WWE announced last year that NXT UK was going on hiatus ahead of NXT Europe’s launch in 2023. This news came as a shock for fans, as NXT UK is responsible for producing some of the company’s top stars over the years. Many NXT UK wrestlers were held back, but it looks like they are currently sorting out visa difficulties.

Dave Meltzer recently discussed the talents who were kept from NXT UK on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio. He shed light on their current situation and explained why they seem to have vanished. Meltzer noted that a lot of those guys went back over visa difficulties.

Tyler Bate and The Gallus faction are currently getting their visas taken care of. This is why they haven’t been on NXT. The situation is the same with other wrestlers like Doudrop, and Blair Davenport. It’s not that all of them fall into this category, but a lot of those NXT UK wrestlers are currently facing a similar situation.

Yes, it’s Visa. They went they’re doing they went back for over visa situations. They got to get the visas taken care of. So there’s a lot of people, a lot of The Gallus boys and Tyler Bate, I don’t know that all of them fall into this category. Piper Niven’s (Doudrop) been gone is another one.


What’s her name? Is it Davenport? Is that her name? Blair Davenport? What’s her name? The Bea Priestly, her too. But yeah, a lot of them, that’s basically the situation with a lot of them is just getting the visa stuff worked out.

Now that WWE is moving towards NXT Europe, it will be interesting to see which European wrestlers will be involved in the show. If anything, these visa issues are certainly keeping WWE from producing the type of television with all the players they want. Keep an eye on Ringside News for the latest news and updates.
