WWE acknowledged a title change that happened at NXT UK tapings in Brentwood this Friday night. (SPOILERS ALERT) Gallus’ Wolfgang & Mark Coffey defeated Flash Morgan Webster & Mark Andrews to win the NXT UK Tag Team Championship. There’s no word yet on when the title change will air, but it should be some time this month or early November.

Also, Tom Phillips has joined the WWE NXT UK brand as an announcer. As seen on Twitter, Phillips is calling the NXT UK TV tapings in Brentwood, Essex, England, with Nigel McGuinness. Phillips is replacing Vic Joseph, who had been calling NXT UK with Nigel up until this week. Joseph is now calling RAW with Dio Maddin and WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler. Tom had been calling SmackDown Live with Corey Graves and Byron Saxton until FOX Premiere tonight. 

Fans can now see the first 4 nights of G1 Climax 29 with French commentary on NJPW World on-demand service. NJPW French commentators Norbert Feuillan and Alain Mistrangélo are at the helm to describe the action in the Nygma language.

NJPW air in France on J-One channel but the weekly shows have been put on hold for the moment. Like said in the tweet, NJPW is truly worldwide. The fact is many French people are very attracted by everything related to Japan, from mangas to wrestling.
