WWE is making a lot of changes to NXT, and that includes a new logo. They pre-taped next week’s episode, and you can get those spoilers here. On that note, this article contains another big spoiler.

Ilja Dragunov was one of the most dominant forces in WWE’s NXT UK brand. He was the NXT UK Champion after he defeated Gunther for the title, but had to vacate it earlier this year.

NXT UK officially ended after the Worlds Collide event earlier this month. WWE taped the September 20th episode of NXT on September 14th from the WWE Performance Center.

During the tapings, Ilja Dragunov made his surprising debut, much to the delight of fans. Dragunov was involved in a segment with NXT Champion Bron Breakker and JD McDonagh to set up a match in the future.


We will have to wait and see how Ilja Dragunov will fare in NXT. He is certainly an excellent addition to the NXT roster.
