New Number One Contender Named For NXT UK Championship On 9/23 NXT UK

A-Kid earns a title shot!

In a triple threat to determine the first challenger for new NXT UK Champion, Ilja Dragunov, A-Kid, who himself has already made history as the first ever NXT UK Heritage Cup Champion, has now earned an opportunity to win the biggest prize on that brand in a match that seemed like it was tailor-made for Rampage Brown to win.

Throughout the entirety of the match, Brown asserted his dominance by using his strength advantage over both Nathan Frazier and A-Kid but in the end, A-Kid was able to find an opening and exploited to punch his ticket to his NXT UK Championship match and officially become the first person that Dragunov will defend the championship again since defeating WALTER at NXT TakeOver 36.
