WWE have just made the announcement we’ve all been waiting – NXT UK will begin airing next Wednesday night (October 17th), with weekly episodes starting at 8pm UK time.
The bombshell reveal of the NXT UK was made back in June during the second annual United Kingdom Championship Tournament, with several tapings following. Some of the UK’s top talents were snapped up to exclusive NXT UK contracts, with the likes of The Coffey Brothers, Kenny Williams, Zack Gibson, and Ligero joining the previously signed talent. It was also revealed that there would be Tag Team and Women’s Championships brought in with an extensive women’s roster being created, boosted with huge names like Toni Storm, Jinny, and Isla Dawn.
This is a phenomenal time for British wrestling. To have our guys and gals showcased on the biggest platform possible is mindblowing when you think back to how it used to be. If you’re not familiar with the names featured, you better get to researching. You’re going to be absolutely blown away by the show and judging from what I’ve read from the tapings, there’s some lovely matches waiting to be aired.
Wednesday nights are going to be great for wrestling fans. 205 Live, NXT, the Mae Young Classic, and now NXT UK. Terrific!
