Pretty Deadly capture NXT UK Tag Team Championships

Lewis Howley and Sam Stoker dethroned Gallus to win the NXT UK Tag Team Championships.

The reign of Gallus (Mark Coffey & Wolfgang) as NXT UK Tag Team Champions came to an end on the 2/25 edition of NXT UK on the WWE Network. The duo defended their titles against Pretty Deadly (Lewis Howley & Sam Stoker) in the main event.

Towards the conclusion of the match, Pretty Deadly lured Wolfgang in to chase them around the ring which led to Lewis Howley tackling Wolfgang over the guardrail. Howley and Stoker capitalized on the 2-on-1 advantage and captured their first pieces of championship gold in WWE.

Mark Coffey and Wolfgang’s reign as champions date back to October of 2019 when they won them at an NXT UK TV taping in Brentwood, England.

Scheduled for next week’s NXT UK is a new edition of Supernova Sessions with guest Tyler Bate, hosted by Noam Dar. Kay Lee Ray is defending her NXT UK Women’s Title against Meiko Satomura. On 3/11, there will be a mixed tag team match that will see Jinny and Joseph Conners taking on Piper Niven and Jack Starz. In addition to the 3/11 lineup, Tyler Bate will face Dave Mastiff in singles competition.

Today’s NXT UK episode also saw the WWE in-ring debut of Bailey Matthews, son of William Regal.
