    My semi-finals picks are Buddy Murphy, Pete Dunne, Devilin & Tyler Bate.

    I'd love to see Keith Lee advance but I think you will give Devilin the shine. Idea of Bate meeting Trent within the tournament after their storied history is pretty awesome and perhaps going to be the standout match of the tournament.

    Still backing Pete Dunne! Dunne vs Banks at Showcase 4 in Cardiff would be so sweet. Champion vs King. I like it.
    Cheers for the feedback dude, I'm glad to know you are still enjoying my work with the UK Brand. The General manager storyline has been a delight to go with so far and that's definitely something I've got some great plans in the tank for. The King of the Ring has truly been a lot of fun to write as I'm a big fan of tournaments as a whole and this for me is a prestigious one which I'm thrilled to be doing justice for. Bate/Seven in the tournament is definitely one which makes sense, I don't want to give too much away but there's going to be a match in the round after this which will very much be just as much as a standout I hope. Thanks once again for the comments dude!

    WWE United Kingdom Brand ~ Episode 058 ~ All these things I Hate
    Swansea, Wales
    27/12/18




    Dusted by Astroid Boys begins to play as this latest edition of the UK Brand kicks off with a video package highlighting the previous show. This video package begins with Toni Storm handing Kay lee Ray her first loss in the UK Brand before it follows with Fabian Aichner demolishing Luke Menzies. After this portion of the video comes to an end, the focus turns to the King of the Ring tournament and how Buddy Murphy advanced to the semi finals having beaten Mark Andrews. With this this week's show opens from Swansea, Wales and after we see the electric crowd in attendance both Doug Williams and John Gooden would send us to the ring for our opening contest.

    Match One: The Coffey Brothers vs The Iron Lions ~ UK Tag Team Championships


    Kicking off the night would be tag team action as the champions the Coffey Brothers put their titles on the line against a veteran duo of Andrew Simmons and James Tighe aka The Iron Lions. This duo of veterans knowing that they had a big opportunity and wanting nothing more than to make a statement used every trick they had in the book throughout this contest to get an edge on the champions. While usually he liked to remain impartial Doug Williams acknowledged that he was rooting for the challengers having come up with them back in the day. Unfortunately for the challengers in the end the champs would be too much for them as Mark Coffey caught Simmons in mid air with a red forearm while Joe Coffey put down James Tighe with the Black Coffey clothesline.

    Shepherd: And the winners of the match and still champions The Coffey Brothers!


    The crowd cheers loudly as the announcement is made and with the help of his brother Joe Coffey makes it to his feet. After being handed their titles, both Mark Coffey and Joe stand tall in the ring after another successful defense.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Footage filmed from the end of last week's show is then played and it focuses on a dejected Mark Andrews returning to the back following his defeat at the hands of Buddy Murphy. Still feeling the effects of this loss, Mark as he limps towards the locker room begins to take note of what looks to be a ticket on the door. The back of the ticket clearly displays an anti fun police logo and Andrews is quick to screw it up before casting it aside. Unfortunately as he opens the door he is sprayed directly in the face with what appears to be pepper spray by 'Chief Deputy' Damian Dunne. While Andrews collapses to the floor Dunne begins to attack his knee whilst berating him for his continued violations of the No Fun Zone. Dragging Andrews towards the locker room door, it appears that Dunne prepared to crush his leg with the door only for officials and security to hit the scene to stop the assault before it went any further.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Following this the cameras would take us to the corridor of the building where there is a large commotion accompanied with a bevy of bodies as security and officials were on the scene. Shouting out at one another are four of the UK Brand's tag teams as Kyle Fletcher, Mark Davis, Zack Gibson, James Drake, Clement Petoit, Marcel Barthel, Ashton Smith and Rampage Brown all screaming at one another. This would be until Wade Barrett rushed onto the scene having heard the commotion. Demanding answers about what's going on, Wade listened in as the teams revealed that they all wanted the next shot at the Coffey Brothers. After listening intently Wade was quick to remind all the teams that they had previously all had their shot and come up short. Yet he is not against second chances, but rather than make a decision now Wade promises that he will make an announcement about the UK Tag Team Championships next week as he wants to weigh up his options.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Match Two: Rhea Ripley vs Gisele Shaw

    Having been rescheduled after the actions of Rhea Ripley last week, the pressure was on Gisele Shaw here as she took on Ripley in her UK Brand debut. The young woman from the Philippines looked impressive thanks to her athleticism in the early going. Yet soon experience and power would come into play as Rhea Ripley firmly took over having been frustrated by Shaw. It wouldn't take long soon after for Rhea to finish her with the Riptide.

    Shepherd: And the winner of the match Rhea Ripley!

    The crowd boos as the announcement is made but despite the match being over it is clear that Rhea is not done with Gisele Shaw. Punishing her with punches and stomps, Ripley's assault continued as she trapped Shaw in a cloverleaf submission. This would be until Tegan Nox rushed down to the ring, releasing the hold Rhea faced off with the champion as she reminded her of the no contact rule. From here the smug Ripley exited the ring while Tegan tended to Shaw.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Taking us away from ringside the cameras now direct us toward the general manager's office where Katarina Leigh is standing by along with Dakota Kai. Speaking openly about the house of couture situation, Dakota calls the issues they have been having something that no one can move on from until it is settled and Jinny's house is brought down. Katarina for her part nods her head as she acknowledges she understands where Dakota is coming from and is not impressed with the west side story like shenanigans as of late. With that Katarina follows by granting Kai a match tonight with Jinny in which the House of Couture as well as Dakota's allies will all be barred from ringside.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    After suffering a beating at the hands of Rhea Ripley once more
    Gisele Shaw finds herself in familiar surroundings as she sits in the trainers office. Standing by in the corner of the room is a concerned Tegan Nox. After hearing the doctor saw that Gisele will be fine, Nox sighs in relief before asking Shaw how she's feeling. Gisele comments that she's been through worse but at the same time understands part of this is paying her dues. Tegan listens in intently before commenting that what Rhea has been doing to her is too much, yet Shaw counters that this is a trial by fire for her. With that Shaw makes a shocking decision to challenge Tegan to a match next week in order to continue to see how she fares against the best. Despite being taken aback by this Tegan accepts.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Playing across the titantron is footage filmed from earlier on this evening as it shows
    Kay Lee Ray making her way to the building. Keeping her head down, Kay Lee Ray is very much keeping herself to herself until she finds herself surrounded by the Female Fight Factory and Chakara. As she stares down this House of Couture contingent Kay Lee Ray soon sees Jinny sitting down nearby applying some make up to herself. Forever smug Jinny despite being quite respectful to Kay Lee comes off very disingenuous as she states that she admires how Kay Lee wants to go it on her own. But as Jinny says there is only so long she can be on her own in this world and it's about time she makes the right friends. With that Jinny asks for her to join the House of Couture and even goes as far as to advise Kay Lee on considering the consequences should she refuse. Despite this threat looming Kay Lee Ray refuses to join the House of Couture. This would definitely have it's share of consequences as April Davids blasted Kay Lee Ray with a forearm to the back of the head knocking her to the ground. From here Laura Di Matteo and Killer Kelly along with Chakara would put the boots to her while Jinny watched on.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Match Three: Fabian Aichner vs BT Gunn


    The following contest of the night was a special challenge match as BT Gunn had been out for Aichner's head ever since he debuted and attacked Wolfgang. Notably unlike some of the others who went up against Aichner, BT Gunn showed little in the way of intimidation against Fabian. Yet despite his best efforts to take the fight to Aichner. It seemed that he could never truly get the better of the Italian. Continuing to live up to his moniker of the next level, Aichner again showed himself to be the perfect blend of speed and power and once more it'd be that vicious dropkick of his that would lead to the end as Gunn was shown to whiplash off the canvas on it landing. In fact before Aichner could do anymore damage to Gunn, the referee would call for the bell.

    Shepherd: And the winner of the match Fabian Aichner!


    The crowd reaction remains mixed until Fabian Aichner shoves the referee down to the canvas. From here he proceeds to mount BT Gunn and pummel him with punches and elbows reminiscent of what he did to Travis Banks. This is till the champion himself comes through the crowd and hits the ring. Aichner gets to his feet but Banks is able to double leg him and bring him down to the canvas. From here both men jostle for position while trading shots with one another until they are forced apart by security. The crowd meanwhile is rabid as Banks and Aichner continue to shout threats at one another.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Having now been granted her own interview show, it would be time for the first installment of a walk through the rose garden as
    Joanna Rose sat down across from Kenny Williams. Looking to ask the hard questions as she has done so through her time in the UK Brand, Joanna candidly speaks with Kenny about his past with Morgan Webster. A solemn Kenny Williams states that he and Morgan were friends, they had been for a long time. While at points there had been some competitive rivalry between the two of them, Kenny states he knew Morgan would have his back just as he would him. Which is why it confused him when Morgan threw it all away because of money. Speaking openly about the bounty put on him by Gideon Grey many months ago, Kenny calls it a trying time in his life as Gideon looked to end his career. Commenting that Morgan had gotten hurt, Kenny admits that perhaps he could have been there more for him. But at the same time he had a lot on his plate himself and rather than have Kenny's back, Morgan chose to put a knife in it. Stating that he hoped he could make Morgan see the light, Kenny admits he knows that's not possible now and he has to give up on saving his friend.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Still fired up following his confrontation with Aichner,
    Travis Banks is escorted into the parking lot by security while a livid Wade Barrett stands by. Despite Banks' attempts to justify his actions, Wade says that he told him to stay away from Aichner and it's under GM's orders that he is to be removed from the building. As a seething Banks is pulled outside, Wade is met by Katarina Leigh who asks him what is going on. Calling Banks' actions rash and stating that it's behavior like that which is why Katarina's job integrity was questioned, Wade states that he has sent him home. Katarina for her part doesn't seem impressed with this as when she asks about Aichner, Wade talks of him like the victim in this situation. Before this conversation can continue however Wade states that he has something he wants to talk to her about in regards to the women's championship match at UK Showcase 4.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Match Four: Jinny vs Dakota Kai

    With their respective cliques banned from ringside it would be one on one action as Jinny took on Dakota Kai. This was a hard hitting contest between the two with the viciousness and mean streak of Jinny firmly on display. Kai for her part was resilient as ever and even picked up a very close near fall following a coast to coast style dropkick. Towards the end of the match Dakota Kai looked to have things won when a distraction from Xia Brookside of all people allowed Jinny to put Kai down with the Touch of Couture for the victory.

    Shepherd: And the winner of the match Jinny!


    The crowd boos loudly as the announcement is made and Jinny has her arm raised in the ring. While Jinny celebrates her victory, we see at ringside a stoic Xia Brookside watching on.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Fading away from ringside, the cameras direct us to the locker room area where
    Josh Bodom is standing by. Talking openly about the mistakes he has made in his past, Josh states that being young, dumb and stupid he aligned himself with the wrong people and it turned him into something he wasn't. Stating this is a mistake he has learned from, Josh states that for a while it took people some time to get used to this being the real him but that one person had his back in Charlie Garrett. Stating that this poser calling himself Charlie Sterling is not the man he once knew, Josh continues by saying he now sees Charlie falling in the same trap he once did when it comes to aligning himself with the wrong people. Which is why he will do what no one was able to do for him and save Charlie Garrett before it's too late.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Returning backstage following her victory a smug
    Jinny snaps her fingers and her intern Chakara is quick to bring her a glass of chilled mineral water. After taking a sip and spitting it on the floor, Jinny dumps the rest over Chakara's head before scolding her about the temperature. While Chakara rushes off to get it right, Jinny turns to see "The Present" Bill Eaver standing by with Xia Brookside. Cracking a smile Jinny shakes hands with Eaver before the reason for this alliance is revealed. Claiming to have done all her can and having led Xia so far, Eaver introduces her to her new mentor and role model Jinny who he calls someone who has embraced the philosophy of today being the greatest day of her life. As Jinny smirks Xia takes a step forward while Eaver vanishes down the hallway. Chakara then returns on the scene as Jinny introduces her to her fellow intern.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Main Event: Kassius Ohno vs Pete Dunne ~ King of the Ring ~ Quarter Final

    Finally it was time for the main event of the evening and this would be a quarter final match in the king of the ring tournament as Pete Dunne battled Kassius Ohno. As one might expect from the two men involved in this contest, this was a hard hitting collision and a true battle of wills. Both men would have their moments throughout the contest which was packed full of near falls. The ending conclusion of this match saw both men exhausted and beaten down with Ohno looking to end things with a discus elbow but as he spun round he was met with an elbow from Dunne. This rocked Ohno and allowed Pete to follow with the Bitter End for the victory.

    Shepherd: and the winner of the match Pete Dunne!

    The crowd cheers in appreciation of the contest they have just witness. Slowly Pete Dunne pulls himself to his feet using the ropes for support before he gets his arm raised in victory. While Pete Dunne begins to do his signature pose Kassius Ohno began to get to his feet in the corner. Once he is to his feet Ohno would extend a hand in respect to the Bruiserweight while the crowd cheered. This would be until a dismissive Pete Dunne shook his head and stormed backstage as the show come to a close.

    Re: WWE United Kingdom Brand

    Been a while since I commented in here but I've still been reading and still enjoying as always. The highlight for me is the Banks/Aichner stuff, just awesome, old school booking. Fabian comes across as such a huge star here.

    The GM stuff I think I have an idea of where it's going, and I'm enjoying it. In the early weeks I felt there were maybe too many segments with them in and I was starting to burn out on it, but it's gotten better recently. While it is clearly one of your biggest stories, given it involves two non-wrestlers it could have a week off to give it time to breathe I think, especially with such a loaded roster.

    King of the Ring has been a lot of fun so far. Shame to see Ohno go out in the quarters but Dunne has to be one of the biggest favourites to take it, so I get it. Love that Buddy got through to the Semi, I think it's important if you have guests participating to have some of them progress well. Would love to see Keith Lee get to the Semis so far but genuinely no idea where you go with that. The stip of the title match is an interesting one too given you are going so hard on the Fabian/Banks angle.

    But yeah, still reading, still enjoying. Good fun as always.

    Cheers for the feedback Keef mate. Really appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. Banks/Aichner has been a joy to write for in truth. Especially with everyone but them wanting to keep them apart. I have some really interesting moves I'm going to be making with these two in the future as well. Can totally understand where you are coming from with the GM story. The show sort of took a shift following the last show case with a heavy amount of segments taking over as opposed to ring work. That was partly by design but also by mistake as I wanted to push the story but I may have gone a tad overboard in the early going. Not to give much away but I have a lot instore for both Katarina and Wade in the coming future. Glad you are enjoying the King of the Ring tournament so far man. Ohno going out was defo a shame but similar to the elimination of Harper. Despite my fandom for the guys, there was only so far they could go with what I've got planned. Murphy on the other hand has definitely progressed well and he's someone I've enjoyed writing for. What I like as well is that I have an interesting story in mind for his next match to tell. Cheers once more for the feedback Keef, really appreciate it dude!

    WWE United Kingdom Brand ~ Episode 059 ~ You want a Battle?
    Newport, Wales
    3/1/19




    Dusted by Astroid Boys begins to play as this latest edition of the UK Brand kicks off with a video package highlighting the previous show. This video package begins with the Coffey brothers retaining their tag team titles against the Iron Lions. Footage then turned to the vicious beat down Kay Lee Ray received at the hands of the House of Couture. Finally the video would then come to an end with clips of how Pete Dunne defeated Kassius Ohno to advance in the King of the Ring tournament. Once this video comes to an end this latest show opens up from Newport. After hyping up the show, both Doug Williams and John Gooden direct us to ringside where we see the entire UK Brand roster gathered around the ringside area.


    Standing in the ring along with Katarina Leigh is the UK Brand's management consultant Wade Barrett. The reaction to Wade from the audience is noticeably quite hostile as at points he is drowned out by boos. Despite this Wade has a big smirk on his face as he thanks everyone for coming out here tonight for his address, commenting that he has a bevy of things to discuss. Wade promises that he will do his upmost to keep it brief as he knows that everyone wants to get this show rolling and that he has other business to attend to throughout the night.

    While Katarina listens in as every time she goes to speak, she is intercepted by Wade. Wade states that the first port of call is the situation involving the UK Tag Team Championships. As the cameras focus on the Coffey brothers, Wade compliments the champions for their success in the brand. Praising their dominant run, Wade then also gives his respect and admiration to the division itself which despite having such a fearsome duo at the front, still has a bunch of hungry, talented pairings more than ready for a second crack at the gold.

    Which is why Wade and Katarina have elected to simply give everyone their shot at the titles. Because at the UK Showcase, Wade announces that the Coffey Brothers will defend their titles in a tag team turmoil match! The crowd in attendance cheers loudly at this announcement while we see shots of various tag teams at ringside who seem equally pleased with the verdict. Before Wade can continue his series of announcements however the United Kingdom Champion Travis Banks climbs into the ring and shockingly snatches a microphone from Katarina's hands.

    While Katarina looks on in shock, Travis then confronts Wade Barrett before he remarks that he is sick and tired of all the crap put in front of him by the general manager. Stating that week in and week out, Travis has demanded a shot at Fabian Aichner. Banks states that he is sick of waiting and sick of people holding him back which is why he is taking the initiative now. Pointing directly at a smug Aichner who is standing by in the crowd, Banks holds his title in the air before he lays it on the canvas and dares him to take it from him if he truly thinks he is the real UK Champion.

    Leaping the rail, Aichner rushes to the ring while an angered Wade Barrett demands that people step between them. Several superstars manage to catch Aichner before he can hit the ring but all this does is hold him in place for a suicide dive from Banks to a loud pop from the crowd. Aichner goes down and Banks begins to rain punches down onto him before he is pulled away by security. Climbing to his feet a livid Aichner begins swatting people away as he rushes for Banks. These two begin brawling through the group until a livid Wade Barrett also steps between them while the crowd continues chanting let them fight. With sheer rage in his voice, Barrett demands both men be taken backstage as this address comes to an end.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Match One: Tegan Nox vs Gisele Shaw

    The first match of the night would be non title action as Tegan Nox battled young prospect Gisele Shaw. Having laid down the challenge to the champion last week, Shaw was quick to shake her hand in respect as the match began. Surprisingly this contest would see Shaw land a lot of offense as she aggressively went after the champion, looking to prove herself. This even included her landing a basement dropkick to Tegan's knee which she has had documented issues with. Despite this the champion was able to battle back before she finally put her challenger away with the shining wizard.

    Shepherd: And the winner of the match Tegan Nox!

    The crowd in attendance cheers as the announcement is made and Tegan Nox gets to her feet in the ring. Despite having a slight limp following that dropkick, Nox celebrates her win before she helps Shaw to her feet. Tegan then offers her opponent a handshake which Shaw accepts. As she does so however Tegan catches sight of Rhea Ripley on the entrance ramp. With her attention turned, Tegan has her knee kicked out by Gisele Shaw. Nox drops to a knee and Shaw follows up with an axe kick across the back of the head as the stunned crowd begins to boo. Gisele then leaves the ring and heads up the ramp while a smug Ripley applauds her.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Cutting away from ringside, the cameras then direct us towards the locker room area where both Joe Coffey and Mark Coffey are standing by. Despite having the odds stacked against them at the UK Showcase 4, both Mark Coffey and Joe Coffey seem to relish this challenge. Stating that they have so far cleared out the division and beaten everyone put in front of them, The Coffey Brothers continue by saying that they will never back down from a challenge and while they know that the odds are against them in this match, they are more than ready for the challenge and will leave with their titles around their waist.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As she begins to direct us on our second walk through the rose garden, a proud Joanna Rose is joined by her guest for the evening Mark Andrews. With a noted limp from his attack last week at the hands of Damian Dunne, Andrews is candid as Joanna immediately begins to question Mark on what is going on with them two. Andrews for his part admits that when Dunne came to the UK Brand, Mark thought all of his no fun antics and the no fun zone remarks to be a joke. Acknowledging that Damian's in ring abilities were never in doubt, Andrews continues by saying that while Damian may come off as hokey. Mark states he now sees Damian for what he really is. Branding him as nothing more than an elitist who wants to oppress anyone who doesn't conform to his ideals. Andrews calls him nothing more than a wannabe tyrant who wants control and will resort to any tactics no matter how shameless to get that control. Closing this interview, Andrews states that he no longer sees Damian as a joke. Instead he sees Damian for what he is, a grown up bully who no one has stood up to before. Which is why Andrews next time will take the fight to him!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Match Two: Damian Dunne vs Local

    Not happy with what he saw from Mark Andrews interview Damian Dunne had a chance to take out some of his frustrations in the next contest of the night. Matched up with a local competitor, the chief deputy of the no fun zone dominated his young opponent from the opening bell. After a short contest Damian Dunne finished off his opponent with a single knee face buster.

    Shepherd: And the winner of the match Damian Dunne!

    The crowd boos loudly as the announcement is made and Damian Dunne rises to his feet. After getting his arm raised in the air, Dunne mockingly writes his opponent a ticket before he slaps it across his fallen foes' face.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Following the match, the cameras direct us towards the corridor of the arena where a confrontation is taking place between Morgan Webster and Kenny Williams. These former friends are very much trading barbs at one another as Morgan continues to remark that Kenny cast him aside while Williams instead brands Webster as a little man with a massive ego who always wants to be the star. As the argument reaches its peak, Kenny challenges Webster to a fight then and there but instead of accept Morgan instead breaks out into a smirk as Kenny is attacked from behind by Wild Boar. As Williams hits the ground both Webster and Boar begin to put the boots to him while Webster takes the time to tell Kenny that they will fight on Morgan's terms not his!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    From here we are taken to the general manager's office where Wade Barrett is in the middle of a meeting with a fired up Dakota Kai. Unhappy with what had transpired last week in her match with Jinny, Kai says she is sick of Jinny and her squad constantly causing her problems and costing her victories. Nodding his head, Wade remarks that he understands before he remarks that he and Katarina are set to address the House of Couture situation very soon. In the meantime, Wade states that he can't punish Jinny for last week as Xia Brookside when the match transpired was not technically a member of her team. But what he can do is give Dakota Kai a match with Xia Brookside tonight!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Match Three: Aussie Open, Ashton Smith and Rampage Brown vs Grizzled Young Vets, Clement Petoit and Marcel Barthel


    With the announcement of the tag team turmoil match, we'd get a preview of sorts with four of the teams set to feature in the bout. Having all been involved in a tense confrontation last week, it was no surprise that there was some tension between the teams as they were forced to work together here. This match very much was pure chaos but total fun for the audience as it led to a thrilling conclusion with every man being taken out with a big move. Near the end Ashton Smith had the bout won as he blasted Barthel with a superkick yet before he could make the pin, he'd be spun round and drilled with a DDT by James Drake who was in fact the legal man and was able to steal the pin.

    Shepherd: And the winners of the match James Drake, Zack Gibson, Marcel Barthel and Clement Petoit!

    The crowd boos as the announcement is made and James Drake gets to his feet in the ring. Drake is quickly embraced by Gibson before the two get their arms raised. Meanwhile at ringside Clement Petoit helps Barthel to his feet and despite their victory the two glare at the Grizzled Young Vet duo not impressed with their future opponents.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    After their awkward interaction earlier on Katarina Leigh walks through the corridors of the building before she finds a pissed off Travis Banks heading towards the exit. Shockingly Banks reveals that he spoke with Wade and he knows that he and Katarina have elected to suspend Banks until the UK Showcase. Shaking her head, Katarina reveals that she never spoke to Wade and that while yes she did keep Banks off a couple of weeks to recover from that last match, but she was not responsible for him continuously being sent home each week following his return. Promising Banks that he is not suspended, Katarina states that she will resolve this matter by the end of the night!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Clips caught from earlier on in the day are then shown as we see Josh Bodom arrive to the building. As Josh begins to make his way through the corridor he finds himself met by Bill Eaver. Despite Bodom's hostility towards his charges not too mention his questioning of Eaver's methods, Bill Eaver appears happy to see Josh. Bodom meanwhile demands to know what Eaver wants when to his surprise, Eaver starts to praise Josh. Calling Josh a talented young man with a world of potential, Eaver claims that he reminds him a lot of Sterling in that while he has a lot of potential he needs guidance to truly reach it. With that Eaver offers to mentor Bodom but Bodom rejects this offer before he walks off down the hall.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    After this the cameras show Wade Barrett beginning to make his way towards his office. Yet as he nears the office Wade finds himself met by Chris Brookes. Lacking his usual confidence and bravado, Brookes seems almost unsure of himself as he asks Wade for a moment of his time. As Wade listens in Brookes makes his pitch as he wants in the tag team turmoil match at the UK Showcase. On hearing Brookes out, Wade remarks that he likes Chris but Chris has been in a major slump lately, same time he is willing to give him the opportunity if Brookes can find himself a tag team partner!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Match Four: Dakota Kai vs Xia Brookside w/Chakara

    Having requested this bout earlier on in the evening, Dakota Kai had a chance to get her hands on Xia Brookside here. Looking for revenge after Xia cost her a victory last week, Kai very much punished Brookside in the early going. This would be until a distraction by Chakara allowed Brookside to catch her with a reverse DDT for a near fall. As the match progressed with Brookside in control, Xia began to get ahead of herself as she started taunting her fallen opponent. This proved a mistake as Kai rallied back and eventually picked up the win following the Kairopractor.

    Shepherd: And the winner of the match Dakota Kai!

    The crowd cheers as the announcement is made but as Kai gets to her feet she is attacked by Chakara. Chakara manages to get off a few punches until Kai fires back and blasts her with a kick to the jaw. Chakara falls out to the floor alongside Brookside while the cameras cut backstage. It is there we see a brawl taking place as the House of Couture are being laid to waste by the group of Toni Storm, Charlie Morgan, Kasey Owens, Millie McKenzie and Kay Lee Ray! Kai begins to rush backstage as she looks to join in the battle but as she arrives on the scene, she finds that security and officials have managed to break up the battle between the warring female factions.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Taking us away from the confrontation, the cameras then direct us towards the locker room where Pete Dunne is standing by. Before Dunne can speak to the cameras about his King of the Ring tournament progress, much to his annoyance he is joined by Trent Seven. Things are tense between the duo as Seven comes off insincere when he praises Dunne's efforts thus far in the King of the Ring. Trent then starts to talk about his match with Bate next week and how when he wins, he will be facing Pete in the semi finals. Yet before Seven can even finish making his point Dunne storms out of the locker room.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The cameras then roll to the general manager's office where Wade Barrett is standing by with Fabian Aichner. Yet before we can hear any of their conversation, they are interrupted by the arrival of Katarina Leigh. Katarina is visibly angered as she demands to talk to Wade, yet soon she directs her attention to the smug Fabian Aichner. Commenting that Wade is the only reason he has not been fired. Katarina then reveals that she has made a decision and that after talking with Travis Banks herself, opening up the show next week will be Travis Banks vs Fabian Aichner 2!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Main Event: Jordan Devlin vs Keith Lee ~ King of the Ring ~ Quarter Final


    Finally it was time for the main event of the evening and it would be a quarter final match between two beloved superstars as Jordan Devlin took on Keith Lee. While the crowd was fans of both men, it appeared that the audience soon rallied around Jordan who had to go up against the mammoth Keith Lee. The story of the contest very much would be that despite his heart and his valiant efforts, Devlin would take a beating thanks to the sheer power of Keith Lee. This huge power and explosiveness of Keith Lee very much cut off any attempt at offense in the early going from Jordan, including a moment when Keith caught Jordan from a slingshot cutter and planted him with a storm zero for a near fall. Continuing his domination, Keith Lee would blast Devlin with a pounce sending him falling to the floor. Yet as Keith stood on the apron, he took a costly moment to bask in his own glory and this allowed Jordan to hop up onto the apron before taking him down with a Spanish fly onto the floor. Despite taking this move, Keith was the first up to his feet as he returned Devlin to the ring. Jordan to his credit was able to mount some offense including a nasty headbutt which rocked Lee. As the tide began to change in the match, Devlin began to counter Keith before rocking him with a enzugiri kick to the side of the head. In a shocking moment Jordan then hoisted Keith up onto his shoulders before planting him down into the canvas with the Ireland's call to a pop from the crowd. Despite being exhausted Jordan then made a cover for the match winning pin fall.

    Shepherd: And the winner of the match Jordan Devlin!

    The crowd cheers loudly as the announcement is made and slowly Jordan Devlin can get to his feet in the ring. After getting his arm raised in the air, Jordan Devlin takes a moment to recollect himself in the corner while the referee tends to Keith Lee. Having sat up a disappointed Keith Lee would rise to his feet before him and Devlin stared down. After a few moments, Keith Lee graciously raised Jordan's arm in the air as the show came to a close.

    WWE United Kingdom Brand ~ Episode 060 ~ Don't Need You
    Bangor, Wales
    10/1/19




    Dusted by Astroid Boys begins to play as this latest edition of the UK Brand kicks off with a video package highlighting the previous show. This video package begins with highlights of Katarina and Wade's address which ended with a brawl between Travis Banks and Fabian Aichner. After this we'd be shown Gisele Shaw stabbing Tegan Nox in the back as she aligned herself with Rhea Ripley. The video would then culminate with Jordan Devlin advancing to the semi finals of the King of the Ring tournament with his victory over Keith Lee. With that the video came to an end and this week's show officially opened from Bangor, Wales. Doug Williams and John Gooden would then begin to hype up tonight's show before they'd send us to the ring for the opening bout.


    Match One: Travis Banks vs Fabian Aichner


    Kicking off the show would be arguably one of the more anticipated bouts in the UK Brand history as UK Champion Travis Banks got his rematch against Fabian Aichner. Though calling this a match very much would be an understatement as instead this was a war. A true battle of attrition between two men who could not stand one another. This was punctuated in the early going with Banks charging across the ring with a boot right to the jaw of Aichner. From here Banks took the fight to Aichner in the corner drilling him with elbows, punches, knees and kicks until Fabian was able to blast him with a heavy forearm strike. This allowed for Aichner to begin to mount some offense of his own as he battered Banks across the ring with heavy strikes before driving him back first into the turnbuckle. Aichner proceeded to work over Banks' midsection with several shoulder strikes until Banks countered an attempt with a knee directly to the top of the head. With Aichner dazed, Banks quickly connected with the slice of heaven kick sending Aichner falling out through the ropes and down to the floor. Fired up Travis Banks then hit the ropes before he ran off and went for a big dive through the ropes to the floor on Aichner. Yet as he does so, Banks notably caught his face on the guard rail while the crowd in attendance are on their feet. Slowly Travis Banks gets to his feet and he is fired up as he lets out a primal roar, yet as he does so the cameras pull away thanks to a bad cut being opened over his eye. Bleeding heavily, Banks continues to beat on Aichner until the cameras shift to the bottom of the ramp where Wade Barrett is ordering the referee to throw out the match.

    Shepherd: Ladies and Genetleman.. this match has been ruled a no contest!

    There are loud boos from the crowd in attendance who are disatisfied with this non finish to the match. Banks is also livid with the result as he tosses Aichner into the ring, yet as he goes to get up on the apron he is snatched back by security and officials. Aichner is able to escape and he leaves the ring before disappearing backstage while a livid Barrett demands for Banks to get treatment on that cut asap.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Much to the chagrin of the crowd in attendance, focus would then turn to footage filmed from earlier on in the week as we saw Chris Brookes begin his quest to find a tag team partner. His search would take him to a live event where Brookes would approach several superstars including Noam Dar, Jack Gallagher and even Katarina's associate Luke Menzies. In these three separate scenes we see how of the three, it is Luke Menzies who is the most respectful in refuting the offer as he states with the Barrett and Leigh situation at the moment, his hands are full. Dar and Gallagher on the other hand are a lot more disrespectful as they both cite the turmoil idea as a great one but rather than team with someone like Brookes, they agree to enter it together!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Having interupted the opening match of the night and ordered medical treatment for the UK Champion, a livid Wade Barrett returns to the general manager's office where he finds an equally angry Katarina Leigh standing by. This is a tense meeting as both members of management are clearly angry with one another as Katarina accuses Wade of a power play while Wade calls her overly emotional and says her recklessness has now put Banks at risk for showcase if his cut doesn't heal right. Despite the repeated back and forth bickering eventually cooler heads prevail as Katarina asks about Banks, Wade responds that he is about to go and check on him to see how he is doing and once he has done so he will let her know.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Match Two: Kenny Williams vs Damian Dunne

    It would then be time for singles action as Kenny Williams battled "Chief Deputy" Damian Dunne. Clearly from the opening going Damian Dunne was disgusted with Kenny Williams who he saw as in violation of the No Fun Zone. This would lead to a surprisingly heated, back and forth affair between the two, yet anytime Williams truly took over a bemused Dunne would dart out to the floor in an effort to recollect himself and berate the fans informing them that they were having too much fun. As the match would progress Williams looked to have the match won following a reverse hurricanrana, yet before he could make the cover Kenny was blindsided with a running forearm by Morgan Webster.

    Shepherd: And the winner of the match as a result of a disqualification Kenny Williams!


    The crowd boos as the announcement is made and Morgan Webster continues putting the boots to Kenny Williams. Joined by his associate Wild Boar, Morgan Webster continues to work over Kenny. Soon they are joined in this assualt by Damian Dunne when a chair wielding Mark Andrews runs down to the ring. Swinging the chair wildly Andrews is able to connect with a shot across the back of Wild Boar sending him falling out of the ring. Andrews continues to flail the chair around as Dunne and Webster bailed. From here Andrews checks on the downed Williams while the crowd voices their support for Williams and Andrews.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Now the cameras direct us to the locker room and we see Jordan Devlin sitting down by a monitor as he watches tonight's show. This is until his opponent for next week in the King of the Ring Semi Finals Buddy Murphy walks into the room. Things are tense between the two as the smug, arrogant Buddy is clearly looking down his nose at Devlin. Branding Jordan as a choker and someone who constantly falls flat on his face when it comes time to the big one. Murphy follows up by expressing his delight at having such an easy bout in the semi finals. As Murphy leaves, Jordan Devlin promises that he may have faltered in the past but that was then and this is now and come next week he will be in the King of the Ring finals!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A promo video then plays set to the tune of "Just like the old Days" by The Swayback. This video put together focuses very much on the history shared by both Tyler Bate and Trent Seven. Starting out the clips would focus on the mentorship as Trent Seven trained Tyler Bate and very much acted as a father figure to him throughout his life. During this we'd cut to clips of the two men talking presently. Tyler Bate, ever humble and respectful says that if it wasn't for Trent Seven he wouldn't be where he is today. Seven meanwhile would take full credit for everything, as he comments that he discovered Bates and got him where he is. Which makes Seven mad to hear no one give him the respect he deserves for what he has given to this business.

    Continuing on the package then slowly transitions to their time with WWE. Key moments in their relationship in the WWE would be shown from some of their battles with the Undisputed Era as well as Tyler's victory to become the UK Champion. In their moments to speak Bate spoke happily of this time as he stated what made his win all the more greater was knowing that he had Trent with him. Seven on the other hand is remarkably bitter as he talks about how he was fine and happy for Tyler having his moment, what he wasn't happy about was how quick everyone forgot about the part Trent Seven played in this.

    Taking a dark turn, the video then focuses on the first UK Showcase which culminated with Trent Seven attacking Tyler Bate with a chair. Solemnly Bate calls that night not just the worst in his career but also one of the worst in his life. Saying Seven's betrayal literally broke his heart, Bate finishes by saying that it took him a long time to get over what happened that night. Seven meanwhile calls his actions a move which was made for the survival of his career. Commenting that he was put out to pasture by everyone, he says that everyone now talks about Trent Seven. Turning to the future, both men then address their match in the King of the Ring tournament and the tournament as a whole. Bate calls participating in this tournament a dream come true before he calls it poetic that his next big moment will come at the expense of Trent Seven. Seven meanwhile closes out this promo by claiming that he built Tyler Bate and tonight to get to the semi finals of the King of the Ring, he will break him!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In a scene which may very much seem familiar to some, the cameras bring us to the hallway of the arena where Gisele Shaw is admiring herself in a mirror. This is until she is blindsided from behind and slammed face first into the mirror by Tegan Nox. As Shaw falls to the ground Nox begins to berate her for stabbing her in the back the previous week. Shaw slowly staggers to her feet and Nox blasts her with an elbow to the jaw. This backs up Gisele who tries to beg off from Tegan, yet Tegan is merciless as she continues to attack Shaw driving her into a wall before beating her down to the ground. Before Tegan can continue to dole out any damage, officials rush to the scene and pull her away.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Match Three: Wolfgang and BT Gunn vs Iron Lions

    Match three would then take place and it'd feature two teams confirmed by our commentators who will be taking part in the tag team turmoil match at the UK Showcase. These 4 veterans would put on entertaining back and forth battle in this bout with both Simmons and Tighe looking to impress in particular. Yet despite their impressive showing throughout, it would be Wolfgang and BT Gunn who got their hands raised as BT Gunn took out himself and Andrew Simmons with a suicide dive allowing Wolfgang to put down James Tighe with the howling.

    Shepherd: And the winners of the match Wolfgang and BT Gunn!

    The crowd cheers as the announcement is made and Wolfgang gets to his feet in the ring. Soon Wolfgang is joined by BT Gunn and the two get their arms raised in the air to a pop from the crowd in attendance.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Directing us backstage, the cameras then take us towards the women's locker room where Kay Lee Ray is in the middle of stretching. This is until Toni Storm walks into the room. Toni approaches Kay Lee and looks to show her some respect as she thanks her for her help last week. However before she can continue, Kay Lee Ray is quick to brush her off as she informs her not to get used to that support as it was merely a one off. As she barges past Toni, Kay Lee Ray informs her that she's got a match later on tonight with Jinny and she doesn't want any help.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    After this the cameras take us to the general manager's office where Katarina Leigh is standing by with Jinny. The smug Fashionista appears to be in a bad mood as she listens to the GM inform her of her upcoming bout with Kay Lee Ray. Jinny doesn't seem impressed with this announcement as she calls her opponent trash. Yet her mood only becomes worse as Katarina then follows by stating that there will not be any interference or individuals permitted to be at ringside. Before Jinny can protest this, Katarina follows by stating that she has not been impressed with the antics of the House of Couture and she will be doing something about this next week!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Before we head back to ringside for the next match, focus turns to Chris Brookes and his continual search to find a tag team partner. Yet even before he can speak several wrestlers just simply walk away from him, this is until Chris Brookes finds himself met by Bill Eaver. Eaver for his part is jubilant as ever and he seems pleased especially to see Chris Brookes. Admitting he is aware of Brookes' search, Eaver asks him if he knows why he has been unsuccessful. Brookes is unsure as Eaver with regret informs Chris that he is perceived as nothing more than a loser. Which is why sadly no one is going to want to team with him, Brookes looks to protest this but Eaver responds that it isn't a bad thing. Instead he calls this a great day for Chris Brookes, as today is the day he can begin to change that reputation and be the best that he can be!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Match Four: Jinny vs Kay Lee Ray

    Women's action would be the next contest of the night as rivals Kay Lee Ray and Jinny clashed. With notable bad blood between them, this was a vicious contest as both women had moments where they elected to make one another suffer rather than take the win. Near the match's conclusion this was especially true for the at times sadistic Jinny who delighted in bending Kay Lee Ray back first against the ring post. Yet soon Jinny's want to punish Kay Lee Ray for being in her words beneath her would backfire as Kay Lee Ray was able to counter a touch of couture attempt and counter with a cradle for an out of nowhere victory.

    Shepherd: And the winner of the match Kay Lee Ray!


    The crowd pops as the announcement is made and Kay Lee Ray rolls out to the floor. While Kay Lee Ray staggers back against the guard rail and looks to gather herself, in the ring a stunned Jinny begins to argue with the referee accusing him of a fast count.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As the cameras take us away from ringside, we are then shown our third installment of a walk through the rose garden as Joanna Rose is joined by Josh Bodom. This is a candid interview with Rose at first addressing the changes Bodom has made as a person since he broke away from Mark Haskins. Admitting he was young and was led astray Bodom calls that time one of the worst mistakes he'd made in his life. However he also called it a blessing as he has learned from those mistakes and knows where he went wrong in hindsight. the topic then turns towards Charlie Sterling and his relationship with Bill Eaver. Bodom is quick to reflect on his history with Charlie Garrett as he neglects to call Charlie by this moniker he has taken up. Calling Charlie a close friend who is making similar mistake that he did, which is why Bodom is trying to help him before he falls any further into the clutches of the parasitic Eaver. Closing out this interview, Bodom shockingly challenges Charlie to a match at the UK Showcase.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Following through on his promise earlier on in the night, Wade Barrett is then shown walking into the trainer's office where Travis Banks is being given stitches by a medic. Despite his discomfort Banks pushes the medic to the side as he stands up and squares up to Barrett. Looking to calm things down before they escalate, Wade immediately apologises to Banks for his actions as of late. Admitting that he has been a thorn in his side Wade acknowledges that this was only him wanting to protect his investment in the main event of the UK Showcase. Commenting that he is still new to this, Wade reveals he has only come here to check to see if Banks is OK and to see if they can perhaps start anew. While Banks remains dubious, Wade promises that from this point onwards Travis will see that Wade only has what's best for this brand as his sole intention.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Main Event: Tyler Bate vs Trent Seven ~ King of the Ring ~ Quarter Final

    Finally it was time for the main event of the night as former friends turned foe would collide as Tyler Bate took on Trent Seven. Similar to their other contests both men would look to tear into one another immediately. Taking control in the early going Bate would punish Seven until a well timed cheap shot by Seven allowed Trent back into the fray. The crowd unsurprisingly were solidly behind the ever popular Tyler Bate and would not stop voicing their support for Bate. As the match would continue it appeared that Trent Seven's best moments came after he caught Bate with a cheap shot. Midway through the contest, Pete Dunne was shown standing at the top of the stage watching the action. While Tyler Bate paid no attention to the arrival of Dunne, his appearance played apart in Seven's defeat as a desperate Trent began waving and calling for Pete to help him. This distraction allowed Bate to blast Seven with a rolling kick which put Seven down and allowed Bate to follow up with the Tyler Driver for the victory.

    Shepherd: And the winner of the match Tyler Bate!


    The crowd in attendance cheers loudly as the announcement is made and Tyler Bate gets to his feet in the ring. As Tyler Bate begins to celebrate his victory he soon catches sight with an unimpressed Pete Dunne on the stage. These two men then begin to stare off with one another knowing they will be doing battle in the semi finals of the King of the Ring tournament. With that this latest edition of the UK Brand comes to an end.

    Re: WWE United Kingdom Brand

    King of the Ring Semi Finals announced!

    With the Quarter Finals now completed, the semi finals of the King of the Ring tournament have been announced. The matches are as followed..

    Jordan Devlin vs Buddy Murphy

    "Since the king of the ring tournament's beginning in the UK Brand, two men to have kept an eye on have been Jordan Devlin and Buddy Murphy respectively. Growing steadily popular by the day, Jordan Devlin's impressive performances in the tournament have been capped off by his tremendous come from behind victory over Keith Lee. Yet despite this questions have still been raised about Devlin, notably by his upcoming opponent cruiserweight champion Buddy Murphy. The brash, powerful champion has commented on Devlin's inability to pull off the big one so to speak which has definitely ramped things up ahead of their coming match. Can Jordan Devlin prove Buddy wrong? or will the cruiserweight champion be one step closer to returning to 205 live as the 2019 King of the Ring?"

    Pete Dunne vs Tyler Bate
    "A match which very much is story of the UK Brand as a whole. Tyler Bate and Pete Dunne very much got the ground rolling for this brand's inception thanks to their thrilling series of matches for the UK Championship in the past. Since that time and the beginning of the UK Brand, the duo have only faced off in singles competition once which was at the first UK Showcase and saw Pete Dunne victorious after the stunning betrayal of Trent Seven towards Bate. Since that time Bate has been at war with Trent and earned his way to this spot in the king of the ring with a victory over Seven, Dunne meanwhile has been possibly as good as he has ever been since the stunning loss of his UK Championship at the hands of Travis Banks. With all this history behind them, who will make it to the king of the ring finals?"

    WWE United Kingdom Brand ~ Episode 061 ~ Waking the Demon
    EBBW, Wales
    17/1/19



    Dusted by Astroid Boys begins to play as this latest edition of the UK Brand kicks off with a video package highlighting the previous show. This starts out with a video package detailing the controversial opening match between Travis Banks and Fabian Aichner before moving on to the main event of the night between long time rivals Tyler Bate and Trent Seven. This would of course culminate with Tyler Bate winning and advancing to the semi finals of the King of the Ring tournament. Once the video comes to an end this week's show officially begins with both Doug Williams and John Gooden hyping up tonight's show. Following this they direct us towards the ring where the champion is standing by.

    Standing in the ring with a microphone in hand is the UK Champion Travis Banks. Still sporting a few stitches over his right eyebrow following his battle with Fabian Aichner last week, Banks cuts a serious figure as he begins to update the fans on the status of his injury. Admitting that at first it looked a lot worse than what it truly was and that his cut is healing and he is cleared to compete. Banks receives some respectful applause from the crowd with this announcement before he then makes it clear that despite the non finish, he is not finished with Fabian Aichner.

    Acknowledging that with the King of the Ring tournament is near completion and he will be the fighting champion he has striven to be and take on the winner of the tournament at the UK Showcase 4. Commenting that he is willing to play ball, Travis Banks follows by saying while he cannot wait to put his title on the line against the winner of such a prestigious tournament. He also knows deep down that this isn't over with Fabian Aichner and he cannot wait to finally settle things once and for all with the so called next level of the UK Brand.



    Before Banks can continue however he is suprisingly interupted by Chris Brookes. Banks definitely appears to be iritated by this interuption as Brookes hits the ring and grabs himself a microphone. Joining Banks in the ring, Chris Brookes totally ignores Travis' warning that for whatever he is out here for, now is not the time to do it. Yet Brookes is totally indignant as he comments that now is exactly the right time for him to be out here to accomplish what he wishes to accomplish. Stating that he is here right now to prove himself and show the world he isn't a loser, Brookes states there is no one better to prove himself against than Travis Banks.

    Banks still doesn't seem impressed as he counters that while he respects anyone trying to prove themselves, he is warning Chris Brookes that tonight is not the night to pick a fight with him. Not after what happened last week with him and Fabian Aichner. Again despite the warning, Chris Brookes refuses to acknowledge these warnings as he shockingly slaps Travis Banks across the face. Screaming at Banks, Brookes comments that he will no longer stand in the shadows and allow himself to be cast aside. Yet this backfires as Banks responds with a headbutt knocking Brookes to the ground. Standing over the dazed Brookes, Banks tells him challenge accepted!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Match One: Travis Banks vs Chris Brookes

    With the challenge thrown out there, it would be time for Chris Brookes to prove himself here up against Travis Banks. Known to be fiery and at times overly emotional, it appeared that Banks' temper began to work against him in the early going as Brookes played on this frustration to constantly counter Banks. Seeking to prove himself it would appear that Brookes really was showing signs of his old self deep down, unfortunately for him one part of his old self would also reemerge and that would be his arrogance. This arrogance is what would lead to Banks quickly and effectively taking Chris down by rocking him with an up kick from his back before catching Brookes on the way down in a koji clutch for the submission victory.

    Shepherd: And the winner of the match Travis Banks!

    The crowd cheers as the announcement is made and it has to be said, Travis Banks takes a few extra seconds to release the hold. Once he is finished, Banks climbs to his feet and gets his arm raised by the referee.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    It would then be time for our latest installment of the walk through the rose garden as today Joanna Rose was joined by none other than "The Present" Bill Eaver. Unlike the other editions of this interview segment it appears in the early goings that Bill Eaver is not going to be as candid as the previous subjects. This is shown by his tactile answers to dodge certain subjects such as how some have percieved him as nothing more than a manipulator. His over the top friendly facade in fact could slowly begin to be noticed as slipping as he finally remarked that sometimes in this world extreme methods and out of the box thinking can be misinterpreted and misunderstood and that all he truly wants to accomplish to help further the careers of those who needed some guidance. Changing topic to the goings on with Josh Bodom, Eaver expressed his disappointment that Bodom while needing guidance could not accept the fact that he required help. Which in turn means he cannot be helped, closing out this interview Eaver makes a rather haunting proclamation as he remarks that Bodom will learn very soon to be careful what he wishes for.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Focus then turns to the corridor of the building where Kenny Williams and Mark Andrews are standing by. These two close friends thank one another for their support especially last week before they look to the future. It is here we learn from Mark Andrews that he has a match with Damian Dunne at the UK Showcase and he intends to put a stop to Dunne and his crap once and for all. When talk turns to Kenny and what's going on with Morgan and Boar, he's still not entirely sure what to do but he admits he has a meeting with Wade Barrett later on this evening in the hopes he can end things once and for all.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Match Two: Jack Gallagher and Noam Dar vs Locals

    Having entered themselves as a team in the tag team turmoil match, the following contest would give the duo of Jack Gallagher and Noam Dar a chance to show just what they could do as a tag team. Despite having not teamed together before and a stark contrast in their personalities, it would seem in this contest against two local talents that both men were very much on the same page. After a short bout, Gallagher would be the one to pick up the victory as he knocked out one of the locals with a headbutt before making the pin.

    Shepherd: And the winners of the match Noam Dar and Jack Gallagher!

    The crowd boo as the announcement is made and Jack Gallagher climbs to his feet in the ring, Jack is soon joined by Noam Dar and the two men would shake hands while standing tall in victory.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Returning backstage the cameras quickly take us to a situation in the parking lot of the building as we see Kay Lee Ray taking a beating in the parking lot at the hands of the House of Couture. Under the supervision of Jinny who is barking orders at her associates to hurt Kay Lee Ray, it appears that the House of Couture don't just want to beat her down but instead they want to break her as April Davids prepares to slam a car door on her arm. Yet before this can happen Toni Storm, Dakota Kai, Millie McKenzie, Kasey Owens and Charlie Morgan all rush onto the scene running off the House of Couture.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    A pretaped interview is then played and it focuses on John Gooden sitting down with Fabian Aichner. Calling this one of the most anticipated interviews he has conducted. John Gooden looks to catch work with Aichner in regards to his actions since joining the UK Brand. Aichner responds by calling himself an outlier. Stating that he was sick and tired of seeing everyone being just so happy to be here and going about by the rules, he stated that in only a few months he has become the UK Brand's most talked about talent by doing what works for him and him alone. Moving on, Gooden then asks Aichner about Banks to which Fabian responds by stating Travis Banks is still being protected from him and that by right he should be the UK Champion right now. Before Gooden can ask another question, Aicher cuts the interview short with a looming remark that Banks and his title are not safe from him nor is anyone else who gets in the way of what he wants!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Ahead of her upcoming contest with Tegan Nox, a panicked Gisele Shaw would seek out Rhea Ripley and on seeing her in the locker room she'd rush in to speak with her. Asking Rhea if she heard about her attack last week, Shaw seems dismayed as Ripley admits she saw it. Stating that Tegan has lost it and perhaps they went too far, Shaw is panicking as she says that she needs to know Rhea has her back in this match. Yet to her shock and horror, Ripley stoically shakes her head before walking out of the locker room leaving her on her own.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Match Three: Tegan Nox vs Gisele Shaw

    A rematch from a couple of weeks ago albeit now under a totally different setting. No longer with mutual respect between the two of them, this bout was a straight up dog fight between Tegan Nox and Gisele Shaw. Over the course of the battle it must be said that Shaw began to look like a woman who had regretted her past decisions and choices in regards to Nox. Midway through the bout we'd see Rhea Ripley surprisingly walk down towards the ring possibly in an effort to distract Nox. Yet this inevitably back fired as Nox sent Gisele Shaw careening into Ripley knocking her off of the apron and to the floor. From here Nox would finish things off with a shining wizard on Shaw.

    Shepherd:
    And the winner of the match Tegan Nox!


    The crowd in attendance cheers as the announcement is made and Tegan Nox climbs to her feet. Yet as Nox gets her arm raised, she catches sight of a livid Rhea Ripley climbing into the ring. The champion and her opponent at the UK Showcase go nose to nose. Officials quickly rush to the scene hoping to split the two up yet as they get each woman to a corner, both are able to free themselves before they meet in the center and begin trading punches. The crowd in attendance is on their feet cheering on the battle as Ripley and Nox go back and forth, this is until more security and officials are able to part them again before they are able to remove both women from the ring to jeers.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Cutting away from ringside, we are directed towards the general manager's office where we see a livid Wade Barrett and Katarina Leigh standing by. Neither are happy that Rhea Ripley and Tegan Nox violated the terms of the contract and swear that there will be some repercussions to their actions. Before they can continue however Kay Lee Ray along with Toni Storm walk into the office. After informing Wade about the assault earlier on, Kay Lee Ray asks if a decision has finally been made. In a block buster announcement Katarina informs the women that at the UK Showcase we will have a 12 woman elimination tag team match between the House of Couture and the team of Kay Lee Ray, Toni Storm, Charlie Morgan, Kasey Owens, Dakota Kai and Millie McKenzie with the stipulation added that should the House of Couture lose, they will be forced to disband!

    "Breezeango and The Ascension will now be taking part in the UK Tag Team Championship Tag Team Turmoil match at the UK Showcase 4"

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Main Event: Jordan Devlin vs Buddy Murphy ~ King of the Ring ~ Semi Finals


    Finally it was time for the main event of the event of the night and it would see Jordan Devlin battle Cruiserweight champion Buddy Murphy in the semi finals of the king of the ring tournament. True to form this was a fast paced, athletic contest with both men performing some spectacular dives throughout. Very much a match akin to what you'd expect from a cruiserweight title contest, both men put on a fantastic show in what very much was the match of the tournament. Yet the match wore on, it seemed that the prophecy by Buddy Murphy about Jordan Devlin and big matches was coming true. This was down to every time Devlin began to get ahead Murphy was able to cut him down thanks to his power advantage. Towards the end of the bout, Murphy looked to put Devlin down with the Murphy's Law but Devlin was able to fight his way out of it. This would lead to a comeback where a fired up Devlin, was able to pick up one of his biggest wins in the UK Brand as of yet following an Ireland's Call on the Cruiserweight Champion.

    Shepherd: And the winner of the match Jordan Devlin!


    The crowd in attendance cheers loudly as the announcement is made! slowly climbing to his feet in the ring is a victorious Devlin who gets his arm raised in the air to a massive pop from the crowd. Elated Devlin stands atop the turnbuckle now as a finalist in the king of the ring tournament while the show comes to a close.

    Re: WWE United Kingdom Brand

    WWE United Kingdom Brand ~ Episode 062 ~ The Last Fight
    Newport, Wales
    24/1/19


    Dusted by Astroid Boys begins to play as this latest edition of the UK Brand kicks off with a video package highlighting the previous show. Starting off this video package would be the confrontation between Travis Banks and Chris Brookes which would lead to their later bout with Banks coming out on top. From here we'd see the brawl between Rhea Ripley and Tegan Nox before the video would close with Jordan Devlin advancing to the King of the Ring finals with his win over Buddy Murphy. The show would then open from Newport, Wales and we'd see a lively crowd in attendance as Doug Williams and John Gooden hype up the show in front of them before they send us backstage to the GM's office.

    With the show having began our opening segment takes place inside the office of our general manager Katarina Leigh. Joining her of course is Management Consultant Wade Barrett. While the tension between the two has seemed to have eased off a tad, neither seem to be in the best of mood as we see a bevy of security in the room along with Tegan Nox and Rhea Ripley. Both Barrett and Leigh scold the duo for violating the terms of their no contact clause in the contract they signed ahead of their match at the UK Showcase. Stating that they've had enough problems with champions putting themselves at risk lately, Wade admits that this entire week him and Katarina have gone back and forth on suspending both of them and cancelling the UK Showcase match.

    Neither Rhea or Tegan look happy about this while the live crowd in attendance can be heard voicing their disapproval. Yet soon after issuing this threat, Wade remarks that he has not come here to the UK Brand to take from the fans who want to see this match. In agreement with Wade, Katarina states all they want is for the match to take place when it is scheduled and for these two to not violate the conditions of the no contact agreement they both signed for. With that Katarina announces they are fining both of them but the match will go on as scheduled for the UK Showcase 4. Katarina then stated that for now, they were sending both women home for the night yet before they could leave the office, Wade Barrett would speak up. In a surprising announcement Wade would decree that in an effort to contain these two at the UK Showcase, he has decreed that they will have a special guest referee and that referee will be Katarina Leigh!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Before we can get to our first match up of the night, the cameras direct us towards the entrance of the building. Here we see Josh Bodom making his arrival to the building, as he walks up the stairs however towards the front doors he sees standing right at the top of the stares looking down at him is Bill Eaver. Eaver is unnervingly joyous as he looks down at Bodom who calls for him to move out of the way, yet despite Bodom's calls Eaver doesn't move. What happens next is shocking as Bodom is hit across the back of the knee with a baton by Charlie Sterling. Bodom falls to a knee as he screams out in agony, while Sterling wastes no time in hitting him across the side of the face with the baton. Bodom looks to be out as Eaver stands over him on the stairs and issues out the proclamation that things could have been different before he uses his foot to push Bodom by his side sending him tumbling down the flight of stairs to the ground.

    {Booker's Note: OK so this is a definite retcon as originally the plan was for Charlie Sterling vs Josh Bodom at the UK Showcase with the stipulation that should Bodom lose he'd join up with Sterling and Eaver. Yet as we've learned in the past week, Bodom's not exactly what you'd call a great guy. While 9 times out of 10 I don't let the real world affect my booking, the news very much put me off Josh and with that mentality. I just don't want to use someone I'm not a fan of in this project. So while this may shake up some of my longer term story telling, at the same time it will be a fun test of my creativity and don't worry I've already got something else in mind for Showcase}

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Match One: Damian Dunne and Morgan Webster w/Wild Boar vs Kenny Williams and Mark Andrews


    The opening bout of the night would be tag team action as 'Chief Deputy' Damian Dunne united with Morgan Webster against Kenny Williams and Mark Andrews. Despite their lack of familiarity both Dunne and Webster worked together well and with Boar in their corner, they were able to take charge of the contest thanks to the numbers game. As the match waged on Kenny and Mark managed to launch a comeback before Williams took to the skies and wiped out everyone bar Boar with a plancha. From here Williams sent Webster into the ring before he looked to follow up only to be tripped by Boar. This allowed Webster to quickly catch Kenny Williams in the strangler and drag him to the canvas for the submission victory.

    Shepherd: And the winners of the match Morgan Webster and Damian Dunne!

    The crowd in attendance boos loudly as the announcement is made. Not satisfied with his victory, Morgan Webster keeps hold of the choke hold while Wild Boar lays out the referee with a clothesline. Morgan then scales the turnbuckle while Wild Boar holds Williams in a back breaker position. Looking to save his friend Mark Andrews tries to enter the ring but he is pulled under the bottom rope by Damian Dunne who then hits him with a single knee face buster. Webster meanwhile would leap off and connect with an elbow drop onto Williams putting him down on the canvas as the crowd boos. With that Webster, Boar and Dunne would all stand tall in the ring to jeers from the crowd.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Returning backstage the cameras direct us towards the women's locker room where both Kay Lee Ray and Toni Storm are present. Despite the fact that these two women are set to team with one another at the UK Showcase 4, it is clear that neither woman are fans of one another. In fact it is said as much by Kay Lee Ray that she wants nothing more than a chance to have another shot at Toni Storm. Yet for now this is a case of the enemy of my enemy is my friend, in agreement Toni says that Kay Lee can have her rematch anytime she wants once they've handled the House of Couture!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Next would be time for the latest installment of a walk through the rose garden as Joanna Rose found herself joined by Jordan Devlin for this week's episode. This exclusive interview would cover a variety of subjects starting with his change of heart since the second UK Showcase. Admitting that he'd let his ego consume him and drive him mad, Jordan states that he did and said many questionable things in an effort to get noticed. Yet after his match with his mentor Finn Balor, Jordan realised he was doing things the wrong way and since then he has made an effort to change with the help of the UK fans who have slowly embraced him on realising he was genuine. As this interview would continue, Jordan would acknowledge that being called a choker by Murphy hurt. As he deep down was aware that there had been moments when he had failed to perform in big matches, which is why he was as determined as he'd ever been to make things right last week. Now talk would turn to the finals and Joanna would ask Jordan who he'd prefer to face. Calling a match with Pete Dunne one he has wanted for years but never been able to get, Jordan admits that part of him wants that. At the same time however Jordan admits that he is frustrated that he has yet to defeat Tyler Bate and would like to prove to everyone once and for all, that he is not the same Jordan Devlin who'd bottle it at the big one and become the WWE's King of the North!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Match Two: Tag Team Battle Royal

    The following contest would be a chaotic one as we saw an 11 team over the top rope battle royal. These teams would all of course be competing in the tag team turmoil match at the UK Showcase and it'd be confirmed here that the winning team would be the last entrant in said match. In a surprising scene all of the challenger teams would direct their attention to the champions and beat down the Coffey Brothers before tossing the champs out of the ring for the first elimination. Soon after we'd see Ashton Smith and Rampage Brown eliminated thanks to the efforts of the Iron Lions. Looking to impress, the Iron Lions would then also work together to eliminate Jack Gallagher and Noam Dar. Now we'd be down to 8 teams and the next to go would be the Ascension when Zack Gibson eliminated Viktor. Thanks to the aid of James Drake, Gibson would also be responsible for the elimination of Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch as he flipped Burch out of the ring. This would leave us down to Aussie Open, Petoit/Barthel, Grizzled Young Vets, Iron Lions, Wolfgang/Gunn and Breezeango. Continuing their impressive run as of late Aussie Open would begin to clean house as Mark Davis would shockingly eliminate both the Grizzled Young Vets as well as Wolfgang and BT Gunn. Soon after The Iron Lions would manage to eliminate Breezango all the while we'd see camera cuts of Barthel and Petoit who had managed to duck out of the ring and remain concealed at ringside. After a minute or two of action, Aussie Open eliminated the Iron Lions only to be attacked from behind by Petoit and Barthel who stole the victory by tossing out Aussie Open.

    Shepherd: And the winners of the match Marcel Barthel and Clement Petoit!

    The crowd boos as the announcement is made and Clement Petoit and Marcel Barthel aka The Foreign Legion stand tall in the ring. On the outside of the ring a visibly angered Aussie Open can't help but express their frustration as they now know that Petoit and Barthel will be the last team entered in the tag team turmoil.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    As he prepares for his match in the main event, Pete Dunne is in the middle of shadow boxing when the locker room door opens and Trent Seven walks into the room. With a broad smile on his face, Trent Seven once again looks to appease and reason with Pete Dunne. Calling his presence in his match the other week a sign that Pete is beginning to see things his way, Seven offers to help Dunne tonight against Tyler Bate. Glaring at Seven, Pete Dunne stares him down as he states that he doesn't want or need Trent's help. He has beaten Bate before on his own and he will do so again tonight. Before he leaves the room, Dunne makes it clear that if Trent shows his face in his match. It will be the last thing he does.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    After making his arrival to the building, a fired up Chris Brookes makes a beeline for one of the locker rooms. Barging into the room Brookes comes face to face with Bill Eaver. Brookes is fired up as he confronts Eaver and states that he knows Eaver played him. Eaver attempts to dismiss Brookes by highlighting how everyone was talking about him after his match with Banks, yet Brookes refuses to hear it as he states that he sees Eaver for what he really is and that is a two bit con man. With that Brookes walks away while warning him that they aren't done.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Main Event: Pete Dunne vs Tyler Bate ~ King of the Ring ~ Semi Final


    Finally it was time for the main event of the evening and one of the biggest matches in the UK Brand's history. This was because two of it's biggest stars would revisit their rivalry to stake their claim to the King of the Ring finals. These two former UK Champions and former partners would have a fantastic battle filled with tremendous counter wrestling as they were extremely familiar with one another at this stage. Throughout the bout, it was surprising how many fans in attendance were on Dunne's side as the bruiserweight would look to punish Bate with his joint manipulative methods. With the match reaching it's 17 minute mark, the cameras would take note of Trent Seven in the crowd watching on. His appearance would distract Tyler Bate at one stage and allow Dunne to lay out Bate with a forearm smash for a near fall. Yet it was clear that Seven's presence was equally disruptive to Dunne because as he got closer to the ring and more supportive in his cheers for Dunne, Pete would get thrown off and it would allow Bate to get back into the match after he connected with a rolling kick. Taking over the bout, Bate would catch a close near fall on Dunne following a killer punch to the jaw but as he motioned for the Tyler Driver he'd be distracted by Trent Seven who'd now climbed up onto the ring apron. This allowed Pete Dunne to spin out and land a boot to Bate's jaw, with Tyler rocked Pete then set him up for the Bitter End but now he'd catch sight of Seven and throw Bate off. Screaming at Seven to go, a livid Dunne completely took his eye off the ball and this allowed Tyler to send him crashing into Seven with both men butting heads before Bate capitalised with a Tyler Driver for the victory.

    Shepherd: And the winner of the match Tyler Bate!


    The crowd explodes into cheers as the announcement is made and Tyler Bate climbs to his feet in the ring. While Tyler begins to celebrate his win, he is soon joined in the ring by Jordan Devlin. These two King of the Ring finalists face off before they shake hands ahead of their finals match next week. Meanwhile at ringisde a livid Pete Dunne pulls himself to his feet while he sees an anxious Trent Seven backing his way up the ramp.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Before the show comes to a close, the cameras return us to the general manager's office where we have a meeting between Katarina Leigh and Wade Barrett. The general manager is still angry over Wade springing the announcement of her part in the women's title match, yet Wade remains insistent that he did it for the best of the brand and for the match. From here he directs the attention towards the finals of the King of the Ring match. In a surprising announcement Wade would reveal that the tournament match will take place at the opening of next week's show and that the winner will join Travis Banks in the closing of the show for a contract signing for the 4th UK Showcase!

    Re: WWE United Kingdom Brand

    King of the Ring finals set!

    After months of build up and matches, the finals of the King of the Ring are now set. What started at a field of 24 superstars has now slowly been whittled down to 2.

    Jordan Devlin vs Tyler Bate
    "Two of the most popular superstars in the UK Brand will do battle on this coming show to crown the King of the Ring. In one corner you have a man with a great track record of tournaments as part of the UK Brand in Tyler Bate, the former UK Champion who wants nothing more than to reclaim his title. While in the other corner you have the redemptive tale of Jordan Devlin, at one point the bad boy of the UK Brand who has steadily won over the fans thanks to his impressive run of performances and humbler attitude. Of course these two do have history as in their careers we know that Jordan Devlin has not once been able to defeat Tyler Bate. Yet as he has said, that was then and he is a different person now. Can Jordan finally defeat Tyler Bate to be crowned the King of the North? or will Tyler Bate defeat him once again and be the Big Strong Boy with the crown?"
