NXT UK features Wolfgang battling Gradwell, savage Six-Man Tag Team Match
On an action-packed edition of NXT UK, Wolfgang is set to tangle with Sam Gradwell in the first round of the NXT UK Heritage Cup No. 1 Contenders’ Tournament, while Oliver Carter, Ashton Smith and Saxon Huxley will join forces for a heated melee with Symbiosis. Plus, the WWE Universe will be treated to a replay of NXT TakeOver 36’s harrowing NXT UK Championship Match between WALTER and Ilja Dragunov!
Brutality has been the name of the game thus far in the eight-Superstar tournament, and Wolfgang and Gradwell are all but certain to continue the trend when they lock horns.
The Last King of Scotland is in the middle of a “friendly competition” with his Gallus brothers to find out which member can achieve the most success as a singles competitor. The boisterous Gradwell is just as fond of trading haymakers as he is talking smack, meaning he should be right at home in an NXT UK Heritage Cup Rules Match.
Carter and Smith don’t seem to have much in common with the crazed Huxley other than the simple fact that they’ve all run afoul of Eddie Dennis, T-Bone and Primate in recent weeks.
Huxley, who recently defeated Dennis but suffered a vicious three-on-one beatdown after the bell, finally gets a fair fight against his tormentors now that he’ll be backed up by one of the most talented tag teams in NXT UK.
Finally, the WWE Universe can kick back and watch a replay of a bona fide Match of the Year candidate, as NXT UK will conclude with another look at The Mad Russian’s epic NXT UK Title Match victory over The Ring General.
