NXT UK New Year’s Resolutions For 2022
— NXT UK (@NXTUK) December 30, 2021
Dave Mastiff: WWE Universe, it’s Dave Mastiff here. I just want to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year. And many people will be making resolutions to make them become better people or to become better at something in their life, and I’m no different. Since teaming up with Jack Starz, I found out that I need to smile a little bit more, so my New Year’s Resolution is exactly that, and I’m going to start right now.
Jack Starz: Jack Starz is going into the New Year much the same. Same drive, same vision, same dog mentality. However, one thing that will change in 2022 is that Dave Mastiff and Jack Starz will become NXT UK Tag Team Champions. Happy New Year.
Ashton Smith: Happy New Year! It’s 2022 and this year, I’m not making any New Year’s Resolutions because the goal remains the same. Ready and forward, always forward.
Saxon Huxley: Saxon Huxley is going to stomp his way through 2022 as the NXT UK Universe all says, there he goes.
Primate: Christmas has been and gone. Now, it’s for Happy New Year’s. And my New Year Resolution, to inflict as much pain and suffering upon as many people as possible. Happy New Year.
Ilja Dragunov: I’m the NXT UK Champion, Ilja Dragunov, and I wish everyone the very, very best and a Happy New Year.
Oliver Carter: In 2022, Smith and Carter shows the whole WWE Universe why they’re the freshest flavor of the brand, why they’re the hottest tag team under the sun, and why they always move forward.
Rohan Raja: What is Rohan Raja’s New Year’s Resolution? I’ll tell you what, In 2021 Die Familia absolutely destroyed Gallus. Now, I think for 2022, we’re going to destroy the whole roster.
Sam Gradwell: Hey, you all. This is “The Thunderstorm” Sam Gradwell with some New Year’s Resolutions for 2022. I vow to become a master of the paranormal and a qualified exorcist because there will be no demons around here on my watch. And I also vow to keep rattling jowls, wobbling kidneys and ruining days until the thunderstorm is top of the pile in NXT UK. So, Happy New Year. Have a good one, be safe and don’t be a yogurt.
Nathan Frazer: I suppose my New Year’s Resolution is to just take the next step, to not just be another guy on the roster. I want to be the guy and I know I can do it, so I’m going to do it.
Amale: Hi, everyone. This is Amale, your French NXT UK Superstar wishing you a Happy New Year. May all your dreams come true and keep hope alive in 2022.
Kenny Williams: 2022 is going to go the exact same way as this year did, and that is why anybody getting in the ring with me ending up under the boot as scum in the earth.
Sha Samuels: Oi, Oi! What a year, 2021. I made my debut on NXT UK. Noam Dar wins The Heritage Cup. How can things get any better? I’ll tell you how, because the odds say 2022 is going to be even bigger. Happy New Year’s, mugs. Have a good one. Peace.
Xia Brookside: So, you want to know my New Year’s Resolution? Well, I can’t tell you because then it won’t come true.
Wolfgang: New Year, New You, aye? All The Best For The Bells.
Eddie Dennis: So 2021 is the year I’d rather forget. But as they say, you’re only as good as your last performance. So January 6th, Symbiosis will run through Smith and Carter, and all of a sudden we’re one win away from another date on top of Moustache Mountain. Now, Trent, you and I have a storied history. I can’t think of a better final chapter than my Symbiosis ending this pathetic fairytale of a title reign.
Nina Samuels: NXT UK Universe, I want to wish you a very Happy New Year and I hope that 2022 brings you everything that you need because we all know the world needs more Nina.
