Announced NXT UK Card (3/31/22) 

  • Heritage Cup Championship: Noam Dar vs. Mark Coffey 
  • Trent Seven vs. Ashton Smith 
  • Xia Brookside vs. Amale 

Dar Seeks Clean Sweep Of Gallus 

Heritage Cup Champion Noam Dar has defeated two members of GallusJoe Coffey and Wolfgang – in his previous two defenses of his championship on NXT UK. This week, he will take on the third and final member of the Glasgow faction, Mark Coffey.

Mark Coffey is the most inexperienced Gallus member in singles contests. His championship opportunity came as a surprise to many, including his own brother. Dar thinks this will be the easiest match of his Heritage Cup title reign so far on NXT UK, but he’ll want to ensure he doesn’t overlook his opponent. 

Smith Looks to Earn Tag Team Title Shot 

If Ashton Smith can beat Trent Seven, he will earn a shot at the NXT UK Tag Team Championship. Smith feels he and his teammate, Oliver Carter, were screwed over by Seven in their previous shot at the titles he holds with Bate.

So, Bate and Seven offered an opportunity: if they beat them both in singles matches, the rematch would be Smith and Carter’s. Carter defeated Bate a few weeks ago, so now, everything rests on Smith.  

 Seven, for his part, has reiterated that there’s nothing he won’t do to win the match and keep hold of his gold. 

Brookside’s Time Against Amale 

Amale convincingly beat Xia Brookside in February.

Brookside dusted off her GCSE French textbook and charmed Amale into agreeing to a rematch last week. What Amale didn’t see was Brookside making a call to her “daddy” and informing him it was ‘time’. Quelle heure est-il? We’ll see during the match!

We will also see Meiko Satomura’s response to Isla Dawn stealing her title last week, and the final build-up to Roderick Strong’s challenge to Ilja Dragunov’s NXT UK Championship.
