The anticipation for WWE NXT Europe has been building, and fans have been eagerly waiting for its launch. Although it’s been a while, rest assured that it’s still on the horizon.

Back in August 2022, WWE announced that NXT UK would be taking a hiatus as a precursor to the launch of the NXT Europe brand in 2023. While NXT Europe hasn’t kicked off as expected, WWE made some significant talent cuts during the hiatus period.

Despite the lengthy wait and apparent inactivity, some doubted whether WWE would indeed launch the brand in 2023. Previous reports suggested that plans for NXT Europe had been put on hold, awaiting the finalization of WWE’s acquisition by the Endeavor Group, which included plans to merge with the UFC under the new TKO name.

During recent media session to promote NXT Deadline, WWE Hall of Famer and head of NXT creative, Shawn Michaels, was asked for an update on the status of NXT Europe.


With an air of excitement, Michaels revealed that developments are still in progress for the brand. He highlighted WWE’s recent announcements of premium live events in international markets and emphasized Europe’s significance as a hotbed for WWE’s continued expansion.

While the specific launch date may remain a mystery for now, the excitement surrounding NXT Europe remains as vibrant as ever, promising a thrilling addition to the world of professional wrestling. Stay tuned to Ringside News for more updates on this eagerly anticipated venture.
