an impromptu showdown between the highly decorated WWE Superstar and the NXT UK upstart.

Cesaro took the early upper hand, unceremoniously tossing Dragunov over the top rope and out to the hard ringside floor and spinning him in the Cesaro Swing to the tune of 40 rotations!

Dragunov fired back with a fury, as both men unleashed a series of high-impact maneuvers that thrilled the Wales fans.

When Dragunov appeared to be going for the Tornado Moscow in the final moments, Cesaro suddenly countered, throwing his opponent into the air and catching him with the uppercut on the way back down before finally finishing him off with the Neutralizer.

Although it looked as if Cesaro was going to execute a post-match attack on the defeated Dragunov, he stopped short to shake his hand and embrace him instead. (Holy) Moscow indeed!

Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster def. The Grizzled Young Veterans and Gallus to capture the NXT UK Tag Team Titles

When Flash Morgan Webster returned from injury, NXT UK General Manager Johnny Saint decreed that he and Mark Andrews would have to earn a title match and that winning a pair of singles matches would be the only way to do so.

Webster and Andrews each prevailed in their singles bouts, earning entry into the NXT UK Tag Team Championship Match that also featured defending champions The Grizzled Young Veterans and Gallus’ Mark Coffey & Wolfgang.

In the three-way tag team encounter that followed, the distinctly different tandems fought tooth-and-nail in a back-and-forth struggle for momentum inside and outside the ring that garnished near-falls for each team and truly reflected the magnitude of the prize at stake.

Moments later, he and Drake capitalized when they hit a Ticket to Mayhem that looked like it would be the decisive blow. When Gibson instructed Drake to dive out of the ring to flatten Gallus and prevent them from breaking up the pinfall, however, he left himself open for Andrews to hit Fall to Pieces. Gibson never saw him coming, and the awe-inspiring maneuver cleared the way for the boys from Wales to emerge triumphant before their electrified home crowd!

The thrilling title victory means Webster & Andrews have made history, as they are the first Welsh-born champions in WWE history.

Kay Lee Ray def. Toni Storm to capture the NXT UK Women’s Championship

Kay Lee Ray earned her opportunity to challenge her one-time friend Toni Storm for the NXT UK Women’s Title by surviving the first-ever NXT UK Women’s Battle Royal, but the devious challenger waged war against the titleholder with a series of anything-goes mind games in the weeks leading to TakeOver, throwing their friendship out the window.

From the start, Storm had a different look in her eye in the highly personal showdown, as she attempted to make Ray pay for her words in recent weeks. The crafty Ray roared back, however, and the fiery showdown featured no shortage of haymakers and edge-of-your-seat moments, as Storm and Ray narrowly kicked out of each other’s finishing maneuver to the shock of the WWE Universe.

WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER def. Tyler Bate

The main event of NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff was more than a contest for the WWE United Kingdom Title; it was a battle for the very heart and soul of NXT UK, pitting the leader of Imperium WALTER against Moustache Mountain’s Tyler Bate.

The match was a true battle of intestinal fortitude and pure guts as both competitors kept the pedal to the metal from start to finish and gave every bit of themselves for 40 minutes of pure mayhem.

At the start, Bate stayed with the physically imposing titleholder with maneuvers like the big slam -- the first of many incredible feats of strength by the challenger -- and an electric hurricanrana. When he dove at the massive Ring General through the ropes, however, WALTER caught him, hurled his prey onto the ring apron with a massive powerbomb and began decimating Bate inside and outside the ring.

After a series of quick countermoves, Tyler Bate sends WALTER flying from the ring in a battle for The Ring General’s WWE United Kingdom Championship: Courtesy of WWE Network.

No matter what was thrown at him, the relentless Bate fought back with incomparable desire. The leader of Imperium continued to punish his challenger with an arsenal that included countless vicious chops and submissions like the Boston crab, a crossface and a three-quarter nelson from the back.

The remorseless champion continued to punish his foe with a series of excruciating sleepers and a sleeper suplex that served as a precursor to WALTER dropping down on his prey from the top rope, the same sequence that nearly destroyed Pete Dunne. Still, Bate refused to quit, firing back with efforts like an exploder suplex off the apron that sent WALTER crashing down to the ringside floor, a superhuman suplex, the airplane spin, the Burning Hammer, another exploder suplex off the off the top rope and the Tyler Driver, all of which nearly allowed him to become the first two-time United Kingdom Champion.

Finally, after both competitors left every bit of themselves on the canvas, a thunderous clothesline from WALTER finally brought down Bate for the three-count in a struggle that will go down as a match for the ages.

Now that WALTER has conquered Bate, who will oppose the dominant champion and the rest of Imperium, who have taken full control of NXT UK?
