Williams Aims To Weather Gradwell’s Storm

The UK’s Met Office has issued two weather warnings as it anticipates Storm Dudley and Eunice will impact the country with high winds and snow between Wednesday and Friday. Within the BT Sport Studios on Thursday, Kenny Williams is hoping he can weather the Thunderstorm of Sam Gradwell.

Gradwell christened himself the Thunderstorm because of his habit of ruining people’s day. Williams first began provoking Gradwell when he struggled to find a tag team partner off the back of his previous antics. Gradwell managed to secure the help of Saxon Huxley for his tag match against Pretty Deadly. But Williams interfered and cost Gradwell and Huxley the match.

Williams has since claimed that the Thunderstorm is the right moniker for Gradwell but for different reasons. Williams claims that – like a storm – all Gradwell does is make a bit of noise before leaving having not made an impact. The two will finally meet this week in a stormy fight.

Devlin Hopes To Put Stop To Gallus Boys Fun

Gallus – the faction comprising Wolfgang, Mark Coffey, and Joe Coffey – have been enjoying themselves outside of the ring lately. Their schoolboy pranks have caused conflict with a number of NXT UK stars including Die Familie. 

Jordan Devlin is one superstar that the Gallus Boys have provoked on multiple occasions. From stealing his sunglasses and ring jacket to locking him out of his dressing rooms, Gallus has given Devlin more than cause for frustration. Last week,  they hijacked his interview segment with Noam Dar, and this match was set as a result. If the rest of Gallus get involved we might see Dar and Sha Samuels even the odds for Devlin.

Anything Else?

Yes. We will get another match. It is likely it will be from the NXT UK women’s division. There will also be final hype ahead of Moustache Mountain defending their NXT UK Tag Team Championship against Ashton Smith & Oliver Carter next week.
