For all their critics, Sam Stoker and Lewis Howley have proven as resourceful as they are fashionable, often retaining their titles by the skin of their teeth. Of course, their willingness to bend and flat-out break the rules has worked in their favor on multiple occasions, but have they finally met their match in the menacing Coffey brothers?
Mark and Joe also have no qualms about winning by any means necessary, either. And with a simple game plan of throwing fists now and asking questions later, Gallus seem certain to present a strong challenge to the titleholders.
Speaking of high-stakes bouts, the NXT UK Heritage Cup No. 1 Contender’s Tournament continues with the first of two semifinal matchups, as Kenny Williams and Noam Dar meet in a collision of two of the most underhanded competitors on the brand.
The Scum of the Earth took down Oliver Carter in the opening round, while The Scottish Supernova edged Mark Andrews, but only one can advance to the tournament finale.
Plus, after ending WALTER’s 870-day reign by securing a tapout victory in dramatic fashion, newly crowned NXT UK Champion Ilja Dragunov will address the WWE Universe. What will he say, and will a new challenger emerge?
Finally, Emilia McKenzie is primed to battle Stevie Turner.
