Joseph Conners defeated A-Kid via pinfall
The “TakeOver worthy” Conners pinned A-Kid after hitting him with a Don’t Look Down. A-Kid had previously kicked out of the manoeuvre. This was by far Joseph Conners’ best match in NXT UK thus far, and A-Kid is quickly becoming one of the brand’s standout performers.
