I am ready for this match!

I am ready for a Pete Dunne versus Walter match. It is already time, in my opinion, for another NXT UK Takeover. If this is what the quality we are going to expect going forward is then we are in for some amazing NXT UK Takeovers in the future.

I feel the NXT UK brand has been the forgotten part of the WWE so far. Having so many episodes at a time to watch and being on in the middle of the day has prevented a lot of people from watching the developing brand. I think that will change after the excellent show in Blackpool.

The debut Takeover for NXT UK was an exciting show from start to finish. We had a tag team classic, a good hoss fight, some great surprises and a classic main event. We had a lot of stars created on Saturday. I am excited to see the rest of NXT UK going forward.

With all of this in mind after another fun and thrilling wrestling night, I present my list of the top five most surprising moments of NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool:

#5 Dave Mastiff is an Impressive Big Guy

That is going to hurt.
That is going to hurt.

Dave Mastiff lives up to his name. He isn’t the tallest man but at over 300 pounds he is quite a massive figure. NXT UK has spent the early months of the brand pushing Dave Mastiff as a monster. But I was surprised at how agile he looked against the much taller Eddie Dennis.

It was certainly your fun hoss fight. Dennis did a good job of doing his power moves on the much bigger Mastiff but Dave was the star of the show. His move off the top rope is something a cruiserweight usually does, not a 300-pound man. Both competitors look good going forward but Mastiff looks like a serious title contender as he stands out from the rest of the UK roster.
