Ilja Dragunov dominated NXT UK with his incredible resilience and in-ring prowess. The Czar reigned supreme as the NXT UK Champion until an unfortunate injury put him on the shelf. Ilja moved to Florida after NXT UK folded. Tonight, he got a brand new entrance theme song.

Tonight’s edition of WWE NXT featured Ilja Dragunov in an in-ring promo segment. The former NXT UK Champion entered the ring to a remix version of his entrance theme song. The Czar has been using the NXT UK theme ever since he first showed up to NXT several months ago.

Too bad Ilja Dragunov’s new theme isn’t in #WWE2K23, it’s a Banger! #WWENXT

Ilja Dragunov’s promo was interrupted by JD McDonagh. The two men entered into a war of words with each other. The Irish Ace said Ilja was responsible for his ouster from NXT UK.

Ilja fired back by saying he wanted to finish his rivalry with McDonagh once and for all next week or they’ll fight forever. The two men entered into a brawl that continued all the way to the backstage.
