The latest episode of WWE NXT UK aired on Wednesday, February 20. Here is a recap of what happened on the show…
Match 1: Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster vs. Mark Coffey & Joe Coffey
Summary: Much of this match revolved around the dominant Coffey Brothers preventing Mark Andrews from making a tag. When Flash Morgan Webster finally entered the match, he began to turn things around for the fan favourite tag team, notably connecting with a hurricanrana on Joe Coffey from the ring apron. Andrews and Webster continued their spell of offence, landing synchronised dives onto their opponents on the outside, but the Coffeys took control again when Mark Coffey took out Andrews at ringside before hitting a huge lariat on Webster to pick up the win.
Verdict: Good start to the show. It obviously feels like somewhat of a backward step for Joe Coffey to be involved in the tag title picture when he was previously the #1 contender for the United Kingdom Championship, but at least he is getting involved in a new storyline straight away. This was another decent match but nothing we haven’t seen before from these duos.
