The Queen’s Speech 

As this year has passed us by so quickly, and draws to a close, we must take time to reflect and look back to see all that we have achieved. Be proud of your accomplishments, no matter how irrelevant you or they are. This year has shown that nothing will hold us down. The relaunch of NXT UK showed the entire world how passionate every single roster member is about this great business. And most importantly, I returned even more ruthless and fabulous than ever. And I continued to inspire millions of people all around the world. And despite the fact that you will never be as successful or as fabulous as me, you can be mediocre, just like Piper Niven.

The year 2021 is just around the corner, and it will provide us all with a new clean slate. A new book with empty pages for us to write words on. Someone of my prestige and caliber does not write words in books. I have an assistant to do that for me. But the year 2021 will be the year of The Fashionista, Jinny. And I will continue to put each and every single girl in this division in their place. And I will become the crowned queen of NXT UK. But before we go into the new year, we still need to celebrate Christmas. A Merry Christmas to each and everyone of you. And I understand you won’t have a spectacular day celebrating like me, but that’s because I live a life of luxury and you do not. But I hope you can have a great day celebrating with what very little you have. Merry Christmas and stay safe.

Andy Shepherd: Humble and inspiring as ever, no doubt The Fashionista’s stocking will be overflowing as always this festive season. But now we move from Knightsbridge to The North Pole or was that the black country?

Dave Mastiff Segment  

Welcome, WWE Universe to this special episode of NXT UK. Now, you know me as Dave Mastiff, but because it’s a special time of year, i’m going to be Banta Claus. The NXT UK Roster have sent Santana or should I say Banta Claus their christmas list. Let’s take a look at them, shall we? First up, we have Jack Starz. This is Jack Starz who would like some life insurance. Tyson T-Bone, he would like some new crayons to color himself in with. We have that scamp, Supernova 11, Noam Dar, and he would like a great big giant gob stopper.

Ilja Dragunov, the mad Russian, it says here he would like some decaffeinated coffee and a meditation guide. It’s The Captain, The Gaffer, The Game, Triple H, and it says here that Triple H would like a multi-pack of flavored water, for whatever reason. Top boy of The Gallus Firm, Joe Coffey, and it says here that he would like a brand new cricket bat. Now, when the NXT UK Roster wake up on Christmas morning, they are going to find out what list they have been on, the naughty or nice one. If they have been on the naughty list, they are going to get some season’s beatings from Dave Mastiff.

Mark Andrews: Hey, guys. Mark Andrews here and I just want to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone who is celebrating, except for, of course, Eddie Dennis and The Hunt. Jingle Bells, Wild Boar Smells, Primate Ran Away.

Ashton Smith: Hi there, it’s WWE NXT UK Superstar, Ashton Smith. And it’s the festive season. And you know unfortunately Oliver Carter is not here celebrating with me. He’s back home in Ghana. So if you are lucky enough to have your loved ones nearby, hug them, kiss them. Make sure you cherish them. And, if not, maybe just give them a call once in a while, Oliver. But, anyway, Merry Christmas.

Oliver Carter: Here is NXT UK Superstar, Oliver Carter, wishing the whole WWE Universe a Merry Christmas. And thinking about that, actually, I have to call Ashton one of these days. But that’s Mr. Oliver’s problem. Once again, Merry Christmas.
