Zack Gibson & James Drake def. “Wild Boar” Mike Hitchman & “Primate” Jay Melrose
One episode after General Manager Johnny Saint announced the first Semifinals Match for the forthcoming NXT UK Tag Team Championship, pitting Moustache Mountain against Gallus’ Mark Coffey & Wolfgang, Zack Gibson & James Drake made it clear they will not be denied their place in the tournament when they took on the strange combination of “Wild Boar” Mike Hitchman & “Primate” Jay Melrose.
Withstanding an absolutely animalistic assault from their opponents throughout the match, Gibson pulled Drake out of the way as Hitchman was charging to the corner, sending their opponent flying into the turnbuckle and setting up Ticket to Ride for the victory.
As the dust cleared, Gibson staked his team’s claim to the forthcoming NXT UK Tag Team Titles while mercilessly belittling the crowd in his home city of Liverpool.
