Sam Gradwell Reviews 2020 

All right, here we go. This is NXT UK’s Thunderstorm, Sam Gradwell with a review of 2020. There’s a rabbit over there, but don’t let it bother you. I’m a wonderful man with a fantastic brain and a remarkable set of lungs. I’m the only person in history of mankind who can breathe on the moon, but that’s none of your concern. That’s between me and NASA. I know exactly where I’ve been in 2020. You can’t tell me anything. I keep a very, very detailed diary. I don’t write anything down. No pens, no paper, nothing like that. It’s all here in my memory. Got you use every sense you’ve been given, otherwise, it atrophies or you got a daft and soft like a yogurt. You know who told me that? My mate Jack from London. And he bottoms a giraffe. He can’t be bought. Anyway, 2020, January was very cold. February was slightly warmer. March, it all broke and locked us down, but we adapted, we adjusted, and I became an expert in celestial investigation.

I learned to fish. Every day I went down to the river with my bare arms swiped from the water, no less than 12 Basa. Basa is a Vietnamese Cat Fish and is extremely hard to grapple, but I did it. NXT UK, I ended up stocking up the freezer to keep the people fed all the way through the lockdown. When we emerged, we had the Heritage Cup Tournament that blew people’s heads off. We had a main event for the ages between WALTER and Ilja Dragunov For The NXT UK Championship. And they treated each other exactly like my granddad treated the hedge that wouldn’t stop growing. Chop, chop, chop, off your pock. We had the return of me, Sam Gradwell, The Thunderstorm, defying the odds, back on your screens, proving exactly what a complex, beautiful man I really am. And in 2021, I plan on doing nothing except rattling kidney’s, waddling jowls and wetting people from January all through December. So, Happy New Year, you bunch of joggers.

Pretty Deadly: Happy New Year. And welcome to Casa, Yes Boy. Casa Pretty Deadly. For one night only, mi casa, su casa. Now, Sam has been deejaying for me all evening, so it’s only fair I slaved away in the kitchen for him and made a couple of cocktails. Now, be honest with me. Let me know what you think. I’ve just been playing around. Up first, this one has a bite to it. I can smell it from here. That bad? Oh, I thought it look bad, but it taste worse. Sorry. What did you call that? I call this one, The Hunt. That’s what I’ve been playing around with. All right, see how this one goes. Have a smell. It smells like fear, which is interesting. It’s strong.

I feel like it’s missing a few ingredients. Like it’s been on the top shelf for far too long, stale. Right. Interesting you say that because, I’ve been calling this one Gallus, which, you know, funny. Get it washed down, boy, if you don’t mind. No, no, that’s Ashton-Oliver. It’s terrible. I’ll make it up to you. This one you’re going to like. It’s a special one just for you, boy. Just for you. It looks good, it smells good. That taste good. That’s a winner. Let me guess the name. You know it. The Pretty Deadly? Yes, boy. A drink to a truly quintessential first. 2020, people got a taste, you know a little teaser, if you will. 2021, everybody is going to have a mouthful. So, whether you celebrate with your partner, dancing the night away or you’re alone by yourself, crying, from us, have a Happy New Year.

Jinny: Happy New Years to each and everyone of you. I hope you have an amazing day celebrating, but please do not set yourself any New Year’s Resolutions as you will fail them all.

Ilja Dragunov: With a year filled by beautiful moments, challenging moments maybe, I wish anyone to be grateful for what will come. Happy New Year.
