Dragunov and Gradwell to slug it out in No Disqualification Match on NXT UK


Sam Gradwell is among the best trash talkers in WWE, especially when he’s locked on to his favorite target, Ilja Dragunov.

Only time will tell if Gradwell went a bit too far during his latest rant, however; during last week’s edition of NXT UK, Gradwell berated Dragunov in the backstage area and claimed he could defeat his rival in any type of match. When Gradwell included No Disqualification Match in his lengthy list, Dragunov quickly interjected and calmly told him that the stipulation “works for me.”

Now, two of NXT UK’s fiercest Superstars will indeed look to settle the score in a lawless bout on NXT UK.

And in a continuation of one of the fastest-intensifying rivalries in NXT UK, Jack Starz and Joseph Conners will slug it out in what seems certain to be a heated encounter.

Starz recently aligned with Piper Niven, who found herself outnumbered in her ongoing conflict with Jinny and Conners, and the unlikely pairing recently joined forces to take down their adversaries in a wild Mixed Tag Team Match.

Plus, Josh Morrell and Danny Jones will tangle with the dangerous Primate and T-Bone, Aleah James and Isla Dawn are primed to go one-on-one, and Noam Dar will welcome Trent Seven to the latest edition of “Supernova Sessions.”
