Jordan Devlin Set To Leave NXT UK After Falling To Ilja Dragunov In A Loser Leaves NXT UK Match

Jordan Devlin is no more in NXT UK.

On the 5/12/2022 edition of NXT UK, Jordan Devlin challenged Ilja Dragunov for the NXT UK Championship in a Loser Leaves NXT UK match. After the two went back and forth for nearly 20 minutes, Dragunov would go on to win the match with his signature Torpedo move -- meaning Devlin will be forced to leave the brand.

Jordan Devlin was an NXT UK original, appearing on the brand as early as the fourth episode of the show. Despite not ever winning a title on that brand, Devlin did hold the NXT Cruiserweight Title in the early months of 2020 before the COVID-19 pandemic. After not defending the title for nearly a year, Devlin met interim Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar in a unification ladder match at NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver in April 2021.

It is currently unknown if Devlin is transitioning to a different brand within WWE or if his contract with the company is up. Fightful will update fans when that situation is cleared up.
