Pretty Deadly to challenge Gallus, Brookside to collide with Samuels on NXT UK
After months of bad blood, Gallus and Pretty Deadly finally collide for the NXT UK Tag Team Titles, which have been held by Mark Coffey and Wolfgang for well over a year.
Coffey and Wolfgang, who unseated Flash Morgan Webster and Mark Andrews to win the titles all the way back in October 2019, have out-brawled several tough challengers during their championship reign, including Primate and Wild Boar, Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan, and Fabian Aichner and Marcel Barthel.
Pretty Deadly seemingly face an uphill battle to dethrone the titleholders, though Lewis Howley and Sam Stoker have enjoyed a hot streak of their own in recent weeks, most notably earning their upcoming title bout by emerging triumphant in a Four-Way Elimination Tag Team Match against Webster and Andrews, Primate and Wild Boar, and Ashton Smith and Oliver Carter.
Xia Brookside and Nina Samuels can each boast a victory over the other, though the stakes have been significantly raised for the rubber match, as the loser will have to become the winner’s personal assistant for a month.
Samuels has been on a recent crusade, repeatedly insisting that “all a Brookside is good for is carrying my bags.” She’ll have a chance to turn her fantasy into reality with a victory over Xia, though it’s worth nothing that Samuels’ recent victory over her rival became shrouded in controversy when she struck her with a handbag to claim the pinfall.
Also, Tyler Bate is set for a tussle with Bailey Matthews, while Aoife Valkyrie and Lana Austin will collide.
