WWE is reportedly planning to carry an NXT vs. NXT UK supershow on Sept. 4, which is similar day as AEW’s All Out pay-per-view.
Based on Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer Radio (h/t Subhojeet Mukherjee of Ringside Information), WWE despatched promotional materials to some followers indicating that an NXT premium dwell occasion can be held on Sept. 4 with NXT vs. NXT UK branding.
It was initially reported by Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics (h/t WrestlingInc’s Sai Mohan) final month that an NXT occasion could be held on the identical day as All Out, though the potential NXT UK tie-in wasn’t talked about at the moment.
The groundwork was seemingly laid for NXT vs. NXT UK on Tuesday’s episode of NXT, as NXT UK stars corresponding to Gallus, Blair Davenport and NXT UK champion Tyler Bate appeared on the present.
Gallus attacked Diamond Mine and laid down a problem to NXT UK tag group champions Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen, Davenport confronted Indi Hartwell backstage, and Bate confronted NXT champion Bron Breakker within the ring after Breakker retained his title over JD McDonagh in the principle occasion.
If the NXT vs. NXT UK present occurs, will probably be the primary of its sort since WWE Worlds Collide befell the identical weekend because the Royal Rumble in 2020.
On that present, NXT and NXT UK wrestlers took half in a battle for supremacy, and it was headlined by Imperium vs. Undisputed Period.
This time round, it appears seemingly that Breakker and Bate will headline the present, given how NXT went off the air this week.
WWE hasn’t but confirmed the occasion, and it is not clear the place it is going to happen, however logic suggests it may very well be held in the UK since WWE Conflict on the Fortress will happen in Cardiff, Wales, on Sept. 3.
Additionally, since AEW All Out has an 8 p.m. begin time on Sept. 4, doing an NXT present within the UK would permit WWE to have it earlier within the day, in order to not battle with AEW.
If WWE would not announce it beforehand, it stands to purpose that subsequent week’s episode of NXT may very well be when the present is made official, as there can be loads of fallout from the looks of a number of NXT UK stars on this week’s episode.
