WWE NXT Results: Highlights, Analysis and Grades for April 19

3 of 5


Tyler Bate and Jack Gallagher Interview

Gallagher and Bate are interviewed about their WWE UK Championship match for next week. Gallagher says he will win, while Bate claims he will retain.

Nothing too crazy here, but the match should be fun. Look for Bate to retain here, and going forward, until this weekly UK show begins.

Bobby Roode Being Checked on by Doctors

We come back to see Roode still in the ring, being checked on by doctors after taking Itami’s GTS. It’s a great sell of the move, making it look dangerous and potentially fatal for Roode’s NXT Championship reign.

Heavy Machinery at the Performance Center

We see Heavy Machinery filming a video of Drew McIntyre and Andrade “Cien” Almas having a mini-altercation. Almas challenges him to a match for next week.

They’re continuing to make mention of Almas as a party animal, which has been all talk. Where are the vignettes of him at clubs?

Andrade “Cien” Almas vs. Danny Burch

Result: Andrade “Cien” Almas defeated Danny Burch via pinfall.

Rating: 2.0 out of 5 stars

Good to see that Burch is getting another opportunity after his bloodied ending to his match at the UK Tournament. Obviously, he’s only going to be an enhancement talent, but it’s better than nothing.

Again, Almas’ personality continued to be played up with going out to the clubs. If we’re not getting vignettes, what about a promo? It doesn’t make much sense.
