Good afternoon Fight Fans, and welcome to our coverage of today's edition of WWE NXT UK!
The Hunt vs Imperium (Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner)
Primate and Fabian get things started off by locking up before they try to knock each other over until Aichner hits a kitchen sink and locks in a straight armbar. Primate tags in Mike, but Marcel gets the blind tag and Marcel drops Mike from behind before he keeps Mike grounded with a shoulder lock. Mike comes back with a flurry of strikes before Marcel shoves him down and beats on him in the corner before Fabian hits several backbreakers for a two count. Fabian and Marcel double up on Mike before Fabian boots Primate off of the apron and Primate rushes in as soon as he gets the tag and sends Marcel out of the ring. Mike misses a spear and Imperium hit a double drive by dropkick and hit their finisher, a diving uppercut powerbomb for the pin and the win.
Winner: Imperium defeat The Hunt via pinfall when they hit Mike with their finisher.
