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. It seems infrastructure plans for NXT Europe are already moving forward.
WWE 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. They released a lot of talent due to this move.
It was also reported that WWE has huge plans for NXT Europe. William Regal previously revealed that NXT Europe was in the process for many years.
While speaking during the NXT Vengeance Day media call, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels provided an update on NXT Europe. Michaels revealed that infrastructure plans for NXT Europe are already moving forward.
For NXT Europe, we are moving forward and that’s one of the things again, we’re starting to, I guess what we call the infrastructure in place, so to me that’s always a positive thing and obviously looking for venues and dates.
We are moving forward on it, obviously, hopefully, in the next couple of months, we’ll be thrilled to have an announcement, given some idea about direction and time. Things are moving forward from an infrastructure standpoint. We actually have meetings about that next week, so hopefully, we find out more information on that as well.
Triple H also recently stated that there has been a lot of progress on NXT Europe. WWE is also looking to bring in new partners for NXT Europe. Stay tuned to Ringside News for more from the world of pro wrestling.
