WWE expanded to the UK market with the introduction of NXT UK in June 2018. This project gave birth to top talent such as Tyler Bate, Pete Dunne, Gunther and many more. NXT UK talent assumed that WWE was going to shut down the brand for good, which is what happened in the end.

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 Europe will be debuting next year, now that the Worlds Collide event concluded earlier this month. WWE has filed for two new trademarks as the company applied for “NXT Europe” and “NXT Global” on September 16th for entertainment purposes with The United States Patent and Trademark Office. Here is the description for both filings:

“Trademark registration is intended to cover the categories of entertainment services, namely, a show about sports entertainment; entertainment services, namely, the production and exhibition of a documentary series; entertainment services, namely, a talk show; entertainment services, namely, a show about sports and entertainment; entertainment services, namely, the production and exhibition of professional wrestling events rendered live and through broadcast media including television and distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; entertainment services, namely wrestling-related on-going reality based television program; entertainment services, namely, a television show about entertainment; entertainment services, namely, an on-going reality television show; providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network or commercial online service; entertainment services, namely, provision of entertainment information and news; entertainment services, namely, provision of entertainment information and news rendered live and through broadcast media including television and distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; providing information in the fields of sports, entertainment and related topics via an online community portal; providing a website in the field of sports entertainment; entertainment services, namely, ongoing multimedia programs in the field of general human interest, distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; providing entertainment information regarding ongoing television programs via a global computer network; production of television programs; production of multimedia programs.”

WWE NXT Europe and NXT Global have been in the works for many years now. We will have to wait and see how the new brands will turn out to be next year, as fans are certainly excited about them.
