WWE NXT: UK #177
Location: BT Sports Studio in London, England, UK
First broadcast: January 6, 2022
Highlight video for the show:
NXT UK is back from a two week break and a packed issue awaits us. NXT UK Women’s Champion Meiko Satomura will defend her title against Blair Davenport. Regarding this, at the beginning of the show, we are shown a hype video. Davenport is unbeaten in his NXT UK career so far and is therefore a strong rival to the previously dominant champion. The following tag teams fight the first match of the new year. Symbiosis meets Ashton Smith and Oliver Carter.

Match Time: 09:37
Blair Davenport gets ready for her main event match against Meiko Satomura.
Pretty Deadly is backstage and shows her displeasure over not having a rematch against Mustache Mountain long ago. Both were also sidelined in the “mini-tournament” and they are not even there. They just won’t let it go.
We watch a video of NXT United Kingdom Champion Ilja Dragunov. We get to know about his personal life and his family. They are his inspiration in life and he fights till he leaves for his family. Jordan Devlin took the feud to a whole new level by mentioning Dragunov’s family in his promo three weeks ago. This inspired the champion time and again and sooner or later Dragunov would take revenge on Jordan Devlin and defeat him.
Three weeks ago, A-Kid was able to score a win against Nathan Fraser. This has made him the number one challenger for the NXT UK Heritage Cup Championship, which is currently held by Noam Dar. He looks at the highlights from backstage and looks a little nervous. Sha Samuels is with him and wants to know if Dar has doubts. The reigning champion is motivated and in no way panicked to get in the ring against A-Kid.
We see Tayman, Charlie Dempsey and Rohan King backstage. The “Family” is looking to assert itself against Jack Starz and Dave Mastiff next week to take another step towards the NXT UK Tag Team Championship.
Zea Brookside won via the pin after the backbreaker against Myla Grace.

Meiko Satomura is also getting ready for her title match against Blair Davenport.
We take a look at the first NXT UK Heritage Cup Championship match that A-Kid won. Now he wants to get back on top and remove Noam Dar from the trophy.
Jack Starz and Dave Mastiff are also gearing up for “The Family” and both superstars look to crown the new year with the NXT UK Tag Team Championships.
Amale opened up about his emotional journey in WWE a few weeks back and many have been inspired by his story. Although Genie is less enthusiastic about the video and such news will not increase his respect. Emilia Mackenzie doesn’t think much of the message either, but Amale can no longer live with it and pushes Mackenzie against the glass door and warns her not to behave so disrespectfully.
We see a message from Walter. He will play his last match on NXT UK next week. His opponent is Nathan Fraser. Walter doesn’t think much of Fraser and he doesn’t understand the hype surrounding the young superstar. He’ll show the newcomer what it means to play a match against a “ring general.”

After the match, Davenport attacked Satomura and inflicted several knee blows in the face. The latter could be composed and celebrated with the title Davenport. Today’s NXT UK issue has gone off air with these pictures.
