It’s another title match this wee as the now lighter Trent Seven is challenging Jordan Devlin. This comes after Seven has spent several weeks dropping weight to get under the 205lb weight limit for a Cruiserweight Title shot and only made weight this morning. That could make for an interesting main event so let’s get to it.
We look at the weigh-in on the Bump this morning with Seven making weight.
Nathan Frazier vs. Ashton Smith
Frazier is formerly known as (and acknowledged here) as Ben Carter. Smith powers him down in a hurry to start and then grabs a hammerlock. Back up and Frazier slips between the legs and takes Smith down for a headlock. That earns Frazier a big shove into the ropes and Smith grabs an armbar. A hard clothesline gives Smith two and we hit the bodyscissors to stay on Frazier’s ribs.
That’s broken up in a hurry and Frazier tries a springboard high crossbody, but Smith rolls through into a hard slam instead. Frazier is back up with a shotgun dropkick into the corner and a Coast To Coast dropkick gets two. Frazier’s moonsault is countered but he flips out of a reverse DDT. A Nightmare On Helm Street sets up the frog splash to give Frazier the pin at 7:03.
Result: Nathan Frazier b. Ashton Smith – Frog splash (7:03)
Ilja Dragunov tries to apologize for snapping so many times but Sam Gradwell interrupts. They can fight in any kind of match and Gradwell knows he will win.

There is going to be a special on April 8 called NXT UK: Prelude.

Meiko Satomura vs. Dani Luna
Satomura can’t take her down by the leg to start and we go to an early standoff. A front facelock works better for Satomura so Luna goes with a test of strength instead. Satomura chops down instead though and starts grinding away on a headlock. Luna suplexes her way to freedom so Satomura nails a running spinwheel kick. Satomura gets caught with a superplex but manages to win a slugout anyway. Luna gets two off a clothesline but can’t a suplex. Instead Satomura hits Scorpio Rising for the pin at 6:02.
Result: Meiko Satomura b. Dani Luna – Scorpio Rising (6:02)
Jinny and Joseph Conners say they lost via cheating so it is stricken from the record.
Dani Luna isn’t ashamed to lose to the best and leaves with Flash Morgan Webster and Mark Andrews.
Here is Walter for a chat. He talks about everyone he has beaten and wants fresh competition. Cue Rampage Brown to say name the time and place. Walter goes to take him down but gets shoved down, which leaves Water looking scared/shaken.
Xia Brookside torments Nina Samuels as she trains in the gym. Samuels is not pleased as Brookside keeps coming up with one more little thing after another. This includes kicking over a soap buckle.
Kenny Williams and Amir Jordan are ready for their Tag Team Title shot but Jordan doesn’t want more cheating.
Next week: Sam Gradwell vs. Ilja Dragunov, No DQ and at Prelude: Rampage Brown challenges Walter.
Cruiserweight Title: Jordan Devlin vs. Trent Seven
Devlin is defending and Seven charges straight at him for the rapid fire chops. A big chop knocks Devlin outside for more chops and a ram into the steps as Seven is on fire early. The snapdragon suplex on the floor drops Devlin and gets two back inside, followed by the rapid fire chops in the corner. Devlin grabs a headlock but gets slammed into a legdrop for two instead. The release Rock Bottom into a standing moonsault gives Devil two but his neck is keeping him from following up.
We hit the chinlock with a knee in Seven’s back and there’s a shot to the face to put Seven down. Some more shots to the back set up Devlin’s own slam into a legdrop for two but it’s too early for the Cloverleaf. Seven gets in a fast DDT, followed by Diamond Dust to rock Devlin again. They head outside with Devlin being sent hard into the barricade but Seven misses a dive off the top. The Cloverleaf goes on with Seven taking a good while to get to the rope.
Seven’s Seven Star lariat is countered into the Devlin Side but Seven reverses into a Seven Star Lariat for two. Devlin grabs an Emerald Flosion for a close two and it’s time to go up. That means Seven can hit the dragon superplex into the Birminghammer for two more. Back up and Devlin goes to the eyes to set up the backdrop driver for two. With nothing else working, Devlin hits the 450 to retain at 17:38.
Result: Jordan Devlin b. Trent Seven – 450 splash (17:38)
Nathan Frazier b. Ashton Smith – Frog splash
Meiko Satomura b. Dani Luna – Scorpio Rising
Jordan Devlin b. Trent Seven – 450
