Dragunov and Gradwell to renew hostilities in wild brawl


In addition to the titanic title clash between NXT UK Women’s Champion Kay Lee Ray and Meiko Satomura, NXT UK will also play host to what seems certain to be a slugfest between Ilja Dragunov and Sam Gradwell, a tag team bout pitting Ashton Smith and Oliver Carter against Kenny Williams and Amir Jordan, and Tyler Bate’s appearance on the latest edition of Noam Dar’s “Supernova Sessions.”

Dragunov has seemingly struggled to control his emotions ever since narrowly coming up short in a harrowing NXT Championship Match against WALTER. While Dragunov has continued to win matches, he often becomes blind with rage and subsequently brutalizes his opponents.

Gradwell has picked up on this trend, as well, and the antagonistic Superstar has seized every opportunity to provoke the unhinged Dragunov, particularly during The Mad Russian’s one-on-one clash with Tyson T-Bone, which saw Gradwell repeatedly belittle his newfound rival from ringside.

What will happen now that the two brawlers are finally set to collide?

Don’t miss a must-see edition of NXT UK, streaming today at 3 ET/8 GMT on the award-winning WWE Network!
