WWE U.K. Championship Special live results (May 19, 2017): Tyler Bate vs. Mark Andrews

On May 6 - 7, while the WWE main roster was in Europe, the United Kingdom and cruiserweight rosters took over Norwich, England for two days of action. Those two shows have been packaged into one new WWE Network event - the U.K. Championship Special - which will debut on Friday, May 19 at 3PM Eastern!

Not content to just give us four matches worth of action, Triple H also brought in legendary announcer Jim Ross to call the action along with Britain’s own Nigel McGuinness!

We'll post match results here. Most importantly, this gives you Cagesiders a dedicated place to rave and/or bitch about whatever goes down on WWE Network’s latest special - during its initial broadcast!

Enjoy the show!

- The show opens with highlights from the tournament back in January, along with comments from several of the men on this show.

- Jim Ross & Nigel McGuinness welcome us to the Special, and then it’s time for video profiles on our first two competitors, Wolfgang & Joseph Connors.

- Wolfgang def. Joseph Conners via pinfall following a senton in ~11 minutes

- TJP & The Brian Kendrick def. Rich Swann & Dan Moloney via pinfall (TBK on Moloney with a roll-up) in ~11:30

- Interview with Trent Seven, where he discusses the arm injury he suffered in the bout that got him into the #1 contender match (watch it here), but confirms he’s cleared to compete.

- Yes, Dunne brought the Progress title with him

#1 contender match:

Pete Dunne def. Trent Seven via pinfall following Bitter End (and a rake of the eyes) in ~16 minutes

- Post-match, Dunne says he did what he promised to do... hurt people. Tomorrow night, he’s taking what’s rightfully his - by any means necessary.

Championship match:

Tyler Bate def. Mark Andrews via pinfall following Tyler Driver ‘97 to retain his title in ~24:30

- Dunne attacks Andrews on the ramp after the bell, which brings out William Regal to get in Pete’s face. The two men who’ll face off Saturday night in Chicago have a staredown to close the show as Dunne eyed Bate’s title and Tyler refused a handshake.
