NXT UK held its first night of post-TakeOver Blackpool II television tapings at York Barbican today. Here are the results:

- Dark match: Michael May defeated Iestyn Rees
Rees controlled the early stages of the match, but May rolled him up for the win.

Devlin wrestled the first few minutes in his entrance jacket. He pinned Ligero after hitting the Devlin Side suplex.
- Ilja Dragunov defeated Josh Terry in a squash match
Dragunov pinned Terry after hitting a Torpedo Moscow running uppercut. He went on to hype up his match against Finn Balor at Worlds Collide, but was interrupted by Joe Coffey.
Coffey explained that Dragunov was never part of Gallus and blamed him for his loss at TakeOver. He wished Dragunov luck at Worlds Collide, but said that Dragunov has something to settle with Coffey when he's back.
- Travis Banks defeated Brian Kendrick to qualify for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship match at Worlds Collide
Banks kicked out of Sliced Bread #2 and hit a Slice of Heaven and a Kiwi Crusher to pin Kendrick. The fatal four-way title match at Worlds Collide will be NXT Cruiserweight Champion Angel Garza defending against Isaiah "Swerve" Scott, Devlin, and Banks.

In her NXT UK debut, Valkyrie got the win with a double stomp off the ropes.
