Triple H took over the creative direction throughout WWE, and that change was very apparent when NXT UK, a brand that was largely ignored by Vince McMahon, showed up at HeatWave. Now the table is set for a huge event, one that could spell the end of NXT UK as well.

Tyler Bate won the NXT UK Championship back in July of this year. He also appeared during the closing moments of NXT HeatWave this week. WWE has interesting plans for NXT and NXT UK at their next special.

The young veteran confronted NXT Champion Bron Breakker after his successful title defense against JD McDonagh at the August 16th special edition of NXT 2.0 Both of them posed with their titles to end the show. Interestingly enough, Bate showed up with that title before he even won it on NXT UK television.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Alvarez noted that WWE is planning an NXT vs NXT UK event on the same day as AEW All Out on September 4th.


I was forwarded a deal today that they sent to the fans, they are doing an NXT TakeOver style show on September 4th, the same day as AEW All Out. It appears to be an NXT vs NXT UK kind of show, so Hunter is all in on this wear.

We will have to wait and see how WWE books the event in the coming weeks. Obviously, pro wrestling fans are in for a very busy September 4th. Fans will certainly be excited to see how it all plays out, whichever show they watch live.
