Match 2: Amir Jordan & Kenny Williams vs. Saxon Huxley & Tyson T-Bone
Summary: Saxon Huxley and Tyson T-Bone controlled much of the opening stages against Amir Jordan. Once Kenny Williams tagged in, the match turned around and the fan favourites began to take control. In the end, after synchronised dives to the outside to take out their opponents, Jordan hit a Swanton from the top rope on Huxley to get the 1-2-3. Following the match, the victorious duo celebrated like they’d won the tag titles.
Verdict: This match only reinforced my belief that NXT UK plays it too safe. Exhibition match, exhibition match, exhibition match. The best thing about the show is the vignettes and interviews, like with Eddie Dennis in the first few episodes. We need to know more about these characters. The match was good, but why should we be invested in these four guys? Give us some interviews, vignettes, character explanations. Give viewers a reason to care!
