We are back with comments from Dave Mastiff about his match on Saturday against Eddie Dennis. Eddie had something to prove. He wanted to prove he was the monster in NXT UK. When Eddie stood up to him, Eddie was defeated. Maybe Eddie could not swallow the fact that he is not good enough and had to make it personal. Dave says Eddie knows he cannot get the job done the right way so he wants to throw the rule book out the window. You may think Dave lacks killer instinct, but Eddie lacks more. He will prove that Eddie is good at taking a beating from someone like Dave Mastiff. No one has pushed him this far before. If you want to know what killer instinct is, you will find it on January 12th.

We have a video package for the NXT UK Women’s Championship Match between Rhea Ripley and Toni Storm.
