Previously on the Best and Worst of NXT UK: Danny Burch and Pete Dunne tore the house down with some digits-based combat, the Wolfgang Gang solidified their threat, and we gazed in wonder at the impossible 6-foot-5 giant that is Eddie Dennis.

Best: RIP Train Station To Hell
We’ve finally made it to a new set of tapings — apparently NXT UK’s got 10 years of these things in the can and Pete Dunne is actually in his late 30s now — and it’s time to say goodbye to the spooky train station with evil lighting and that awkward video wall where guys had to cut promos with their backs to the entire crowd. This week we’re coming to you from the Insomnia Gaming Festival in Birmingham, which lacks the delightful Britishness of “Royal Albert Hall” and the comedy name of the “Corn Exchange.” I was hoping they’d shoot it from the Governor’s Croquet Field at the beautiful Green Beat Depository in Yorkshire.
But yeah, it’s a good looking venue, and at least there are some fans on the hard cam side this time. I don’t think I could stomach another six hours of nobody on the roster being able to make eye contact with a human being.
