Eddie Dennis Wants To Help Grow NXT UK To Be On A Level Playing Field With Raw And SmackDown

With NXT UK in the middle of a relaunch, Eddie Dennis wants to see the brand grow to be at the same level as WWE's major brands of Raw and SmackDown.

Speaking with Metro, Eddie Dennis commented on how special it is for him to see so many people he's traveled up and down the road with for the last 15 years in major angles on Raw, SmackDown, and NXT.

“I wrestled Keith Lee in a small hall in Cardiff. He’ll remember it,” he smiled. “There were people banging the ring skirts halfway through the match. I’d welcome the opportunity to go with someone like Keith again. I wrestled Drew [McIntyre] many moons ago for a company in Bristol. [Dominik] Dijakovic, people who I had matches which are fondly remembered on the independent scene.”

For Dennis, he says the minute he signed with WWE to be a part of NXT UK, he knew he wanted to grow the brand to those same levels.

“You watch Monday Night Raw, Friday Night SmackDown and NXT. If you were involved in the British wrestling scene for the past 12 to 15 years, it’s littered with people you’ve either shared a ring or locker room with,” he added. “In all honesty, for me, the primary focus since I signed a contract with WWE is to try and grow the NXT UK brand as far as it can possibly grow.”

He continued, “I want it to be the fourth brand on a level playing field, I want us to have six live TakeOvers a year. I want our weekly episodic television show from BT Sport studios to be absolutely must-see TV – not just here in the UK but worldwide on the WWE Network.”

Former NXT UK Champion, Pete Dunne, revealed that he recently acted as a producer during the relaunch of the NXT UK brand. Learn more about that at this link.
