Announced NXT UK Card (10/14/2021)
- Blair Davenport vs. Stevie Turner
- Flash Morgan Webster vs. Sha Samuels
- NXT UK Championship: Ilja Dragunov vs. A-Kid
Davenport Returns At Turner’s Request
Blair Davenport was suspended from NXT UK last month for a shocking double attack. She first attacked Nina Samuels before their scheduled match. Then as Assistant to the General Manager Sid Scala tried to stop the assault, she hit him with a Bea-Trigger and Falcon Arrow.
Not content with sitting at home, Davenport attacked Stevie Turner during her suspension. At Turner’s request, Scala has reinstated Davenport so the two can fight it out in the ring. Turner may have ordered more than she can handle and looks set to be the next person taken out by Davenport’s deadly use of the Falcon Arrow.

Flash Morgan Webster vs. Sha Samuels
Last week, Flash Morgan Webster waited for Sha Samuels to pass him in the corridor and then slapped him across the face. Samuels chased him throughout the BT Sports Studio but couldn’t catch up to Webster. He’ll get his hands on him this week in the ring.
So my first attempt at defeating a big man didn’t exactly go the way I planned.

NXT UK Championship Ilja Dragunov vs. A-Kid
A-Kid won a triple threat match against Rampage Brown and Nathan Frazer to earn the opportunity to face Ilja Dragunov for the NXT UK Championship. A-Kid lost a NXT UK Championship match against previous champion WALTER in January. That was a fantastic match and since then A-Kid has had great bouts with Tyler Bate and Jordan Devlin.
You could argue the only person on the NXT UK roster that puts on great matches as constantly as A-Kid is Ilja Dragunov. So it makes a lot of sense that his first title defence is against A-Kid.
It will be an excellent wrestling match that will continue to get people talking about NXT UK. It is likely Dragunov will retain and move on to mouth-watering matches with the previously mentioned Bate and Devlin.
