We told you last weekend WWE was coming back to UK for a new UK Championship tournament set to take place in London on June 18 and 19. More details were revealed today by the company on how it will take place and who will be involved. The UK Tournament will be a one-night only event and NXT Superstars will be apart of the shows
The events will kick off with a United Kingdom Championship Tournament on Monday, June 18. Though the competitors have yet to be revealed, it is now known that the winner of the tournament will earn an opportunity to challenge WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne the following night inside London’s most vaunted venue.
The BruiserWeight will also be in action on June 18, teaming with The Moustache Mountain Tyler Bate and Trent Seven to face NXT’s Undisputed ERA. This match announcement comes on the heels of Roderick Strong’s betrayal of Dunne, and subsequent joining with Undisputed ERA, at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans.
In addition to Dunne’s title defense against the tournament winner, the event on Tuesday, June 19, will feature three NXT Championship Matches, including an NXT North American Championship Match, an NXT Women’s Championship Match and an NXT Tag Team Championship Match.
Adam Cole, Shayna Baszler and Undisputed ERA are the current title holders, respectively, but with NXT TakeOver: Chicago happening just days before the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament events this June, there’s no telling who will be champions when WWE returns to Royal Albert Hall for the first time since 1991. Tickets for both nights are available now at www.bookingsdirect.com and www.livenation.co.uk.
