Mark Coffey def. Sha Samuels
WWE NXT UK results: June 24, 2021
Gallus has acknowledged that all three members are involved in a “friendly competition” in the individual ranks, and with Wolfgang defeating Sam Gradwell one on one last week, Coffey kept up the pace by beating Sha Samuels in a fight.
Samuels sent Coffey staggering with a resounding spinebuster, but “The Glue of Gallus” fought back the pain to hit his foe with a wicked kick to the head and an even wilder reverse elbow to the jaw to win the victory.
After the match, Coffey raised both index fingers to indicate that he and Wolfgang each had a recent victory in singles matches.
With Joe Coffey set to compete in the NXT UK Championship No. 1 Contender Triple Threat Match in the main event, was this just the beginning of a great night for Gallus?
Stevie Turner defeat. Laura Di Matteo
Stevie Turner is clearly not the type to be jocks.
She spent a good chunk of her match teasing Laura Di Matteo, first laughing at Di Matteo’s first attempts to match her strength and then throwing her neck against the ropes and pulling her hair from her. .
Di Matteo showed her mettle, counterattacking with a rapid succession of searing punches and even escaping from a submission hold.
However, Turner dodged her opponent as she was carrying her hard, once again pulled her off the mat by her hair and pushed her face to the mat to win.
Teoman def. Oliver Carter by submission
Possibly the scariest and downright creepy competitor on NXT UK, Teoman proved why he is truly fearsome, both between the bells and long after the show concludes.
Carter began the match as if fired from a cannon, unloading himself on Teoman with several hard blows before launching himself over the top rope and annihilating his enemy on the ring floor.
As fierce as ever, Teoman planted Carter with a DDT tornado, and when Carter kicked him out, Teoman immediately transitioned to a cross to force the tapout.
With Carter in dire straits and again trapped in Teoman’s cross after the bell, Rohan Raja ran into the square circle, presumably to help Carter.
Instead, after a stare with Teoman, Raja began to shower Carter with his right hands before pinning him to the carpet. After the attack, Raja followed Teoman into the backstage area, apparently pledging his allegiance to the same man who broke his arm several weeks ago.
Ilja Dragunov defeat. Joe Coffey and Rampage Brown in a triple threat match
Given that Ilja Dragunov, Joe Coffey and Rampage Brown came as close as anyone to taking the NXT UK Championship from the seemingly unbeatable WALTER, it made sense for the three tough-as-nails competitors to engage in a hard-hitting Triple Threat Match with championship implications.
Coffey tagged Dragunov with a lasso and he could have been closing in on victory, but Brown pulled him out of the circle and knocked him down with a powerslam on the ring floor. Moments later, Brown planted Coffey with a Doctor Bomb, but Dragunov broke the count.
Dragunov broke free when Brown went for another Doctor Bomb and struck with a Moscow Torpedo, letting out an unbearable battle cry and sobbing with relief and euphoria after the decisive three count.
After Dragunov’s victory, WALTER calmly entered the ring. Although initially showing respect for the victor, he suddenly tattooed the mad Russian with a relentless slap to the face, locked him in a sleeping hug, and held his championship in the air with one foot on Dragunov’s chest.
Although Dragunov has been haunted by memories of his creepy first fight with WALTER, is he the man who can finally take the NXT UK Championship from The Ring General?
