A can’t-miss episode of NXT UK will see Oliver Carter and Ashton Smith challenge Mustache Mountain for the NXT UK Tag Team Championship, Amale tangle with Xia Brookside, and more.
Carter and Smith endured a long and arduous journey to that title fight, having teamed up for nearly two and a half years before finally getting their first shot at a gold medal fight.
Most recently, Carter and Smith emerged victorious in a four-team No. 1 tournament by defeating Symbiosis in the semifinals and knocking down Dave Mastiff and Jack Starz in the final.
Mustache Mountain, arguably the most successful tandem in NXT UK history, is the final hurdle for Oliver and Carter, although Tyler Bate and Trent Seven have been firing on all cylinders since their team’s reformation.
In fact, they are undefeated since Bate lost his NXT UK Heritage Cup to Noam Dar in a controversial conclusion that came about when Seven inadvertently threw in the towel to give The Scottish Supernova the win. With both tandems on fire in recent months, what will happen in the high-stakes championship collision?
Amale, meanwhile, picked up a pair of impressive wins over Myla Grace and Stevie Turner before falling to Jinny, who cheated to win.
Now The French Hope are looking for a resounding victory against Xia Brookside, who hasn’t been shy about complaining to assistant general manager Sid Scala – or anyone else who will listen – that she’s entitled to more opportunities. .
Additionally, after Rohan Raja and Charlie Dempsey took Teoman’s ear last week, Raja will take on Danny Jones, and NXT UK Women’s Champion Meiko Satomura is set to be honored by NXT UK management for her immense contributions to the brand. .
Tune in to a wild edition of NXT UK, airing Thursday at 3 ET/8 GMT on Peacock in the US and WWE Network everywhere else!
