WWE NXT is coming to the UK for the first time this December. Here’s everything you need to know…
What is NXT?
It’s a developmental branch of the WWE family which was founded in 2013. Since 2014 though, NXT has hosted a series of special events (comparable to the main roster PPVs) broadcast on the WWE Network. Despite being a developmental territory, it’s hailed for its high quality of athletes.
It has serious girl power
NXT has long been praised for its focus on female wrestlers, which has led to the increase in opportunities offered to Divas on the main roster.
Now it’s coming to the UK
WWE NXT will make its UK debut this December, with a seven night run between 10 – 16 December.
Paul Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative, says…
“Coming off NXT’s biggest event in history, NXT Takeover: Brooklyn, we are thrilled to announce our first international tour. The tour marks a major milestone in the continued expansion of the NXT brand.”
Here’s who will feature in the UK tour
NXT Champion Finn Bálor, Samoa Joe, Bayley, Tyler Breeze, Dana Brooke and Emma are all expected to appear in the NXT UK tour, plus loads more.
NXT Champion Finn Bálor says…
“On behalf of all the NXT Superstars and Divas, we are extremely excited at the opportunity to perform for the WWE Universe in the UK. I look forward to the opportunity to return to where I started my career, giving fans new memories that they will never forget.”
