2. Disappointing Inconsistency
Last week: "We were NXT Tag Team Champions! That was pretty cool. Now, we wanna be NXT UK Tag Team Champions, so bring on the competition!"
This week: "F*ck it. Singles match."
A minor Down, but a Down nonetheless, WWE made a weird move in booking Tyler Bate to face Wolfgang one-on-one after his and Trent Seven's big tag team rah-rah speech. The match was cracking (more on that later), and this brand does suffer from a lack of established duos, but the company knew that already... so why take this approach?
If we're to criticise the main roster for its inconsistencies, then it's only fair that we do the same for the company's developmental brands. This was a rare slip on an otherwise well-booked hour of wrestling television. Let's hope it was a one-off, and things like this don't eventually become the norm, because NXT UK is off to an extremely promising start otherwise.
