WWE expanded to the UK market with the introduction of NXT UK in June 2018. This project gave birth to numerous top talent such as Tyler Bate, Pete Dunne, Gunther and many more.
WWE recently announced NXT Europe, as NXT UK is a thing of the past. NXT Europe will “reimagine the brand and talent pipeline” with a renewed focus on Europe. NXT UK will be going on hiatus for a few months after their Worlds Collide event next month.
The Worlds Collide event will feature talent from both NXT and NXT UK. According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, all the “NXT UK” stars involved in Worlds Collide are set to be transitioned to the American version of the brand afterwards.
NXT Champion Bron Breakker vs NXT UK Champion Tyler Bate will likely be the main event of the show as well. WWE has also released many talent from NXT UK so far.
There is obviously a lot changing, and it seems that top stars on NXT UK are coming stateside. Now even more room will open up on NXT UK as it transitions into NXT Europe, especially after so many releases. We’ll have to see how the future of NXT will change in the coming months.
