Fabian Aichner def. Eddie Ryan
One week after a distraction from Mark Andrews caused him to lose to Flash Morgan Webster, Fabian Aichner reemerged to take on hometown hero, the highly-respected “English Lion” Eddie Ryan.
In his first match on NXT UK, Ryan fared well against his opponent in the early goings, feeding off the crown in Plymouth, but when he took way too long to deliver a dive to the outside, the aggressive Aichner quickly climbed back through the ropes and connected with a fierce backbreaker counter-offensive.
Ryan roared back with a high-impact spinning uppercut off the second rope, but when the contest moved outside the ring in the final moments, Aichner drove his opponent into the ring steps before once again taking the “shortcut” by delivering a knee to his opponent against the unforgiving steel. He then followed up his attack with the spinning powerbomb for the win.
