WWE’s NXT UK brand took a huge hit during the pandemic. They were unable to run shows for months, cancelling a TakeOver event in the process. The brand returned, but fans did not. That is about to change.
NXT UK is welcoming back fans on Thursday, October 14th. The main event of that big show will see Ilja Dragunov defend the NXT UK Title against A-Kid. That should be a big main event to welcome fans back.
The brand made this official announcement on Twitter as they sent out a blast on Tuesday morning.
#NXTUK is set to welcome back fans to the BT Sport Studio starting Thursday, October 14, airing at 3pm ET / 8pm BST on @PeacockTV in the US and @WWENetwork everywhere else.
They are filming for two nights on October 6th and October 7th at the BT Sport Studios. “A limited number of guests” are being invited to attend the tapings. It does not appear that those tickets are open to the public just yet.
Anyone entering the BT Sport Studios for the tapings must also present a proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result. BT Sport Studios has been the home of NXT UK since they returned to action, but this will mark the first time those stars got to perform in front of actual fans.
