WWE NXT UK TakeOver Blackpool: 3 best matches from the PPV
- Check out the best matches of the first NXT UK TakeOver
#1 Pete Dunne vs. Joe Coffey
The main event of NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool was a duel for the WWE United Kingdom Championship that ended in Pete Dunne’s victory over Joe Coffey. Dunne won this title on May 20, 2017 and his reign has already exceeded 600 days. Due to the duration of this match (34 minutes and 15 seconds) we could see the best of the arsenal of both wrestlers.
There were many moments to stand out in this match. On Dunne's part, we saw a Moonsault, German Suplexes and a lot of kicks at Coffey's head trying to escape a submission. On the other hand, the best of Coffey were two Powerbombs. The first was on the edge of the ring and the second from the top rope.
Throughout the match, Dunne made a total of three Bitter Ends (Pumphandle reverse STO). After the execution of the third, Dunne tried the pin but Coffey managed to get rid. Then Dunne applied his characteristic submission to the fingers of his rival, who ended up surrendering.
In this way, Pete Dunne retained his title and continues to hold in his possession the most important title of NXT UK. Dunne had previously successfully defended his title against WWE superstars such as Kyle O'Reilly, Roderick Strong, Johnny Gargano, Adam Cole and Ricochet.
