WWE NXT UK results: June 17, 2021
Wolfgang def. Sam Gradwell
If you favor a blistering exchange of rights and lefts over catch-as-catch-can submission holds, this was the bout for you.
In an encounter between two of the toughest competitors on the brand, Wolfgang and Sam Gradwell traded fists, forearms and elbows with reckless abandon from the opening bell until the final three-count.
And although Gradwell barked at his opponent on his march to the ring – and during the match itself – The Last King of Scotland nevertheless bashed The Thunderstorm with a headbutt and nearly speared him out of his boots to earn the win, despite wearing a battle wound above his left eye.
Kenny Williams def. Danny Jones
Not too many competitors would embrace a nickname like “The Scum of the Earth,” but Kenny Williams isn’t just any NXT UK Superstar.
After ruthlessly attacking his longtime tag team partner Amir Jordan in a Loser Leaves NXT UK Match several weeks ago, Williams is as arrogant as ever, and his cockiness was on full display in his matchup with Danny Jones.
Jones struck Williams with a wicked enzuigiri and had his opponent reeling, but “The Scum of the Earth” took out Jones at the knee and picked up the win with Bad Luck.
Jordan Devlin challenged the NXT UK roster on “Supernova Sessions”
Sporting shades and a scowl, Jordan Devlin joined Noam Dar on “Supernova Sessions.”
Dar mentioned that he was expecting The Irish Ace to join his show with the NXT Cruiserweight Title, but Devlin insisted that “just because someone can run up a ladder faster than you, it doesn’t make them the better man.”
After The Scottish Supernova gave him the floor, Devlin declared himself “the franchise player” of NXT UK and dared anyone to attempt to prove him wrong.
Nathan Frazer def. Rohan Raja
Nathan Frazer entered his bout against Rohan Raja having won five of his last six singles matches, and he looked to keep the good times rolling.
Raja, who returned from a gruesome arm injury at the hands of Teoman, seemed to be sporting a newfound intensity in his first bout back, which was highlighted by a pop-up powerbomb that yielded a long two-count. Unfortunately for Raja, his spirited effort was all for naught when Frazer landed a headbutt and a beautiful frog splash for the 1-2-3.
The Superstars exchanged nods of respect, but they were interrupted when an eye (possibly that of Teoman’s) appeared on the TitanTron.
Subculture def. Joseph Conners and Jinny
Since forming Subculture several weeks ago, Mark Andrews, Flash Morgan Webster and Dani Luna have been seeking a signature victory, and they earned one when Webster and Luna took on Joseph Conners and Jinny.
As NXT UK Tag Team Champions Pretty Deadly offered their unique perspectives on the combatants from the announce table, Conners blistered Webster with a series of strikes, but Luna claimed the upper hand for her squad when she took down Jinny with an assortment of suplexes.
With Webster and Conners at the ringside area, Luna began effortlessly flinging The Fashionista around the ring. The men soon rejoined the action, and while Luna hurled Conners out of the ring, Jinny took advantage by landing a DDT on Luna, who barely kicked out.
Subculture claimed the win when Luna clocked Jinny with a kick and Webster landed a picture-perfect 450 Splash to pin Conners.
