Only half way through this week’s episode, not sure I’m that keen on Gallus losing 4 days before the ladder match in Blackpool, even if it was by shady means to UE, I’d have held that match off till next week imo

Does anyone even watch NXT UK though? 

I didn’t even know there was a Takeover this weekend until you mentioned it.

Made up with the Alex Shelley announcement. I’ve not seen much of his ROH stuff but hopefully he can still go and this leads to a full-time gig. Always been a favourite. 

FWIW, when people started suggesting he'd be the mystery partner when the bracket came out, he was quite adamant on Twitter that his physical therapy job was both his main income and main focus and therefore "wrestling during the week is impossible". Obviously that was a bit of a diversionary tactic (learned well from Big Kev) but it would be interesting to see what he'd do if a contract offer were to be made, as I know he credits having a passion for the PT job with getting him through a divorce and a period of depression so he might not be so willing to let it go. I'd love to see it though, he's probably in my top 10 favourites of all time.

Noticed the last few weeks that whilst the WWE logo is still there, it's not quite as prominent as it has been in the past - the refs now have an NXT logo on their shirts, the logo in the bottom corner of the screen is now "NXT live" rather than "WWE live" etc. Be interesting to see if they lose it from the barricades too, which is where it remains most prominent now.

Commentary was abysmal as usual. All three of them really struggled with Kay Lee Ray & Candice Le Rae both being in the same match, and couldn't seem to  recall who was on what team either. There were several other slips of the tongue & moments of idiocy too, but I think Nigel referring to the "tyrannical tyrants" of Imperium was probably this week's nadir.

Not a great ending to BT Sport's first live broadcast of NXT either. If I hadn't already spoiled the outcome of that match for myself on Twitter I might have been more annoyed.
