“We won these titles at the first TakeOver, straight into the record books. Our goal is to bring as many eyes onto these titles as possible and setting the tone for what NXT UK can be," said James Drake. “We have had the best talent in the world come after us, so what is next is just to make these the most prestigious titles in the world. All challengers are welcome.”

Following Drake referencing wanting to wrestle The Hardy Boyz, Zack Gibson touted the depth of the modern WWE roster, "WWE has the best talent from around the world, so when people say ‘what are your dream matches?’ it makes you realize how large and good the roster is.
